What pomade/gel/wax does /fit/ use?
To keep this /fit/ related how well does it handle sweat and natty gains?
I use pic related, causes acne if you're a fucktard and rub that shit on your face
sweat doesn't do much
Your hairstyle too?
just heat it up fucktard
pic related my haircut
not me btw
I have a few different pomades that I use
My favorite is probably Murray's Super Light. If you use too much of the Murray's Superior and it feels really good the next day that's what Super Light feels like that the first day.
I also like Dapper Dan Deluxe as a good water base.
But Murray's Superior is super awesome, just be careful and don't use too much. It's also only like $3 a tin so that's cool.
do you rub it until warm or blowdry it on
when I have DOMS I just leave the tin halfway in a bowl of boiling hot water when I shower and take when it's time I just take it out, pretty smooth
ever tried suavecito, pretty overrated but smells good, and water based too, still prefer oil based
I actually fucking hate suavecito. It's just so crusty once it gets hard. I don't really like firm holds though so that's just my opinion. I like still being able to put my fingers through my hair.
that's exactly the main thing I hate about gels/water based pomades
how dry it makes your hair
it's a shame half of /fit/ is too distracted waited for pianoman's new vid
This brand is such a bitch to wash off. I use a mix of olive oil and shampoo. How does everyone else get it off?>>35567415
>too insecure to talk about grooming
You're an insecure loser who is ugly.
I use American Crew Fiber.
Its ok, but open to suggestion.
My hair is curly when medium length but when short its pretty straight/wavy.
Anything thats strong enough to keep it straight when I slick it?
Well dawn dish soap works really well
But if it's really that hard to get out then you probably used too much. Honestly keep grabbing a tiny bit at a time, like a pea sized scoop each time and rub it in a little bit at a time. you need barely any to actually make it work.
I don't use gel, but I use l'orea' sleek it frizz vanisher cream
It's meant to just reduce frizz, but I have naturally very poofy hair, and it keeps it relatively close cropped for most of the day given that I shower in the morning.
I need a haircut
Eh, I thinks its more of a regional thing rather than a "real man" thing. Where I live most men keep their shit natural (by which I mean unstyled but nicely cut), the only ones who visibly use gels and shit are car salesmen and club slavs.
It may be weather related, especially this time of year. Local temp is under 10F, which is well below freezing for our euro friends, and if you spend any amount of time outside you want some sort of head covering (that'd mess up your styled hair) to prevent frostbite and skin peeling.
Personally I don't use anything on my hair but water.
This is the shit. Keeps your hair, dry and black.
I used Murray's for a very long time (about 12 years) and switched to Black and White pomade a few years ago. It's lighter and washes out easier but has good hold and low shine.
Would not recommend if you want gravity to have any effect on your mane, but it's good shit if you rock a flat top or spike your hair up during the summer months
Mostly I just use water though
