Cock Grease – No X

Well guys, this company is way over due for me. They’ve been around for a minute, but for some reason I just hadn’t gotten around to buying their stuff. I had contacted them a couple times, and had planned to buy their stuff and then would find something else to buy or something. So when I ran into Rea at Viva I talked to her about her stuff and she gave me a smokin’ deal for reviewing her products. Thanks for the deal Rea, I really appreciate it!! And today we are checking out the Cock Grease No X pomade.

This one comes in a 4oz slip cover stainless tin, similar to the Rob’s Chop Shop tins. It has both a lid label and a side label. The side one is an oval label like the High Life labels. It’s just a black oval with a yellow border and says “cock grease no x” on it. The lid label is also black with a yellow border, but this one is a pointed border just inside the edge of the label. In the center is “Cock Grease” with a white and red cock (rooster) above it. There are yellow and black stripes behind everything, kind of looks like a bee. Above and below the name on top of the stripes it says “extra slick” above, and “no x keep it up all day” below. Outside the design but inside the pointed border it says “*hair pomade*” above, and “quality control” below the design. Pretty cool design.

Popping open this tin you’re shown a nice vibrant yellow pomade. It has the color of a lot of ‘hair food’ products out on the market these days. The surface looks a little gritty or grainy along with have a very oily look to it. I’m thinking this one isn’t going to have very much hold, if any at all. The scent is awesome which will make this one a great topper! It’s the sweet smell of vanilla cream cake icing! It took me a long time to place the scent. I kept thinking it smelled like a candy, but couldn’t place which candy it was. Then I was smelling it and a cake popped up on the ol’ boob tube and it clicked. Cake icing, vanilla cake icing! Fantastic smell!

Even of it doesn’t have any hold I can’t wait to get this pomade into my hair just because of the lovely scent! So I dug a finger into the yellow grease. What I pulled out really surprised me. The texture was greasy and light like I expected, but as you can see in the picture it wasn’t a typical grease. It kind of has the gritty texture and kind of rippled in a rough way when I scooped it out. It reminded me of what mud looks like when I run my finger over my chain guard or brake guard on my dirt bike to scrape the mud off of it. The mud kind of ripples in the same way. I know, weird comparison, pomade and mud, but that’s what it reminded me of.

In my hands it got really greasy when I rubbed my hands together. As greasy as it got I’m not sure how it will hold. I’m thinking I may get a low pomp with it, but only time will tell. I was surprised to see the scent kind of die down a little as I rubbed my hands together. Bummer.

When I ran my hands over my hair the grease showed up nice and light yellow on my hair and had some resistance to it as I applied it. The more I worked the pomade in with my hands I noticed it all soak in really nicely, but kept the texture. Because of the resistance I didn’t use the fine toothed side of my comb like I’d originally planned. And as soon as I ran my comb through my hair I immediately flipped it around and used the fine toothed side. It combs like butter, so smooth and easy!

I was still wondering how it is going to hold my hair so I tried to form a pomp. To my surprise I actually got some right with this grease. It was a really light hold, but it stayed pretty well. And boy is this stuff shiny! It has a really nice shine to it, I’m really diggin it! The heat of the day kind of made my hair fall down quite a bit. So by the end of the day I just went with a slick back and a high sheen one to boot.

The more I used it the better the control got with this stuff. I didn’t get any more height, but the hold was better. As the days went on I found my hair staying in place better and better. And the shine kept on gleaming each day. The buildup of this one isn’t too overpowering at all. Mainly because a lot of the pomade comes out of your hair in the night. So your hair and scalp don’t feel smothered after a few days of using this one. I did have a big problem on day 3 though. I just could not get my hair to do anything I wanted it to do that morning. So I threw on a hat and went about my day. Then I wet my hair and dried and reapplied a touch of grease. That time it was fine, I guess I just had a bad hair morning. I also found the scent to be stronger the more you use it which was a nice little turn around for me.

I can see myself using this stuff in the future for when I want a low pomp or as a high shine and good scented topper. If you guys like the lighter pomades, either as stand alones or as toppers, check this stuff out. It’s worth it strictly on the scent and the shine. You can find it from their website

They have 5 different holds, including one for the ladies out there. So if you don’t like light ones they have something for everyone. Thanks again Rea! See y’all at the next stop from this company!

Keep it greasy

    judging from the photos…it does give a lot of body and more definition to your cut and style…wonder how it would do on longer hair interms of hold…..yours seems to fall in place kind of easier than longer hair…..

      It would probably do the same for longer hair, but with the weight of longer hair you might not get as much hold. It may be better for a more slicked look with longer hair.
