Looking for a Good Men's Hair dressing

I'm wondering if any of you men can recommend a good hair dressing. I've always had a good head of hair, and even now, at 78 yrs old, I still have pretty good hair, although I'm noticing some slight hair loss lately. Right now, I have a tube of Brylcreem, which I've used 'till now, but it just has a greasy feel to it and I don't think it holds that well. I remember using Brylcreem in the past and it was somewhat more satisfactory then (I was a lot younger, and perhaps had thicker hair).

So, if you have good hair now, can you give me a suggestion as to what you've found works best for you? Thanks. Mr. Ed

Can you just use less of it? Change your hair style so you don’t need any? BTW I wish I needed to post something like this. ;-)

Get a haircut.


I didn't know Brylcreem was still around.

I prefer mousse. No greasy feel at all but still holds decent. I used to use it everyday pre-pandemic when I worked in the office, wore a tie, etc. Things are more relaxed now as far as dress, but I still use it every once in a while when I want to look extra sharp.

My personal preference: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Suave-Ext...-9-oz/10293568 That is level 7. They sell various levels of hold, though, to match your preference.

My solution has been a 2 or 3 cut with a Wahl Clipper set.

And I only forgot to put the guide on once.

Yeah, I guess being bald has its benefits (especially here in the TX panhandle, where it can get quite windy). I used plain water today after shampooing out any Brylcreem remnants. My hair stayed in place pretty well, but I'll be concerned about those windy days.

I remember the Brylcreem commercial from many years ago:

"Brylcreem, a little dab will do ya, Brylcreem, you'll look so debonair, Brylcreem, the gals will all pursue ya, they love to get their fingers in your hair." I think that was false advertising; I didn't have any gals pursuing me!*

I'll look into that, Beerdude. Thanks. I practically live at Walmart!

Looks like we're from the same era. If Vitalis won't do it try "Wildroot Cream Oil, Charlie" Yup, those were the days. If we couldn't look like Elvis we could try "Kookie, Kookie lend me your comb" and of course there was always the "Fonze".
Days are a bit different now even though I still have most of my hair but have reduced down to shampoo and a couple dabs of cream rinse and give it a brushing. The only one I have to impress these days is my DW of 54+ years. She thinks I'm pretty and that's all that matters.
Guess I'll lather up with some "Burma Shave" and get out the Gillette so I can "look sharp and feel sharp too". Later Daddy-O-

I've gone to Rotella T6. It's synthetic and doesn't have that oily feel. Sorry, couldn't resist it. The #2-4 clipper guards work for me.
