Wax, pomade or gel, what should you use?
So should you spike or slick back? Tousle it up or back comb? Whatever you choose, without outside help your hair would suffer a pitifully boring experience. That’s why there’s a throng of hair products out there to liven things up. But what’s a guy to choose? The choices are dizzying enough to make you want to just shave it all off or tie it up in a ponytail and forget about it! But it’s about time you figured which product you really need.
It’s the one workhorse you need in your arsenal to keep your hair in place. Apply to wet hair for shiny hold. Go straight or wavy depending on your mood. Just apply with a light hand; some gels tend to produce white flakes as they dry, so go easy. Another plus; it washes out without hectic scrubbing.
The new Johnnie in town, this super versatile hair product is good for all styles, from just-hopped-out-of-bed looks and spikes to textured and city slicker styles. Apply to dry or slightly damp locks after spreading evenly on your palms. More pliable than gel, so you can restyle as often as you like. The right product if you want to take your look from the boardroom to the bar.
If you want natural shine and control this is the product for you. Perfect for thick, coarse or curly hair because of strand moisturizing ingredients like Silk Amino Acids, Olive Oil and Chamomile. Use on dry or damp hair to give non-sticky, flexible hold and tame flyaways. Another plus: the lightweight formula washes out easily.
Call it what you want, Surf Spray, Beach Mist…whatever, but the effect is the same. It’ll recreate the effect of the sea breeze blowing through your locks. Random, tousled waves that make your hair look thicker. Steer clear though if you have dandruff. The product has real salt that can be dehydrating and dry out your scalp further.
Unfortunately most men shy away from mousses because of their girly association. The foamy product coats hair strands with polymer chemicals making it look thicker and fuller than it really is. Great if you have fine hair or need to cover a bald or thinning patch because some formulas have thickening agents like Rice Proteins.
So what’s it going to be?
