    I use Suavecito Original which I get from Felipe & Sons Barberdashery (El Pueblo Ortigas or BGC). They work great and they smell good, too, unlike other hair gel. It is gel-type and water-based, meaning it is not harmful and is easily washed off.

    Original hold is P795 also available on Lazada. The strong/firm hold is 3x the price, though.

    I used that when I was in grade school! Red canister, with white bottom. Smelled great, though you could really see it was oil based. My Dad used to buy my stash from the Middle East, supposedly really cheap there.

    My wife just got me Lucky 35 Clay, used to use Gatsby. Will be trying the 8 Wolves pomade next.

    Tancho Tique, the pomade of singing idols like Eddie Peregrina and Diomedes Maturan...

    Sobrang makapagtigas ng buhok kahit bagyo di kaya guluhin...

    I strictly use water based pomade. I don't like the feel the difficulty of removing oil base Pomade. I always pick up my pomade at Felipe and Son .So it was Suavecito Original, then Nth Wave now Frank Co in Sandalwood and Mint at P400 which I think will be my default for the next few months

    As I kid I used Brycreem until the hairstyling gel came along. My dad was using Three Flowers Pomade. Para sa lalaking disente. :D:D:D:D

    Brylcreem for most of grade school and early high school years.

    Funny sidenote, I remember a quick conversation back between my auntie and her lesbian lover when i was still 11:

    Lesbiana: 'Ling?? (darling)
    Auntie: Ano???!
    Lesbiana: Asan yung pomada?!!!

    Taob si Charice. LOL

    I imagine 'pamada' has come a long way since. Back then, 'pamada' was only associated to our 'lolos' with their super slick, brushed up hairstyle and distinct scent, "Amoy matanda!" Now, it has gone full circle, but much improved, thanks to science.

    God you nailed it. Can you imagine, that lesbian was really amoy matanda? So masculine and damn stenchy (at least to me). The pomade and its scent make manliness achievable half-way through. :D:D:D:D:D

    I used Grasa (locally made) before i switched to wax. There's an FB group where you can contact sellers of this brand.

    OT: Any recommended barber around Ortigas area? I've asked several barbers to copy Gordon Hayward's haircut but I didn't get the look that I wanted - I even showed the a video how it was done.

    Felipe & Sons at El Pueblo IMO is the best. P360 for a swabeng haircut, shampoo, freshly brewed coffee or tea, and a brief upper body massage and facial hot towel post-haircut. They have fast Wi-Fi, sofa lounge for waiting customers, and the ambience is superb. Parking fee though is P50, and best to make an appointment 1-2 days before you visit as it is always fully booked.

    Here are the nos. to their branches:

    9973724 El Pueblo, Ortigas
    6255735 Salcedo Makati
    8100967 BGC Forbes Street

    I've used up my Suavecito as well, I feel like it's just a regular gel, don't you guys think so too?

    Water based pomades aren't built for people that moves around or is active, it loses its hold once you sweat.

    You may be right. It is somehow like a gel, and perhaps the Firm Hold version which is 3x more expensive will work better for playing. I've needed to apply a lot more for it to hold when I play basketball.

    I'll try the other brands recommended here.

    True depends on each lifestyle. I need my hair neat while working which pretty much in aircon environment, however, when I work out our even day off I don't put anything on my hair to give it a day to "rest"
