Before you start styling with wax, we have explained the explanation in a few simple steps:
- Start by applying a small amount of wax to your finger. Depending on the amount of hair you have, you may want to apply a pea-sized amount first. An excessive amount of hair wax makes your hair look greasy.
- Wax is a hard product, so you will have to heat it up. Divide the wax over the palms and rub them together until they are completely melted and feel spreadable.
- Apply the hair wax to your hair. Start by applying the wax to the back of your head and slowly brush the wax to the front of your hair.
- Start styling your hair!
Ultimately, there is no right or wrong way to style your hair with wax. However, it is important that you do not use too much of the product, this way you prevent your hair from looking (too) greasy.
Is wax or gel better for your hair?
There's quite a lot difference between pomade, clay, paste, wax, gel and more . When it comes to wax and gel, the answer to this question will vary from person to person. But if you ask us, the wax will really win over the gel . Especially if you choose a nourishing wax, there are many more benefits for your haircut. Your hair looks healthier, has more opportunity to grow and it becomes fuller. Gel, on the other hand, makes your hair drier than a wax.
Which is stronger, wax or gel?
If you a gel your haircut becomes harder than when you apply a wax. This has to do with the fact that a gel is usually produced on a water basis. Water dries up. So you have a dry and harder haircut.
