Well, since Dax Super Neat was pretty self explanatory, there isn’t much use to keep using it every day. So, it’s time for one more pomade review! This time, I’m trying out Luster’s S Curl.
The packaging is pretty neat. It looks to be a whole lot more modern, based on the color choice. The blue tin with orange lettering and white trim is a nice touch. But really, when you see this, you don’t think it’s something the cool cats used back in the 40s and 50s. But it was heavily used in the 90s with hip hop artists. Go figure. They must also be Knicks fans.
When you look at the color of pomade, and you see how dark it is, it’s usually a sign that you’re gonna be treading in some heavy shit. As soon as I took a look at the pomade, I knew it was gonna be like Murray’s. But boy, was I wrong!
If you guys can’t tell from my indentation in the pomade, in the tin, then you guys just do not understand. This shit, is THICK. And I’m not talking Kim Kardashian thick, I’m talkin those broads they use to smother dudes. 400lbs plus thick.
Can you believe it? A pomade thicker and heavier than Murray’s Superior? I thought this stuff would’ve been a tad lighter. Fuck… Blew my mind! This stuff was harder to scoop out than High Life Heavy. And if you’ve read my past review on that, you’ll know how much I hated scooping that out! This stuff is intense.
With it being a lot heavier than Murray’s Superior, does it mean it’s just as greasy? Well kids, it’s not. Considering the weight of this pomade, it’s probably one of the least greasy pomades out there. Your hands won’t be greasy with this stuff. There is pretty much absolutely no sheen with this pomade.
The hold is pretty nice. Really heavy. This stuff is meant to straighten out wavy and curly hair. And guess what, it does just that. So you kids crying about your wavy hair, get some of this and it’ll straighten you out. No pun intended.
The hold for me, was a little TOO intense. I had to use a blow dryer to soften this stuff… But that hardly put a dent in this stuff! The blow dryer literally did not dent this stuff! It was a little hard when I put it on and combed through, and after a good blow drying, you’d think this stuff would’ve melted. NOPE. And I couldn’t leave the house with helmet head. So what did I do?
A little bit of Dax Super-Neat did the trick! Just a couple of dabs of it really softened this stuff up, making it a shit ton easier to work with. And here’s the end result.
Don’t worry, I fixed that hole right after.
Not too shabby. The lack of sheen is kind of a let down. But you can’t have everything, right?
The combination of both Dax Super-Neat and Luster’s S Curl is a nice one. For those who want high pomps, this is your combo. The lightness of the Super-Neat mixed with the stiffness of the S Curl will help give you a nice high pomp, without any extra weight holding you down. Definitely a combo I recommend.
