Crash Course for Men: How To Use Men’s Hair Products
If your current grooming regime consists of a three-in-one bottle, you likely have no idea what these new men’s grooming products do. Pomade? Wax? Beard oil? The men’s grooming industry has come a long way since hair gel and frosted tips and if you’re ready to look your absolute best, you need to know what these men’s grooming products are. Lucky for you, we have you covered!
Beard Oil For Keeping Your Skin and Beard Moisturized
Beard oil is a hydrating oil designed to keep your facial hair and the skin underneath it moisturized. This helps to keep it looking healthy and groomed, and most importantly, to eliminate flaky skin particles from taking over your straggly, rough beard. Apply twice a day – once in the morning and once at night for optimal results.
Beard and Hair Pomade Styles and Shapes
The easiest way to describe beard pomade is that it’s like hair gel, only it's more waxy for a natural look and strong hold. With a very small amount, you can use the wax to add shape, weight and hold to your hair, whether in your beard or men’s hairstyle. Quality men’s pomades are also formulated to add some moisturizing benefits to your beard as well. As such, it is a waxy balm that can make a huge statement with very little product needed.
To use hair pomade, you take a small amount and work it through your palms before lightly applying it to your beard or hair. This can be done any time you need to shape your hair, whether on your head or face, but as long as you opt for high-end beard pomade, you should only have to do it once as it should hold for the day.
Beard Balm is a Leave-In Conditioner That Softens and Styles your Beard
Beard balm is like the best of both worlds. It’s like a beard oil in the sense that it’s great for keeping your skin and facial hair moisturized and it’s like a pomade in the sense that it can add incredible shape and hold into your beard. However, beard balm has extra moisturizing elements and it isn’t as waxy as hair pomade. It’s much more like a leave in conditioner for your beard than it is a beard styling product.
It’s recommended that you use beard balms 2-3 times a day for maximum benefits. However, it’s imperative that you use a high-quality beard pomade made of natural products such as beeswax if you do not plan on rinsing it out before bed. Otherwise, if you use beard balms made of petroleum jelly and do not rinse it out before going to sleep, you risk damaging your facial hair, which can result in an unruly beard.
Hair Clay Shapes and Sculpts Men’s Hairstyles
Hair clay for men is like hair spray to women. It’s like the hair gel that was used during the era of frosted tips, only much softer and healthier for your hair. It offers the hold and healthy shine you want to pull off the dapper look, without the rock-hard feel and film that comes from other generic products. Our hair clay for men is also animal-friendly.
