Trying to find the right male hair care products is a daunting task nowadays. With new products launching every five minutes and names being written in all languages, it’s no wonder you can’t find anything! At Fabriah, we know the plight, so we’ve put together a little guide to help you distinguish between your products.
All Styling Products will fall into 2 categories: Fixatives and Pliable.
Fixatives are styling products that will dry hard and give limited re-working potential once dried. Examples of these products include styling gels and hairspray.

Unlike fixatives, pliable products with work to keep your hair flexible. As a result, pliable products allow hair to be reworked throughout the day as you need. Examples of pliable products are pomades and waxes.

Two of the most coveted male hair care products are wax and mousse. But what’s the difference?
Wax will not leave your hair hard or with a wet look and your hair can be restyled throughout the day. Rub a small amount of wax between fingers and palms of hands; this warms it up to make it more pliable for an even distribution. Run your palms through the parts of your hair you want styling to distribute, then use your fingers to manipulate your hair how you would like it. Wax is generally best when your hair is shorter but longer styles can use it to define sections.
On wet hair it will give a sleek, wet look. On dry hair it will shape and mould your hair and hold the desired style with a natural look. Dispense a small amount into your hand, distribute evenly between both hands and rub it into your hair and style as required. Great for any hairstyle as can create curls as well as giving good hold.
