Murray’s, is just the staple pomade, in any ones house hold. It’s just a fact. Whether you still use it or you don’t, you can bet everyone with a pompadour has a Murray’s tin laying around.
Like some, I’ve moved away from Murray’s. Considerably. I haven’t used Murray’s Superior for a few months. Other pomades have been able to take it’s place. But, it’s just so hard to get rid of a classic. So, I decided to use some today.
I figured, I have a brand new tin of Superior, just tried out Super Light, why the hell not? Let’s make a quick and simple cocktail!
I thought I would try and mixing the two together. Didn’t work out all that well. Superior is too thick and Super Light is a little too light, to break down and mix evenly with the Superior. It wasn’t too bad, but didn’t mix in well in my palms. Maybe if I had mixed it up in a little dish or something, would’ve worked out a bit better.
The part that everyone dreads when it comes to Murray’s pomade, is combing it. With Murray’s Superior lightly broken down, thanks to Super Light, it was a lot easier to comb the pomade through. You won’t see me straining!
The ratio of Superior to Super Light, was about 80% Superior and 20% Super Light. Super Light, if you hadn’t noticed from my review, is VERY light. Though it did break down Superior considerably, I was still able to retain the hold. And hey, that’s what everyone loves about it, right?
Being able to retain a the hold of a heavy pomade, while keeping it malleable as a medium weight pomade, is what we all need. I was able to pomp relatively high today, and keep it that way. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself.
If you cats wanna renew your vows to Murray’s Superior, definitely look into adding some Murray’s Super Light into it. It’ll put Murray’s Superior in a whole new light. And maybe get some people back to using it, as well. Oh yeah, IT DOESN’T MAKE YOUR HAIR FALL OUT!
Until the next time folks…
