    It’s time for another revisit, but not to just any pomade…it’s THE first homebrew I ever reviewed for this blog. Coming all the way from Australia, allow me to present to you, Crown Pomade Black.

    image

    The black variation of this pomade comes in the gold-tone can as you can see. The natural-colored variation comes in a silver-tone can. It like a simple and clean shield logo on the top and ingredients along with other shit on the back. This is huge upgrade from when we were just looking at his sampler…that was the ghetto glass plug-jar-thingy.

    Scent

    This is also a big step up from the sampler. This one has a nice and sweet cherry vanilla type of smell. Thankfully, it’s not a tacky or overly sugary scent like what we typically see. It a smooth aroma that does well to remain moderate and not overpower your nose.

    Texture

    The pomade actually has a very balanced feel to it. Like…some oil-based pomades can feel really soft and greasy like Royal Crown or hard and waxy like a jar of Grandad’s. It a nice in-between. Tough to the touch but will shed away under pressure.

    Application

    It applies like a Grandad’s Old Fashioned Original (Medium). It’s definitely a waxy pomade without a doubt, but it’s not enough to harm how easy it is to apply.

    Slickness

    The pomade is about average slickness for an oil-based pomade. The was here is a bit sticky in comparison to the dry waxiness of Grandad’s. The majority of your hair will flow all back in one, but if you’re careless, you will get strays.

    Shine

    The shine is also good. Right where I prefer it on an average day, not too much and not too little.

    Strength

    I would categorize this goop as a medium-heavy. Strong enough to style a good pomp, but not too much to overpower your hair. Whether it can tame curls and waves though? I don’t know…

    Endurance

    It did well to fare the entire day. And actually, it is easier to style my pomp halfway through the day than to style it right when I apply the pomade. The wax seems to settle and lose its stickiness after some time. This some settling is not to be confused with hardening like a water-based pomade or gel. However, it does help to keep the hair in place throughout the day.

    Restyleability

    Like I just mentioned before, it is easier to style the pomade after some time.

    Conclusion

    Crown Pomade receives my seal of approval. That’s already been understood from the original review and it’s good to see that the pomade has become an established product in Australia. It’s a good and balanced oil-based pomade…it’s not often you come across people offering black variations. This is important and a huge advantage for people like me with black hair. Can’t fux wit dat white shit.

  11. Video review above or here: http://youtu.be/MA070uahxNw

    Similar to some of the other pomades I’ve reviewed lately, this one too has been long postponed…but I’m very glad to finally get the chance to try it out. I have to admit. It was a lot better than I had expected, and it’s surely to become a daily option for me.

    Allow me to present to you, Steadfast Pomade. If I’m remembering well enough, this baby came out around the same time as Bona Fide. Sadly, it fell into the background at that time and I wasn’t able to review it until now.

    image

    The pomade comes in your standard 4 oz. plastic jar with labeling on the top and face of the jar. Honestly, I wish the label was done better. For a product as fine as this, it deserves some TDB or TIS level design work and labeling. Nevertheless, it conveys the aura of the pomade adequately and really goes hand-in-hand with the scent of the pomade.

    Scent

    The scent is fucking amazing. It literally is. Everyone raves about it…and at least, they’re raving for something worthwhile. This scent is a super legit, fresh cologne smell…it’s not like Suavecito or Type 550.  It’s not sweet like Type 550 and not as ‘harsh’ or ‘hard-hitting’ as Suavecito. It is a beautifully refreshing cologne scent that will please any girl or guy’s senses.

    Texture

    Boom! We got another water-based pomade that is soft like Admiral.

    Application

    Due to its amazing texture, this pomade is very easy to work with and you’ll see this nicely in the video. It’s smoothness allowed me to really apply the pomade underneath my pomp where I need the hold. This is a HUGE advantage for water-based pomades that can do this. 

    Slickness

    Steadfast did very well to grab all the hairs and pull them back. There were very few stray hairs, and they only really appeared late in the day. 

    Shine

    Like most water-based products, not much shine at all. When it’s wet, the pomade gives a lil shine…but once dried, all the shine goes away. Your natural hair’s sheen will still be present, but yeah…no additional shine.

    Strength

    The hold of this product lies between Bona Fide Superior Hold and Suavecito Original. That puts it at a very desirable spot for me where it’s just strong enough to style a pompadour, but not overly strong to misshapen the pomp.

    Endurance

    The pomade did well to maintain my pomp throughout the day. It obviously started giving way near the end of the day…and especially when I drove with the windows down (like a basic b). Nevertheless, it did well.

    Crustiness

    Moderate. Just like your average water based pomade.

    Restyleability

    You’ll need a water source — that don’t ever really change.

    Conclusion

    Steadfast, without a doubt in my mind, receives my seal of approval. It’s a great performing pomade with a even better scent. The goop is some pretty standard water-based pomade but clean in all aspects.

  12. Anonymous said: Is the Top Shelf code still valid? It's not working for me for some reason.

    Right now. It’s only valid on Suavecito.

    THIS WEEKEND. It will be applicable to all the items. If you guys are looking to get shit at the lowest price possible…make use of it. After the weekend, it’ll be back to normal.

    I know it all sounds weird, but we’re trying to get you guys the lowest price possible…and this is how we’re able to do it.
