Gents, choosing the correct styling aids can be difficult. There are many different hair styling products on the market and it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. Pomades, creams, gels, clays, sprays, or powders. The list goes on.

We get it. It can be very overwhelming. Afterall, there are many factors involved for men such as hair type, hair texture, hair density, hold, and shine levels.

When choosing a salon-quality styling product, men's hair type is one of the most important factors to consider. A good styling product should be tailored to the specific needs of your particular hair type, as different hair types respond differently to various products. Men who have straight hair may need styling products that create volume while those with curly hair may desire products that deliver a lighter hold and pliability due to the natural volume the curly hair posseses.

Hair texture is also important when choosing a hair styling product. Different textures of hair have different properties, which in turn affect how well a given product will work. For example, those men with coarse hair may find that they need more moisture and conditioning in their products, whereas those with fine hair may be better off using a product that provides hold and volume.

Hair density is the number of hairs per square inch of the scalp. Men who have highly dense hair have more hair per square inch than those with less dense hair. An understanding of density is important as men with less dense or thinning hair will need styling products that create body and volume. Men with less dense hair or hair that is thinning should steer clear of products that add unnecessary weight such as an oil-based product.

To help you choose the best product for your hair type, hair texture, and hair density, Speakeasy Brand has created tools such as a hair questionnaire, hold and shine level guide as well as this handy styling aid chart to help you meet your hair styling goals while choosing the correct styling products.
