    I was wondering how you thought they held up for shine as I'm looking for the super wet, shiny look. I've searched around but found not much on Groom and Clean for example. I definitely don't want to use hard holding pomades, I like light hold like these two.

    I was wondering about this lately, myself. It has been over a year and a half since I last used Brylcreem. I have since used Dax Wave & Groom, which is thick, hard-holding if much is used, and not that shiny. I'm interested in knowing what Groom & Clean is like. Do they still make it, or did it go out of production recently? Also, what about Vitalis in comparison to these other two?

    They still make it and Vitalis. I have some Vitalis but haven't used it lately. It seems to add shine, but barely any hold (not a huge issue for me). It's like $7 a bottle and I'm not completely sure it's worth it. The scent is kinda weird, but I like it for what it is. I've heard Family Dollar has a copy for $1.50 that is just as good.

    Groom and Clean is still around, I use it everyday. It has some shine, but it being water based doesn't hold as well as Dax. Just gotta slap on a decent amount and you're set for a day.
    That being said I love Dax, used it for about 5 years before switching. Just got tired of the overall mess that came with it. (Mind you the hold and look was/is great!).

    So essentially as I thought, Groom and Clean is less shine but more hold. I have both but I don't want to wash out my hair so much in one week. Thanks for the help guys :)
