Not worth the cost
on 16 April 2016
I'm pretty disappointed with this product. I've given it two stars, rather than just one, because it washes out easily, which is why I bought it in the first place. I had been using Black & White pomade, which was almost impossible to wash out, so I was going to bed each night with a greasy head. Uppercut washes out completely, which is good, but in other aspects it falls short of my expectations.
Firstly, it is not nearly heavy enough. I have naturally puffy hair and this stuff simply can't control it the way Black & White could.
Secondly, I'm not a fan of the smell; it's a kind of cornstarchy smell that I wouldn't really describe as sexy. When I catch a whiff of myself, I don't think: "Yeah, the ladies are gonna love me."
Thirdly, I don't like the way it dries, making my hair crusty. With Black & White my hair stayed pliable throughout the day and I could easily recomb it after cycling to work or stepping in from a blustery day. With Uppercut I need to wet my hair and add more product.
Add all this to the fact that Uppercut costs three times as much as Black & White and I feel pretty stupid for having bought it.
