Brylcreem — A Little Dab'll Do Ya!



Advertised on television with the jingle 

"Brylcreem — A Little Dab'll Do Ya!"

"They'll love to run their fingers through your hair"

When the dry look became popular, the last line was changed from "They'll love to run their fingers through your hair" to "They'll love the natural look it gives your hair."



Brylcreem is a brand of hair styling products for men. The first Brylcreem product was a pomade created in 1928 by County Chemicals at the Chemico Works in Bradford Street, Birmingham, England. The pomade is an emulsion of water and mineral oil stabilised with beeswax.

Beecham was the longtime owner of Brylcreem. Sara Lee bought the personal care unit of SmithKline Beecham in 1992. In 2012, the global rights to sell Brylcreem brand was sold by Sara Lee Corporation to Unilever.

Various Brylcreem products are sold worldwide. Brylcreem is marketed in the US by Combe Incorporated, in Europe by Unilever and in India byHUL. Before Godrej acquired 51 percent stake of Sara Lee in their joint venture Godrej Sara Lee in 2010, the brand was distributed by Godrej in India.

It was first

Subsequent television advertisements used the mottoes "Grooms without gumming" and later, in the 1970s in the UK and Canada, "A little dab of Brylcreem on your hair gives you the Brylcreem jump in the air".
