Today’s pomade is Schmiere Special Edition Hart “Garage Grease.”
On the tin is their classic black bird, but on this one he has a racer’s helmet with goggles on and next to him it says “Garage Grease.”
Opening the tin you see a nice vibrant green color to the pomade. When you take a whiff of the green grease you get a lovely sweet, floral soapy scent. It reminded me of this hand soap my grandmother always had that I was never allowed to use.
Scooping this stuff out was not the easiest. It’s got a waxy consistency and is a little harder than their mittel
hold. It did soften up just like the Mittel in my palms, but with a waxy feel to it.
Putting it in my hair, it goes in as easy as the Mittel, but was a little harder for me to comb into all of my hair. Far easier than Murray’s, but not as easy as the medium pomades out there. Overall I like how it went in and spread throughout my hair!
I was able to get some nice height with this stuff. It has a nice semi-gloss sheen to it. I do like more shine than it gives, but at least it’s not a matte pomade. My hair was a little unruly today and I couldn’t get the front to do what I wanted it to! The crown didn’t want to stay and I had a gap in the right side of the front, but it wasn’t because of the grease. I just had a bad case of bed head.
So my judgement on this special edition from the rumble 59 line? Really like this stuff! My wife doesn’t like the smell that much so I probably won’t wear it around her, but I will use it as often as I can!
To close this review up I have one more outburst I have to share. I used this stuff on the first day of the annual Arizona hardcore fest “Within These Walls” and it held up great! After 5 1/2 hours of moshing pretty hard for 8 different bands, I was still able to comb a pomp!!! Holy crap this stuff is awesome! Granted my pomp wasn’t as high as it was when I combed it in the morning. I was still able to get a decent do going!
You guys should go grab a tin of this stuff, it will be one of the best greases in your collection!
Til next time!
