Get Some Hair Action With Axe Shine Pomade

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Good Product, Works Well, Priced Well, Easy to Find

Cons:May Not Be Authentic Enough For Some Consumers

The Bottom Line: I high recommend AXE Smooth and Sophisticated - Shine Pomade because it is an excellent product for the price and is readily available.


The "greaser" look is an iconic look. The leather jacket, white t shirt, cuffed jeans, hot rod or motorcycle, and a bad attitude. What's missing? A rockabilly hairstyle such as the pompadour, the duck tail, or simple long hair slicked back in a part. What do these hairstyles have in common? Pomade, which is a somewhat retro hair product, popular in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s among men, used to achieve the "slicked" look.

AXE has brought back many different looks with its new line of hair products. The new "hair action" line has introduced a new standard of pastes, waxes, gels, and pomades to the hair product market, and with a name as popular as AXE, these products have done very well. The particular product that we are dealing with today is AXE Smooth and Sophisticated - Shine Pomade. A very similar product in AXE's line of hair products is AXE Clean Cut - Pomade, which is essentially the same product, but lacks the shined, polished look that you get from the Shine Pomade. If you are looking for the hold and the versatility of pomade without the greasy look, then AXE Clean Cut might be the better product for you. If you are looking for the all around pomade look, then AXE Smooth and Sophisticated is definitely something you should consider purchasing. 

AXE S&S Shine Pomade is widely available in comparison to other pomades on the market. Murray's, which is one of the most famous traditional pomades, is very hard to find in some areas. Tres Flores, a popular pomade among Hispanics, is often only found in the "ethnic hair" section of stores. People who search for these products often end up buying them on the internet. Now, you can purchase pomade anywhere. Literally, anywhere that sells AXE deodorant should carry their hair products. The product is also priced well, usually for around $6. This is much cheaper than many pomades, though some are sold for as cheap as $3.

So you have a product that is very common compared to its competition, and it's priced competitively as well. But can the quality of the product compete? Yes it can. This is a very good product, and I am 100% satisfied with the results that gives. The shine look lasts all day, it holds your hair and allows you to comb it up into a pompador or something similar, it prevents any sort of frizz, and it doesn't add volume or change the way your hair feels. 

If you have considered buying a more expensive, less common pomade to get an authentic rockabilly hairstyle, then don't bother. AXE S&S is the perfect product for you. If you look in your mirror in the morning after a shower, and you like the way your hair looks when it's wet and wish that it could look like that all day while not feeling any different than it does otherwise, then this is a product for you as well. I can't tell you how many times I've brushed my hair when I've gotten out of the shower and liked the way it looks when it's wet, but looked at it again around noon and thought that it looked awful with the large amount frizz and cowlicks created by the wind, humidity, or me being active. AXE S&S holds your hair and keeps it looking perfect and fresh all day, like you just brushed it that morning.

AXE S&S is a common, cheap, good quality product that competes well and delivers on the results. If you're looking for a good pomade to dress your hair with, then look no further than this. It's truly a good product. The only thing I could see people having a problem with is the packaging and appearance of the product itself. It's in a very cookie-cutter package that lacks the retro look of other pomade packaging. The actual pomade is blue, which is very unauthentic. If you're a purist that has been using pomade products for years, then AXE S&S may not leave a good first impression. However, if you're just looking for a good product that will deliver the look and the quality for the price, then this is definitely something that I recommend trying. I highly recommend AXE Smooth and Sophisticated - Shine Pomade.
