I guess this is the new "hair" thread

General discussion, shows, and everything else.

Postby Fuck off. » Mon Aug 01, 2011 5:01 pm

So I have been using Murray's and Royal Crown for a while now, but neither seem to hold my hair after a few hours. Can anyone recomend something a bit stronger?

Murrays cant hold your hair? How long is it?

I'm a layrite fan personally.

when its hot out nothing will hold. its just gonna melt. You can hit it with a shot of hairspray to help, though. I did the murrays (ultra light in the winter, regular in the summer) for a few years, got tired of feeling greasy all the time, and staining pillow cases. Believe it or not Axe makes a water based pomade that you can get anywhere for under $6.

How have you used murrays and royal crown? Those are at two opposite ends of the spectrum.

my boyfriend used a bunch of shit, murrays, layrite, la bella, and royal crown. you may also need to reshape the cut,if it's not holding, \ so go get a trim.

I bought this recently because I was out of layrite and had a hot date that night. It was pretty good. Held up for maybe 5 hours, wasn't too "thinning" like some cheap pomades, and washed out great as expected.

My hair is 6-8inches on the top, and like a 3 on the sides faded. I use Murray's once a week and then I just throw in some Royal Crown to tame a few strays.

murrays works wonders for me, and I'm all the way down south. Not sure why it wouldn't keep up for you.

i use a "styling cream" made by the crew. it's the middle strength, my hair is very uncooperative, and i live in the humid south and i have no problems with it. i just think it smells like a funeral home, but everyone else says after shave. it was $8 at a beauty supply store.

If murrays doesn't hold it, i don't know what will. I had to stop using murrays because it was TOO thick and had TOO much hold. I use that crew shit from walmart.

Or less than that, if you aren't sweating on a constant basis. Your hair will be much healthier, won't smell, and you won't have overly dry hair all the time. Still use a bit of it myself, though.

I live in Central Arkansas, it was 105 yesterday so as soon as I step outside my head instantly starts sweating. I was my hair something like every third day. I usually throw some pomade in on the first day after washing.

I used to use American Crew pomade with a little bit of Murray's and some fiber paste as a base. Perfect hold until it got hot out.

OP should change the thread title back to pomade so people looking for something to hate stay out? Just a thought.

Also, I'm in the market for something new to hold my hair. Until like a year ago I used to just buzz my head, then I started parting it once I got a real job (read: office, not necessarily real). I've been using Brylcreem since, and it's perfect for the first few hours then it starts to give up.

I want to try that Three Flowers stuff (Fuck Off: you can get it at like any Duane Reade/Pharmacy with a larger selection), but my only question is: is it real sticky? I don't want my hair feeling like a bukake party.

How many times must I tell you mooks? Murrays + La Bella #9.

Layrite is just too expensive to even deal with. You're essentially buying a name, not a product.

On the real though Royal Crown is just straight up grease. You'd be better off lubricating an engine with it.
