Bed Head Power Play Firm Finish Gel
Oh how I long for hair!! A good old pair of clippers is all I use. I've had an ongoing balding problem for a number of years now and it doesn't seem to be getting any better!

Luckily men's hair products have come a long way in the last 30 years. I had a friend growing up that used to put lard and vaseline in his hair. It was really nasty.

Sumotech by Bumble and Bumble
So i am looking for a high shine, high hold product with absolutely no stickyness. Am i asking for too much?
Crew Fiber gives me best result without being sticky
I use Nivea Creme Gel I get from Europe and L'Oreal Homme Professionel Matt. Does the job for me.
I'm growing my hair after having had it short for many years (being pressured into it by the gf lol). So far I'm using Palmer's. I can kinda smell it though, and whilst not necessarily a bad smell, it's perhaps not ideal. It was more of a random purchase in a shop nearby.
i have been using vavoom smoothing gel and vavoom hold my body gel for the past approx 16 years

used to be called matrix i think
14 sprays of DRAKKAR NOIR should do it
I've been on the search for the best water based pomade..... but I think that I actually prefer the old petroleum based/wax based pomades. Dax Wave & Groom is probably the best performing product for me..... but it DOES NOT wash out. You have to get used to it being in there..... unless you do the whole vegetable oil wash or apple cider rinse thing. Schmiere Rumble 59 Hard Pomade is another great one.... and it washes out a little better.... but costs three times as much as Dax W&G.
Even when I use these heavy pomades, I usually add a little bit of a water based product in as well to give my hair a little more flexibility. They make it easier to run a comb through.... and make my hair lay down a little better. I have thick, fine hair that stands up on it's own..... so I need no lift. I'm a side part combover/slick back/business pomp style.... so I don't like the messy sticking up look.

Redken "20" Rough Clay
I prefer all Redken products especially the Rewind 06. Extremely fine styling product but it needs a little bit more work as it is not wax. It is very flexible and if you want something like Jay Gatsby from the Great Gatsby, this is the one. Best w a hairdryer
Palmers Olive Oil hair oil. Just to keep it moisturized.
TGI Bed Head Wax and Malin+Goetz Pomade
TIGI Bead Head's Matte Separation Wax
For me, it's Bumble & Bumble Sumotech. I have shorter hair, and this stuff is perfect in that it's not waxy, stays matte, and controls well.
This is going to sound strange to a lot of people but l use body lotion in my hair, and it works wonders. I have thick straight hair that I slick back. It hold my hair perfectly and its not sticky or heavy like gels. I use the lubrederm lotion they have at Costco. I have been using this for years now and I am so happy with it.
I use Kiehl's Silk Groom Serum. It's good stuff.
JONATHAN Shaping Cream Gel
SEBASTIAN PROFESSIONAL Craft Clay
Finding it harder to come by, so bought the last 4 in stock when I found some last year. Dont use much so just cracked open the second.
I use Hanz de Fuko Quicksand and Spongewax. I usually mix the two together. On days when I'm not using that combination its usually Hanz de Fuko Claymation.

Well I got my hands on a tub of L'oreal Homme matte Clay (strength 5)...surprisingly this is quite good. Needs only a little (it's a thick sticky gum like paste rubbing a finger in top of it warms it up and makes it easier to remove some).
Best thing is no sticky feeling hair...after a short while this simply vanishes, touch the hair and it feels soft and natural nothing like other gels which makes the hair feels like it has been dipped in liquid cement...and washes off nicely without shampoo and fuss.
Imperial water based pomade for me. Helps with the Don Draper look.

I don't have any hair on my head.
I do however sport the most fabulous hirsute appendage of the upper lip with magnificent graspable extremities usually styled into a classic "English".
I use Firehouse Wacky Tacky Moustache Wax.
Woody's Pomade, great hold and adds texture without being crunchy.
So I'm new to this site but I'm involved in a Pomade group on Facebook called everything pomade. In any case there are tons of great brews made by people on there that blow the salon products and Murrays out of the water. Some brands I'd recomend are O'douds, Pomps Not Dead, Shear Revival, Flagship Pomade and The Daimon Barber. Most cost 15 bucks and can be found on hedgelion.com and many are made of all natural ingredients as well as vegan if that's something you're looking for. O'Douds, Flagship, and Shear Revival all make unorthodox water based pomaded which offer the good parts of traditional pomade but wash out easily and aren't greasy.
Sorry for rambling but pomade collecting is one of hobbies as well as pairing pomades and fragrance.
shaved head now, but will try some of the suggestions, when it grows back
I have really thick and unruly hair and I'm sporting a clean slick back look without being too greasy. The only thing that holds my hair in place is heavy hold pomade. The best product so far for me proved to be Schmiere hard. It's a product produced in Germany. Murrays superior works fine too.http://www.sivletto.com/en/artiklar/...made-hart.html
