Developed to replace the wax that greasers would use in the SoCal rockabilly scene, water-based Layrite pomade holds like a wax, but washes out like a gel! What other pomades call extreme hold, we just call original. The same formula greasers have been trusting for 10 years. – Holds as strong as a wax- High shine for that polished look- Water-based formula washes right out just like a gel- No drying formula keeps hair soft with no flaking- Controls even the curliest and thickest hair out there- Keeps your hair in place and looking good all day How to use it: Because it is water-based, Layrite pomade is versatile – you control the strength of hold and sheen simply by drying your hair to the desired amount: – Dry your hair: Layrite Pomade is has the strongest hold when used on DRY HAIR.
