Hair Wax [caption id="attachment_15692" align="aligncenter" width="438"] (Credit: tokkongstore)[/caption] Hair wax is one of the most common hair styling products used by men. It offers enough holding power for medium and short hairstyles for men, without the greasiness of pomade or flakiness of gel. Hair wax also allows you to restyle your hair throughout the day with ease. However, it lacks holding power for long hair or more extreme hairstyles. Thus, it is most suitable if you have short to medium hair. For those with oily hair, hair wax can be perfect as most give a matte finish with little shine. How to use: Hair wax works best on dry hair. If you want extra volume, you can blowdry your hair before applying the wax. Take a small amount of wax (size of a coin), place it on your palm and rub your hands to spread the wax evenly and warm it up. Then, rub the product thoroughly through your hair (from the tips down to the roots) and style your hair using your fingers.
