I was just wondering what others use to tame their hair.  I use either the Pinaud Eau de Quinine or Eau de Portugal Hair Tonic or the Pashana Hair Lotion with about 3-4 drops of Glycerin and 2-3 drops of Vitamin-E oil. The oil helps keep the hair in place and the glycerin gives a little shine.  The Groom & Clean is a gel and the Tabac is a cream.  Just the smallest amount will work the same way as the tonics and lotion.  I like this way of controlling my hair because it doesn't make my hair stiff like gel.  If it's windy out, as soon as I step out of the wind, a quick combing will put my hair right back in place.  Which I use depends on its scent and which cologne I am using to finish up my shave.  

So, what do some of you use on your hair? Smile

I was given something called, 'Tigi'. Bed head-a hair stick for cool people.

That is what the package says.

But I would like to try something else. Your 'Groom & Clean' there looks good.

I decided about a year ago to keep my hair pretty short, but I still use a dab of American Crew gel or Pomade, very small amount.

My wife likes my hair a bit longer but I like it short. When I was still racing bikes, the rule was short during the season [#2] and I would grow it out over the off season. Now I keep it #3 on the sides and finger length on top [about a #5].

Have been using this for some time but the other thread has me curious about alternatives.

I've been using this combo for a while, pretty happy with the results.

It looks like what we use runs from the old standbys to the more modern.

About two haircuts ago, out of the blue, my barber put on some sort of pomade on my hair and it was awful. It made my hair feel a bit stiff and sticky. I asked her to never use that on me again. Unfortunately, I didn't ask what the product was. This makes me leery about trying pomades or pastes.

Reuzel recently released two hair tonics. I have them both and love them.

Although a bit expensive at $17. The blue is super lightweight and after it dries you can't really feel any product in your hair. The Grooming Tonic has a little more hold, and works great if you use a blowdryer or apply it to already dry hair. Applying it to wet/damp hair has a more firm hold I've noticed.

I have also used Jeris with and without oil. The oil is just a tad too oily for me but the hold is perfect for my hair.

Before I got into this whole wetshaving thing I used to just buzz my whole head with a #2 and call it good. I wore a hat most of the time anyway. But alas, the step up in shaving somehow stepped up the whole grooming game and I started getting proper haircuts. That then prompted me to look into hair stuff as well. I started with Brylcreem and Groom N' Clean, etc. but my hair is wavy/curly so I needed something with a bit more hold. Pomades were the answer because who wants to use gel right? What is it, 1987? Lol. I tried some of the cheap oil based ones (Murray's) and couldn't deal with the greasiness/build-up and unwashability. So anyway, now I use water based pomade exclusively. I've tries a number of brands and I'm still looking for the right one.

I like the Pinaud or the Pashana eau de Portugal as a daily tonic with the Pinaud Eau de Quinine, Jeris Osage Rub or Pashana Bay rum tonic if I'm up for something different and there won't be fragrance conflicts.  I tried the Pashana Brilliantine a while back and it about triggered my gag reflex.  Its what IMO, cologne for a corpse almost certainly smells like....or is it cologne from a corpse? Confused

Cologne on a corpse maybe? Wasn't that what someone described XPEC as smelling like?
