I signed up here a long time ago, but just activated my account today. Oh well.

Layrite has a stronger hold than Grant's. Grant's is comparable, as it is a gel pomade that is water soluble. But, Donnie Hawley just got it down with Layrite. The only thing it's missing is some sheen. But if you like your hair to look matte, then it's all good. If your hair is wavy, Grant's won't straighten it out like Layrite will.

I am actually using something called night.rider by kevin murphy which I rather enjoy. Not a pomade, but incredible hold and does the slicked-back well without excessive shine. Smells quite delectable, too, according to some of my women friends.
Cool Grease is cool (no pun,) but it is very expensive. When you get the little tub, and I mean little, it'll seem like you'll go through it within days. Layrite is a better buy, as it is 7oz for about $18, whereas Cool Grease will run you up to $35 for a small 3oz tub. They make a 7oz tub, and you'll be lucky to find it for a relatively decent price. And buy correctly, I bought the medium hold (orange/redish container,) and it doesn't hold my hair for the life of me. In short, for those wanting water soluble gel pomades, stick to either Grant's, Layrite, or another brand Suavacito. I have no personal experience with them, but I plan on ordering some within the next couple of weeks. Dax Super-Neat is also water soluble, and is choice if you're looking for a slick wet look, rather than a matte look that the other pomades will give you. Plus, it smells good.
