There are more and more styling and finishing products on the market each week to cater to every hair styling need. We have tried to simplify them into six main categories but these are only ment as an aid to understanding there use they are gels, mousses, hair sprays, waxes, pomades and oils/drops.
As a general guide hair styling products go into wet hair to give hold and help retain style. Hair finishing products go onto dry hair after you have finished blow-drying or between shampoos to recreate your style daily. Some products can be used for both. We have listed the use (styling or finishing) next to each product type when you click on a selection below you will get more detail on each:
What's it for? Wax
creates natural texture by clumping strands of your hair together.
Best for shorter layered styles.
How's it used? Take
a small portion onto the end of your finger then work around your
palms in a washing type motion. Many waxes will go white or foam
slightly when you do this. Now work your hands through your hair
roughly to distribute. Finally, place your hair how you want it.
How does it feel in your hair?
"greasyish" but moveable without flopping.
Alternative ideas: Good
for spikes and defining shapes.
