Pomade, wax, lotion, fiber, etc. - what's what  

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay.....I'm seeing all these different hair styling products and I'm confused as ever as to what is for what AND which of the salon brands are best? I have long straight hair, just past my ear. So ideally, I'm looking for a product that can give my hair a moist look, not too stiff, definitely not hard, and giving me control over my hair during the day. I would like it to have some movement. So for example, gel is out of the question. What do you advise? thanks

We should move this thread to the personal grooming section.

I think probably the best thing is to use a leave-in conditioner to give your hair some weight but not make it too heavy.  I have short hair, but I still use a conditioner because I can still style my hair, leaving it soft.  I don't like the hard "crunchy" feel that gel gives, and pomade is too greasy for me.  Wax might be good, but it's often a pain to use since you have to soften it. I personally use Kiehl's Creme with Silk groom and am very happy with it.

I do agree this is in the wrong section of the forum, but what the hck I'll answer while it's here.I use to have hair similar to that (you can kinda see it in the picture). I used pomade to get the effect you mentioned. Some pomades are gross though and too greasy- try a few and see what you like. Leave in conditioner works, as THC said, but is not as good for syling as it is for just making your natural hair style soft and glossy, IMO. If you want to restyle your hair you may needa product with more hold.I also liked "Manipulator" for Tigi's bedhead line. Wax is best for shirt spikey hair (which I have now) not for long hair.
