A step-by-step guide to using hair wax

Don’t you hate it when you’re styling your hair in the morning, but it just won’t cooperate? Instead of settling for average hair days, it’s best to invest in hair products that help you achieve your desired look every time. Case in point: a hair wax that provides a natural hold over your hair and allows for easy styling without the added stiffness. Ahead, find out how you can incorporate it in your AM routine.  

How to use hair wax

  • Start with clean and dry hair. This will ensure better product adherence and avoid clumping.
  • Hair wax is something that can easily be overused and look clumpy. So, make sure you start with a small amount, about pea-sized or even less. It's always better to add more later, if needed. Using excess product in one go can make your hair look greasy, which is the exact opposite of what we want.
  • Warm up the wax in between your fingers to ensure an even distribution of the product on your hair. Start by applying the wax to just the surface of your hair. Apply a thin layer to your hair and avoid contact between the wax and your scalp.  
  • Then, use your hands or a brush to create the shape you desire. Once you get your desired style, go in with tiny amounts of product and tame any flyaways to get a sleek look.

Some bonus hair wax tips for maintenance and care

  • Avoid overusing the hair wax or using it throughout the day to fix your hairstyle. This will end up making your hair look greasy.
  • It’s better to opt for a water-based wax as it is ​​generally easier to wash out and less likely to create unwanted buildup compared to oil-based waxes.
  • When washing your hair, using a clarifying shampoo once a week will remove product buildup and prevent any residue from accumulating and affecting your overall hair health.
  • If you use hair wax regularly, ensure that you have a nourishing haircare routine.
