This week, I thought I was gonna try out Sweet Georgia Brown (water based) out first.
As soon as I opened it up to take a whiff, I acidentally poked my nose against the pomade.
Got a dab on my finger, and felt that it almost had the exact same consistency as Royal Crown. The little dab on my finger felt a bit thicker than Royal Crown. But as soon as I started to work it into my palms, I knew I was up for disappointment… It was just like Royal Crown…
Looks just like Royal Crown… sigh)
( Not a great pomade on its own, unless you do a gentlemen styled part.
It didn’t have any hold, to hold my hair up. Even as a low profiled pomp. What a disappointment. I’ve been looking forward to trying out Sweet Georgia Brown, and this is the first impression.
Since I knew I would only be using the purple can as a top coat for sheen, and nothing else… (sigh) I decided to try out the blue can. The stronger stuff…
As soon as you open up the tin, you automatically get drawn to it’s rich golden color. Not the dull color of Murray’s, but much much brighter and richer. Pretty neat.
I tried out just a little bit of it, because I still had the purple can in my hair. And it is a noticeable difference. For the better. It’s thicker (that’s what she said… not about me though…) and definitely has a better hold, than it’s water based cousin. I knew that this was gonna be my jam, from the Sweet Georgia Brown family.
My iPhone wasn’t able to capture the colors. Such a drag, this stuff is pretty amazing looking.
This stuff also has the best smell of the pomades I bought. As soon as I started to work it in, you can smell the sweet scent of grapes. Which is pretty awesome. Since you don’t wash this stuff out everyday, you gotta smell good everyday, right?
Unfortunately, since I still had the water based pomade in my hair (didn’t want to wash it out, since I was supposed to be out the door a few minutes after,) I put the blue can in. And by doing so, I didn’t get to enjoy a full experience of the Sweet Georgia Brown. My hair was very light, not that much hold and wasn’t able to pomp today.
I’ll try and work in some more of this stuff later today and take a picture.
