It’s been 3 days since I’ve started messing around with Layrite. And so far, it has lived up to it’s title. But there are some little details, no other review has noted. Nothing bad, but something that I feel should be pointed out, so those who decide to try this out, don’t get spooked.
I noted in my previous post, that this stuff hardens. But today, I happened to reveal a bit more about it. As most do, or should do, is wet comb your hair to style it. It just helps everything style the way you want it to. Well, by doing so with Layrite, the finished product is hard. And not like a slightly soft hard, but a hard hard. (Sorry, I just had to write it out like that, it sounded funny.) It actually hardens like a gel, after a good wet combing. Surprise! I didn’t expect that! The other day that I used it, I didn’t wet comb my hair, so today showed that side of this pomade.
I also noted that it doesn’t have much of a sheen. Well, if you slick during the day, you actually lose all, if any sheen that you had. Some people prefer no sheen, so this would actually benefit them. But it still retains the hold, but just a “soul less pompadour,” as I would see it. The sheen is the soul of your pompadour people!
Lastly, this stuff doesn’t tame your hair all that much. The wavy parts of my hair, stay wavy. So that is kind of a bummer. But it’s a personal problem rather than a general one. So only those with wavy hair would have that problem. You lucky straight haired assholes! Just kidding. But seriously though… Lucky.
The only draw back I really see with this type of pomade… Is that since it is washable, you pretty much have to press restart, everytime you want to slick. Meaning, you can go through a tub pretty quickly, as opposed to the pomades you leave in your hair. You could always have a base layer of a thicker pomade, and then use this stuff on the top. So you end up using less than you normally would have to.
But all in all, I’m still satisfied with Layrite. Donnie Hawley really knew what he was doing! I would highly recommend this pomade, and would definitely buy it again.
So this week, I’m cutting this pomade short. Since it is pretty straight forward and direct. I’ll be using Deluxe tomorrow, and should have a review by the end of the week.
So until then folks, get your hair pomp’d high because it’s OKTOBERFEST!
