Blog Updates:

Sorry for the lack of posts as of late, folks.

I decided to take it easy on the postings for a while. Just to let some folks catch up on some of my older posts, since a lot of questions asked as of late, have been about some older posts of mine. Also, the revamp is taking longer than expected, and again, I plan on changing things up a bit!

But do not fret! I’ve got a whole lot more reviews coming up, more clothing related posts and of course, more badass rockabilly tunes to share with you all.  So stay tuned!

Thanks for being patient!

  1. Rebel Rouser my name is Sam. I just recently started following you yesterday after i watched all of your vlogs on youtube. i enjoyed them they were a big help. I am on a hunt for a pomade that is a medium to strong hold. I am currently using Layrite Deluxe Pomade, but my hair is super thick so it doesn’t hold as good as i would like it to. What do you recommend. I have been reading a lot of the reviews on here, but could you point me in the direction of a few medium holds and strong holds that would work for what Im dealing with.

    Keep up the good work your reviews are in fact a tremendous help by the way, so thanks.

    • Sam,

      Glad you dig the videos and the reviews.

      Since you used Layrite, are you still looking for something that’s water-soluble? If so, Grant’s Golden Brand and Lone Star Pomade are both great products. Depending on what sort of hold you’re looking for, they both offer a stronger holding pomade; Grant’s Putty Pomade and Lone Star Super Hold respectively.

      If you don’t mind straying away from the water-soluble side, check out Dax Wave & Groom to start. It’s a similar product to Murray’s Superior, but “superior” in every way. It doesn’t leave your hair with a weird film, which makes it a whole lot easier to wash out. While it won’t wash out with just water, it won’t take more than a few shampoo jobs. It styles easier, has a nice sheen, great hold, and is readily available at Rite Aid and such.

      If you find Wave & Groom to be too heavy for you, Dax High & Tight in the brown camo tin will be the way to go. It’s a tad lighter than Wave & Groom, but just the right amount to make it an entirely different product, and a good one at that. It’s my definite go-to nowadays. While not readily available as Wave & Groom, as you won’t find it at Rite Aid, it’s still worth picking up online.

      Hope this helps man.

  2. Jan,

    Thanks for the feedback i am not to sure whether or not i want to go another water-soluble product, or if i want to try a new kind of product. I think i will try out Dax Wave & Groom so i can experiment with different kinds of pomades to see what i like and what works the best for my hair.

    Also since you did post about conditioners i had a question about that subject. For an in shower conditioner i was wondering should i get a regular conditioner, or should i purchase one of those special “degreaser” conditioners? Does it really matter?

    Thanks again for your help


    • Sam,

      Wave & Groom is definitely a good one to start with. It’s a good basic pomade, that you can easily experiment with, without worrying about wasting money. It also works amazingly well, when mixing it with another pomade, to change up the malleability.

      As far as conditioners go, in-shower products really depends on you. I know some people are allergic to certain ingredients in some conditioners, others don’t do anything beneficial for some, and such. It really depends on what you’re looking for in a conditioner.
