Styling for men, let's just say that in recent years, styling products for men has grown enormously. At first there was mainly gel, you know those jars with bright colors in the supermarket and chemist. Nowadays you havepaste (hair paste), clay (clay), pomade (pomade)cream , hair wax and of course there is still gel . But what exactly is the difference between all these products and which one is best for you and your wishes. And have you ever considered the right styling products for your beautiful locks?
The properties of a hair clay are very interesting for men who are looking for hairstyles with a high hold and a matte finish. Hair clay is often stiffer and drier than wax. If you have thinner strands, clay is definitely recommended, as it creates volume and fuller strands. When hair clay is applied to towel-dried hair, it provides even more volume and fuller strands. If you then start working with the hair dryer, you can apply some clay or wax for the styling. Find all clay here.
Hair paste or hair paste is almost the same as wax, only the structure is slightly wetter and gives a paste less hold. This makes a paste ideal for you if you have thick and massive locks and still want to create a tousled look. The great thing about a paste is that you can edit and restyle all day long. A paste also does not dry like a gel or a water-based pomade. The variety in hair paste is huge, just like with hair wax. Some give a high hold and some a medium or low hold. The choice is also huge in terms of shine. A hair paste is very versatile and can be used for definition, accentuation and hold. Find allHairpaste here .
With a pomade or pomade (NL) you can create a smooth, sleek and shiny look in you. A pomade is a fairly wet product, only the creams are even wetter. Pomades are often used for classic looks, such as the 50s and 60s slick looks a la Elvis Presley. The hold can vary widely with pomades, but the gloss is usually high and therefore absolutely suitable for a polished look aka sleek suit. It ensures that your locks stay in shape all day long and does not harden your locks, provided you use the oil-based pomade. Pomades are a good alternative to gel, wax and hairspray. No mess, it won't stick to your hands and the main difference is that a pomade (oil base) never dries out. It instantly shapes your locks and you are ready to hit the road in no time.
An exception to this are the clay pomades, which is a hybrid product of a pomade and a clay. These often give a higher hold and a matt finish. Because the styling product pomade is slightly wetter, you can also use some pomades when working on wavy or curly locks. Find all pomade here.
Cream or also called cream is a broad category. Cream is the wettest styling product in between. Creams can have high and low hold, but hair creams usually have a low to medium hold. They are mainly intended for structure and control and they are less suitable for tight hairstyles. In terms of shine, a cream can have a high and low shine, but usually a hair cream does not provide a matte finish. If you want an out-of-bed look or messy creation, a hair cream is your best friend. This also applies if you want to make wavy or curly locks a bit more straight or want a little more control.
So if you don't want a sleek or modeled haircut and want to give your messy look a charismatic twist, then a hair cream is your styling product that you will bond with for years to come. This also applies when clays or waxes are too dry or powerful for your thick / unmanageable locks, then a real cream can offer a little more control and definition without too dry or high hold.

Hair wax is one of the most versatile styling products for men. Wax generally provides a fairly high hold and is therefore a popular choice in styling. The finish can be waxed per wax, with a matte finish as well as with a very glossy finish. A wax is usually a fairly dry / hard product that you use for structure, definition and hold. A hair clay is slightly drier than a hair wax and a paste is slightly wetter than a wax.
There are two types of waxes, a water-based wax and a petroleum or (oil) based wax, they are also available with a little bit of both. An oil-based hair wax gives a high hold but is slightly more difficult to wash out than a water-based product. These properties make a hair wax one of the most versatile styling products for men and can be used in both short and medium long locks. It is also suitable for different looks. Waxes are less suitable for long locks or a lot of slick (back) looks. Find all hair wax here.
Gel with all kinds of colors in large jars for a pittance in the local supermarket and drugstore is usually the first thing that comes to mind. However, hair gel has undergone a transformation, and hair gel is no longer supplied with the well-known white flakes as standard. That is past tense. A good hair gel, if used properly, finally no longer produces white flakes. Gel resembles a water-based pomade. Both are relatively wet products, but the gel is a bit wetter. Both also dry up, whereby a gel dries slightly harder. The hold of a gel is actually always low because the product is so wet and easily falls apart.
Because the styling product gel dries relatively quickly, you can sometimes style spiky hair and other hairstyles that need a little hold. The disadvantage of hair gel is that it is not a versatile product and is also a little natural product. It is a fairly chemically formulated product. It is advisable to wash gel from your strands every day, so that no residue remains in it for the next day, which does create white flakes. Little warm water and the gel is gone. Find all gel here.
