What is hair clay?
Similar to waxes, hair clays are great for adding texture and hold without the high shine finish. They are perfect for side partings and sculpted hairstyles, if you're looking to avoid the glossiness of a pomade. Men with oily hair will benefit from using hair clays since the formulation neutralises the natural oils produced by the follicles, helping to prevent scalp issues such as dandruff. The matte finish also allows for more versatile styling for a range of everyday styles.
How do you apply hair clay?
Hair clay should be applied to dry hair. For best results:
1. Prep the hair first by blowdrying it, to add volume
2. Warm the product between the palms of your hands, for easy distribution through your strands.
3. Style as desired.
What are the types of hair clays?
Bentonite Clay is the most popular type of hair clay used in men's hair styling, followed by Kaolin and Brazilian Clay. Bentonite Clay helps to remove toxins and dead skin cells, while strengthening the strands and preventing hair loss. Kaolin is known to calm and cleanse the scalp, while Brazilian Clay also works wonders on the body and face, removing impurities and delivering essential nutrients where needed to both skin and hair.
