So this product is HARD.... I had to use the back of my fingernail to get a scoop but once I get it in the hands and warm it up the application process is a BREEZE! It’s an oil based product without being OVERLY GREASY like the mainstream product (you probably know which one I’m talking about) but this gives a very formal look at the end
Easy Tiger is the best oil based product on the market IMO. Sure, it is tough to get out of the jar. To me the reason is because of the hardness of the wax and lack of oil. The benefit is an oil based pomade that is not too oily, and does not make your hair greasy. Most if not all oil based do not hold enough and are too greasy, which makes the hair look horrible. If you wanted a healthy but natural shine, and a hold that is strong but does not harden, this is the perfect product. What you will end up with is hair that looks like Cary Grant. Not a head ball of grease. Also to mention, I have tried probably all the pomades.
Tried to finally use it today and the pomade was rock hard solid so I didn't bother with it. Seems like I need to use a knife or spoon to dig anything out and even then I don't even know how it's going to be applied to my hair. I don't think the product is suppose to be like this. Hopefully customer service gets back to me on this.
I've been messing with the home-brew pomade scene since 2014. I have tried probably 50+ in that time (I actually keep a list now) While I've tried some OB clays in the last year - which I love - I had never tried an OB Pomade. I'm glad I started with Easy Tiger. It really came down to the fact that I had been messing with SO many extra dry UWB Clays that my naturally dry hair was feeling like a tumble weed. I had tried Shear Revival and Flagship's Belafonte recently and loved it. So trying to re-capture that low to neutral shine pomade feel I went with Easy Tiger. So - how did I like it? Well I would say while it's not my favorite - usually takes a while for me to really like one - it is quite a nice pomade. Shine is definitely there and is on the low side I can say. Later in the day it goes more towards a neutral. Scent is fantastic, as are all the Shear Revival scents - clean, crisp and non-offensive. This pomade does have a bit more weight to it than I typically like (as I keep a pretty loose wavy style) but I really liked the separation and texture it gave my dry and wavy hair. Alot of people think you can only get texture with clay or matte products. This is totally not true, especially for those of us with dry hair. Alot of times the dry matte products will do the opposite. For me, I find a nice balanced clay or pomade (OB or UWB) works the best to give me hold and texture I like. Easy Tiger is in my normal rotation now. It's a rotation of like 10 products, but it's there and I have to say well done Shear Revival team!
Good pomade, but my gripe is with QA issues and lack of responsiveness from SR. The batch I received was hard as candle wax. I have to use a knife to cut through the solid wax and break down the clumps to be able to use it. It is not at all scoopable. Sent an inquiry but never heard back, but they still asked that I submit a review, so I can only give it 3 stars at most at this point.
