When it comes to styling your hair, there are a plethora of products to choose from. Two popular options are clay pomades and gel pomades. While both products can help achieve a variety of hairstyles, there are some key differences between the two that may influence your decision on which one to use. Let’s explore the benefits of using clay pomades over gel pomades without being too extreme of course! This isn’t a podcast :).
One major advantage of clay pomades is their ability to provide texture and volume to your hair. Clay pomades are formulated with natural ingredients like kaolin clay and beeswax, which help create a matte finish and add thickness to your hair. This can be particularly beneficial for those with fine or thin hair, as the added texture can make your hair appear fuller and more voluminous. In contrast, gel pomades can leave your hair looking sleek and shiny but may not provide the same level of texture and volume.
Another benefit of using clay pomades is their versatility.Β 
Clay pomades can be easily reworked throughout the day, allowing you to adjust your hairstyle as needed. This flexibility is particularly useful for those who like to experiment with different looks or who want a product that can keep up with their active lifestyle. On the other hand, gel pomades can harden and become stiff once they dry, making it difficult to restyle your hair without washing it out and starting over. In addition, clay pomades are generally more lightweight and less greasy than gels. This can be advantageous for those with oily or sensitive scalps as heavy or greasy products can weigh down your hair and cause buildup over time. They provide a natural hold without leaving your hair feeling sticky or weighed down, allowing for a comfortable and breathable styling experience. Gel pomades can leave a residue on your hair that may require frequent washing to remove. Furthermore, clay pomades are often preferred for creating messy, textured hairstyles.Β 
Now we’re not saying gel is the devil because lots of gels provide great balance, hold and shine but we like things a bit more natural and free. The matte finish and pliable hold of clay pomades make them ideal for achieving a more relaxed and tousled look. Whether you're going for a messy quiff or a tousled bedhead style, clay pomades can help you achieve a effortlessly cool hairstyle with ease. Gel pomades are better suited for slick, polished hairstyles that require a strong hold and high shine.
Overall, clay pomades offer a range of benefits that make them a popular choice for many individuals looking to style their hair. From providing texture and volume to offering flexibility and a lightweight feel, clay pomades have a lot to offer. While both clay and gel pomades have their own unique qualities, those looking for a versatile and natural looking styling product may find that clay pomades are the perfect fit for their needs.
