What do you gents prefer to put in your hair?

I've been fascinated by hair dressings since I was a young kid, blindly applying Wildroot to my head, slicking my hair back and acting cool.

Today, I'm a bit more educated and particular with what I like in my hair. Some of my arsenal includes:

•Layrite (Super Hold) - water based with a clean vanilla scent
•Murray's - one of the original pomade, evryone knows Murray's
•Vo5 Reworkable Putty - no longer being produced, works great with damp hair, washes out easy
•Mirra Pomade - I've only tried it once, worked well with a light pleasant scent

I myself am currently using Brylcreem and American Crew Pomade. I enjoy both quite a bit with no trouble, although lately I've been favouring my Brylcreem. A little dab'll not do ya though, I need a palm cover to work into my hair to get a satisfactory shine and hold. The pomade is great if I'm staying over at a friend's place or have ended up looking a little disheveled, as I only need to wet my hands, run through my hair, and style back to what it was. Easy as that. Helps when I have a boar (hair)brush though.
I've always been a fan of American Crew..they have very good products! My favorite of these is their Fiber pomade. This stuff is really thick and creamy, it holds all day and it smells of delicious citrus (the girl that cut my hair last recommended it. I've also had luck with Gillette sculpting paste, it is very gel like if i remember right. On occasion I have also been known to use Groom & Clean (which my roommate mistook for toothpaste one sleepy morning because of the container shape lol!). I also have a jar of Axe pomade that I might gift to my brother because it has a really funky teenager smell to it that I'm not entirely fond of..the product works well..but if it doesn't smell right I don't use it. Get a Jar of American Crew Fiber if you are a short haired gent..the stuff..is amazing.
I don't like their high price tag!
Whew, tell me about it. I was partially sold until I saw the price on Amazon; $16 for 3 ounces!
"I get that sort of stuff a lot cheaper at wholesale supply shops."

Such as...? Anywhere online? Out here in Montana, we don't have a whole lot of selection when it comes to...well, anything. If I can't get it on the Internet, I'm usually out of luck.
Only when it comes to hair products. Everything else is like a mirror image. Creepy.
Yeah, I agree..it does last a long time and it is a very good product. I have been known to be a frugal guy and to use cheaper stuff, but I just don't like it as well.
I'll second you on the American Crew Fiber. The stuff is fantastic. I've been using it for quite some time now. The admittedly high price tag deterred me at one point to buy a less expensive brand - Axe "Clean Look" pommade, and I gotta admit, it was fantastic, and I have nothing but good things to say about it. The smell wasn't so bad and actually complimented my shampoo (Axe Armor for Dandruff). It held very very well with my short hair. After a while I went back to American Crew Fiber, probably because I was just trying to wean myself off Axe products. But if you can't afford the expensive stuff, I recommend it. Axe makes a decent hair jelly.

Chris - good to see you back here brother!
I've gotta do something when I'm not working, haha.

I was looking for a thread about pomades, couldn't find one, so I had to get right into it.

Yeah, American Crew is my number one choice when I have to dress up. Just a little dime sized amount and I'm good for the day. I particularly appreciate the firm hold styling gel.

How much of the american crew do you use? Recently got some but I don't now how to use it. Definitely don't want to overdo it. 

I actually have the same set up as Liam - I use Brylcreem and American Crew pomade. I have been using Brylcreem more than the pomade, lately. My only complaint about the Brylcreem is the smell. It does have a nice, nostalgic smell IMHO (unable to verbalize details of the scent), but I wish I could get a version with a more modern scent (like American Crew).
