Gel, pomade or paste: choose the right product for you

Having trouble finding the hair care product that will give you the results you want? Whether it's a gel, paste or a pomade, every product has its own specific attributes to provide you with the precise look you want!

Gel

Most men have used hair gel at least once. Because they're inexpensive, they're usually the first styling product a teenager will purchase. Use it if you have very thick or frizzy hair, as gel is extremely efficient at providing hold for the rest of the day. Avoid running your hands through your hair if you don't want to mess up your do. With its shiny texture, gel is the best option for anyone going for the retro Grease look.

We suggest: Dove Men+Care Fortifying Styling Gel, Garnier Fructis Invisible Extra Strong Gel

Paste

Paste is a good option if you want something a little more versatile when it comes to a haircare product. Men with short, long, thin, curly or straight locks will often rely on paste to style their hair. Before you apply the product, warm it up in your palms to make it more malleable. As it cools, it will fix your hair in place. You can expect a matte or slightly shiny effect, perfect for the man who wants the slicked back look that’s popular with hipsters.

We suggest: Old Spice Unruly Paste

Pomade

Pomade is favoured by men who want a hair style straight out of The Great Gatsby. With its high shine factor, pomade can create a very distinguished classy look. You can also use it on curly hair to redefine your locks without weighing them down. One of the best things about pomade is that it never cracks under your touch. So your hair will stay supple for natural-looking results. But make sure to use a water-based product instead of an oil-based one as the latter is harder to rinse out.

We suggest: AXE Clean-Cut Look Pomade, L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Special FX Remix Paste
