Sorry for the delay folks, between me getting sick and my kid getting sick, pomade reviews have had to be postponed. Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about you, Dax!
Up next, we have Dax Short And Neat. Now, for the most part, Dax pomades are meant for short hair. I gues they really want to keep the 1950s, 1950s, eh? Well, this hair dress is no exception. But let’s see what it did with my long hairs.
If you need to find this stuff, it shouldn’t be hard to spot. It comes in a really vibrant blue tin, with white lettering. This tin will literally pop off the shelf, if you manage to walk past it. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen it in places like CVS or Walgreens around me. But I’m sure ya’ll got beauty supply shops around, with wigs and shit. So it should be there, along with it’s cousins in various colored tins.
“For That Short Natural Look.” Well, sorry I have long hair shaped into a pompadour!
Opening it up, you see grease, somewhat similar in look between Sweet Georgia Brown (purple) and Royal Crown Hair dressing. So when I look at it, my guess is that it is the non washable, greasy version of it’s purple cousin, Dax Super-Neat.
Well folks, let me tell ya.
It was just as I suspected. The greasy, non washable version of it’s purple clad cousin. It’s hold is very light, comparable to Royal Crown. The only difference between the two, is that the Dax was less greasy.
It didn’t hold my hair all that well, considering that it was made for short haired folks, and I have longer hair. But it didn’t do too bad. While the hold wasn’t there for me, it did allow me to shape my hair nicely. I was able to get a very conservative pomp goin on, and hey, those aren’t too bad, right?
Not too bad, if only it was able to keep shape, with some hold. But I do love the sheen it gives!
These greasy types of pomades, are usually good for the traditional wet hairstyles, side parts, slight contours, slicked backs, etc etc. So cats with pomps, won’t really get too much out of this stuff. Aside from using it for it’s sheen, which is something every pompadour needs.
The only application I can see myself using this stuff for, is for a top coat, for extra sheen. It doesn’t have enough hold to keep my sides down, unless I caked this stuff on. Something I’d rather not do. But for a top coat, it works great. Plus, you won’t have to smell like your grandpa. Unless you want to…
Well, that’s all I have to say about this one folks.
But until next time,
