Metro Man & Metro Home

George Clooney as Ulysses Everett McGill in the movie, “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” was very particular about his hair pomade. “I like the smell of my hair treatment; the pleasing odor is half the point,” he said. While that line was delivered and received with great humor, I now understand this character’s intent. Not all pomades are equal, so I was fortunate to come across the John Masters Organics line of hair care products.

This pomade is all-natural, organic and restores moisture to the hair with nourishing and hydrating properties. It works exceptionally well in providing control and a brilliant shine; it also can help damaged or dry hair. What I found most amazing about this pomade is although it contains several oils including olive oil, wheat germ and massoia oil (extracted from tree bark), it did not leave my hair feeling greasy. I was able to create a style as sleek as the leading males in “Mad Men” when applied wet, or it can be used on dry hair to add shine to a more relaxed or cool tousled look.

Every guy wants to look good but many of us are reluctant to buy grooming products primarily due to confusion; we get intimidated by all the gels, creams, and sprays on the market and let’s be honest, some hair products either make us smell like a fruit salad or a flower shop. We just want something easy, clean, effective and masculine. This pomade does the job and its scent is light, herbal and aromatic — not flowery. The fact that it’s organic and made in the U.S.A. makes it even more worthy. I recommend this as a Father’s Day gift idea.

Ulysses Everett McGill boasted about Dapper Dan Pomade in the movie. Too bad he didn’t hear about this pomade by John Masters Organics. It takes hair care products to a new level.
