The Important Stuff: Our formula contains argan oil, which is high in antioxidants, unsaturated fatty acids, and vitamins. In fact, it contains about 7x the amount of Omega-6 than jojoba! Argan oil is great for your hair and scalp. This formula has a strong hold that will last all day long. If your hair gets messed up throughout the day, just add a little water to reactivate the hold. It’s water soluble and easily washes out in the shower. All of our pomade scents are inspired by true stories.
We held a giveaway on Instagram hosted by our pal @Sad_Officer_Memes for the best Lost Lieutenant stories. Here are the winners:
1. No shit there we were in Afghanistan on the Uplift mission. My LT failed to get off the MI-17 following a mission at our camp (how he didn’t notice we were back I don’t know until this day) and consequently was flown halfway to Dahlke before they turned around and dropped him back off. I still have a pic of his walk of shame on the DZ from the CROWS.
2. It was week 5 of being a brand new 2LT. I was doing gunnery tables with my new platoon. General Milley came for a base visit and decided to come visit our range with his massive entourage of VIPs. My NCOs had me convinced that the General was going to ride onto the range in a SLING LOADED HMMWV for effect. I was legit convinced and thinking it was badass... I didn’t yet realize that it was just as much dangerous as it was impossible. Here I was, looking at the sky, telling everyone how awesomely cool that was, when all their minivans pulled in. My guys died laughing at me.
3. I was running a 101 fever and had explosive diarrhea (in September) at Fort Benning during the last mission at ARC. This was the same mission all the VIPs from the maneuver center came to observe. I was made the Senior Scout of our Stryker platoon, took a wrong turn, and ended up on First Division Road (you know, the road with signs that read, “NO TACTICAL VEHICLES”). Of course this occurred during morning rush hour so turning around was impossible... So, there I am, shit running down my leg, trying to turn a Stryker Platoon around a traffic jam of at least 80-100 cars with an entourage of international Generals watching from the side of the road.
4. This Infantry 1LT was relegated to the S1 shop after being kicked around a bit because nobody wanted him to be in their section. He’s now a PAO non-tab that has to take pictures of the ranges. Standard range. Dude decides he’d walk in from the side of the range and not check in with the tower. The boys did so well on the iteration that they skipped the second dry fire and went straight to live. Meanwhile, non-tab PAO is laying in the prone downrange as the boys begin to engage targets with live ammo, until someone spots him, and the OIC cusses him out! That, my friends, is how you earn your stateside CIB and a GOMOR (General Officer Memorandum of Reprimand)!
5. I was a Med PL and the Field Grades were being eaten alive by bugs during table XIIs. One field grade kept bugging me (no pun intended) for bug bite medication. So after a long day of training I presented him with hydrocortisone cream and some birth control pills I found in one of our TCMC sets. Our CSM recognized the pills immediately and was giving me updates on when the field grade was taking them. Our Battalion Commander thought it was hilarious and got in on it too!
1. Use your right index finger to scoop up fingertip amount of pomade.
2. Wipe the pomade from your finger onto your left palm.
3. Work the pomade between your palms.
4. Apply pomade to the hair on your head.
5. Comb through and style as desired or authorized.
6. Don’t be a commie.
7. Post your hairdo on Instagram and tag us (@CombatCombover).
For a stronger hold with less shine, apply to dry hair. For a bit more shine, apply to damp hair. We personally recommend applying pomade to lightly damp hair. The more you use the stronger the hold!
