It’s time you’ve all been waiting for folks. Well, at least I’ve been waiting for.
I used water soluble pomades exclusively for the last few days, just to make sure that I use this pomade to it’s fullest potential. But did it meet my expectations?
I’ve heard a few good, well… Great things about this pomade. So when my sister told me she was going to London, and asked if I wanted anything, and I knew exactly what I wanted. Mr. Ducktails pomade. And as much of it as she can bring back.
I know that it’s branded under Hairgum, so I already knew how small the tin was going to be. 1.3 ounces to be exact. Now, that’s not a lot of pomade, especially if you’re one of the greasy types, who like to use petrolatum based pomades on a daily. Except I don’t see petrolatum on the tin, nor do I see all that much English on it.
But this is one hell of a tin.
Read the Sweeney Todd reference?
Not a bad looking tin at all. Plus it’s got some badass art work from Vince Ray. But what does the pomade look like?
As I opened up the tin and took a look at the pomade, it had a slightly similar look to it as Black & White. So I was thinking that he probably used the same formula. Nope.
It felt a little bit lighter than Black & White, but a bit heavier than Dax Super Neat. Now, I’m not 100% sure if this is supposed to be water soluble or not. But I can tell you one thing. It sure as hell doesn’t feel like it is.
This pomade, is amazing. It’s hold is somewhat similar to Black & White, but it doesn’t cake on like B&W does. If you’ve used Black & White, you’ll know what I mean.Plus, it’s a whole lot more malleable than Black & White. Meaning, you’ll be styling your hair up like a mother fucker with this stuff… Or should I say, MOTHERKUTTER? Too corny?
It goes on clear, so you don’t have to worry about blending it into your hair before styling. Which is something you have to worry about, with a lot of other pomades. This stuff also doesn’t clump up hardcore in the fine teeth of your combs, you so know you’re not combing this stuff out. This is the good shit.
Now, there honestly aren’t that many new pomades out there that really catch my eye. A few, yes. But for a majority of them, I can care less about em. But this stuff… Man… This is definitely a pomade you need in your arsenal.
It’s scent, is something the ladies will definitely love. It has a ever so slight lemony scent, with vanilla. And fellas, if it brings the ladies closer, you know it’s a good pomade. You don’t wanna remind them of their uncles and grandpas, do ya?
Now, with it being in such a small tin, and you use a relatively decent amount to style, it’ll look like you’re using a whole lot. When it fact, that’s probably true.
Here’s to show how much I used, to style up my hair.
That’s about what… 1/8th of the tin? No idea, I’m shitty at math. But as you can see, it’s a pretty hefty amount. Good thing I have two more of these on the back burner.
I really wish my photos did this pomade justice, but I just couldn’t manage to take a decent flick. So unfortunately, you folks get two pics.
Sorry, only had a couple of hours of sleep. So you guys get my mug twice in one day.
Adam, I have to agree with you man. This is seriously one of the best pomades I’ve ever used, to date. And you guys know my affinity for pomades. As I’ve stressed before, definitely one pomade you guys need to have. But, it’s French and it’s not cheap.
At about $13 +/- per 1.3oz tin, this stuff is a wallet killer. But the way it styles up your hair, it’s also a lady killer. So if it helps you pick up some ladies, why the hell not? Hey, it beats dropping a couple hundred dollars on a hooker or an awkward Craigslist date, right?
Mr. Ducktail, you never cease to amaze me.
If you guys haven’t noticed the trend by now, some of the best pomades around, come from barbers themselves. Hawleywoods, It’s Something Hell’s, Eddies Deluxe, etc etc etc, respectively. These guys have been messing with hair as a profession, and been dealing with grease balls from all over. So they know what works and what doesn’t. And Mr. Ducktail, definitely knows what’s good.
So if you cats got the means, order yourselves a few of these. You won’t regret it. And if you hate it the first time and got spares laying around, shit. Send em my way!
That’s all for now folks. I still got a few more pomades to review and beers to drink.
But until then…
