I didn't think they still made that stuff until I read about it here. Brylcreem, Vaseline Hair Tonic and Wildroot, were high school staples. They were the epitome of what Don Drysdale dismissed as "greasy kid's stuff" in Vitalis commercials."
Anyway, after reading all these laudatory posts about Brylcreem, I figured I pick up a tube. Sure is a lot pricier than it used to be; otherwise, it seems to be the same stuff.
A lot of guys my age abandoned traditional "hair tonic" products for gels in college. I've been using gels and mousses for more than forty years and have come to hate the way the stuff weighs my hair down. So when I saw that Brylcreem was still available, I thought it was again time for "a little dab."
Truly great stuff, and not nearly as greasy as I remember. (I guess my dabs were bigger then.) It adds just enough control and shine to make my hair tactilely attractive.
Just as the old jingle promised:
Brylcreem, a little dab'll do ya. They'll love to get their fingers in your hair.
Never thought I would ever be using Brylcreem again. Sure glad I stumbled across it here.
