Well folks, the time has come to review more pomades. With U.O. now carrying Murray’s, maybe some of these pomades will become a little more readily available. Let’s just hope not. The fact that some of these pomades are harder to get than others, makes the hunt that much more worth it. And hey, you don’t want everyone to be walking around with badass hair like you, right?
After buying various pomades, I said why not start with the Dax Super-Neat?
Supposedly, it’s one of their newer creations. This time, touching the water-soluble market. Sweet Georgia Brown said the same thing, but their purple tin doesn’t wash out with just water. Let’s see how this one holds up…
For me, I love the fact that different pomades come in different colored tins. It makes your collection look super diverse. Plus, when you see a different colored tin on the shelf, you know you HAVE to check it out.
The tin says “HAIR CREME.” But the consistency is definitely not a creme. It’s very much so a very light, wispy pomade. Not thick, pretty easy to scoop out, and has a pretty good smell to it as well.
^Not sure how that fucked up.
Yeah, I had to use a lot. Not sure if y’all can tell, but I used a pretty hefty amount of pomade. Stand alone, this stuff needs to be caked on. It’s hold isn’t too great for people with thick wavy hair like me. Well, after all, Dax IS made for people with shorter hair.
But hey, it’s a shit ton cheaper than Black & White, plus a little more readily available. You can find it within the U.S. online and at some stores. But definitely a pomade you have to search for.
Here’s the not so end result. I ended up playing with my hair a little bit, which made the pomp fall down a bit. So I ended up going for a slick part. Had I left it alone, it might’ve stayed up and looked sweet.
Not too bad, right? Probably will suit those with finer, shorter hair.
Over all, I like the pomade. I think it’s a decent alternative to Black & White, plus it’s cheap. It has a really nice sheen to it, which is always a plus. I personally think it’s best used as a top coat or for those who want a slicked back look.
But I also think it would be good to be used as a base coat. Meaning, put this stuff on first, before putting on the heavier stuff. With it being washable, it should coat your hairs first, making it a little easier to lift off all that heavier grease. Another little tip for ya!
With the rain coming down right now, we’ll see how water washable this stuff actually is! Then I’ll have a bad hair day!
But until then,
