Deciding to use a new product on your hair can always be a daunting thought, espceically considering, the product in nature and purpose is very stiff and hardening. But don’t be weary, because our list of hair wax recommendations comes straight from the highest trained barbers and grooming professionals.

Kevin Murphy Super Goo: What Kevin Murphy’s signature product, Super Goo, does best is gives maximum hold to the hair without being greasy or sticky. It sits well on the hair and is relatively easy to wash off. Just a dime-sized amount on your hair and it is set for the day.

Baxter of California Clay Pomade: The clay pomade by Baxter of California has a distinct job of giving great hold with a matte look after use. The product has beeswax as an ingredient that gives a strong pliable hold without shine.

Bed Head Hard to Get: One of a more commonly available hair product, the Bed Head Hard to Get gives a medium firm hold with no shine and a matte finish. It works particularly well with thin hair and gives it the look like no product has been used.

Patricks S2: Patricks hair products tend to be not only functional, but nourishing as well. The S2 pomade is composed of red clover sage and saw palmetto is essentially a hair mask for your hair in the sense that it is very nourishing and also does a good job of giving you medium hold and a shiny look.

Pankhurst The Pomade: What this product by Pankhurst is reliable for is giving you that extra firm hold – be it long or short hair – without leaving your hair crisp or glued to one place. It is pliable, yet residue free.
