The world's greatest greasy hair pomade

200810021828.jpg My dear old friend Dan Kimball (we played in a band together in Colorado and London) has one of the best hairstyles I've had the pleasure to know. Over the years Dan has refined his pompadour to the point that it is now a flawless exemplar of rockabilly style.

When Dan talks about hair grease, you should pay attention. Recently, he stunned the readers of his blog by announcing he'd switched pomades.

After 12 years, I have made the switch from Fiber Grease to LayRite Super Hold. LayRite is "scientifically formulated" and also is "Hy-Sheen."

This is another big change in my life that I am now emotionally processing and getting used to. But I needed to get back to the original Hy-Sheen formula.

My dilemma is that LayRite doesn't come in a 3 oz. canister, so it isn't able to go carry-on in planes. For travel I will still need to use Fiber Grease 3 oz. until LayRIght SuperHold comes in a 3 oz. option.

Me, I don't know pomade from pomegranate juice. But I find it interesting that both brands Dan writes about share the same label colors -- white, black, and yellow. I have made the switch from Fiber Grease to LayRite Super Hold.
