Firehouse Moustache Wax, Wacky Tacky Review

A recipe guarded since its creation, the Firehouse Moustache Wax doesn’t fool around when delivering quality products. This mustache wax is assumed to use both beeswax and petroleum jelly, and it has a very mild to unscented scent to it. While the ingredients aren’t openly available to the public, the long lasting hold of this wax is, and you will be impressed with how this wax strengthens and holds your mustache in place all day long.

The first thing you may notice about this wax is that it is a very dark brown. While this may be worrying for some, it actually does not stain your hair at all. In fact, it does lighten up when you apply it, and you only need a little bit to get a decent hold on your mustache. You can add more than the recommended pea-sized amount if you have a lot of hair, but the standard amount should be all you need. Many reviewers love the way that this wax holds; it’s strong and secure, and doesn’t fall apart at the end of the day. There is a reason they call it “Wacky Tacky”.

This stuff is strong, and quite stiff. As a result, it’s not as malleable as the other mustache waxes on the market. You may be unable to adjust your mustache after the wax has been applied. In fact, it could be likened to a sort of hair cement. It does keep your mustache in line, and works fantastic for those with a very thick or bushy mustache.

Bottom Line: While it is a great mustache wax to use, the stiffness of it is not everyone’s cut of lumber. It smells great, with a fantastic woodsy scent to pair with the wax that they use. The wax is dark, and it shouldn’t stain light colored hair, though if you over apply, it could show up as a waxy residue on your mustache, which isn’t ideal. Finally, this mustache wax is incredibly expensive at nearly $17 for 1 oz of product.
