Which hair product is best for you? Should you use a HAIR WAX, HAIR GEL OR a WAX? Then what is a PASTE, a POMADE, a HAIR CREAM, or a PUTTY? When to use a HAIR SPRAY? Is a HEAT PROTECTANT SERUM is necessary? If you haven't found anything regarding these questions? You have come to the right place. So today's blog is all about which hair product should you use? But before getting into the products, let me tell you that it totally depends on what hairstyle you want. So without wasting any more time, let's get into it.
HEAT PROTECTANT HAIR SERUM
You must be thinking what is this? Most of you must be styling your hair for long and for that purpose you must be using a HAIR DRYER. Do you know how much that damages your hair? If you style your hair using hair drier regularly, brother your hair is suffering a lot you don't even know.
I know I know you want to style your hair regularly, so get this into your head that you have to apply a HEAT PROTECTANT HAIR SERUM. Moreover, it also reduces your fizziness your hair and makes it more glossy and shinier.
It is a gel-based product. It has HIGH HOLD and HIGH SHINE. It makes your hair stiff. It is applied to the damped hair for styling. Mainly it is used for spiky or sharp hairstyles. It also gives a WET LOOK. Ideally, I don't prefer this hair product because it causes stiffness to your hair. If you really want your hair to be that way. Go for this one.
GOOD FOR SPIKES
HIGH HOLD AND HIGH SHINE
GOOD FOR SHORT SRARP HAIRSTYLE
GOOD FOR WET LOOK.
It can be taken out from your hair very easily
Not ideal for everyone
There are many good alternative products.
Hair was is the most popular product these days. It is an oil-based waxy product. It gives you HIGH HOLD and LOW SHINE. Most of the wax in the market causes stiffness but a good quality wax goes with any hairstyle.
Remember it may be greasy sometime.
HIGH HOLD and LOW SHINE
Goes with any hairstyle
Shows Greasyness after sometime
Not easily washable, it is difficult to take this product out of your hair. You have to use a shampoo to do this
If you need shine, this isn't the right product for you
This product is a great alternative to HAIR WAX. It has medium to high hold depending upon the usage. It gives medium to low shine as well. Basically, it gives you a matte finish. It is perfect for adding texture or details to your hairstyle. It can give you an effortless look that actually ladies find sexy. So if you want to impress someone, go for this one because it also adds softness to your hair. The only downside is that it dries out your hair. It is a dry product. By far it's my first choice when it comes to hairstyling. They also have a good smell.

Slightly on the EXPENSIVE side
Dries out your hair
If you need shine this isn't the best product for you.
If you need a CLAY with extreme high hold, you will need a HAIR PASTE. This product is thicker as compared to hair clay. It provides you great hold for your hair without being stiff and sticky. It is basically an advanced wax because it removes all the cons of hair wax.

It is not a versatile hair product
Hair Cream is one that has started popping out in the market recently. But the most important thing is that most of the people don't know what's the actual use of it? Hair creams neither provide any hold to your hair nor the shine itself.
The main use of hair cream is to remove the fizziness of hair. It also provides a polish and professional look. It is the best product for managing long hair.
Best product for LONG HAIR

Doesn't provide any hold or shine
Not of much use for people with short hair.
This product has got its own respect when it comes to finishing off your hairstyle. It is a post styling product which means after you style your hair with a wax or clay or pomade or any hair product, this hair spray comes into action. It gives you an extra hold to your hairstyle so that it remains at the same place for a longer time. Hair spray is a strong product so whenever you use this try to keep it away from getting it over your forehead and your eyes too.
Stays longer than any other product
Stiff and tight hair
Not easily washable
May result in the hair breaking
So here we come to an end and I hope now you know which hair product is best for you and your hairstyle.
