Pomade or Clay?

Too bad there's no one-size-fits-all approach to hair styling, but we'll try our best to keep it sweet and simple for you.

Golden rule number #1: 
Don't use too much product! That is unless you like the grease ball look.

  1. Start with blow-dried or towel-dried hair.
  2. Warm up a pea-sized amount of product between your palms, then work it through your hair to achieve desired style. 
  3. If required: Add another pea-sized amount of product only if your hair needs that extra hold. If you feel your hair getting weighed down, then you've used too much!

Golden rule number #2:
Avoid putting product near your scalp to keep your hair roots healthy! Work product only through the mid-lengths to the tips of your hair.

Pomade (Medium Hold)

Choose pomade if you want a look that is...
  • slick, professional, and versatile from formal to semi-formal events
  • sleek and shiny (think David Beckham on the red carpet)
  • mouldable throughout the day
  • curly with control (Silk Barbers Pomade is the go-to for curly hair due to its mouldable nature and conditioning properties)
Don't choose pomade if...
  • you have greasy hair 
  • you are engaged with activities that will make you sweat a lot!
  • you'll be exposed to hot and humid conditions  
 

Clay (Strong Hold)

Choose CLAY if you want a look that is...

  • natural, matte, and textured
  • adds volume with a hold that lasts throughout the day
  • more durable through physical activities and hot weather
  • I-just-got-out-of-bed-but-I'm-still-damn-sexy 

Don't choose CLAY if...

  • you have fragile or thinning hair
  • you have tight curls (because curly hair is naturally more delicate, and clay is harder to wash out)
  • you are vegan (it has a little beeswax in it to achieve its strong hold)
  • you have brittle and damaged hair (clay naturally draws excess moisture and impurities out of your hair - which is a good thing unless your hair is too dry to start off with. If your hair is just a little on the dry side, it is recommended that you prep your hair with Silk Barbers Leave-in Conditioner before applying clay)
