When I was in high school, I worked at plant shop. People used to come in and ask me, I need a shrub that is hardy, flowers all summer, the deer don't eat, can be in the shade half of the day, and is drought resistant. I would tell tell them: A fake shrub.

I am lead to believe this same principle may apply to you and your hair.

I'm not versed in such products personally, maybe somebody else will chime in.

I'd go with a heavy pomade. Oil-based pomades don't harden up - which is good because you still won't get out of recombing your hair after removing your helmet. There's no product that can just ignore the pressure a good helmet puts on your hair. The key is to chose a product that easily lets you recomb your hair and to have that comb in your pocket whenever you feel you'll need it.
I'd suggest the Uppercut Deluxe Monster Hold. The hold is very good and it's not very greasy. My second suggestion would be Dax Wave & Groom. It's cheap, holds like hell, but is also greasier than the Uppercut Deluxe.
Water-based pomades will wash out easier, but they'll also harden up and make recombing your hair more difficult.

The key to finding a good product is trying them on your hair, after doing your "thing" (washing, blowdrying etc). Reviews can be a good guideline, but will never get you out of experiencing the stuff stuff does to your hair yourself.

@patrickBOOTH do you use any conditioner? And which Dr Bonners do you use? Sorry if this question was asked before.

I have pretty thick hair and have been shampooing with some regular stuff they sell at most stores. When I shampoo my hair always ends up being extremely frizzy and poofy. I use B&B Sumotech and it gives me a hold with a little bit of sheen, but I usually put my hands through my hair an hour or so after I apply it so it looks more natural. I have a habit of shampooing everyday because I feel like the product is still in my hair even after I shampoo.

That's a light hold, but let us know how it turned out. Maybe you'll like it anyways.
And please, punctuation saves lifes. Use it.

Sorry lol. Can u buy those products at stores?
post #1151 of 1153
There's a ton of websites around that sell a vast range of pomades, often already sorted by how strong the hold is. I don't want to advertise any sites I haven't dealt with my own, so just go around and google it. If you need any advice, research some blogs (there's a bunch of them out there) and youtube channels, all devoted to grease. You'll find your fit with a bit of trying around.

First of all use the Shikakae soaps (in a pump container) they are a bit more moisturizing. Also, don't bother using them if you're not going to use the Bronners rinse, or lemon juice rinse, or vinegar rinse. Castile soaps have a high pH and cause your hair's cuticle to open up causing all of that frizz. In order to tame it you need something acidic to close the cuticle again and smooth it out.
