Pomade, hair wax, clay, gel? How to Style Your Hair? Which Hair Product is Right For You?

Which Hair Product is Right For Me?

So you’re sitting there wondering, “What do I want from a hair product, and which one is right for me?” Maybe you’re here for no reason at all and stumbled upon us by chance. Well, hello there!

However you found this, continue reading and consider what sort of hair you have and what style you want to attain. In this tutorial, we’ll go through the many types of hair products available and which ones will work best for you and your hair.

So, Go with Teeanime for all your doubts!


Gels purchased from a supermarket, corner store, or salon are extremely damaging to your hair. The major chemicals work together to remove the product’s moisture from your hair, leaving it crunchy and stiff. This is, of course, the purpose of employing these hair products. The product will’set,’ giving you the desired style.

Pomades work in the same way. Don’t get it twisted, the process is the same as with a gel in the end; the moisture from the product will evaporate, leaving the nice material to hold your hair in place. However, a decent pomade will accomplish this without the use of alcohol. Alcohol is damaging to your hair and skin. That is not something you want on you. It dries out your hair. That’s not good. It dries and destroys your scalp’s skin, leaving behind unsightly flakes. That is both horrible and disgusting. Itching, discomfort, and pain are all possible side effects. That’s terrible. That is not what you desire.

Utilize a pomade from a respected hair care firm that knows what they’re doing. Ahem. These far superior products will not only produce better outcomes, but will also keep you healthy. You’ve earned it. Everyone is entitled to it.

Use high-quality hair gel. If gel is your thing, check out Firme Hold Styling Gel, our alcohol-free version of hair gel.


Excellent pomade. It works on hair. Simple, effective, no gimmicks. Pomade has been popular for a long time. All have hold, smell great, and last all day.

Pomades and their offshoots are improving. Formulas are being developed and products are growing better at delivering outcomes and adding health benefits. They contain vitamins, essential oils, and other hair-healthy ingredients. In terms of health, we’re removing old-school substances that manufacturers didn’t realize were harmful. Cool, cheap pomade.

You’re doing something wrong if hair products cost more than your haircut. Best-in-class firms make inexpensive pomades. Ahem. It’s simple.


What will work best for you? All of these hair products will hold your hair to some extent, and using enough of any one type will get you close to the style you want. However, employing too much of the wrong product is not the best approach. It will also cost you more money in the long term. So, first, let’s define what these various sorts of pomade are and what they perform.


A water-based or water-soluble pomade is a hair product with a formula that includes water. Yes, but… The thing that makes it special, though, is that it makes a product that is easy to break down. This makes it easy to put on and easy to take off. You don’t need any special soaps or shampoos to get it out of your hair. The texture is creamy and smooth, so it’s easy to work into your hair. Back in the day, all grandfathers would have been very excited about these things.

It is beautiful how the product sets. We won’t go into all the details right now, but the water in the formula evaporates, leaving you with just the good stuff. That good stuff that’s left over keeps your hair in place and makes you look great. A good pomade that is made with water also gives a tight and strong hold. They work well on all kinds of hair, but especially on thick or curly hair that can be hard to style with other products.

We have two great examples of water-based products that are really great. First, we made our Original Hold Pomade, which works well for most hair types and styles. It works great with straight hair and can do just about anything you want. Use the very strong Firme Hold Pomade on thick or curly hair that is hard to tame. This stuff is strong enough to handle anything you throw at it.

Use water-based if you want a strong hold that lasts all day, doesn’t itch or flake, and comes off with just water. Styles for hair that is medium to hard to manage, like pompadours, slick backs, and side parts.


This is the hair wax pomade your grandfather wore and may be why you’re alive. It’s been around for a while and remains popular. Its unique grip and formula create a traditional aesthetic that many people seek. The wax is slippery, oily, and smooth when applied to hair. It doesn’t dry like a water-based hair and may be revised during the day. Greasers in the 1950s always carried a comb. Their hair was fixed. Cool. Currently.

For a traditional or throwback style, use an oil-based hair wax. With new formulae and varieties, today’s oil-based is better than yesterday’s.

Our Oil Based Pomade/Wax combines both. It mixes old-school flavor with a solution that won’t damage hair and scalp. Suavecito Oil Based Pomade is washable with mild shampoo. New or old oil-based pomades don’t offer this convenience.

Oil-based for pompadours, slick-blacks, and quiffs. Midday hair fixes with your favorite comb are charming. Looks and feels smooth. Knowledgable.


Suavecito loves to attempt fresh, fascinating concepts. When we find something that works, we share it with the world.

Hybrid pomade? We combined the best water-based and oil-based products into one unorthodox product. We designed something great for our Premium Blends range. It’s a water-and-oil-based pomade in one.

Why? Let’s imagine you like water but want to recomb all day or be more casual. Our combination washes out easily and holds well. You can also run your fingers through it.

Use hybrid pomade for casual looks (when you don’t want to look like you slaved over your hair that morning), lovely side-parts, and when you want to feel like there’s nothing in your hair. It’s light but not empty.


When considering the history of hair care products, these are a relatively new creation. They both prefer more natural-looking hairstyles. When utilizing these items, you won’t always be able to tell someone has it in their hair. And sometimes that’s the point. These products are not as diverse as the pomades listed above, but they are nonetheless significant in their own right. These hair clays and pastes are unique, defining or at least pushing forward modern pomades.


This pomade is for a specific hair. A hair clay mixture is usually stiff and thick, but breaks down with rubbing.

Clay gives a pomade volume. Clay expands when wet, giving it volume. It gives hair weight and shape differently than oil or water-based pomades.

Suavecito Firme Clay Pomade is an easy-to-use and easy-to-wash clay hair product. You don’t want hair products after a shower, right? Matte Clay gives volume to your hair, allowing you to create quiffs, side-parts, and tighter styles depending on your hair type.

Natural appearance. Unpolished. It works best on easier-to-manage hair unless you want a sloppy look (curly hair looks great when styled somewhat messy with this product).


This one comes in a variety of blends, but its major goal is styling without adding shine to your hair. That is very significant to some people and not so much to others. Looking at your hair dry and asking yourself if it looks good to you is an excellent method to make that distinction for yourself.

Matte pomades are more paste-like in texture. If you’re used to a more typical pomade, you’ll notice that the formula is a little dryer. These matte hair paste pomades have a medium hold and are ideal for a more relaxed or casual look. Most people who use a hair paste styling product, such as our Matte Pomade, appear to be attempting to produce a more modest look, as if they did not spend time putting their hair together in the morning.

A hair paste product will remain malleable throughout the day, allowing you to adjust it to your preference as needed. This trait gives you a more natural “nonchalant” appearance. And, like with any hair product, a little bit more will make the look tighter and more polished. You’ll just have to play around with it.

Use a paste to create a reworkable look throughout the day. There is little to no shine. Natural-looking, healthy hair with a medium weight hold.


Individual preference. 100%. However, there are a few things you should know about the items that provide one or the other.

Matte-focused products tend to have the medium-light volumizing hold that many folks seeking casual looks desire. This is not true of all matte items, but it is true of the vast majority of them. Clays and hybrid materials offer matte, dry, or neutral finishes.

Oil-based and, to a lesser extent, water-soluble solutions are often used to give your hair more gloss and a wetter appearance.

On average, a more shine-inducing product will have higher holding power, but this isn’t always the case.


To be honest, there isn’t a perfect response to this topic. But we’re getting close. Everyone is unique, and that is fine. What works for one person’s curly hair may not work for another’s. It occurs. So let’s speak about hair kinds, styles, and the products that go with them. Then we can give some advice on how to fine-tune that to a more precise degree..


Most of the looks you want will not require a strong holding product. In fact, depending on the thickness of your hair, using something hefty may do more harm than good. Assume you have straight short hair and want a simple side-part that is nearly casual. A very light application of any of the pomades indicated above will suffice. You don’t want to overdo it. Using too much when it isn’t necessary will merely weigh the hair down and make it appear a little odd.

It is always preferable to put in too little and work harder than to use too much right away. Keep it in mind!

Other styles, including as a high pompadour, slick back, and brushed business casual, are also possible with the majority of these goods. The more pomade you require, the higher the pomp. If you want to do anything more difficult, you’ll need something more powerful. A powerful water-based hold, such as the Firme Hold, will keep it in place. That’s what you’ll want.

Water-based pomades with light to medium holds, oil-based wax pomades of all types, clays and pastes work best in general.


Curly hair can be difficult to style. The hair is independent. Curly hair is magical. This hair type has two approaches. First, use a bulletproof pomade or wax. With time and patience, certainly. OK.

Use our Firme Hold Pomade to control curls. Perseverance, the appropriate product, and patience may tame curly hair. Be patient.

But wavy hair has another use. It needn’t be entirely tamed. Many styles accept the natural curl of the hair without hiding it. These styles don’t require a thick pomade.

Effortlessly disheveled curly hair looks wonderful. There’s a distinction between genuine bed head and 5-minute “bed head.” The harder one will produce greater daytime outcomes. Add Premium Blends Pomade and blow dry. If you can’t blow dry or don’t have a hair dryer, just make sure your hair is 75% dry before applying any product.

Curly hair is fantastic for experimenting with its natural look. It has its own mind, so go with the flow.

If you want a certain look, use a heavy product, but if you want something more generic, use something lighter. You have options either way.


Speak with your barber. They get to know your hair in a way that you will never be able to. They will be able to assist you with not only finding styles that fit your hair, but also the appropriate product kinds to help you attain that style. Ask them what they think and then try it.

Over time, your hair will start to remember things. You can teach your hair to do what you want. If you always comb your hair in the same direction, whether you use a product or not, the hair will start to lay that way. The more time you spend making your hair look the way you want, the easier it will be to do. This is a good thing to keep in mind if you have hair that is hard to tame. Even though it’s not perfect, it’s a good start.

Try new things without being afraid. A different way to style your hair, a new hair wax, clay, or pomade, or a new hairstyle. You can’t just pick the “best” pomade.
Blower dryers aren’t exclusively for ladies. They are, however, not required.

Look online for photos of men’s haircuts that work with your hair type and expand out from there. The beautiful thing about this world is that you can modify your appearance whenever you want, and you have access to brands that offer a wide choice of things to play with.

This wasn’t meant to have all the answers, but to give you a great place to start. We hope this has given you some ideas on how to start a new path toward looking and feeling better. Remember that this kind of thing should be fun, and you shouldn’t worry too much about your look as you try out different things. Everyone has days when their hair looks bad. It’s fine when it does. Just keep being yourself, and nothing will be able to stop you.

We hope you enjoyed reading this little guide and learned something new. Don’t be afraid to contact us if you have any questions about our products. We’d be happy to help. And don’t forget to ask your favorite barber for advice about how to style and care for your hair. There’s a reason they’re pros.
