Hair Men: How to Choose the Product to Model

Currently it is a bit rare for a man that does not use “absolutely nothing” to model the hairstyle, because the hair cuts modern always has a design that requires something to keep it in place, that is where we come in products such as gel, pomades, waxes, mousses and even sprays fasteners.

Hair Men How to Choose the Product to Model

So the reader enters with the greatest good will in a store of cosmetic products or visiting one of the many e-commerces focused to male beauty and if faced with all this apparatus aimed simply to leave their hair strands in place. Believe me, everyone gets lost, at least in the beginning.

As I’m already in this for almost a decade, I have been through all the boredom and disorientation as possible, today I believe that I got the knack and I can get by following the following guidelines:

1 – Know what is the desired effect

You want a hairstyle with spikes or something classic? Messy or tidy? To know what is the look you want to achieve will trace half of the way to find the ideal product. In fact, at the time of cutting is also worth to ask the barber what it indicates, is usually a product that costs a kidney and that may not fit in your budget, but will give you a clue of what to start looking.

2 – Look in specialized places

You will hardly find a good product in the drugstore around the corner. Shops specialized in cosmetics and product sites for grooming are the locations where the probability of finding something of quality and efficiency is high.

3 – Choose by fixing

The same type of product can have different degrees of fixation, as is the case of polishes and waxes, since the gel is more used to keep the wires under control, the mousse gives it volume, and the spray almost leaves the hairstyle indestructible, but little natural. Before you buy you need to know which of these products will be able to keep your hair the way you want, to have a notion, check the specifications on the packaging.

4 – Matte X glossy

The product can be matte (better known as opaque or bright, but you can’t say that one is better or worse, there are waxes matte that are very artificial taking too much the brightness of the hair and other that give a look completely natural. The same goes for products with brightness: the exaggerated can make it appear that the wires are slimy bastards, but others give it a look very healthy and beautiful. How to know which to use? Two options: test it for yourself, or find some review on the internet that show the result.

5 – Compare quantity X price

The price may be a tiebreaker, however many of the products are only cheaper on the label, but the comparison of amount can show that there are a good deal. There are also those that are abundant, but it required a great amount in the application, making the product last little bit, which unfortunately only note on the day-to-day.

6 – Practicality of the application

Can be a decisive factor for the choice, oddly enough. It is a pomade, wax or gel, a lot of people discourage if the application takes too long, if the hairstyle needs a lot of work to happen or if the application calls for some special care, such as dryer, or the aid of a brush. In the majority of cases the method of use comes specified on the packaging, take a look at before.

7 – Smell

Already stopped using an ointment because the odor gave me a headache and there are those who give up because he feels that the product of grooming can overlap with the perfume applied on the body. Check the smell before you buy, feel the hype, think twice.

Hint: if there is the possibility to test, dissolve a little of the product in hand and wait for 5 minutes, usually much of the smell does not lingers.

8 – Combine, if necessary

If you have little hair, and the wires are thin, you can combine a mousse with a fixative if you like. Hairstyles that fall apart easy can be tamed with the spray, but not modeled, but to create the perfect design before, it may be necessary for an ointment. Join products is more common than you might think, just take into consideration if you are going to have the patience to do this always, it should also be noted if the products will not harm your hair, causing problems, falling, dandruff or scalp irritation.

9 – Try

Is this the same, not always you will find the ideal product right away, then you’ll have to experiment a lot before you elect your fastener perfect. Get ready to transform your head into a testing laboratory, and be ready for some disappointments.

10 – Search before you buy

The insternet is full of information about products for styling hair male, the manufacturers web site may have valuable information of composition, application and duration, as well as user reviews and ratings of blogs specialist can help you choose the ideal product.

The research will also help you to know new products or discover changes in the formulations used previously.

…….

Editor’s note:

These are the criteria and the attitudes that I take before choosing a new product. Already changed several times due to changes in the formula, change in hairstyle will change the effect given by a wax/pomade, or simply dissatisfaction with the results. I also receive a lot of thing to test that made me see how there are products that may not please some but they fall like a glove to the other, or how we can find similar results with prices completely different.
