    Okay, I don't know if any of you cool cats sport a pomp at all but, I've been looking for recos for a pomade that holds super well and also has a high shine.

    I'd actually written a song about this decades back "Murray's for Hold, Royal Crown for Shine"
    https://devilsbrewproductions.bandcamp.com/track/murrays-for-hold-royal-crown-for-shine

    The latest I've been using is this-

    ...and the hold factor is good, probably not as good as the OG orange can Murrays, but I was hoping to gain a bit more sheen in the process, and it's not quite to the point I'd like for that, yet.
    For reference, this pic is from this morning, after application:

    I'd appreciate knowledgeable and pertinent suggestions, thanks :cool:

    Butch Wax was the standard in the 50's if you are wanting that look.

    yeah
    I'd considered posting Dapper Dan content in the OP just to get that out of the way

    That looks like something directly out of a mid-1950s bathroom medicine cabinet. Kudos to that company for NAILING the aesthetic.

    I was going to post "there are folks that still do that?" but then I remembered it's big in Japan!

    See the thing is-

    You can put on some orange can Murrays and it'll hold your pomp high through hurricane gale winds. But it lacks some in the shine department

    And the shiny stuff, in my experience, just has no hold to it

    I was a fan of Dax Wave and Groom back in my hair product days. Not quite the sheen of RC but better hold.

    I think DAX simply just didn't change it.
    I believe they've been around a long time

    Medium Shine, excellent hold, you can comb through it and re-style throughout the day...

    There’s another variant of the same brand in a dark blue tin that’s shinier.
