Overcoming Product Paralysis

When it comes to styling products for men, you have a lot of options. In fact, it may feel like too many. Pomade this, wax that, and next thing you know you’re in over your head in product choices.

A great way to counteract this hair product paralysis is to find a simple, easy-to-use product that’ll give you a look you like without a big fuss.

If you’re not into the overly styled or wet look, a styling cream is a best bet. Styling creams are lighter than waxes and work for all hair types, including thin hair. They’re perfect for when you want some control without looking like you’ve spent a lot of time styling your hair.

Mitch Clean Cut is one of our favorites. Its pliable hold offers all-day control, while its conditioning ingredients help your hair to stay soft and manageable. It’s a win-win.

To use it, simply work a small amount into your hands and distribute through damp or dry hair. It’ll give you an easy-to-manage, put-together style without making it look like you have a bunch of product in your hair. And that was your goal from the beginning, right?
