Are you sick of the crunchy, flaky feel you get when you apply hair gel? You can’t shake your head hard enough to make your hair move an inch, no matter how many times you shake it. This doesn’t make your hair look natural. You want your hair to stay in place, but also smell good and be soft. There is a way. All you have to do is swap your hair gel for pomade in the bathroom. Although we’ve looked at the effects of shampoos on hair, it is important to know what hairstyles you should use. For natural, stylish hair, it’s time to ditch the gel-and-spray and use pomade.
WHAT EXACTLY IS THE POMADE?
Pomade is a hairstyling product that helps to maintain your hair’s natural softness and shine. Pomade can be used in a variety of styles and made from different substances. Be aware that pomade is used as a generic term for many hair products. Before you place your order, make sure you understand what you are getting.
POMADE VS GEL
Hair gel is a popular hairstyle product for teenagers and children. Hair gel is easy to use, affordable, and doesn’t fray if you run around the playground. Hair gel can also harden, become crispy, and cause flakiness when touched. Gel is great for those with spiky or mohawk hairstyles. Pomades are best for all other hairstyles. Pomades have a less strong hold, but you will be able to style your hair as often as you like. There is also no flakiness. Pomades will give your hair a shiny, natural look, especially if you have side hairs, pompadours, or any other hairstyle that doesn’t require many hairs to stand straight up.
WHY SHOULD YOU SWITCH TO IT?
You should make your hair look natural. This means that you should not freeze any hairs, but let your natural flow take over. Plus, no flakiness. Pomades are a good alternative to hair gels. Gels contain many chemicals, which is why you should consider switching. These chemicals make hair gels more brittle and dry quicker. Organic pomades, such as our Brooklyn Grooming Vegan Polish, are healthier and better for hair. They also make hair look natural. You can also feel good about the fact that all of the products you put on your hair are eco-friendly.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM A POMADE?
Now that you have decided to switch to pomades, you must find out what you should look for in a pomade. These are the two most important things to consider when making a decision.
- THE RIGHT HAIR TYPE. Are you looking for no shine or shine? Do you prefer loose or tight hold? Do you prefer dry hair or greasy hair? All of these options are important when choosing the right pomade, regardless of whether you realize it. An oil-based pomade will give you a shiny, silkier style. Your hair will look shiny and wet all day thanks to the petroleum jelly in it. A water-based pomade will work best if you need something that is quick drying. Water-based pomades have a slightly stronger hold, but it can be more difficult to style your hair throughout the day. Vegetable wax and butter are a good combination to make a great all-purpose pomade. This will condition your hair while keeping it in place.
- A POMADE MADE WITH NATURAL INGREDIENTS IS THE BEST. There are many hair styling products available, but the best ones are made with natural ingredients. These pomades allow hair to flow naturally and keep the amount of chemicals on your skin to a minimum. Pomade application is easy. To get the best out of pomade, it is important to know how to use it properly.
3 SIMPLE STEPS TO USE POMADE
1. DRY HAIR. BUT NOT TOTALLY.
After you’ve finished showering, take a towel and run it through your hair until it is just damp. The pomade will then activate fully.
2. TAKE A COINSIZED POMADE.
After your hair is done, apply a coin-sized amount of pomade to your finger. Then, rub the pomade between your fingers until it is evenly distributed.
3. REMEMBER YOUR ROOTS.
Apply the pomade to your roots and style your hair as you like. You can always wash your hands and try again if something doesn’t work.
Now that you have all the information you need about pomades, you can get rid of those hair gels. This will maximize style, function and be eco-friendly.
