After a long, hard day of doing manly things like Yeti hunting and combing your pomp back into place, a real man needs his comb to do double duty. The Old Familiar Comb Bottle Opener not only keeps you high-and-tight, it also helps you crack open a bottle of your favorite liquid bread. Designed by an authentic, tattooed barber and crafted completely in Buckeye country, these hardcore combs are laser cut from 12ga stainless steel, and come in two versions — a mini Mustache/ Beard Comb ($10) or the big daddy Full Size Comb ($23).
Take the phrase "you smell like beer" to a whole new level with Duffy's Brew Beer Shampoo ($16). Made with Elysian Brewing Co.'s Dragonstooth stout, this 100% vegan shampoo leverages the hops, barley, and malt found in the beer to coat your hair with vitamin B, proteins, and minerals, while botanical extracts of acai berry, jojoba, aloe leaf, and sunflower seed help heal your hair. Sadly unavailable in a six-pack.
Rid yourself of unsightly shoulder snow with Dandrene Anti-Dandruff Shampoo ($28). Unlike most off-the-shelf solutions, Dandrene uses a mixture of Climbazole — don't worry, we had to look it up too — Pomegranate Extract, and other anti-fungal, oil-fighting agents to help clear out the cause of the flakes instead of just the flakes itself, meaning that while it might cost as much as 10 bottles of Head & Shoulders, it likely works 10 times as well.
Take back control of your hair with John Allan's Tough Fortifying Styling Paste ($18). Packing vitamins A, C and E to help protect your hair and scalp, this flexible hold paste is also fortified with anti-oxidants, acai, red tea and organic pomegranate, giving it enough muscle to hold up against heinous humidity.
Looking for some hair product that gives strong hold while leaving your hair looking natural instead of greased-up? Try out some Bumble and Bumble Sumo Tech ($28). Recommended by Uncrate readers, this paste/wax hybrid is designed for highly textured cuts, letting you mould and re-mould your hair as you see fit, and won't overwhelm fine hair, which makes it perfect for those of us who are thinning a bit upstairs.
If you're wanting to look good for that special someone you're trying to impress at the gym, you better make sure your 'do stays in place. The solution is Redken for Men Mint Fix Sweat-Resist Gel ($12; Jan. 2009), a workout-proof gel which offers super strong hold and a clear formula that won't flake.
You're a man, and such you need not constant reminders of your manliness. Take for instance, Gear Head Shampoo ($6), featuring all sorts of manly ingredients like Aloe Vera gel, oils of lemon, orange and basil fragrances, and Jojoba oil, all poured into a man-friendly, motor oil-esque bottle. If you don't have a penis, this stuff clearly isn't for you. Save 20% with coupon code UNCRATE.

Forget packing the tiny travel bottle on your next trip and instead opt for some Dissolving Paper Shampoo ($13).
