Originating from New York City, Blind Barber currently has multiple barber outlets across the United States. They have been around for about 8 years, and has recently evolved into a unique men’s cave barbershop. Imagine being served cocktails and grilled cheese sandwiches while enjoying a relaxing haircut and shaving services, what more can a man ask for?
They’ve also made good use of their barbering experience by developing a range of in-house grooming products for men. Their products ranges from hair care to skincare and shaving products. In this review, we will be focusing on the well-known Blind Barber 90 Proof Pomade.
Water Based Pomade
Packaged in a well-designed dark brown jar with matte black cover. It weighs 75ml, which is flight-friendly and suitable to be placed in carry-on luggages.
Clean and Masculine. Has a Tonka Bean (Vanilla-Like) Scent.
Texture & Application
It has a creamy texture, unlike standard pomades, which makes it easy to scoop out from the jar. The texture reminds me of the Red House Private Reserve Firm Pomade as both were quite similar.
Also, despite it being cream-like, it doesn’t clump up your hair when applied. In fact, it gives a natural feel and can be easily restyled with water. For a dry look, apply on dry hair. Restyling is simple -- just wet your fingers for easy restyling.
Because it is a light product and contains hops (antiseptic that prevents dandruff), it is suitable for sensitive or dandruff-prone scalps as well.
