1 review for Grim Grease – Medium Hold Water Based Pomade

    My hair profile:
    I’ve medium thick, wavy hair. I wear a side part with a contour. At the moment, I’m using a brush with wild boar hair, a Denman brush plus a wide tooth comb (detangler). During styling, I use brushes most. Also a tangle teezer. Wanna know more of the tangle teezer: https://piw74.com/2016/07/16/combs-brushes-afro-picks-an-inventory/

    Fresh cologne scent. Scent is accessible: fresh, clean, not overbearing, a safe choice to try out the pomade. I just noticed a few subtle breezes throughout the day. Do not like very lingering aromas, so this is approved. Like the smell.

    Application process – result:
    The cologne scent batch comes in a light blueish color. Hair won’t turn blue, no worries. The pomade’s top layer is soft and comes out without issues. Breakdown: some resistance, got a creamy, not tacky substance without wax beads. After a few rubs I put it into my hair and that went easy: no tugging at all. Dispersing evenly was no problem either. Blueish strays in the hair that vanished right away. After a few scoops I began to feel a good grip, not a real tugging one when combing the hair back. I scooped 3 1/2 scoops (normal size). Parting my hair: easy. It laid down my sides immediately. My cowlicks are the hassle part of the process but they listened after using my boar brush a few times. Hair tended to wave a bit in the front. Strays: no. I obtained an alright hair height and an okay hair shape. After initial styling: no real changes as sagging or strays popping out. Styling with Grim grease wb was an easy, smooth job. I restyled the front after an hour and the waviness decreased. Hair got a much slicker and neater look and a more solid shape.

    This pomade provided me a few notches above neutral shine on day one. On the second day I had some more shine. Sheen did not dull.

    Hold – endurance:
    Labeled to be a medium-heavy. That’s what I experienced also, yes. I wish it were a bit stronger. The heavy hold is an option I consider to try. Hair kept its overall shape alright: experienced some sagging, some flyaways at the end of my day. Didn’t need to recomb the hair, just a few touch ups with my fingers on my front mostly. My waves didn’t worsen. Cowlicks, sides: intact, no splits. Has more of a medium weight feel in my hair providing not that much volume. Provides a good control. In terms of endurance, this pomade does an alright job. In what circumstances did I test it? It was a sunny day with temperatures around 70 and a bit of sweating. Had a good walk and a little bicycle trip. Hair staid soft, not that greasy or sticky when I touched it.

    As mentioned, after the hair settled, I got much better results with it: more straightened waves, slicker look. Experienced the same thing the next day. Restyling wasn’t really necessary, just a few touch ups here and there. Restyling process tried out: no tug, hair kept its good hold.

    Build up:
    Clean and waxy. Doesn’t improve the hold and endurance that much but as mentioned hold and endurance are good. Rinsed without shampoo and hair was very waxy and difficult to style: lots of tug. Recommendable to use a hair tonic to soften the build up.

    Washing out:
    Around 2 washes depending on your hair type. Hair feels soft after the rinse.

    Hair, scalp issues:

    Similar pomade:
    Flagship, Black ship (heavy hold). Grim grease medium has a bit less hold (medium-heavy).
