What Is A Hair Clay:

Men’s Hair Clay’s are styling products that have a dense texture, they are designed to have a matte finish and normally boast a strong hold.

What Is Hair Clay Used For?

Hair Clay is used to style hair. Clay adds a strong hold with a low shine finish which makes it perfect for short to medium length hair.

Clay is a versatile product that can tackle a really broad range of styles, but it performs best in more modern styles. Check out a style guide here for some haircut inspiration.

How To Apply Hair Clay:

Using a hair clay is relatively simple, but there are a few key points to get right for the best result.

Firstly, take a thumbnail sized scoop out of Clay. Next thoroughly spread it through your hands until the product looks like it has virtually disappeared – this is important to ensure you won’t get clumps in your hair.

Next, spread your hands through your hair, evenly applying the product and ensuring it spreads right down to the roots.

Finally, style as desired. Add texture with your finger tips or using a wide tooth comb.

Hair Clay Or Wax?

Wax is a general term used to describe wax based products. These are generally really strong with a high shine finish like, Monster Hold.

Nearly all Clay’s on the market use some wax based products, which is how they get the strong hold.

If you want a high hold, high shine look, try a wax like Monster Hold. But if you want a low shine result, try Clay.

How To Remove Hair Clay:

Since a lot of Hair Clays contain wax ingredients, the products tend to have a reputation of being hard to wash out – but it can be done!
