Deciding on what type of hair product to use will depend on a number of factors, but will ultimately come down to what you’re in the mood for.
Some people like to switch things up every day or every other day while others tend to use the same product and product type daily. When it comes to deciding on a hair product, there are three general things to consider: your hair type, the occasion, and personal preference.
The type of hair product you use will have a big impact on how effective it is depending on the type of hair you have. A person with thick hair, for example, will have a hard time maintaining their desired look throughout the day if they use a lightweight product such as a cream or paste.
However, these types of products may work well for someone who has thin hair as they’re usually geared towards people with thin hair types. Those of you who have thicker hair may find using a clay more productive and beneficial. Hair clays tend to have a medium to strong hold.
Just like anything, whether it be your outfit, hairstyle, etc., the type of hair product you use may give your hair the extra detail(s) it needs to be fitting for the occasion. On an everyday basis, many people would find a matte finish product desirable as they’re simple and helps you blend into the crowd. On a more dapper-like occasion, using a pomade will give your hair some shine and help you stand out a bit. Depending on the type of pomade you use, however, you can find some that will give you a more natural look while others will make your hair appear more greasy. It all depends on how you’re feeling and what you feel confident using in the end.
In the end, it all comes down to personal preference and what you enjoy using. Some people may use pomade every day and stick out in the crowd, and that’s not a bad thing at all! If you feel confident, then that’s all that matters. Experimenting with different types of products is also another key thing to remember. Even if you have thick hair, it doesn’t mean you have to shy away from using lightweight products. Using lightweight products may actually suit you better if you enjoy rocking a more relaxed and low-maintenance style.
Trying new things is the only way you’ll be able to discover what works best for you and I can say that from personal experience as I didn’t figure that out for a long time as I stuck with the same types of products for years. Up until I was 19, I was hooked on using strong hold products every day but decided to pick up BluMaan’s 5th Sample pomade product. I gave it a try and it worked wonders for my hair. While still maintaining a stronghold, I was able to attain a different look for once and have since begun switching things up every now and then.
