The moment that everyone has been impatiently waiting for… My review for the ever so elusive Dixie Peach!
Being one of the popular pomades back in the day, it’s only typical for pomade lovers of today to go goo-goo over it. It doesn’t help that this is another pomade that falls into the what-Elvis-used folklore. I mean, even my barber used this stuff when he was younger and asked if it was in my hair one day! (But it wasn’t.) Regardless who used it, this is definitely a classic pomade that needs to be reviewed and shared with the rest of the world!
Word on the mean streets of the internet is that, this stuff is discontinued. Some people will say it has been for decades, I say at least for 5 or so years. Personally, I don’t care, as I came into a pretty decent stash of this stuff not too long ago! (Don’t worry, I plan on helping folks get some of this, in the near future.)
Enough with the small talk, let’s get to it!
It shouldn’t be hard to spot this stuff on the shelf, if you’re lucky enough to come across it! It comes in its classic plastic container, in two sizes: a 4 oz container (pictured) and a 7 oz tub.
With the classic light teal and yellow label, this stuff will pop off the shelf and you’ll automatically gravitate towards it. And if you don’t you’re missin’ out!
Opening it up, you smell it’s amazing peach scent. Yes folks, it’s not just a name, this stuff really does smell like peaches! And yes folks, the ladies love it!
In the container, the consistency looked to be light and wispy, similar to Black & White. So I had originally believed it would be best for a top coat. But after scooping it out, I noticed that it feels rather thick. The thickness of the product has to do with its sticky texture. This will be a major styling factor, so keep readin’!
Before putting it in your hair, the pomade is quite sticky. Which is good, because the stickiness of the product will help keep your hair together. Honestly, I can’t think of any product that has the same sticky texture like this stuff… So for those folks who are worried about splitting in their pomps, *wink wink* take note.
Combing it through is like butter. Lovely butter. Love butter. Slicking this stuff through, you just have the feel of cool. The same cool the cats we admire today had. That’s a good enough reason to want Dixie Peach, right!? It just has that classic feel to it, that no other product I’ve used so far has. Simply put, I’m in love!
When I initially used the product a little while back, I used it as a top coat. I didn’t really take note of the stickiness enough, to consider it a good standalone product. I just thought that it would give a nice sheen. I mean, it does and it does so, ever so nicely! So take a look at how it works as a simple top coat:
Realizing the properties, I now know that this stuff is amazing on its own. Greased up, slicked through, this stuff held everything in place, and real proper like!
Look at that sheen!
To my surprise, this stuff held up in the sun and wind. When it had slightly melted in the heat, it only added to the sheen. Definitely a good thing!
Now, the sticky texture is what really makes this stuff work. It kept my hair as high as I had originally styled it, the hairs did not split whatsoever, and just kept everything nice and tight throughout the day. Very little slicking was done to fix any stray hairs.
Overall, this stuff is amazing. Easily became one of my favorites. Not just because it’s discontinued or hard to find, but because it’s an all time classic! You can’t go wrong with that!
Regardless of your hair type, I believe this is something to have in your collection. You’ll see a Murray’s tin in everyone’s collection, so why not some Dixie Peach!
As I mentioned earlier, I plan on helping some cats add Dixie Peach to their collections. So, I will be having these for sale, very shortly! So don’t forget to check back!
Hope you guys enjoyed this review. It’s definitely a classic that needed to be reviewed. Sorry it took so long! But hey, it’s worth the wait, yeah?
Until the next time.
