Apex Pressing Oil

 Another hairstylist referred the Apex pressing oil to me for old school pressing.  So far I like it.  It's made of petroleum and lanolin.  Lanolin is a natural oil found in sheep's wool to protect them from the cold weather according to online research.  Most reviews of the Apex pressing oil is favorable.  When used sparingly, I found it to work well to moisturize without weighing the hair down.  I used it in place of the curling wax.

 I was told that the pressing oil was in this tin because in the old school days, the heat from the stove would help melt the pressing oil within the tin.  So, in other words, the tin jar would conduct some of the heat to warm the pressing oil.

According to the instructions on the jar, the pressing oil can be used as a daily pomade.
