Gotta drop a quick note on my gold standard pomade that I have discovered in the last 4-5 months of trying dozens and dozens of pomades — Teddy Boy Original by Anchors Aweigh.

This stuff has the texture and feel of a thick lotion, a bay rum and peppermint scent that is just simply awesome ( I wish they made an Aftershave with this scent!), and it is so workable and has such great hold that lasts me all day. Rain or shine, hot or cold - this stuff just does it’s job! It’sbeasy to comb through and even easier to use. It’s not heavy, doesn’t clump and is easy to re-style throughout the day. It’s got a medium shine and medium to heavy hold but does not flake, does not feel stiff or form a “shell” on your hair and even re-styles easily the next day without washing.

It washes out easily, as it is water based, but it also seems to have made my hair healthier over the past several months.

It’s great stuff, give it a shot if you are looking for a great, everyday pomade that flat out gets the job done!

I've used the matte from Anchors, never the original.  

Grew tired of the cherry smell of the matte, but the performance is most definitely on point.

The scent of the original is just right and never cloying or bothersome at all.

Just ordered the smaller size.  My current favorite is Layrite original, but I feel like it could definitely be better as it does get stiff.  I look forward to seeing if this can give me the hold I need and the management I want.

I have used and re-ordered Teddy Boy Original, this is the best water based pomade I have tried.  It's hold is on the light side, but keeps my hair in place all day. I also ordered Strong Hold from the same manufacturer to see if that performs better for when my hair is a bit longer.  The only thing I'm not a big fan of on TB is the minty scent.

This is a good product. I am 100% in agreement with all of the points Boonie21 made in his original post.
