Well folks, it’s next time!
Since the ever so ‘fine’ folks of USPS lost my pomade from Uppercut, I made time to fit in another pomade to review. This time, Murray’s Superior’s little brother, Murray’s Super Light.
Now, if y’all have read some of my earlier reviews, I’ve tried my hardest to hold off on this stuff. It just never appealed to me. Especially from the stories I’ve heard about this stuff, it wasn’t “all that.” But hey, there are pomades that people see on a regular basis, but don’t wanna waste money trying out, so I do it. Someone’s gotta do all the expensive, dirty work, right?
Now, just like Murray’s Superior, this stuff comes in an orange tin. Murray’s really loves that color, huh? From a profile view, it could be easy to miss it, if it’s in a sea of Superiors. But, the barber pole on the lid is a dead give away. As is the funkadelic Super infront of said barber pole.
Looks like they need to add a 50 to that 1925. There is another version of this lid, I do not have it, but it’s a lot more conservative. A lot more 1925.
Opening it up, I was surprised a bit, because originally, I thought it was a medium weight version of Murray’s Superior. Boy, was I wrong.
This stuff was a very light grease, closer to Royal Crown, than Dax Short And Neat is. Which was a bummer for me, as I had previously tried out a light pomade! I wanted some change dammit!
It’s a little thicker in consistency than the Dax, but not by much. You can tell by its transparency, that it’s just a little thicker. But seriously, it’s not that much different.
This stuff didn’t have the hold that the Dax did. Surprisingly. It was very light and actually went through my hair like water. Seriously, like water. Even though it had a slightly thicker consistency, it’s hold wasn’t quite there. And trust me, I caked this stuff on there!
Clearly, this stuff is meant to be used as a top coat for something really thick (giggity) like Murray’s Superior. But on its own, it doesn’t do all that much for thick pomps. But hey, at least the sheen was good, right?
And keeping up with the orange theme, this stuff actually makes you orange. Don’t ask me how, but I literally became a fuckin Oompa Loompa, as soon as I used this stuff. Needless to say, my kid was scared. But then candy spilled out of me, and she was ok.
While I was able to manage a pomp, it didn’t last long. This stuff is seriously like water for us thick haired folks. As soon as I stepped outside, my hair went to hell and I went back to work in the back of the chocolate factory. Wait… That doesn’t sound right…
This stuff is a little more readily available than Dax Short And Neat, and a little bit cheaper than Royal Crown Hair Dressing. So what it really comes down to is whether or not you can find this stuff, or want to smell like the old man who farts as he walks down the vitamin aisle. But as long as it keeps you greasy, that’s all that matters.
Well folks, I’m all out of pomade for now. But I can promise you this, February, is looking VERY promising. So check back, and I’ll have some of that good stuff to share with the rest of you.
But until then,
Enjoy some of the chocolate from the factory.
I WASN’T KIDDING!
A little much?
