When the lovely Miss Amy and Miss Joanna gave me the brand new Dollop pomade I was skeptical. After all, I am a Dapper Dan man and have been for years. But, friends, I can tell you I have changed my tune.
Dollop’s pomade is, like any pomade, greasy to the touch and is perfect for creating those beautiful Donald Draper hairstyles that all the ladies like these days.
What sets Dollop apart is the wonderful smell. Dollop’s spicy ginger fragrance is incredibly nice and is a nice change from the usual chemically smells of other men’s hair products. And best of all it’s all natural ingredients.
The texture of Dollop pomade may put some guys (and girls) off. It is a greasy oily and can give your hair a dirty feel. But don’t worry, it softens during the day and feels like “normal” after an hour or two.
Also the clever both-ways-up Dollop logo means I always know what I’m reaching for (no matter my state in the morning).
(And as a person with long hair who usually doesn’t do very much to it, I think a tiny little bit of Dollop rubbed through makes a really nice light setting product, but Hadyn stole the stuff away before I had a proper chance to experiment with it)
You probably know that as well as writing Pretty Pretty Pretty with me, Jo also edits The Wellingtonista and that right now they’ve got voting open for the Third Annual Wellingtonista Awards. Amongst the nominees for ‘Best Apparel‘ are some of our favourite stores Swonderful and Madame Fancy Pants, so we want to make sure that you know about them, and that you vote.
If you come along to the TAWAs award night, you’ll go into the draw to win a gorgeous prize pack from Linden Leaves but if you can’t make it on the night, or if you simply can’t wait to try their lovely stuff, we have a Pure Man Soap on a Rope to give away. I think the soap smells like rosemary, strangely enough given that’s one of its main ingredients, while Jo goes to far as to say “If I wasn’t happy being a crazy cat lady, I might be tempted to leave this soap under my pillow so that I could imagine that there was a gorgeous-smelling man sleeping next to me at night, But I’m not that lame, honest!”
If you wanna win the soap, just tell us what your favourite nominee in the TAWAs is before voting closes next Tuesday, and we’ll draw it with the randomiser.
