When it comes to styling and shaping men’s hair, pomades, clays and waxes are perfect for helping to sculpt and mold styles without adding a greasy texture. In other words, they allow for creativity and hold – something completely wearable – without an uncomfortable crispiness.
But if you’re in the market for a long-lasting hold, gels are a perfect option for keeping your style locked down from dusk until dawn. In addition to gels and other strong-hold products, styling creams are ideal for men who want a light, effortless look to their locks – and they help even the most coarse hair to appear silky smooth. And then there’s mousse. We know what you’re thinking: it’s for girls. Wrong, guys. In fact, surprisingly mousse can be a man’s best (hair) friend. The trick is in using it right (apply to damp hair and blow-dry it fully for texture and volume with zero crispiness). And thanks to its swelling properties, it’s the number one product for men with thinning hair, because it helps fine locks look fuller and thicker. Who knew, eh?
When it comes to men’s hair products, it’s important to find a perfect product that you’ll be able to use time and again for your specific hair needs – but that doesn’t mean one single product. You’ll likely need several, depending on the different styles you want to achieve, and you can cocktail them to create your ultimate hair hybrid.
So, whether you’re looking for advice on picking the best products for your hair type, tips on how to use them, or neat styling tricks, you’ll discover everything you need to nail better hair days here.
