Frequently Asked Questions

I’m having trouble getting the bottle pump to pop up. What should I do?

The Blackwood For Men pump should pop up after a slight counter-clockwise twist. If you have any trouble, grab the bottom part of the pump and tighten it clockwise (to the right) as much as possible, then turn the top part counter-clockwise (to the left). It should then pop up. For a visual aid, check out this quick video. Also note, our Hair Hydrator has a small plastic lock that must be turned to the side to work properly. If you still have difficulty after trying these fixes, contact our Customer Service Department at (562) 267-9009 between 9am-4pm, PDT/PST. Or email us anytime at
