Slicker Thn Hell Pomade

Hey guys, I’m back on a more regular reviewing schedule now that everything has been taken care of. I am starting a couple lines as of now and will kind of bounce around between them. This time it’s a line of pomades coming from one the best Tattooers out there, Mr. Joe Capobianco. I’m starting with his Slicker thn Hell pomade first.

After finding out he made his own pomades I had to get in touch about getting some. So I emailed him and got a response that same day, making an awesome first impression. He said he needed my address and that he would get me out some samples straight away. So I emailed him back with my address and a thank you. A week later I got my samples.

Now he didn’t send me the regular size, but he did send me the stickers of each pomade which I showed above. This sample comes in a little 1oz slip cover tin with a sticker on the lid. The sticker is a white rectangle with red and black writing. The red is “Slicker thn Hell Hair Pomade Sample.” The black is their website. In the regular label it’s black with yellow writing. In the center it says “Slicker” in some badass lettering with “thn Hell” just underneath it in the ring. Above it is “Pomade” in the ring around the “slicker.” On either side are some stars, above the ring it says “cause chicks dig it slick,” and below it is the website.

When I opened the little tin I saw the creamy yellow pomade. It looks kind of like banana pudding in color, just not as shiny. The scent on this pomade a sweet ginger smell with a kind of citrusy acidic after scent, at least that’s what I pick up from it. Great smell, kind of reminds me of a nice chai tea.

I went to go dig my finger into the pomade and I pulled out a very soft pomade. I was kind of expecting that because the name is “Slicker thn Hell” after all. The texture reminds me a lot of Levin’s super soft, which really bummed me out. That pomade didn’t do anything for my hair and I don’t think this one will either. But hey, it will make an amazing smelling topper!! Let’s get to it.

I rubbed it around and it surprisingly didn’t lose its texture and get oily like I thought it would. Maybe it will hold more than Levin’s! As I started to put it in my hair I was quickly reminded of Royal Crown Hair Dressing, it went in the exact same. And the smell really exploded as I was combing it around which was also very easy to do. Just like combing any light pomade. It distributed very quickly which was nice for me.

As I started to try and sculpt a pomp I was shocked at how high I was able to go. I got it to a nice medium pomp!! This stuff really came out of left field with its hold. I was super stoked at how it held my hair. And this stuff is shiny!! Very happy with this pomade all around so far, great job with this one Joe! It held all day long too, the only time it lost any of its hold was when I went for a bike ride. It was pretty windy and over 90° outside so the pomade got pretty soft. However it recombs very easily and goes right back into place so I was good.

After a great first impression with this pomade I couldn’t wait to see how it was the second day. So I greased up as usual and was pleasantly surprised at how high my hair was the second time around. Another full inch taller than last time. The build up with this pomade is really really nice, it gives you a little more control without being too tacky in your hair. And like the first day it held all day long, and shone like a new penny. I could smell my hair all day long the second day, one thing I really dig about pomades.

I gotta say, I was really surprised by this pomade! More so than any other pomade I’ve used. I totally expected this to be only good as a topper or for slick backs and gentleman’s parts. But nope, this stuff holds a tall pomp!!! Fantastic job with this pomade Joe you really knocked it out of the park!! I can’t wait to try the next one and see what’s in store with it. You guys absolutely have to try this pomade!! You can find it on his website

    Thank you about the review

    I had my eye on it for some time, I plan to buy the Slicker Thn Hell Devils Doo Probably next month, But I’m afraid of being disappointed, I do not know how the texture look and I do not know if he straighten my curls, I hate pomades that Difficult to Scooping from the jar and Not manage to straighten my curls, If you can Please review the Devils Doo next time It would be great, Then I will decide whether to buy

    I found a cheaper place to buy the Slicker Thn Hell,

    http://joecapobianco.bigcartel.com/category/hair-pomade
    Here it costs me $24.00 to ship to Israel and THE HOPE SHOP it costs $27.00 to ship to Israel

    I bought two weeks ago three pomades – Sweet Georgia Brown Blue, B’s Grease, DAX High & Tight Awesome Hold and I hated them None of them managed to tame my curls and they pulled some hair from my head

    the texture of Mr. Ducktail is the best In my opinion and this is the best pomade i’ve ever used, The reason I did not continue to buy this pomade is Because of the smell, the smell Do me a stomach ache, Coke with Cherry Not fit together, i plan to buy the Hairgum Strong Wax, I have a good feeling about this

      Try the hair gum regular as well. The devils do will actually be the last in line but I will review it soon. If you liked those 3 try Dax green and gold, Murray’s nu Nile, sweet georgia brown red, black and white, and the schmiere hart and mittel. I think you’ll like those. Stay tuned for the Ginny grease and devils do, along with some other awesome pomades this month!!

      Cheers,

    have You tried the Hairgum regular? and If so how the hold?

    I didn’t like those 3 pomade, SGB Blue, B’s Grease, DAX High & Tight, None of them managed to straighten my curls and they pulled some hair from my head

    About DAX Green & Gold is hard to Scooping and Combing this pomade or easy?

    Murray’s nu Nile and schmiere hart I will buy soon, the mittel Later

    SGB red not for me, I didn’t like the blue So the Red probably be worse for my curls

    I have black and white and is good but not in the sun

    i’m searching pomade that similar in the hold and the texture to Mr. Ducktail, Mr. Ducktail was perfect for my 5 inch curls hair, If you know pomades that similar to Him please let me know
