Best water based pomade for under $8?

Started by Daniel Offenbacher. Last reply by alophant Aug 24, 2014. 1 Reply

I use Murray's, but it hasn't been holding well or giving me much height lately, due to the humidity. I live in Maryland and it is very humid, all year round. It doesn't work well because of that. I…Continue

I use Steadfast Pomade. It has a great "ocean" smell, its not greasy, and the hold is pretty good - but I have fine hair so it may be too weak for some people.I got it from a local barber out here in…Continue

Just getting into The Pompadour. A place in Toronto actually specializes in those sort of cuts from back in the day so I got it started about 2 months ago. I don't have enough length for a decent pomp yet so it's more of the Mad Men/Don Draper look. I could use more hair length even for that though. 

I've been using Layrite and Brylcreem (not at the same time) but have picked up some Murray's, Dax Wave and Groom, and Murray's Beeswax. I want to try everything I can that's available locally. Hopefully I can pick up some good tips from this group, and add some of my own as I gain experience.

TTYL,

Tom

So Long Men's Barbers

In my modest little town of 12,000, which has 22,000+ when college is in session, we have two barbers. One is mostly retired and the other can hardly stand up half a day.The State of Illinois saw to it to regulate barbers and hairdressers. Excuse me... cosmetologists. A man, or woman, wanting to be just a barber cannot. They have to go to cosmetology school. That is an expensive school. But the cosmetology lobbyists saw to it to regulate hair cuts and barbers need licensure and weeks of formal…See More

Any advice for a clogged bathroom sink?

Hey all - The sink in my bathroom clogs from time to time. Usually it's no big deal and I just have to pop off the trap and pull out a hairball or what have you from one of the sections.This time I've popped off all the plumbing underneath to dig in with an auger, but it's not doing anything. A look with the flashlight showed a caked-on, black, gunky mess two or three feet into the drain pipe; the auger won't budge it. In fact, I think I may have closed the clog up even more snaking it in…See More
