The Future of Pomade in Malaysia I know it's been a while since I've dropped a post, and that's because there's just so much happening. We are receiving numerous orders from www.barbergum.com and things are getting a little out of hand here. At the same time, we are also receiving pomade review requests and we owe it to the brewers. My sincere apologies on this. Touching on the Future of Pomade in Malaysia - What I have seen here in Malaysia is a surge of independent brewers, some of which b...

Reizend Pomade Review

There are frequently new innovations within the Pomade scene in Malaysia. I guess that is what intrigues me to continue writing, testing new products.

We received a sample not too long ago, and first look - we like how it looks. I won't say the design is out of the world, it's simple, clear and the colors used are nice. It m...

NaramuQ Water based Pomade Review

I'm glad to see that there is an increase of local brands making pomades. Now the trouble is with so many selections out there, there must be good and bad pomades. I would like to clarify that there are many ways you can classify pomades, apart from being water or oil based. One of the way that I would classify it is: International pomades Local high range pomades Local mid range pomades. To begin with, pomades are not cheap. Nothing goes below RM30 (for 100g) and you probably pay ...
