"holy fauxhawk"

from wikipedia:
Chrism (Greek word literally meaning "an anointing"), also called "myrrh" (myron), holy anointing oil, or "consecrated oil", is a consecrated oil used in the Roman Catholic Church in the administration of certain sacraments.

Chrism is made of olive oil and is scented with a sweet perfume, usually balsam.

its scent has been likened to clove cigarettes. 

it does not mean jism of christ. 

it has been bemoaned for its tendency to seep into stuffed animals and clothing. 

it may take more than 2 shampoos to remove the scent.

it makes a fine hair gel for the recently baptized.
