5 Hair Products Every Man Should Own, Anchorage, Alaska

The right hairstyle can boost a person's confidence, but a lasting finish requires the right tools. Hair products can give you the shine, texture, and volume to turn every day into a good hair day. Add these products to your hair care arsenal to make the most out of your cut.

5 Must-Have Men's Hair Products

1. Smoothing Oil

Smoothing oil helps seal hair cuticles for a shiny and smooth finish, rescuing hair that’s dry, frizzy, or damaged. It also provides hydration for healthier locks in the long run. Apply to damp or dry hair before styling, using only a small amount to avoid a greasy look.

2.  Pomade

hairstyleIf you have a short men's hairstyle, pomade can help you create a slick-backed style with a high-shine finish and medium hold. 

Rub it between your hands to warm it up and work from the back to the front before combing through. To avoid product buildup, opt for a water-based product.

3. Texture Powder

Like a dry shampoo, texture powder absorbs oil, allowing you to go longer between washes, and creates volume where you need it. Apply it to dry roots and work it in before any other finishing touches.

Some powders combine texture powder and pomade to create a texturizing pomade that reduces styling time if you use both products.

4. Sea Salt Spray

Sea salt spray soaks up excess oil while creating texture, and can be used to bring life to medium to long hairstyles. Apply it to towel-dried or dry locks and work it in with your fingers. Let it air dry for the best look.

5. Hair Spray

Once you've sculpted and dried your hair, it's time to fix it in place. Light-hold hairsprays help maintain the shape of your styling without weighing down your hair. They also allow for slight movement and flexibility, creating a natural appearance.
