The Johnny Slicks Story
In mid July of 2016, a 3am alarm woke me to start my day. After showering I began to style my hair like I did every day, as I was about to style the back of my scalp I saw that the hair on my crown was thinning. After what seemed to be hours of pure panic I was able to problem solve and realize the hair product I was using had ingredients that disgusted me. I never thought to look at the back of products that said "natural" to see whats in them. Alcohol, Plastic, Petrol, and countless more is what I was applying to my hair and scalp EVERY DAY. I used the product because it was cheap and super popular. These big brand grooming products that are claiming to be "natural" were causing me dandruff, irritated scalp, thinning hair, and a constant falling out of hair.
I made it a goal to find a formula that would fix what these big brands have done and continue to do to people. After being completely blown away by the chemistry I decided to take an odd approach and go to barber school. There I learned the basics of hair styling and cutting. But only a few chapters interested me, Anatomy, Chemistry, and Aromatherapy. Once I understood the basics of each of those sciences I began to mix them. Taking the anatomy of the hair and scalp, the perfect oil formula, and how certain scents can effect your mood. And BOOM! The worst Pomade I've ever made was sitting on my counter! But it was a Pomade nonetheless.
Every penny I had was immediately spend on new supplies. But once I didn't have any more pennies to put towards supplies I began to sell my plasma to help the process along. Around this time I was separating from the Marine Corps and getting ready to grow a beard. Having knowledge of hair and skin I knew I needed an oil to help promote healthy hair growth and stop the beard itch so I began mixing and cooking oils to make a Beard Oil. I finished both the Pomade and Beard Oil in March of 2017 with nothing but all Organic ingredients.
Finally! I began to sell my products in barber shops and for some reason I couldn't convince anyone to purchase my product rather than the big brands product. So I started giving my Pomade and Beard Oil to everyone I saw and soon enough people started to notice ole Johnny! I started to get feedback saying I completely changes lives!
It wasn't until February of 2018 when Johnny Slicks hit the map. Partnering with Nick Koumalatsos and now curing people all over the world!
