When it comes to men's hairstyling products Dapper Dan is a relative newcomer to the market. But that hasn't stopped the Dapper Dan Deluxe Pomade from garnering plenty of attention. And, there's a lot to love about this down-to-earth brand and their sweet, shiny pomade.
And now there's another new pomade on the block.
The guys over at Mack for Men take style seriously and their ShapeShifter is turning heads. It's been seen on the red carpet and in styling kits across the country.
Obviously, here at Faveable, we had no choice but to see how these pomades stack up against each other.
So, that's what we did. We applied, styled, sniffed, waited and washed both Dapper Dan Deluxe Pomade and Mack for Men ShapeShifter to head after head.
And this is what we found.
The verdict: Mack for Men ShapeShifter takes it hands down.
You don't expect a gel-like hold when you turn to a pomade, but you also want something that handles more than flyaways. With Mack for Men ShapeShifter, you get a stronger hold with plenty of control that nears the gel edge of the spectrum (but without the crunch, you expect with gel) which is a lot more than you're going to get with Dapper Dan Delux Pomade.
The verdict: It's a win for Mack for Men ShapeShifter pomade.
We didn't award the win based on advertising claims but on the actual control over shine level. And the folks at Mack for Men have it together here.
The verdict: Mack for Men takes it again.
There's no way to compete with the way ShapeShifter pomade feels in your hand or in your hair. Clearly, the guys over at Mack for Men spent a lot of time on this aspect of product formulation.
The verdict: It couldn't be anything but a tie.
Both Dapper Dan Deluxe Pomade and Mack for Men ShapeShifter pomade perform beautifully here; it couldn't be anything but a tie.
The verdict: Mack for Men by a mile.
This was an easy category to award. The scent of Mack for Men is simply incredible. You need to try it for yourself.
The verdict: Landslide win for Mack for Me ShapeShifter pomade.
There's no competition here. You want all the organic beeswax and extracts that you get with Mack for Men. You're also avoiding parabens, DMDM and a bunch of ingredients you don't want. In other words, there's no trade-off and nothing to fault.
The verdict: Dapper Dan Deluxe Pomade is the winner here.
Perhaps we shouldn't be comparing by price, but rather value for money. It's clear where Mack for Men have put the extra, but if you're comparing ounce by ounce, it's a win for Dapper Dan.
So, will you make the switch to Mack for Men ShapeShifter?
We don't we why you wouldn't give this one a try. Besides smelling oh-so-good, you're getting amazing ingredients and the hold and shine you've always wanted. We love it and think you will too.
