care for your hair the right way with the right products
Celebs have the best hair but that’s because they have the best people using the best products to style their hair. It’s really not as hard as it looks if you have the right tools at your disposal. There are many types of hair that require different types of products. For me, I need to use products that can manage my thick, very straight hair. These are the products that work for me, depending on what I’m styling my hair for.
American Crew Fiber
The American Crew Fiber is my go-to hair product when I’m just looking for something to quickly style my hair. Fiber is a very thick, clay-like product that will give you a good amount of control over the shape of your hair and leave it with a nice matte finish that will look natural instead of glossy. Its high hold will let you shape it almost anyway you’d like. Just grab a dime-sized amount on the tip of your finger (two if you have thick hair), rub your palms together so that it distributes on your hands and just run your fingers through your hair. Just make sure to get a good amount evenly distributed, especially in the roots. I recommend getting all American Crew products on Amazon because they have them for MUCH lower of a price than retail stores. – Get it here.
American Crew Forming Cream
I use the Forming Cream when I want a cleaner, more professional hairstyle. The texture is pretty much a thick cream (that’s what she said), that will give you more power over the shape of your hair with a medium hold. You really only need a small amount on the tip of your finger, again rub it in your palms and evenly disperse it in your hair while being sure to get the roots to hold up the rest of your hair. It’ll also leave you with a casual, natural look. – Get it here.
American Crew Pomade
American Crew Pomade is great if you’re going to a formal event or if you just want to look sharp at the office. It’ll leave your hair looking shiny and clean. If you have thicker hair then pomade will be a bit challenging to use. I recommend styling your hair with another product and finishing it off with the pomade because if you only use a high amount of pomade, it’ll make your hair look too waxy and oily. It’ll also wash out easily with shampoo. – Get it here.
Pacinos Créme | Sculting Wax Cream
Similar to American Crew’s Forming Cream, Créme by Pacinos is another classy way to go. It’s lighter than the Forming Cream and has a pleasant smell to it. It’ll leave your hair with a nice shimmer and dry with a medium amount of hold while also conditioning it. Great for a casual hairstyle but can also be used for more formal looks as well. For use with straight, wavy and curly hair. I warn you, Pacinos hair products are a bit on the pricier side. – Get it here.
Pacionos 2-N-1 Shampoo and Conditioner
Pacinos Shampoo and Conditioner combo is in my everyday shower kit. It’ll clean, condition and moisturize those luscious locks of yours perfectly. It leaves your hair feeling very fresh and leaves it with a nice minty coolness thanks to the tea tree. This would be a welcome addition to any guy’s grooming kit. Unlike the cream, this is on the inexpensive side. – Get it here.
Suavecito Original Hold Pomade
I accidentally came into possession of Suavecito’s pomade thanks to an error in delivery to a barber shop, but it turned me on to the brand. They make several different types of pomades but the original is the most popular. I recommend Suavecito Original Hold Pomade if you’re trying to go for the clean-cut greaser look. It’ll leave your hair shiny with a medium hold. It washes out with water and doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals either. – Get it here.
Wahl Stainless Steel Grooming Kit
Every time someone asks if I got a haircut they are surprised to know that I actually just keep the edges and shape of my hair groomed myself. I bought my Wahl Grooming Kit a few years ago and couldn’t be happier. It comes with a precision trimmer, detail shaver, and nose/ear trimmer. It’ll give your edges and sideburns a clean and groomed look. It also only takes 1 hour to charge for a full 4 hours of use. Take care of your edges guys, it’ll make a big difference in your appearance. – Get it here.
Palmer’s Coconut Oil
Don’t laugh at me. I once showered at a friend’s house and they had coconut oil, so I thought to myself, “What’s that for?”. After doing some research I learned that you can put a small amount of coconut oil on your hair (or skin) to leave it feeling fresh, clean and incredibly soft! I don’t use it all the time but whenever I plan on not doing my hair or just wearing a hat, I use it to keep my hair moisturized and soft. It’ll also make your hair a lot healthier! The best part is that it’s cheap and you can pretty much find it anywhere. Give it a try. I said don’t laugh! – Get it here.
Any of these products would be a welcome addition to your daily routine. The hair on your head is one of the most important features that contributes to looking good, so treat it right. Do you have any other hair care products that you recommend? Let us know in the comments!
