The Triumph & Disaster Ponsonby Pomade was featured in GQ's list of 'Best men's hair products to achieve any style.'
In the article, GQ writes 'Triumph & Disaster, the efficacious grooming brand created by ex-professional cricketer Dion Nash, takes pleasure in introducing us to potent active ingredients (often indigenous to the brand’s native New Zealand, but not exclusively) that are rarely seen in Europe. Take its nutrient-rich, water-based pomade, for example, which effectively holds hair firmly in its place while calming and soothing with a blend of Sangre de grado (AKA dragon’s blood), a healing, natural tree resin used as a medicine by the Amazonians for centuries, and harakeke (NZ flax oil), a natural emulsifier with scalp-health benefits. A medium-hold styling tool with a high-shine finish, its non-greasy texture (oily pomades and hair products are direct contributors to acne) treats split ends and promotes healthy hair growth thanks to a nutritious dose of argan oil. Good for short to medium hair lengths, weather-resistant and featuring a bespoke T&D fragrance, it’s like a moisturiser for your hair and scalp that lets you style with ease while protecting it from future damage.'
