Sid Sottung Tests Captain Fawcett's Patent Pomades
What’s the expert verdict?
Due to phenomenal popular demand, Captain Fawcett is augmenting his award-winning hair styling essentials with a brand new line of Patent Pomades. And there is no-one more qualified to talk you through the new hair styling range than the remarkable Sid Sottung.
Firstly, the packaging is bloody brilliant. The container is easy to grip so they’re incredibly barber friendly to use. It’s also very large so you really get your money’s worth. Fantastic for both barbers and for clients to style their hair at home.
This is absolutely brilliant for a loose hold with extreme shine. It’s so shiny it’s ridiculous! It’s like something from a classic vintage poster. Perfect if you really want that old school glamorous look but with movement to the hair. It's great to add shine to curly and African Caribbean hair. It’s not for a very stiff look but you can blend the Classic Pomade to another product for added shine. It’s water soluble so very easy to wash out in the shower. I highly recommend the Captain Fawcett Shampoo to go with it because the PH balance is just exactly correct for thoroughly cleansing the hair.
And I also highly recommend it for Pin Up Girls to smooth out their tresses for a flawless Hollywood shine. Honestly, I can’t believe how shiny it is! This is my desert island Pomade for sure.
OK, Clay v Putty. These are both really amazing Pomades. This Clay is great. It’s very pliable, easy to use and lighter than the Putty with a weightless finish. Great for a swept back look without heavy hold. Since it’s a raw earth clay ingredient it has a strong matt effect, very good for adding density to fine or thinning hair or to hair that’s a naturally little greasier because the clay absorbs the excess sebum and natural hair oils. It’s water soluble so easy to wash out. I recommend applying Captain Fawcett Shampoo to dry hair, massage it in, and then add the water to rinse all the product out properly.
So if you want a stronger hold go with the Putty. It’s really good if you want a textured, messy, spiky, very lived-in, sexy Rock and Roll look. It’s ideal for shorter to medium length hair when you want a lot more hold and staying power. It’s very easy to use. I’d recommend applying it to dry hair to finish off your hair cut or style. And it’s simple to show a client how to use it themselves at home.
