For men’s hair choose the type of product based on your hair’s length and texture. If you have fine, short hair and want it to stand up – use strong gels or waxes. Longer hair gives you more options, depending on how full you want it to look.
Avoid heavier products like oil-based pomades or creams for thinning hair. They’ll weigh down your hair. Never slap product straight onto your hair. Rub a small amount between your palms and then apply from the back of the head forward.
That’s hold as in holding power. Hold refers to how flexible your hair is after you’ve applied the product. A product with a high or stronger hold keeps hair stiffer and in place. Products considered low or medium hold leave hair more pliable. What type of hold you choose is often a matter of preference, but also depends on the hairstyle and look that you’re trying to achieve.
Shine refers to the appearance of your hair after you’ve applied a hair product. The shine may be glossy, or wet, while a low shine (a.k.a. a matte finish) may make it seem like you have no product in your hair at all. How much shine you leave in your hair often depends on the type of hairstyle. Some require more shine than others.
Another term worth noting is texture, which refers to how your hair looks and feels after applying the product. Textures are important when layering your hair for different hairstyles.
