How to use hair wax: A tutorial
Want to brush up on your product knowledge or need a crash course in styling? Our five-step guide below will answer all your how-to hair wax questions…
Use on wet or dry hair.
Use it with damp, (perferably towel-dried) hair to create a soft shape before drying or as a finishing product to style dry locks.
Use a small amount of product.
About the size of a 10p coin should be enough to work with, even if you’ve got shoulder length hair or longer.
Warm up the wax.
The friction from doing this will create heat, melting the product slightly and making it easier to work with.
Style up your strands.
Apply small amounts of hair wax at a time to the ends of your hair with your fingertips, twisting as needed for definition.
As hair wax doesn’t make your hair hard or stiff, you can actually mold and restyle your look throughout the day.
