Re: Bryllcreme - a little dab 'll do ya
In the early 50s I had longer than average hair quite often. I had nothing to keep it in place but water. As I became a teen of fourteen, I began to use Bryllcreme. It made my hair dark and shiny and held it in a dt very efficiently. Even allowed a ringlet to drop down over my forehead. This lasted until 1962, when as a sailor I needed no dressing.
My stepfather used Wildroot Creme Oil. It was made with soothing lanolin. Since he always wore it combed straight back I didn't see that it was all that necessary.
My oldest brother used a pomeade because he had a combined flat-top and dt. It kept the short hair standing up and the sides swept to the back.
What about you old guys? What did you do with your hair?
a little dab'll do ya
use more only if you dare
but watch out
the gal's will all pursue ya
they love to run their fingers through your hair
the song lingers on even if the follicles don't
