Here we go through all the uses and benefits of each of these mystical styling products so that you can keep your hair looking barbershop fresh every day of the week.
What is pomade?
Pomades typically come in two versions: water-based pomade and oil-based pomade. As the name suggests, each of these variants’ ingredients are either water-soluble or not. Although there are pomades to suit every hair type and texture, many people with oily hair find that oil-based pomades may be too greasy
Benefits of pomade
Pomade is typically applied to wet or damp hair to ensure the product is smoothly spread through your hair and doesn’t clump. If you’re going for a pompadour, ducktail, or slicked-back style, pomade is an excellent choice, as using it on wet hair can create a nice shine, even if you have naturally dry hair.
Besides its versatility, there are many benefits to using pomade, including:
What is wax?
Wax, although slightly similar to pomade in texture, typically offers much more hold. Unlike pomade, which stays pliable throughout the day, wax usually dries out after a few hours, which allows for a stronger hold and much more creativity when styling your hair. As the name suggests, hair wax is a group of beeswax or rosin-based products that give short to medium hair high hold.
Benefits of wax
Hair wax is typically applied to dry or damp hair and should be reapplied throughout the day to maintain its hold and shine. It is the perfect product in any short- or medium-length hair care routine and can even help tame flyaways and frizz in men with long hair.
Other benefits of hair wax include:
What is gel?
If you’re looking for rock-solid hold and the ultimate slick back, there’s nothing quite like good old-fashioned styling gel. Ridiculed after its obvious misuse in the early 2000s, gel has been making a major comeback as more and more A-list celebrities are sporting slick, smooth hairstyles at events and parties.
Unlike wax or pomade, most hair gels clump hair together and then dry out to become stiff, shiny, and unmoveable. Gel also allows for a lot more creativity and is perfect for spiking, slick backs, mohawks, and any other gravity-defying hairstyle that may suit your fancy.
Benefits of reuzel fiber gel
Unlike traditional Gels, our Fiber Gel incorporates fibers to create the same hold without being sticky, oily, or flaky. This allows for a firm pliable hold with relatively low shine.
