I used to use this pomade a few years ago. Smelt great and had a tough hold. I haven't used them in the past couple of years and thought I'd try them out again. I don't know what happened. They must have changed their formula or something because I fail to see the difference between this and the garbage hair gel I used to get back at Wal-Mart when I was 12. Does not feel great in the hands, doesn't mix well, takes a long time to settle into your hair, makes dry hair feel and act wet again, has no tough hold, and does not smell great at all.
