Take Proper Care Of Your Hair
Men’s hairstyles continually evolve with new trends, and with each trend comes a slew of new hair products. Just like the shoes and clothes you wear, the way you style your hair says a lot about your sense of fashion and personality. But before you decide on your next hair-spiration, you should know what these hair products can do for you.
These products each form distinct textures and styles for various hair types, which might be overwhelming if you don’t know exactly what you need. That’s why we’re here to help you get your hair looking as good as you’ve always wanted with this simple guide to wax, clay, pomade, gel, and cream.
Let’s start off with wax. This versatile product can help you achieve great hairstyles, from relaxed bed-head to more controlled looks. Good for short to mid-length hair, wax can deliver long-holding style, without adding grease or looking shiny. As your day progresses, hair wax will allow you to reshape and restyle accordingly, without getting your hands sticky.
Wax’s hardcore cousins, putties and clay, can be used in much the same way as any strong-holding matte product. These are great for accomplishing the messiest-looking hairdos with pretty much any hair type, and can even help add thickness to naturally thin manes.
A clever blend of wax and oil, a good pomade will help you achieve the classic look made popular by Leonardo DiCaprio and “Mad Men’s” Don Draper.
When choosing a pomade, look for one that’s water-based so it’s easy to wash out.
For the most natural look, a quality cream will simply add a touch of shine and lustre for a healthy-looking head of hair.
Perfect for wavy, curly, and longer locks, cream is a great grooming product that can help eradicate frizziness when used on wet hair.
Compared to stiff wax or heavy gel, creams offer a light texture, which can also help soften coarse hair. For inspiration, you can look to Brad Pitt in “The Counselor” or “World War Z.”
