The Iron Society Grooming Aid is an old fashioned petroleum based hair pomade that gives a medium to strong hold. The pomade comes in a 1930's style amber jar and has a nice, musky, masculine scent with a hint of citrus. The grooming aid works best with shorter hair styles and adds a great shine that people will definitely notice. Old Fashioned Mens Grooming Aid is a petroleum based pomade designed to keep your hair under control for that neat freshly combed look. Although not water soluble, a few good washes and you'll be ready for a fresh layer. Each jar of pomade is handmade so there's no question of quality or craftsmanship.
