Hair Care Essentials and Styling Tips

By: Beau Vuillemot • Feb 28, 2022

Do you step into the hair care aisle of your local store and immediately have a panic attack over the multitude of options? Sit down. Take a breath. Listen to some Enya. Hair care doesn’t have to be that scary, dude. In fact, when you have all the basic essentials, it can be a breeze. Whether you just want the tools to keep your hair clean and healthy or you want to style your hair like a pro, here is everything you need – no panic attacks necessary. In fact, dare we say it? You may even have a little fun.

Shampoo And Conditioner

Let's start with the basics, young padawan. You need a clean head of hair, period. If you haven’t heard: the caveman look went out millenia ago. If you have oily hair or straight hair, we recommend washing that bad boy every day. Normal, dry, or wavy hair can go 2-3 days between washings to maintain healthy oil. Conditioner is also crucial to protecting your hair since shampoo often dries out hair and even damages it when overused. 

Our completely natural Tea Tree Shampoo & Conditioner cleans and nourishes your locks while also targeting problems like dandruff and irritation. Its soothing and clarifying formula also strengthens hair and soothes itchy scalps.

Hairspray

We know what you're thinking: hairspray is for pageant beauty queens and housewives from the 50's. Think again. If you're looking for a good wingman to paste or pomage, hair spray is your guy. It can give you a low to high shine, and its even ideal for adding volume to thinning hair.

If you happen to live in a place with high humidity, it can also give you a hand with limp hair. Hair spray is usually the perfect finishing touch to styled hair, so don't knock it! Give hairspray a chance!

Pomade

Yearning for that slick Don Draper look? Pomade is your new best friend. Pomade gives your hair extra hold and shine and can be used on either towel-dried or completely dried hair. How to apply it? First, start off with a very small amount in your hands and warm it up with your fingertips. You can add more depending on how much hair you have. From there, apply it to your roots then comb through the rest of your mane. Lastly, you can use a blow dryer to lock everything in place for a finished look.

Our water-soluble and non-greasy pomade gives you a strong hold and high shine, perfect if you want to fool people into thinking you have a professional hair stylist at your beck and call. Best of all, it's easy to rinse off and free from harsh chemicals.

Hair Wax

If you're looking for something to shape and mold your hair that's a bit lighter than pomade, wax is the way to go. Perfect for that messy bedhead look, it's sure to give off that bad boy, Rebel Without a Cause vibe, even if you pretty much always pay your taxes on time and have never gotten a traffic ticket once in your life.

Choose wax if you have thicker hair or are looking for a more natural look. You can apply it to dry hair for more texture. It'll give you a medium to high shine, and it's typically made from ingredients like beeswax and lanolin.

Leave-In Conditioner

If you go a few days between washings, leave-in conditioner can work wonders. It's also a lifesaver if you have dry or frizzy hair. It tends to be less thick than the conditioner you use in the shower, and it's ideal for giving your hair that hit of moisture and hydration when its feeling a bit dry.

If your hair is prone to tangling, it can also help and make styling easier. It can also protect hair from heat damage if you're dying your hair or frequently blow drying it. Think of leave-in conditioners as that extra boost of protection from harsh conditions. It's got your back.
