Which hair products to use for men?
There are dozens of new hair products for men available because there are dozens of different types of men around. Choosing the perfect product depends a lot on the type of hair you have and the hairstyle you are seeking to create.
A salt spray is a really easy product for men to use to get a beachy, tousled, carefree style. Muk has the Beach Muk Salt Spray. Pure has a Sea Salt Spray which is water soluble, good for your scalp and protects your hair from harmful UV rays.
Hair wax, pomade, and hair gel are great styling products for men to use, especially if they have thick hair. Wax creates more of a matte look whereas gel has a strong hold. A pomade is an oilier product which leaves hair looking slick and shiny. The Uppercut Deluxe, the V76 and the Muk Pomade are all great products for men’s hair.
You will soon work out which product gives you the best look for the least amount of effort. Try some of the wax and gel products from the American Crew, Nak or Juuce range. If you want to try a clay in your hair, go for the D:FI matte clay.
How to use men's hair products?
How you use hair products depends very much on which products you are using and whether you want a shiny or matte finish. If you have curly hair and you’re looking for a medium hold product to calm your hair down or a high hold product to completely style your hair, the process will be slightly different. If your hair is straight, sometimes a smoothing serum like Juuce Botanic Oil Serum or the Hot Muk Smoothing Serum will be all that is needed.
Start by washing and moisturizing your hair. Paul Mitchell, Sexy Hair, Matrix and Redken have great shampoos and conditioners for men. Squeeze the water out (if your hair is long) or start with towel dried hair.
Then, use a curl wax, clay, cream, gel or spray to create the look you want. Some products require your hair to be dry before styling so be sure to read the instructions on the packaging.
It’s always best to start with a small amount of product and then add more if necessary.
What hair product to use for men’s long hair?
Dry shampoo is a really useful product for men with long hair. If you are not keen to wash, condition and style your hair every day, this styling product can be a saviour because it absorbs the natural oils that can make your hair look greasy and lank. Dry shampoo seems like a hair spray but it works differently. Dry shampoo emits a thin layer of product which dries on your hair so it is really important not to spray it all over your hair. Simply aim to cover the roots. Once the product has dried a little, ruffle your hair with your fingers and you will be ready to go. Try the Instant Rockstar Dirty Weekend dry shampoo or the Sexy Hair Laundry dry shampoo.
If you are out in the sun all day, you need to protect your hair so using a product like Juuce 20-in-one Miracle Spray is a good idea. It provides protection from UV rays, it prevents the frizz factor and it seals moisture into the ends of your hair, keeping it looking healthy all day.
