Since the High Life was more so a WAX than a pomade, I didn’t want to leave it in my hair for more than a day. I kn0w, petroleum isn’t any better. But the wax just attracted EVERYTHING. I don’t need to wake up with a bumblebee in my hair.
So I’m doing a review on one of the last pomades I bought from The Grease Shop… DAX…
First off… I went to like 5 different Walgreens trying to find this shit. They had it on their online shop, but no stores had this stuff stocked! This shit was a bitch to find. Yeah, I could’ve bought it from the Walgreens dot com, but since I already was putting an order on one site, why not?
The packaging is pretty basic. A red tin with white lettering. DAX wave and groom HAIR DRESS on the top of the tin. But under HAIR DRESS it reads, “Made Especially For Short Hair.” FUCK. Am I shit out of luck?
Not much of a scent with this stuff. Which isn’t too bad. Once you start smelling the same scent everyday, you get sick and tired of it. Just like my lady. JUST KIDDING BABES! Anyways.
This has a similar base color like Murray’s, but not as dark. Good or bad? Could mean it’s weaker, because they don’t use as much petroleum. But as soon as I got this on my finger tip, I noticed the consistency was slightly softer than Murray’s. Maybe this stuff is more comparable to Murray’s Super Light. But I haven’t heard too many great/decent things about Murray’s Super Light, so I don’t feel like it’s necessary to try out.
Underneath the lid is just a little advertisement for their other products.
Working this stuff is was pretty easy. Not silky smooth as Sweet Georgia Brown, but not harsh like High Life. As soon as I started to comb through, I felt that this stuff was semi light, so I thought I’d try and do a full frontal…
POMPADOUR that is. (too corny of a joke? Probably.)
Damn tired eyes.
Anyways. Considering how light this stuff is compared to Murray’s, you still get a pretty decent sheen with this stuff! It has a semi decent hold, I need to really try and slick with a fine tooth comb to really get the feel of this stuff. But I have to say, out of all the pomades I bought from The Grease Shop, this is one of my favorites, on it’s own!
Overall: I think this is one of my favorite pomades. It has a decent enough hold, no overwhelming scent, a nice sheen, and is “greasy” enough to keep slicking through out the day. Of course, mixing and matching pomades and such is fun. But sometimes, it gets tiring having to scoop and re-scoop pomade. I think this would be a pomade I can see myself using weeks on end. Only time will tell. Good thing I bought two of these tins!
