Ubersuave, GetZGY, Jasyounic, Apestomen

Attn: All who were interested, or part of the discussion about the local products like GetZGY and Ubersuave


Rmb we were discussing about the products actually being MIC and how selective advertising was used? Well apparently SGPomades have released a new line called Apestomen. Frequent users of the Shopee app would probably have heard of it. Selling like hotcakes now.. Concept wise same as the brands mentioned above. Advertised as: SG brand, Formulated in USA. But flipping around and looking at the product label, it clearly states MIC.

Now clearly they didn't lie about anything.. but the way in which they framed the info.. "SG brand but formulated USA" without any statement about the product being MIC. Ethical or not? Cos most of us seeing the words "formulated in USA" are going to assume that the product was made in USA. The word "formulated" is kind of ambiguous here especially for consumers new to the game. Food for thought.

A user by the moniker of slxdegrees posted in the comments section, went to slam them. Quite an interesting exchange between both him and SGPomades. All who are interested should go take a look. I took SS but lazy to post haha.. If only hwz would allow direct upload for pics.

Today styled my hair wit mm chrome,anybody know how to make the not that curl?Been trying to use hair dryer to make it straight but keep having hard time.

Simple solution is to cut it short. Your fringe is too long which is why it starts to curl up. Cutting it shorter will solve the problem.

Styled with dynamite clay. Didnt prestyle because somehow i wokeup with my hair standing striaght up
Thanks for sharing bro! If you allow me to put in my 2cents, suggest to wash your hair and blowdry to be able to shape your hair better, layer your hair (personally i think its too thick and naturally heavy for any styling).

Please note that the above does not mention any prestyler but not recommended to style the hair after just woke up. It's likely that it wont be a good hair day.

hi all,

want to check:

1) for delaying male balding to as late as possible, anyone tried using Nizoral A-D shampoo before? i'm taking all necessary steps to keep my hair for as long as i can. according to many reviews, Nizoral shampoo has this ketoconazole ingredient that can get rid of the DHT on the scalp and DHT is the main cause for hair loss if i'm not wrong. only issue is that this kind of shampoo seems to be quite drying for the hair.

2) anyone tried those scalp treatment at neighbourhood salons before? do they work? does hair become healthier and thus result in less hair loss?
1. Yes DHT is the main culprit for men's balding. Do try it out and let us know. Since we're on this topic, do keep out for a new DHT stopper shampoo on TPJ!

2. Yes, i tried it out. For that moment, yes. You will feel refreshed and feel some differences to your scalp. But the word is feel. Unlikely to see any visible differences if its just an once off thing. For those to work, the frequency of the treatment matters.

Hi guys

I am currently using American Crew Defining Paste but want to try something different. The one thing I dislike about the paste is that it takes a couple of shampoo washes to get rid of.

Because I want something that washes off more easily, I’ve been done some googling and it looks like the common recommended brands are water-based pomades like Shear Revival Crystal Lake and Daimon Barber no. 1. Morris Motley seems to be a popular brand here at HWZ as well.

Are any of these similar to the AC Defining Paste in terms of hold (medium) and shine (low), but better at washing off?

Thanks!
