A good pomade is a clever blend of wax and oil to help you achieve a classic look made popular by Leonardo DiCaprio (think The Great Gatsby). Pomades are a great alternative to gel to give your hair a little extra shine and softer texture, which makes them especially great for curly hair. The best pomades are water-based, making it easy for them to wash out.

Imperial Barber’s pomade is one of the strongest-water based products out there and is perfect for when you want to give your hair a little extra shaping or texture. This pomade can be used on either wet or dry hair, so you can style your locks with ease — whether that means fresh out of the shower or a post-workday refresh.

4. Fatboy Putty

Fatboy Putty

Fatboy Putty | Fatboy Hair

Besides it’s incredibly cool name, Fatboy Putty is a dry, tacky product with some muscle that will make your hair seem less like it’s full of product, and more like you just took a day off from shampooing. It’s smooth and creamy to the touch and it gives your hair a matte finish if you’re coveting an intentionally tousled style.

Apply it to dry hair by taking a nickel or dime sized amount and rubbing it between your hands until you feel some friction and the putty feels smooth, or alternatively, apply to wet hair for a more defined-looking style.

5. Dove Men+Care Thickening Spray Gel

Have you ever looked into your bathroom mirror and thought, “I wish there was a hair spray that also thickens my hair?” Well, you’re in luck because Dove Men+Care’s spray on gel is what your bathroom grooming arsenal needs. This spray-on gel with a unique caffeine-infused formula gives your hair a clean medium hold that will keep it thick and full-looking all day long without any sticky residue.

6. Cold Spring Apothecary Sea Salt Spray

Cold Spring Apothecary Sea Salt Spray | Cold Spring Apothecary

Summer’s fading fast, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up the effortlessly cool look. Keep the beach vibe going with Cold Spring Apothecary Sea Salt Spray, infused with citrus and ginger, that literally smells like the ocean in a bottle.

Spray it on dry hair, work it in, and it will weirdly replicate the effect of ocean water in your hair and create random waves that will make it look thicker and like you’ve just come back from surfing. Steer clear of the product if you’re prone to flakes, though, as it has salt as an actual ingredient and it can dehydrate your hair a bit. However, it has less of a drying effect than other sea salt sprays. The product is also great for men with thinning hair who want an interesting boost.
