High Life pomade
I'm new in the pomade game so I'm looking around for what's good and what's best. I hear good things about Suavecito. How does High Life compare? I wear a business style cut parted on the side. My hair is short on the sides and 2" or so on top. I don't want a lot of shine just a lot of hold. How do these 2 compare? Or should I be looking for something else?

RE: High Life pomade
They're completely different products. Suavecito is a gel even if it says pomade on the tin. A good one but a gel all the same. HL is a pomade. It's a petrolatum based grease that won't wash out easily. There are several versions but I hear that the Heavy hold version is one of the hardest pomades in the market. It's not for the beginner. I would advice to get the medium first to see if this kind of product is something for you or not. I own the medium. It's a pretty greasy product that smells heavily of coconut and vanilla. It's not strong enough for my thick hair that leaves a too greasy feeling for me. HL is produced by DAX. I'd advice you'll try the red DAX. I like it better and it's much cheaper.

RE: High Life pomade
Thanks for the info, Thomas. My wife bought me some Suavecito so I look forward to checking it out. I also have some Murray's coming to try. I think I'd like something that isn't a pain to wash out so water base is what I'm looking for at this point.

Any other advice or tips are welcome!

RE: High Life pomade
In that case you should stay away from Murrays like from the plague. Especially if its Superior. That stuff is a PITA to wash out. But in fact, non wash out pomade also has advantages. In fact, I much prefer petrolatum based pomades. The feel and look is incomparable to a gel. You'll use much less (a tin of Murrays lasts an eternity) and save money. The first time and after washing out you'll use more (two to three scoops would be a starting point, depending on your hair and the style you prefer) and then a small amount each day would do the job. I also find that my hair looks much healthier than before and that it would cause hair loss, which some believe, is an urban myth IMO. Just try for yourself. What works for me may not work for you. And BTW, you can safely use Murrays as a base and finish with Suavecito. You'll use much less Suavecito that way.
