In which G.M. Norton tests out a new hair product that makes big bold claims.
I’m a pomade man. I wear it every day and it gives me the look that I desire. So when I received a missive from the interestingly named The Legends London, offering me the chance to test out their new hair gel, I had my doubts.
Over the course of my life, my experience of hair gel has never really been very positive so the mere mention of the word ‘gel’ doesn’t have terribly good associations with me.
Pomade on the other hand is a safe word, a dependable word.
I have an inquisitive nature though so as the hair gel that The Legends were offering was completely free, I thought, why the devil not?
A few days later and the 220ml tub was in my hands, ready to give the hair gel its first outing. As first impressions go, I was quite taken with the red retro design. It wasn’t one of those achingly modern tubs that I associate with hair gel.
