You probably remember how the hair sits after a walk by the hairdresser; the hair is perfectly set up, to the side, or something completely third. But one thing is for sure, the hair fits perfectly with the style you want and suits your hair type perfectly.

So, the next day, when you have to do precisely the same thing as the hairdresser, your hair might not be as it is.

That's why we made Made4men a little guide to which hair wax is best for your hair and your style.

If you already have thick hair, it's not about choosing a wax that provides more volume and thickness. It just gets too much of a good thing. You need to find the wax that fits your hair correctly.

Most hair products indicate how much strength and to hold it provides. For example, if you see the 2-3, it often means that it does not give much structure and grip, while 5-6 gives an incredible amount. You say that the low numbers are for men with fine hair, whereas the higher numbers are for men with thick and healthy hair.

The strength of wax also depends a lot on how much you challenge it. So if you have a hairstyle that wants to stand straight in the air, then, of course, it also requires a stronger wax than you are used to. There are waxes for every type. At Made4men we have over 50 different types and brands of hair wax, each made to complete your hairstyle.
