    What are Clay-Based Hair Products?

    As the name indicates, clay-based hair products are styling aids that contain natural clays, such as bentonite or kaolin, which provide texture, volume, and a matte finish to the hair. These products are known for their strong hold and ability to add definition without making the hair look greasy.

    How Do Clay-Based Hair Products Benefit My Hair?

    Volume and Texture: Clay products add significant volume and texture, making them ideal for men with fine or thinning hair.

    Matte Finish: Unlike some styling products that can leave a shiny or greasy look, clay provides a natural, matte finish.

    Strong Hold: They offer a firm hold, which helps in maintaining hairstyles throughout the day without the need for reapplication.

    Nourishment: Natural clays can also nourish the scalp and hair, helping to absorb excess oils and impurities.

    Are Clay-Based Hair Products Suitable for All Hair Types?

    While clay-based products are particularly beneficial for men with fine or thin hair due to their volumising properties, they can be used on all hair types. Men with thicker hair may find that these products help control frizz and provide a strong hold for more structured styles.

    How Do I Use a Clay-Based Hair Product?

    To ensure a matte look, start with clean, dry hair. Scoop a small amount of clay into your hands and warm it up between your palms, making it easier to apply.  You can always add more if needed.  Distribute the product evenly through your hair, starting from the roots and working towards the tips. Use your fingers or a comb to style your hair as desired. For more volume, style upwards and outwards. A blowdryer can assist here.

    How Do I Remove Clay-Based Hair Products?

    A good degreasing shampoo is all it takes to break down the clay product in your hair, rinsed out well to remove residue. If you use a clay styling product daily, ensure you use a shampoo appropriate for daily use. Follow this up with a conditioner to keep your hair moisturised and manageable.
