Last week I got a haircut at Freemans; while the cut and the experience were less than stellar, I did get introduced to a new pomade from Japan called Cool Grease.
Up until now, I’ve been using Dax Wave & Groom; while the hold is super strong, I really can’t stand the perpetual film it leaves on my hands and the total inability to wash it out (plus, Dirbab was right… it smells like old man). Cool Grease is a water-based pomade, which means that it washes off my hands and hair with great ease. I don’t think I’ll ever be going back to the petroleum stuff. It also has great sheen and smells much better than most other pomades I’ve tried. I think we have a winner.
