What is hair wax?


Hair waxes are often mis-classified because in some parts of the world there are no words for pomades, gels, or pastes…so these hair products automatically get lumped into generic “wax” category, which adds to the confusion.  Waxes, in their truest forms, have two things in common:  they do not harden over time and typically have a shiny finish.

 So what hair products are waxes similar to?   Waxes are most comparable to pomades, but typically have a lighter hold.  They typically have the medium to high shine, but they lack in the overall hold.  Like pomades, waxes are ideal for hairstyles that require a comb such as the pompadour, classic side part, or ducktails.
