Uppercut Deluxe Pomade

Overall Score

4.5

 

I'm not going to lie, at first I hated this product. I didn't like the smell, I disliked the texture, and the color was a little weird for me. But, with time I learned to love this stuff and all that I hated, subsided.

Smell

The scent reminds me of rum without the kick from the alcohol. It's a really dull scent but with lots of sugar. The smell was a little overwhelming at first, but within 30 minutes of daily activities it had completely gone away(which is a plus). It's one of those scents you enjoying smelling the more you inhale it. Overall, after 30 minutes, I could smell my cologne and not my hair. So I give it a thumbs up.

Texture

Thankfully it's a water-soluble pomade. Meaning, it loosens with water, or completely comes off. The texture of this product is sticky but maneuverable(while it's fresh). That doesn't mean it's tough to apply. It's actually fairly easy for being as strong as it is. Just keep in mind when you're applying this stuff, make sure to do it while your hair is dry. If not, there won't be much of a hold. Which would defeat the purpose of using this stuff.

Another thing to keep in mind, is time. It's a POMADE! You're on a time limit. Don't let it sit in your hair for 10 minutes while you decide what kind of style you want to achieve. It'll harden after a ton of strokes with a comb. Also, excessive strokes might leave some residue as well. 

BUT!

The beauty of this stuff is that it's a POMADE. Splash a tiny bit of water to loosen the product and restyle. It really is that simple.

Who's it For

This product is intended for a gentleman's haircut. So if you're looking for a clean part on the side of you head, this is it! This will transform bed head to classy gentleman.

I recommend this product to be used for special events such as weddings, night out with friends, dinner, date, job interview, etc. You know? The important shit. Big day kind of things...

OR

If you're style involves looking like a badass motherfucker with a proper hairstyle. I say pick it up.

You won't regret it.

The Reason

The reason why I knocked off half a star, was because the fact that I needed to gunk up my "cowlick" in order to lay it flat. If I didn't, I'd be walking around like Alfalfa did in the "Little Rascals."

So if you have a terrible cowlick like mine, you might have to add a bit more in order to get it the way you want it. But if you don't and got blessed with tamable hair, I think you should be good.

LUCKY ASS!
