Creating an eternal style means using the right product, but if you’re considering a new hairstyle or want to elevate your own; what do you use? At Don Juan Pomade we’ve got every product you need to achieve the look you want.
Finding the right hold and sheen can change your hair entirely, even if you’re styling it the same way you usually do. We won’t just dig into the difference between products, though. Discover the most common hairstyles for each product and see if you can find yours.
These days, Pomade is a catch-all term for men’s hair products, but there used to be fewer options. Original pomades like Murray’s Superior Pomade and Brylcreem Original Hairdressing used oil bases like petroleum, petrolatum and glyceryl stearate. Pomade first rose to prominence in the 1920’s but lard, beeswax, and petroleum jelly were used on their own at the beginning of the 20th century.
Many recipes leaned heavily on a particular ingredient. Beeswax was common, and you could consider these early pomades as the first hair waxes. They weren’t branded as different products, though, and wax-based and petroleum-based products were all labeled as a pomade.
Clay and wax are also pomade – They just use different ingredients than traditional oil-based pomades.
We offer pomade in a water-based and petroleum form. Both can provide similar styling options, but there are some key differences.
Some of the more common hairstyles to use pomade include side-parted hair, fades and slick-backs.
Wax is ideal for short to medium hair. It’s easy to reapply and doesn’t harden your hair. You can also use wax to increase the thickness and texture of your hair; which makes wax a great option for thinning hair or men with receding hairlines.
Wax is also a perfect choice for light styling. It provides just enough hold and weight to settle a jumpy cowlick.
Wax provides a strong hold. Using it in moderation is key because a little really does go a long way.
Wax offer the flexibility to be restyled throughout the day.
Our wax-based pomade provides the hold and high-shine you’re looking for. We use a combination of waxes including microcrystalline wax and beeswax. Grease gave way to the term “greaser” in the 50’s and helped propel a counter-culture revolution. We’re proud to offer a modern take on hair grease that doesn’t weigh you down.
Some of the more common hairstyles to use wax include the pompadour, sweepback and side part.
Clay can be water, wax, or oil-based. The base can affect the hold, sheen, and how easy it is to wash out. We’ve chosen a water base for our Don Juan Meteor Clay Pomade so that you can get the matte finish and hold of a clay with the re-shaping and easy hair clay removal that a water base provides.
Clay delivers one of the strongest holds available. That’s what makes it so great for volume-oriented hairstyles. When you need your hair to defy gravity and stay put all day long, there’s nothing better than clay.
Some of the more common hairstyles to use clay include longer styles, natural, and dry looks.
