By accident, I think I may have found a pomade combo that is absolutely the best. I love the Reuzel line especially their pomades and the pink can in particular. The problem was it was thick and sometimes was hard to comb through. Now, I use a good finger of reuzel pink in my hair, use a blow dryer to soften /spread it through. After this I put some good old brylcreen on top and comb through and it makes the hair manageable, shiny easy to comb and holds a style i.e. a pompadour/DA or whatever and it washes out with no problem. For me I have finally found the holy grail of pomades. Let me know what you think.
