ABOUT THE POMADE:
We’ve been asked so many times over the years to create a soft scoopable product similar to say… “Royal Crown” or “Murray’s” where it’s soft and scoops like jelly and lays heavy in the hair like most old school pomades. Murray’s is not really scoopable but you get the idea where I was going :P Water based pomades come close to being that style but water based pomades are nothing like oil based and don’t act, look or wear anything like the others! We knew there had to be some way to bridge this gap and create an oil based pomade that was similar without the horrible ingredients found in both old school and new school pomades.
The problem is what makes Royal Crown, Murray’s and others like it have that kind of consistency is LOTS OF CHEMICALS, Petroleum by products and God knows what else they are telling you about that’s in there. To be honest, natural products just don’t really blend that way so it creates the problem of creating natural versions of unnatural things… not the easiest thing in the world!!! But by golly I think we’ve got a winner with this here pomade.
I was on a mission to create a similar product but be able to substitute natural, organic oils, butters and waxes. I’ve tried many times over the years to create a “GREASE/POMADE” that was like the old school ones in the sense that it laid really HEAVY and would give that nostalgic vibe but be a great “greaser” product that anyone could use and not just the guys rocking out to Social D or hanging at the car shows. The Black Cat pomade is MATTE, SOFT but with a great hold and it retains it’s hold far longer than even I would have expected! It’s truly a unique and one of a kind hair pomade that I find myself using far far far far more often than I would have ever expected.
When creating our Lone Wolf pomade I knew instantly we would have to create a similar one with a stronger hold. This is a completely different recipe for those who want a strong hold without a shiny finish. If you need a strong hold but want some shine you can always use a topper (like our brilliantine) our just add a shinier pomade (our Lone Wolf, Dead Elvis Grease etc..) lightly at the end.
Looking for a medium hold or maybe something similar that will make your hair nice and shiny and slick? When we created this product I knew right away I needed something with a much stronger hold for my liking so we created LONE WOLF POMADE for this reason. You can find it in our shop with the other pomades.
The Black Cat Pomade to me is more of a Firm/Strong hold without being hard and crunchy like a gel or some water based pomades are! It’s nice and easy to spread and the hold will last all day. It’s nice and easy to spread and the hold stays all day long!
Our “Signature” Scent covers all the bases. Since we sell many pomades and products to both Men and Women alike, we wanted a scent that wasn’t too masculine nor too feminine. A scent that you would smell and instantly wanna take if for a spin in your hair :P Let’s be honest when it comes to “perfumes” and “colognes” the scent is really for you since you are the one wearing it BUT that doesn’t mean your significant other won’t be getting up close and personal and catching a sniff :P
We took the classic barber shop style scent notes (powdery, floral, spicy) and subdued them so they wouldn’t be too powdery or soapy.
We then took our homemade Bay Rum we ferment and made a whole new batch leaving out any musk or over the top spice notes so you get a nice scent that’s not too strong and manly but touches on all those great classic scent notes your nose will recognize.
We finished this scent off with PURE SANDALWOOD oil, not fragrance oil or imitation. Anyone who knows that real and pure Sandalwood oil can be as expensive as gold! While expensive it finishes off this concoction perfectly and could not imagine it any other way.
JUST SOME VARIOUS INFO AND FAQ:
Auction is for one container, extra are pictured to give you an idea of the packaging and design. On occasion product packaging may change and be different than pictured. Sometimes our supplier will run out of a container, lid etc.. so please keep that in mind.packing color can change without notice, unfortunately once and awhile our supplier will run out of a certain color so we may substitute say "green" for "black" etc.. etc...
Unscented products are products without any added fragrance oil, there may be some residual "scent" from the ingredients. We offer most products without added scents for both folks with allergies and those who do not want perfumes and colognes in their products. Most products will have a drop down menu of available scents.
Scent Levels: We are committed to your health. We only scent our products to the lowest standard for any oils used. One scent oil might have a safe level of say 6% and another 1% but either way we always adhere to the safe level and never above. For this reason some scents might be very nuanced and not super strong.

Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
We can not accept returns on items like combs and brushes etc... I could never in good faith accept a used comb back and resell it nor can we take your word for it that you didn't brush with it :P. Just the thought of it makes me cringe typing this :P If you ordered something that wound up not being perfect for you then do get in touch and we can chat about giving you a discount code to try another item. BUT under no circumstance can I even think about taking back those kinds of items. We love our customers and always use the highest standards when it comes to health and safety.
Our typical packaging consists of brand new heavyweight boxes and new bubble wrap... BUT .... we hate waste here whether it's horn chunks, wood pieces or even packaging items we get ourselves. SOOOOO I always keep a big box full of brown recycled paper, used bubble wrap, air pillows and anything else I can reuse. We don't normally ship with it UNLESS someone asks so PLEASE PLEASE just add a note with your order if you would like Green packaging.
This seems to be the number one thing I've had emails about recently. All animals are treated with respect and dignity. When possible the material is sourced right on our farm but when needed we buy from other suppliers. It goes without saying that our GOAT and HORSE hair brushes are from "no kill" animals. Our boar hair is sourced in Texas from several places and is collected from wild boar who are hunted and processed for meat. There is no cruelty involved and all boars are dispersed as humanely as possible. Hair collection is only done when animal is processed after death.
Our animal hair is sourced right here in Texas. All our wood is sourced right here as well but there are a couple for obvious reasons like they don't grow in Texas that are sourced elsewhere. Same with the horns
We love what we make and our handmade items take up most of our free time these days. We treat each one like it's our artistic interpretation and as a piece of art. We no longer accept custom or personalized orders as what little free time goes into creating more product for our shop. Thank you for understanding.
Where applicable we will give an idea of the ingredients in the product. We do this for the love and all items are as advertised so if we say something is "glycol free" or "soy free" etc... it is. We love these products and we love you (our customers) so rest assured that our products are 100% as advertised. BUT, if you have a specific allergy please just email us and we can tell you if it's safe.
We are always happy to work with store owners, barber shops, online resellers and anyone who wants to sell Dixie Cowboy Products. Just send us a message and we can work on a custom wholesale order just for you. We are not currently wholesaling our handmade combs and brushes, it is just impossible to mass produce these at this time. Some minimums apply when placing items for resale.

Smells amazing! Works well on my fine hair. I use it for flyaways and for the occasional styling. I found the warmer the room is the easier it is to scoop out of the tin. It acts a lot like coconut oil as far as its reactions to hot and cold room temperatures.
