What is this?
It might be......
El pelo de él se pone reseco. His hair gets real dry. (seco = dry.... reseco = real dry)

re in front of a word is to say it is really........ unless the word begins with re.

Less confusing.......

reloj - watch/clock
real - real
relato - story/tale

-----------------------------
bonito = pretty
rebonito = real pretty

feo = ugly
refeo = real ugly

loco = crazy
reloco = real crazy

Do you understand?
