Some bet on wax and others can not do without their pomade, every man will find pros and cons for each of the styling products.
But then, which styling product to choose?
Application, fixing and rendering, we tell you all about three styling products: clay, wax and pomade.
Clay to give volume to your hair:
You may be familiar with clay in the form of a mask, but it can also be found in a styling product.
So don’t think your hair is going to get covered in clay! Styling products made from clay remain invisible.
But what we appreciate about clay is that it adds volume to any hairstyle.
It is easy to apply and allows you to work the hairstyle strand by strand.
Also, a small amount of product is enough to style your hair.
Clay applied to damp hair will give a wet effect and for a matte effect it will suffice to apply it to dry hair.
Using the hair dryer will give volume to your hairstyle in a few seconds.
The benefits of clay:
- clay does not stick
- matte or wet effect
- ideal for giving volume to the hairstyle
- absorbs excess sebum and impurities

Wax, the star styling product among hairdressers:
Many hairdressers use wax to finish their clients’ hairstyles and for good reason, it offers many advantages, starting with the fact that it is very easy to apply.
If you have short hair, you can easily discipline a few strands with a styling wax. It will add texture and style to thick and medium hair.
Unlike gel, wax does not give a cardboard effect but offers excellent hold and a nice shiny finish.
To apply, take a small amount of pomade with fingertips, rub into hands and work through hair.
Wax can be applied to damp hair, in which case it should be dried naturally. When applied to dry hair, it helps define the cut better.
Choose your wax based on the desired shine and hold.
However, the wax is not suitable for fine, straight, rebellious and lifeless hair that can weigh it down. In this case, it is better to opt for a styling spray.
Benefits of wax:
- ideal for defining a cut
- excellent grip without cardboard effect
- easy to apply
- suitable for medium and thick hair

Pomade for vintage effect:
Pomade is reserved for men who want to impress with their hairstyle. With its wet effect, the pomade is the perfect styling product for combed and sophisticated hairstyles.
The styling pomade allows for a smooth, neat and shiny finish, without stiffening or stiffening the hair like gel.
You can have slicked back hairstyles, slicked back hairstyles and Mad Men Harvard cuts, or even pompadour with volume on top like Elvis Presley. Be careful with the pomade, the haircut must be worked with a comb at the risk of giving a greasy effect!
Originally, the first styling pomades were made from fats and sometimes even petroleum. Therefore, they were very difficult to remove, sometimes requiring several shampoos.
Today’s styling pomades are essentially water-based to remove in the first wash.
However, some pomades contain wax for a more stringy texture.
The benefits of styling pomade:
- glossy or satin effect
- perfect for sophisticated comb hairstyles
- no cardboard effect
- smooth finish
- suitable for all hair types

As you may have understood, the choice of your styling product is not the result of chance.
Depending on the desired finish and hair type, the styling product will make all the difference!
