The issue with men’s hair is that it doesn’t just grow straight, nor will it grow curly if you don’t make a few simple mistakes. You see, hair follicles are scattered, making it very easy for them to be tangled up. Most hair stylists will tell you that your best bet when you want your hair to look really glossy is to go for a good blow dryer and to keep a little extra conditioner on hand.
So now that we’ve decided not to blow our hair back into knots every time we blow dry, how can we use pomade for waves to get the look we want? I usually prefer to use a pomade-based spray called H2O. While you can also use an old fashioned brush to sculpt the top of your hair, you should be careful about the effect you’re going for. Since pomade is a liquid and bristles can snag on the comb and make your curls unkempt, I think a pomade-based spray with volume is easier to control. Plus, you can spray from a distance and it’s much easier to comb out unwanted clumps of hair from the bristles.
If you’re not too concerned about your waves staying in tact, and you’re looking for a lot of moisture, you can try a spray for dry hair. For instance, if you have dry hair and you want to achieve waves, try using Hair Flip, which has a lot of moisture without being extremely wet. If you want to add shine to your hair, try Simple Shine, which is a low-protein hair spray that contains olive oil, which helps bring moisture back into your hair without adding a ton of body.

When choosing a pomade to use for waves, you want to choose one that has a little extra kick. I like to use all-natural brands such as Olaplex, which contain ingredients that help strengthen the hair shafts, cut down on split ends, and soothe irritated scalps.
Another factor to consider when choosing a pomade for waves is the product’s molecular structure. Take all the blow dryers and hair dryers you have lying around the house and figure out which ones “hold” hair. Which one does your hair look best in? If you need to know which hairsprays and mousses you should use, you should go online and read reviews.
When you’re choosing a spray for dry hair, remember that it needs to be used on damp hair and when it’s warm it will provide the smoothest results. And since hair dryers only work with cool or cold water, you might have to experiment with a few different temperatures in order to find the one that works best for you. You also don’t want to use a brush with a pomade for waves since brushes tend to cause more damage to the hair shaft.
Last but not least, before you pick up a product that claims to give you waves, you should experiment with the styling tools in your bathroom, or if you have the space, your salon. Just because it says it will “help” you achieve waves doesn’t mean it has to be painful and messy! Read more about how to deal with dry hair here.
If you’re still unsure about the best way to use pomade for waves, then I recommend asking for my opinion on the topic. I’m no professional, but I have had a long experience as a hairstylist, and you can trust me when I say that nothing works for everybody. If you know what you’re looking for, that’s great, but if you just need a little guidance, then all you need to do is start with your hands and your imagination.
