Hair clay is consistently regarded as one of the most essential hair styling products for men. Since hair clay was introduced to the hairstyling world, hairstylists around the world swear on the effectiveness and benefits of using hair clay on men. In fact, certain hairstylists and looks can only be achieved by applying hair clay that other hair pomades and waxes are not able to. However, aside from styling purposes, hair clay can also boost hair and scalp health. As such, here are some interesting hair clay benefits you may not know.
Adds Volume and Texture
One of the main reasons people gravitate towards hair clay is to instantly add volume and texture to their hair. Let’s face it, not everyone is blessed with thick and bountiful hair, so if you’re looking to do up a hairstyle that needs to have tons of volume, hair clay is your best bet. How this is achieved is through the clay mineral, be it kaolin or bentonite. The clay compound helps to make the hair follicle feel and looks thicker, therefore volumizing and adding texture to the hair. When the hair is more textured, hairstyles tend to stay in place longer.
Improves Scalp Health
Not many people may know that clay actually brings about a ton of benefits, for both the hair and skin. When it comes to the hair and scalp, in particular, clay has the ability to soothe the scalp, while drawing out any excess oil and other impurities at the same time. This leaves the scalp feeling extremely refreshed as the pores are now unclogged and there’s instant relief from dandruff. By applying hair clay over time, you’ll find that your hair is much healthier, promoting hair growth and a better hair environment in which dryness and flakiness are reduced.
Great Alternative to Pomades and Waxes
For those with oily hair and scalp, it can be counter-productive to apply oil-based products like waxes and most pomades. In such cases, hair clay makes for a wonderful alternative to hold your hairstyle in place and allowing you to style your hair to the desired look. By using oil-based hair products, you can run the risk of clogging up the pores even further, leading to a buildup of sebum that irritates the scalp and gives the hair an unappealing and greasy appearance. Since hair clay does not contain a high amount of oil, there will not be an overproduction of oil on your scalp.
Compared to other hair styling products, hair clay can be extremely easy to use. All you need to do is take a pea-size amount and rub it between your hands to warm the product up. Once the hair clay becomes more pliable, you just have to apply it evenly to the hair. In addition, hair clay offers much flexibility. Simply add water and you can change up the firmness of your hairstyle. For a stronger hold, the hair should be dryer.
