Hair Dough Matte

Strong yet Pliable Hold

Hair Dough Styling Clay For Men offers all-day-long hold, making the product excellent for people living an active lifestyle.

The product works seamlessly with towel-dried or regular dry hair to deliver that strong hold that lasts no matter the circumstances.

The wax will let you style straight, wavy, and/or curly hair equally effortlessly. The formula excels at minimizing frizz and keeping your hair moisturized through the entire day.

Other than all hair types, the product can be used on facial hair too.

The company's formula, with its refreshing lemon scent, makes sure your hair just doesn't look but smells good too. It delivers that neat matte look without leaving any residue. In other words, the product is shine-free. At the same time, the formula works wonders plumping up hair, allowing for a fuller look.

You'll have no issues washing the product away under tap water. You might, however, face some issues trying to spread the wax through hair. It just isn't thick enough for that.

On the bright side, the product doesn't incorporate any harmful chemicals/ingredients, which is a rare treat these days.

All in all, this professional clay for men offers that strong yet pliable/flexible hold you need to make sure your hair looks the way you want, all while instantly adding more texture and thickness to your hair.

Smooth Viking Beard Care Medium Hold & Minimal Shine

Natural Tousled Look

Smooth Viking Hair Styling Fiber for Men doesn't discriminate. The product works with thin hair, thick hair, long hair, short hair, regular hair, facial hair, etc. At the same time, the formula was put together with short hair in mind first and foremost. Whether you want that just-out-of-bed tousled look or would rather add some thickness to your shorter hairstyle, this is the product to go for.

The wax's fibrous texture presents an excellent alternative to gels and different styling creams. It offers that medium hold with a matte finish and minimal shine that looks natural but presentable at the same time.

The product rich formula incorporates regular water, polyquaternium-69, Cetearyl alcohol, PEG-8 beeswax, glycerin, lanolin wax, ethylhexyl stearate, hydrogenated castor oil, fragrance (parfum), carbomer, rosehip extract, coconut extract, chamomile extract, and green tea leaf extract. All these elements allow the wax to thicken, texture, and increase fullness in thinning hair.

We really dig the subtle woodsy scent that adds masculinity points to your overall presence. We don't dig the product's consistency though. For our taste, it is definitely too sticky.

Apart from that, Smooth Viking Hair Styling Fiber for Men is there to give you those subtle hairstyle changes without any residue. It can be used on dry or even slightly damp hair to achieve just about whatever style you decide to go with.

TIGI Bed Head Matte Separation

Texture and Definition

TIGI Bed Head is perfect for those defined looks that need more hold and texture. The product's formula adopts water, beeswax, cera carnauba wax, castor oil, propylene glycol, bisdiglyceryl polyacyladipate2, petorlatum, cetearyl alcohol, vp/va copolymer, ozokerite, and diethylhexyl maleate.

Other than the standard water part, the first two are the biggest contributors here. The beeswax adds structure and fullness to fibers, all while creating that strong hold and massive texture without unnecessary artificial shine. The cera carnauba ingredient is a medium-weight wax that makes sure the hold stays strong for long periods and offers excellent style flexibility.

At the same time, these elements and the aforementioned polymers provide the necessary separation to keep your hair nice and healthy. The polymers also provide humidity resistance and enhanced definition.

The matte finish will make your hair look refined but natural at the same time. As far as we can tell, the product's only downside is that it can be difficult to take off.

Setting that aside, TIGI Bed Head is excellent for precision hold. It is able to balance moisture and humidity, all while adding superb texture and definition without flaking.

Suavecito Pomade

Achieve any Hairstyle

Suavecito Pomade is there for pompadours, slick backs, and side parts. At the same time, the product will let you achieve just about any hairstyle. The formula is similar to the company's original Pomade product but, this time, the wax has more muscle behind it.

The solution's strong hold grips hair just like regular wax but washes out way easier compared to that regular wax. Its somewhat creamy consistency lets you comb any hair with ease, all while making sure the grip is strong enough for maximum styling flexibility.

As far as we're concerned, the product's moderate shine and slightly masculine but mostly unisex, light, and fresh scent are equally suitable for men and women. Some might find the scent too strong but that's where it is all about taste and preference, so we will refrain from making any comments.

We will, however, comment on the product's formula that, in addition to the usual culprits, includes DMDM hydantoin caramel, simethicone, and PVP (polyvinylpyrrolidone). These elements, among other things, make sure the product doesn't do any damage to the scalp.

Bottom line, Suavecito Pomade will prove a seamless addition to just about any grooming kit. Its woodsy floral-like smell will suit men and women alike. The product is firm but not crunchy at all.

Chronos And Creed Organic

Keeping Things Organic

Chronos And Creed Organic Hair Pomade is the most affordable product on this list. We don't have any major issues with the pomade except for the fact that the 2-ounce tin doesn't last very long.

The product's biggest strength is its completely organic formula. There are no polymers here. The formula contains nothing but butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), cocos nucifera (coconut oil), copernia ceriferna (carnauba wax), and pinus sylvestria (pine essential oil).

These four organically-sourced ingredients make your hair appear strong and thick as well as improve scalp health.

The coconut oil protects your hair from excess heat and other harmful environmental factors.

The shea butter contains the essential fats, vitamins, and nutrients that work wonders moisturizing the scalp, preventing dandruff and hair loss.

The carnauba wax lets your hair flex, all while maintaining its style.

There are no chemicals here, no GMOs, dyes, fillers or pesticides, making sure your hair stays safe and healthy.

All things considered, Chronos And Creed Organic Hair Pomade is the most environmentally conscious choice on this list. The light pine scent is subtle but pleasant. The product's medium-to-strong hold is flexible enough for various hairstyles. The high shine is very much noticeable but, at the same time, not overwhelming.

What Is Hair Wax for Men?

Gone are the days when men could afford to look scruffy and barely presentable. Modern issues demand modern solutions. You cannot command respect and exude confidence with awful bed hair. You can, however, totally rock that disheveled-but-dapper look that imitates bed hair but cuts out the bad parts.

There are many different hairstyles that you might be able to sport. It all depends on your hair type, facial features, and other details. It also depends on the tools at hand. You won't be able to do much without hair wax for men, for instance.

These products will let you style straight, wavy, and/or curly hair. The right waxes make sure to minimize frizz and keep your hair moisturized through the day. The difference between these products usually boils down to the formula behind them. The formula will determine the scent, hold strength, and shine presence.

Keep in mind the hairstyle(s) you're looking to incorporate/replicate and these little details and you should be able to figure out the right wax for your needs and preferences.

Facial hair is in the picture as well? Then your grooming kit won't be complete without beard comb(s) and beard oil(s).
