When it comes to appearances, hair plays a very important role. Presented in the following section are a few hair care products for men.

Just like women, men have a variety of products as well--these include, styling mousse, hair styling gels, holding sprays, pomades, styling waxes, form putty, multi-purpose hair oils, anti-dandruff shampoos, mild shampoos, tea tree shampoos, everyday use shampoos, hair conditioners, essential oils, defining pastes, hair serums, grooming creams, hair mattes, forming creams, shine lotions, wet look gels, and many other items in their cabinets. Some hair care products commonly used by men are given below:

Hair Gels
Hair gels have been around since the late 70s. They have since undergone tremendous changes and are now available in many variants. Gels are mostly water-based hair products that serve the purpose of keeping the hair in place while giving it a wet, shiny look. Depending on your hair type and desired hair style, you can choose between a gel that provides a strong hold, medium hold, or light hold. There are gels for almost every hair type, so you needn't worry if you have curly hair, frizzy hair, thin hair, or rough, coarse hair.

Styling Mousses
Mousse is a hair styling product that is used by both men and women. It works equally well with both wet and dry hair. It helps in keeping the hair in place, and gives it a healthy texture. Once applied, it remains effective throughout the day and you can re-style your hair anytime, using your fingers.

Shampoos and Conditioners
Today, shampoos and hair conditioners are available in numerous types and varieties. Depending on your hair type, lifestyle, existence of any hair problems (such as dandruff, head lice, or hair loss), and hair manageability, you can select the shampoo and the hair conditioner that best suits your needs.

Hair Sprays
Hair sprays are used more as a hair-finishing product than a hair-styling product. When used with wet hair, they help in adding a bit of gloss to your hair and help in maintaining the shine. When used with dry hair, they help in holding the hair and also form a protective layer over it, thereby safeguarding it from UV rays and harmful atmospheric chemicals.

Pomades and Hair Waxes
Pomades are used for ensuring a hold over and adding shine and gloss to the hair. They can be water-based or wax-based. Excessive use of pomade may make your hair sticky. They are mostly suitable for people with hair that is medium thick, or rough and coarse, and not for thinning hair. Hair wax is mostly oil-based and it helps in holding the hair and making it pliable. It works well with dry hair. Just like pomade, using too much hair wax isn't good for your hair either.

Always remember to wash your hair regularly and keep it healthy.
