I'm a barber and I also slick my hair back. While I do love Murrays for the price, its near impossible to wash out and off your hands.
People Suggesting royal crown should know in warm weather its useless. It falls down and is slimey. Its literally vasoline and olive oil. I use a tiny bit over my products to add shine.
These are the 2 i reccommend highly.. for a pomade, cock grease (silly i know. Rooster pun) is fantastic and has multiole hold levelshttp://cockgrease.com/shop/
And for a water based, light, pomade i LOVE Layrite (its pricey as fuck but its awesome)http://www.hawleywoods.com/
I always have both plus royal crown for days i want shine.
