    Hey man, awesome blog you’ve got. Was wondering if I could get your advice on something. I myself have thick curly hair and stick to water based pomades. Currently I use Layrite Super Hold and find that this works best, but unfortunately doesn’t have enough shine. Is there anything that has a similar or almost the same hold as Layrite Super Hold but is more shiny? I’m considering Bona Fide, Shiner Gold, Bada Bing. But unfortunately none of those are listed on ebay, and from any other site it costs a lot to ship to my country. Any pomade suggestions for me?

      Hey there,

      Thanks for the kind words, glad you like the blog. You can always use Layrite Super Shine as a topper to the Super Hold. Other water bases I recommend are shiner gold, Bada bing, Suavecito firme, cock grease xxx, Layrite deluxe, cool grease(concrete, xx, z, cockgrease, and clay), JS Sloane heavyweight, lone star heavy, acme axl grease, Murray’s edgewax, and grants golden brand.

      Heavy pomades I recommend are, black jack double down, cock grease xx, Frankengrease, Dax green and gold, grim grease, dr rubins firm, high life (heavy, voodoo brew, voodoo brew ii), the iron society firm, NorCal knockout, robs chop shop slickW50, Kustom Kreeps death grip, rockabilly deluxe magazine’s pomade, Murray’s superior, multi purpose putrescence, Pompking, switchblade Pompadours sc pomade, s curl wave control, duke wave pomade, American greaser supply super 90wt, tipsy pomade, schmiere (hart and knupplehart), uppercut monster hold, and gasoline grease.

      You can find a lot of them on or or or the ones you can’t find on those sites, just google the name of them and info should pop up in there for you to track them down.

      I hope that helps, let me know if there’s anything else you need help with.

      Best of luck,

        Hey, thanks for your reply/recommendations.

        I was specifically wanting to know if you can recommend any heavy AND shiny water based pomades. Like I said, I use Layrite Super Hold. And I’ve also tried Suavecito Firme (again far from shiny enough).

        What would be for example the heaviest water based pomade that’s also shiny?

        Also, I don’t really like using toppers haha.

      Thanks man I appreciate the kind words about the blog! I hope you find some useful info here and you enjoy the reads. Let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see reviewed! Also, thank you very much for your service! I salute you sir.


  4. Covent says:

    Hey I am relatively new to pomades and all I have really used is Uppercut and Layrite. I would really like to thank you for your reviews. It gave me so much more insight on pomades. :))) And may i know how much is it to ship a tin of atomic pomade to singapore? 🙂

    • jchmotox57 says:

      Hey there,
      Yeah Layrite is a decent water based, I didn’t like Uppercut though. Thanks for the kind words I appreciate it! I’m glad I could help. Um I think it’s like $14-15 for shipping to Singapore.


  5. Ray says:

    I have a Catch 22 that I could really use your expertise with. First is that I have really thick, straight, and unruly hair. The type that just poofs straight out of the shower. So far, the only stuff that truly holds it down all day are heavy petroleum based pomades like Murrays. However, I also have this condition called hyperhidrosis which is a fancy term for sweaty hands. And as you know, water and petroleum don’t mix well. So it can be a real pain to heat up and work some Murrays in my hands and distribute to my hair since my sweat ends up making it all clumpy.

    That said, can you recommend some good pomades that help with my hair type, but that are easier to work into my hands? I have tried some water-based products like Layrite, and have had some success. But they just dont give me quite the same hold and all day workability like the petroleum based pomades.

    Much appreciated!


  6. Anthony says:

    Hey I’m new to AZ and I was wondering If you know of the best place to buy pomade locally….If not I can always buy online
    Much appreciated

    • jchmotox57 says:

      Hey Anthony,

      The only place I know of that carries actual pomade and not ringing gels/water bases is Shirts & Things in Mesa, but they only have the lucky 13 stuff. There really isn’t anywhere that carries pomade out here unfortunately.


  7. Brandon Nunez says:

    Hey my names Brandon I’m from south Texas the only pomade I’ve gotten is from the axe company so I’m new to this stuff so I wanted to learn more about it what I wanted to ask is pomade only for making pompadours and what type of pomade should I use for my hair. My hair is medium length and straight I’m aiming to make my hair look like Bradley coopers hair thanks also awesome blog man it’s really informative

    • jchmotox57 says:

      Hey Brandon,

      I hate to break it to you, but that stuff isn’t pomade. Not even close.

      Pomade is used for all kinds of hair styles. Pompadour, contour, quiff, slick back, waterfall, flat top, flat top with fenders, wedge, high and tight, undercut, etcetera etcetera.

      I would go to the sites I listed in my FAQ and start with a couple of each hold and then go from there. Mediums and heavies sound like they will be your best bet. But don’t overlook lights, there are some great light pomades as well. You can also check out the Facebook group Addicted to Pomade when you get more familiar with pomades and whatnot. Great group, lots of stuff to learn and share!

      Thanks for the kind words about the blog I appreciate it!! Hope this helps man.


  8. Luis says:

    Hi JC. Maybe for christmas i get some of your atomic pomade. Where can i get it?

  9. Thanks! And what does JC mean? I don’t know what your misterious name is hahaha

  10. Vahid says:

    Hey jc i’ve read alot of your reviews and i think you should make a youtube acount man. Id love to see how you do that glorious pomp.

    • Thank you very much for reading, I appreciate it. I have had a quite a few requests/suggestions for a youtube channel for videos. I may do that in the future, right now I don’t have anyway to take videos, but it could change soon. I will keep everyone updated if I decide to make a channel.

  11. Andy says:

    Hey awesome blog and also very helpful. A friend of mind gave me some black jack double down pomade and loved it. Holds my hair really nice the problem I’m having is that I’m almost out and can’t seem to find it anywhere. HELP!!! lol would be really awe

    • Andy says:

      Sorry didn’t finish but need help finding it online do you know of any websites that has it? Please and thank you soon much!

  12. mrjynx says:

    you should try make your own pomade. there is lots of instructions on the net. maybe you could make something that is exactly what you are wanting without having to spend a fortune to do so.

  13. steven says:

    I currently use layright super hold and love the results. But I was wondering if theirs a stronger water-based pomade for my thick wavy hair.

    • Well the only water based pomades are mediums and lights, so I wouldn’t recommend those. But there are lots of ringing gels, like layrite super hold, that will work good for you. Try slick devil, bada bing, and murrays edgewax to start.


  14. GC says:

    Hey guy! Your review on the Flat Cool Grease was nice but what’s really in it? It’s in Japanese. I have allergies to scents so wondering what the ingredients are. Would appreciate any info or a reference. Thanks pal!

  15. Ray says:

    Hey JC, I am wondering if it’s possible for you to review the product lineup of Hanz de Fuko? Try checking their website, they got a cult followers going on there.

    • Hey Ray,

      Well anything is possible, sure bud. I do have quite a few in the lineup currently, so it will be a little while before I could get to them if I picked them up. However, if they were to just send me some stuff then they would take a little more priority than what I currently have in the lineup. Feel free to shoot them an email and let them know you’d like to see me review their stuff if you’d like. I will definitely check out the site, and I may email them as well. Thank you for the comment and recommendation of products to try out! I definitely appreciate it. Take care!


  16. Oscar says:

    Just bought some Frankengrease from you and I had to say, it’s awesome. I usually use water based murray’s edgewax but wanted the traditional shape that grease gives. Incredible product, I’ll definitely buy again.

    • Hey Oscar,

      That’s awesome! I am glad you like my pomade man!! Makes me happy when people like the pomades I make and give me good feedback. I really appreciate the kind words and that you will be a repeat customer. Have you checked out my Kustom Brew pomade? With that what you can get any hold including Frankengrease, with any scent and any color that you want!


  17. D. WhiteCloud says:

    Awesome blog AND reviews man.
    I was reading your Tres Flores review (glad to see I’m not the only one who uses that stuff :}) and read that you were native and but you had a foothold in Hispanic culture as well as your tribe’s culture (or I was just reading into it too much).
    I was wondering, what tribe(s) does your family belong to? We belong to the Oneida & Ojibwe tribes, but just about everyone who was born out in California (me included) come off as a Hispanic the first time someone meets us. Maybe it’s the way we dress, the music we listen to, and how we comb our hair? Who knows, lol.
    Anyways, keep up the good work bro!

    • Thanks man, I’m glad you like them. You’re definitely not the only one, tons and tons of people use Tres Flores. It’s one of my favorite old school pomades. And hands down one of the best, if not the best solid brilliantine around. No you weren’t reading too much into it. I’m not as into my native culture as I wish though. I wasn’t raised around it a lot as most of my relatives had passed that were grounded in that culture and whatnot. I know for sure I have Navajo and Cherokee roots, and had a few Blackfoot relatives, and my grandma said we also had some Hopi relatives. Those and the Navajo family members were all on my dad’s mom’s side of the family. My Cherokee heritage comes from my grandma on my mom’s side, her dad’s side of the family. And her mom, my great grandma’s dad’s side of the family, so my great great grandpa’s side were also Cherokee.

    • Sorry the app sent the reply before I was done typing. This app really pisses me off sometimes! Hahahaha yeah me too, especially because I was steeped in Hispanic culture growing up. More the way we carry ourselves and whatnot. Cause I dress fairly different all the time. My wife says I have a dozen styles lol. Thanks man I will! Stay tuned, there’s a bunch of really awesome stuff coming up over the next couple months!! Take care, and talk soon.

      Stay greasy,


  18. Hi JC

    Are you based in Dallas or Austin, Texas by any chance?

  19. Mike says:

    Hey, question for you. I recently starting using a pomade for the style I’m going for, and have gotten into using Suavacito Firme Hold. I love the smell, look and hold that I get, but was wondering if you had a recommendation for a shiny slicked back look that I can comb through or run my fingers through without the firmness (think Danny Zuko and the T Birds type of comb through). Thanks

    • Hey mike,

      Ok gotcha. So do you prefer the ringing gels like Suavecito over pomades? Or is that just the first product you came across? I would recommend Atomic Pomade, or Steel Toe Spit Shine, or maybe the Silver Dollar ones. You can use those two together as a combo for good hold and high shine. The Silver Dollar Pomade will give you nice hold and control to keep your hair in place, and then the Silver Dollar Hair Dressing will give you a polished chrome like shine when you use it as a topper with the pomade as the base. Or you can even mix them together in your hand to make a lighter medium pomade with super high shine. The pomade has good shine on its own, but the hair dressing is a super high shine. The Atomic one will give you a good shine too and nice control while also being good for your hair. The Steel Toe one gives you super high shine with good control and acts like a leave in conditioner, rejuvenating your hair when it gets all dried out from using ringing gels like Suavecito that dry it out and make it coarse. The silver dollar ones also are good for your hair and scalp too like the other two are. You can find them all on etsy, here’s the link for you;

      I hope that helps man. If you have any other questions, feel free to comment or shoot me an email and I will answer any questions you have and can recommend some other great pomades for both good hold and good shine for ya bud. Good luck with your pomade and styling endeavors, and stay tuned for some awesome product reviews coming up soon!

      Stay slick,
