Hi guys. I’ve been facing scalp acne (whole head, more on sweat line) for the longest time. Tried many different methods, shampoo, hair tonic.

Any shampoo/recommendations to cure? Looking to cut my hair very short as well but not sure does it help.

Ps: also facing hair fall issues
shampoo all these won't cure de

u need to see a dermatologist

he will prescribe oral antibiotics as a first measure, it will clear but will almost certainly come back

last resort is eat the most potent medicine, Isotretinoin, which you dry you up completely.

i have been clear after taking it since 2016.

Hope all sg pomade sellers will run discounts/promos on 11.11 singles day or black friday this month... best time to stock up for the year ahead.

Decided to throw in one last hail mary and bought the Chrome version direct from MM SG to see if there could be a chance for redemption.

Received today. Same black tub. Same ominous note in the box. Same disappointing new DNA. I guess this marks the end of an era.

I would strongly advise against buying their products till you see proof that they’ve reverted the formula.
Over the last few days, I even resorted to borrowing my bro’s white label bs to use in place of my TSB as it was too uncomfortable to apply. Was pulling way too much at my hair.
Never had this issue with the previous formulation which was why I liked the product so much in the first place. Not worth the trouble seeing that longevity is also abysmal.

Dropped them an email last weekend and no response as of yet.
Took me 200 dollars to finally come to the conclusion that the MM we once knew is no more.

I also bought Morris Motley TSB from Shopee "inboxmobile" in August. I usually buy another tub early way before the old one finishes.

Started using them last week and I thought I have bought a fake one from the seller. The feel and style for this tub is terrible. Felt like some cheapo hair wax and no longer get the natural wavy look I used to get.

Until I started looking into this thread.

I am thinking of trying to buy another tub from my previous seller; Shopee hairunited or Lazada BeautyAllure. Another have better experience with them?

I am personally looking at moving on to other products and I honestly think you should look elsewhere too.

It looks to me that almost all sellers have converted to the new stock unfortunately. It is very likely that you will get the downgraded new version of TSB if you buy from any other seller as the source comes from the same local distributor who are themselves selling it.

i'm worse, never had a chance to try the original formula

just bought my first tub on wednesday and it already felt crap.

hold is not there, pulls out hair, texture is not there, just feels like a clump after application, reminds me of joico clay

felt so shortchanged paying $50 for this crap

Ever since this Gentleman haircut started a few years back, just wondering for those who have such haircuts, do you all have it done in any other salon?

Or in shops meant for the said haircut such as this one?

Thank you for your feedback.

We will look into this issue and give an update soon.



Could you please send us a picture or video of your chrome texture that you bought from Amazon SG? If possible, the contents in the jar and the bottom of the jar for any batch codes if any.

Thank you.



Regards,

Morris Motley Singapore

Pretty standard lah. They also need concrete evidence to investigate.
Just hope its batch issue & they can resolved it regardless

no such things as fake mm, only old stock mm. mm shelf life is 24 months if you look carefully at the packaging.

I just bought and received another tub from Zalora fulfilled by Hall of Goods. Same crap.

Their emails seem to tell that they knows there are fakes outside. My previous original tub has a batch code. This 2 new tub of crap doesn’t come with a batch code and the wordings are different

the local distributor should come clean

perhaps we should just ditch MM for good
