Hey, I am new here!
I read the guy above me's post, and had to comment.
I feel sorry for ya man, I am a greaser so i have a nice dose of this stuff in my hair, every day.
Here are a few SERIOUS tips.
What ever you do, do NOT sleep with a nice dosing of this stuff in your hair, it will cause breakage and weak hair over time, and do not "NOT" rinse your hair out, seriously, make sure it is WELL rinsed before sleeping or going on a 5 day romp with it in your hair. I am used to this stuff so its not too much work for me at night(I know what i am doing)
So, why should you not leave this in your hair? well.
It can fall out, and it may or may not grow back in.
How? the oil(or even the "Wax") can go into the pores in your scalp and then, your hair can not breathe. pretty cool huh?
May i suggest for you guys, dax instead. I use dax also, and it is a bit softer(albeit the same stuff) as murrays, you can put it into your hair easier, and it comes out SLIGHTLY easier than murrays also. But the hold is the same.
Make sure you use a good clarifying shampoo(ding ding ding!!!!) to get this stuff out of your hair, 4 washes should do. Dish soap should be used only in a pinch, and if you use dish soap, 4-5 rinses should get it out, and make sure you put in some LEAVE IN CONDITIONER(or just normal conditioner) so your hair gets the damage from the shampoo or soap fixed.
Or, for around the same price, you can use "sportin' waves" It makes your hair a bit more shinier(depending on hair length) and it washes out WAY easier than murrays(warm water rinse will do the job), But unless you have a pompadour like me, you more than likely won't get a firm hold like murrays(you still get a above average hold though) but you will have the "slightly greasy head" look after...say...2 days, as opposed to risking having your hair fall out in 5 days.(remember, rinsing out sporting waves wont take ALL of it out, but ONE shampoo will..normal, no clarifying shampoo that is)
Now, for the trick of getting it out. Here is the fun part!
There is many ways, blow dryer, or straight clarifying shampoo. I suggest both.
Blow dryer heats the product on your hair, making it melt. So now tat you have the blow drying heating your locks(mae sure you do this quick as to not damage your hair with too much heat) add the clarifying shampoo, or soap of choice(grease fighters are better) while blowing your hair with the dryer air(I rhymed) and rub it in, and then quickly hop in the shower(steam will keep your hair nicely warm) let the shampoo sit in your hair for a good 3 mins, then rinse out in warm(or hot, depending on shower preference) water.
Ya learn something new every day right?
Plus guys, if you have long hair, stay away from the murrays. Women+men+long hair on said men+murrays= ew.
If you wanna tame medium and short hair, murrays IMO beats those 16$ crap products every day, crew, redken etc etc.
Crew tries to tie its self to "sophisticated" men of the 40's-60's, but sophisticated men used brylcreem and murrays.the wearers of those are simply known in todays terms as "greasers".
Hope I helped you guys out. :)
just HAD to chime in. Im out!
