I have used the other popular pomades but recently switched to Reuzel Blue as it holds really well and my hair is more of a pompadour, with high and tight sides. The can itself beats the plastic ones that are more common too. I know the can is not the hair pomade but it certainly is cool looking and feeling and I leave the can on our bathroom sink as it just looks so great. I now subscribe and will be getting it delivered regularly. Thank you!! I believe Johnny Burnette, Gene Vincent and Carl Perkins would use Reuzel Blue.
