Amazing Strawberry Flavored Slick Tight Pomade : Organic and Useful

Men and even women have been styling their hairs for over a millennia . There are early accounts of people in ancient civilizations like Sumerians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans who used stiffening agents for their hairs.

One of the commonly used items are from bees waxes , bear fats, lards and natural oils.

Etymology  of Pomade

 Pomade comes from the word (/pɒˈmeɪd/; French pommade) is a greasy, waxy, or a water-based substance that is used to style hair.

 Pomade gives the user’s hair a shiny, slick appearance, and does not dry it out. It lasts longer than most hair care products, often requiring multiple washes to completely remove. The original pomade of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries consisted mainly of bear fat , lard, lanolin, beeswax and petroleum jelly have been used extensively in the manufacture of modern pomades.

Company Story

It started on September 2014 as a backyard pomade brewer, after numerous test and failure, the brand formulated the right blend to address the needs of sophisticated users of pomade.

It is legally incorporated in July 2015 in Manila, Philippines. The company set its direction to greater heights. With the leadership of its owner Mr. Froilan B. Llavore.

Slick Tight Pomade

Why use Slick Tight Pomade?

This is not my first time to use some kind of pomade , gel, spray or any waxing agents. It had been a fad before. Unlike hair spray or some hair gel products in the local market Slicktight  pomade does not dry, and can last much longer. Pomade can be used to style hair (including mustaches, side burns, and beards), giving it a darker, slicker, shinier look.

I have tried some commercially available brands with little effect. Sometimes, due to the harsh ingredients used in some pomade products plus dirt which accumulates in the scalp can cause dandruff and irritation.

Unlike some pomade products in the market which contain harmful inorganic chemicals and harm the environment.

Slick Tight Pomade is made from organic beeswax, castor oil, petrolatum and essential oils. Since it is concentrated, then you only need a little amount and it can go along way.  One container can last maximum of 6 months or more.

strawberry cream pomade

What makes this product amazing is that it come in different flavors. Strawberry Cream  and Bubble Gum scents seems to be almost the same. I think i should have tried the Cool Mint one.

When my father saw this product, He thought it was some sort of  strawberry jam … Until i opened the container.

How to Use Slick Tight Pomade

I dabbed a pinch of slick tight pomade into my hands and gently apply them in my hair. I prefer my hair to be damp so to spread the pomade evenly.  The application stayed for more than 6 hours without reapplying new pomade. For hair-styling wax or gels, you need to reapply several times a day . This makes me uncomfortable and uneasy.

Another proven trick is can soften the pomade with the help of a blow-dryer before, more so, if you are using a thick one, which will not spread easily in your palms.

I think this is one of the product to look out for this 2018 and a perfect styling partner in any occasion .

Retail Price: Php 350.00 (60 grams) Also available are: All Skool Cola, Cool Mint, Strawberries and Cream, Vanilla Sandalwood, Sport, and Aqua. This come with FREE shipping.

These are also available in some online store like Shoppe for just Php 270.00

New 5 Peso Coin issued by Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas

Happy New Year to all !

I got a new Php 5.00 commemortive Php 5.00 coin issued by Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas ( BSP) This will make numismatics around the world busy for a while.

This is to commemorate the 154th birthday of Andres Bonifacio and 120th anniversary of his death last November 2017.

The new design  was released by December 2017  under the New Generation Currency (NGC) Coin Series  with the rest of the denominations scheduled for next year.

5 peso commemorative coin

The obverse of the 7.5 gram coin bears the inscription, “Republika ng Pilipinas” and the name and profile of the Father of the Philippine Revolution.  The reverse of the coin features a Philippine plant called  (Strongylodon macrobotrys )commonly known as jade vine, emerald vine or turquoise jade vine with local name “Tayabak” with BSP logo. Aside from its fresh design, the coins boast of “corrosion resistance” abilities and were reportedly enhanced to prevent forgery.

At first glance the coin seems as big as the ordinary Php 1.00 coin and this looks very confusing. This will take a while for the ordinary public can get use to this coin.

It seems that the coins that BSP had been issuing are getting smaller and smaller as time passes by.

But holding the coins, there are some unique design features which a blind person can clearly distinguished.
