Men's haircare: the ultimate guide to choosing your styling product

If you thought women were the only ones who can use lots of different hair styling products, think again! Men also have a wide array of options, but it's important to understand the differences in order to choose the right ones.

Blow-dry cream

If you have shoulder-length or long hair, then chances are you use a hair dryer pretty often. Apply blow-dry cream like Nutrifier Cream by L'Oréal Professionnel to protect your locks from heat and to make them soft and shiny. If you start using the cream on a regular basis, everyone – women included – will become envious of your man bun.

Wax and paste

Wax is best to use in short hair. It's slightly shiny and malleable so you can readjust your hairstyle throughout the day. Paste has similar properties to wax, but it's thicker and will give your hair a matte finish. We recommend using Stiff Pommade by Tecni.Art from L'Oréal Professionnel when you want to create a sculpted, Don Draper-esque hairstyle that will stay in place all day long.

Gel

Gel has a liquid texture and can often look shiny – even wet – depending on the product you use. It has great holding power and is able to tame hair that's rebellious. If you use Fix Max by Tecni.Art from L'Oréal Professionnel, you can be certain that your style will not budge, no matter what the weather is like outside!

Mousse

Many types of mousse exist, and they each do something different for your hair. Volume Lift by Tecni.Art from L'Oréal Professionnel, for example, can add body to fine or flat hair. Volume Riche by Tecni.Art can be used in curly or wavy hair after a shower to add softness and a bit of volume, without weighing your hair down.

Hairspray

One spritz of hairspray, like Natural Touch by Tecni.Art is all you need to add extra hold to any hairstyle. Just make sure to use it on dry hair!
