Hello my friends, how you guys been doing? Pomping that curly hair? Slicking back those curls? Hair looking good? AAALLLRIGHTY THEN!
This time I will review one of the up and coming waterbased pomades, I found about them when one of my blog readers, Jonathan Garcia, commented on one of my posts and asked if I knew about or have heard about Bonafide Pomade, and I searched it and I found about it, and then they started talking about it on the Addicted to Pomade group on Facebook, ,and this review was LONG overdue, shit a lot of pomade reviews have been long overdue, but man when I want to post one I’m busy and when I have a chance to post one I’m too lazy or I forget. But now I have a chance to post one, and I shall post one. But posting isn’t a quick thing, you gotta take a pic of the the tin/can/jar/etc. then of the inside, the scoop out so you guys can see what it looks like scooped out, then you gotta do your hair, then you take pictures of that masterpiece you have created with a brush and a comb, then you gotta come up with quirky pomade related puns to make your audince chuckle, smile or in rare cases, make them “LOL”.
Anyway, enough blabbin’, on to the review!
The container is really nice, very different, very unique, I love the design. It has its name in big bold letter, with two crossed switchblade combs on top, I have one of those, I rarely use it though, the bristles are too small, what if I’m combing mythe curly thick hair, and it breaks, then I would be sad..
The color of the container is an amber with the red and yellow logos…
When you open it…ermahgerd, it smells like heaven, like literally die and go to heaven, I imagine it would smell exactly like this pomade. Clean, fresh, sexy scent, I want a fucking shampoo, conditioner AND bodywash that smells like this. The color of this pomade seems to be an amber/brown color…
Until, you scoop it out, then it turns yellow? (What sorcery is this?) It turns out the container is actually see through, and the tin is what actually makes the pomade so dark, but in reality, its a clear yellow color. Now I love this pomade, I have curly thick hair, and when you scoop this stuff out, you would think it will have weak hold right? WRONG!
Dat hold! This pomade has some hold! It doesn’t have the hold of Acme Axl Grease, Cock Grease, or Murray’s Edgewax, i but it has pretty damn decent hold for a weak feeling waterbased, but it surprises you. It spreads in your hair really light, like a light grease, but POW!, it has awesome hold, or like it says on the logo, Superior Hold. Now this stuff has the shine like a grease too! Well it shines like this for at least 4 to 5 hours then it hardens, but not like gel, its pretty recombable for a waterbased. I know my hair looks straight, but trust me I have curly hair, it used to be pube curly, and really course, just unbearable, but lemme tell you guys something.. contitioner, a brush, and a tight beanie are your best friends, trust me.
A funny story though when I ordered the Bonafide Pomade though, true story, I ordered it on Black Friday, and it was taking a while to get here and when I checked the tracking number, it said undeliverable as addressed, well ain’t that about a bitch? So I contacted Luis and told him what had happened, and he said no worries! He said he’d send me another one,with STICKERS! 😀 So a BIG thanks to Luis and the guys at Bonafide Pomade, for the extra stickers and for having such an amazing product. The best though, I could buy it locally now, they sell it at Theatomicboutique.com which is 15 min from my house!
So I give this pomade a 10 out of 10, its awesome!
Til next time
