Applying a Reuzel Pomade
Not all Reuzel Pomades are applied equal. In general you usually scoop out some pomade with your finger and then you rub it between your hands to break it down. After that you apply it in your hair.
It depends on your hairstyle if you should apply the Reuzel pomade in either dry or damp hair. In dry hair you usually will achieve the highest hold. In slightly damp hair you will get some more shine. Style your Reuzel hairstyle with your hands if you prefer messy and tousled looks. Use a comb or hair brush when you go for those classic and groomed looks.
In the Moquer shop you can read for every Reuzel product how it is best applied in your hair.
