@O'Douds Apothecary i just received my odouds blue summer pomade last week and havent used it since. I accidentaly drop the jar when i lifted it holding just the jar cover. The jar shatters. I remove all the fragments and transferred it in a clear plastic. Is it okay in this plastic container? Will it not have any chemical change in its effectiveness and usability if it is not sealed in a jar and in a plastic only?

Massdrop has incredibly fast service when purchasing from their site. I hope to keep waiting for this to ship out in the next century or so.
I'm shocked that an order on Massdrop has been delayed! That never happens.
I have dry, rough and thick hair. I like to style my hair back. Which of three versions would be best suited to me?
This discussion ended in a spectacularly unexpected way. Thanks for the knowledge and entertainment. I like lavender myself; reminds me of all those romantic southern France vacations I never took.
So what are the main differences between the standard and multipurpose pomades? Just that the multipurpose is more water resistant that the standard?
Thanks for the question. That is correct, the Standard Pomade has practically the same uses with Hold and Shine, but it is a water soluble product which will wash out with water. The Multi-Purpose is still a water based pomade, but is water resistant and will need to be shampooed out. It is great for an active lifestyle or regions that have high humidity. It will be sure to last! Hope that helps.
I've bought two pastes, why isn't it shipped yet? the shipping date was two days ago ):
There is a delay. I received an email from Massdrop saying they would notify us of the delay was expected to be more than a month. No other details provided.
I can order directly from O'Douds with free shipping. If I order through Massdrop I pay $3.50 per order and have to wait a month. What am I missing, where is the value?

Good points, didn't know about the 12% discount on auto-renew.
You're right. They offer coupons too so buying from the source would be cheaper than this drop unless buying in bulk. MD did make me aware of the value of these products though, so it was good promotion for O'Douds.
O'Douds products usually receiving positive feedback from James, who's reviews I occasionally turn to, Recently he made all three of new Apothecary product reviews from this drop: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpovtGRRfLs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZWIUYzZmS0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueT8ldi_E90

I like the packaging. And the fact it's 4oz for under $20 And the mix of ingredients is pretty damn good.
One concern though. I know Lavender is listed last meaning it's the least amount, but personally I avoid all lavender products. And I recommend all men do to. But it's an opinion and yes, its a testosterone thing.
As always. Love seeing new stuff on MD. Thanks O'Douds!

Your comments about lavender and "a testosterone thing" made me curious (I'm a guy who likes lavender-scented things), and I decided to look into the medical literature to see if there was any truth to the claims floating around on the internet.
The idea of lavender oil increasing estrogen production in men stems from reports of some boys developing gynecomastia ("man boobs") after using hair or skin products containing lavender and/or tea tree oil. While it was determined that the oils in these products were the cause of these boys' conditions, and that a number of plant-derived essential oils can affect hormone levels in young boys, there are a couple of important things to keep in mind before someone decides to trash their fragrance/pomade/beard oil collection. The first glaring issue here is sample size; two reports* seem to be the bases for virtually all of the "lavender will make you grow boobs" articles (that I could find, at least). Each of these reports describes the conditions of three boys, and it would be a stretch to consider six cases to be in any way indicative of the norm. Additionally, all of the cases in question occurred in boys (ages 4-10) who had not yet undergone puberty, and would therefore have testosterone levels much lower than those of post-pubescent males, potentially making them more sensitive to changes in their testosterone/estrogen levels.
There very little, if any, scientific evidence to indicate that exposure to lavender oil would cause adult males to develop breasts. If anyone can find a peer-reviewed, academic journal article that says otherwise, I'd be very interested to read it. This is absolutely not meant to be a personal attack against the OP or people who share his opinions; I have a background in cellular biology, and I happen to be very passionate about scientific literacy and correcting misconceptions about research findings.
*For those interested, the papers can be found here: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa064725#t=abstract https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26353172
Thanks for looking stuff up. I'm all for debunking myths. And this one looks to be just that. I still personally avoid lavender.
And yes. I was never posting here for shits and giggles to be a jerk. I sincerely meant my OP based on opinion and factually incorrect studies.
