If clothes do make a man, then his hair should be considered the most important aid to that transformation. But more often than not, men get lost in the avalanche of haircuts and don’t know how to choose. Today, we have created the definitive guide to the best men’s hair products on the market – from shampoos and conditioners to lubricants and gels – to help ensure that your men’s hair network is consistent.
Australian grooming brand Aesop pretty much has the monopoly on minimalist-friendly shampoo. The subtly-branded packaging makes a welcome addition to any Instagram fanatic’s bathroom cabinet, and it just so happens that this particular option works wonders for calming irritated scalps too. A gentle, soothing blend of chamomile flower, fennel fruit and sage leaf works to cleanse hair while going easy on sensitive skin.
If you’re unlucky enough to suffer from both hair loss and dandruff, Nizoral is a must-buy – particularly seeing as there is evidence to suggest that dandruff can contribute to an unhealthy scalp and ultimately resulting in balding.Nizoral is packed with a potent ingredient called Ketoconazole, which prevents dandruff and the associated inflammation and irritation caused by it too. But that’s not all. Ketoconazole has also been shown to help prevent hair loss by temporarily inhibiting 5AR, the enzyme that is responsible for converting testosterone into DHT.
With 1% Ketoconazole (or 2% with a prescription), Nizoral has the ability to kill the fungi that naturally causes dandruff – and at the same time keep your hair where it belongs, on your head.
High hold but a mid-satin shine is what separates a great paste from a wax; it’s basically the bridge between a high sheen achieved by using a wax and the matte finish of a clay. Featuring “super-grip” technology, Gravity Paste, made from beeswax and other plant-derived ingredients such as spearmint (which can, incidentally, help reduce dandruff) and castor seed oil, which strengthens hair follicles and promotes hair growth, this product is as good for the maintenance and health of your hair as it is for keeping it looking in shape. Very pliable, it turns to a tacky texture when warmed in your palms and is great for sculpted styles.
This bespoke blend of beeswax, hydrating argan oil to nourish and anti-inflammatory kawakawa oil (a tree that is local to New Zealand), which helps to treat the scalp. A water-based solution which is better suited to medium to long hairstyles and for those who have trouble taming thicker locks. Offering a strong hold and boosting natural shine, it is easily applied by working through dry or damp hair and then moulded into shape. It also features a signature fragrance (Santa Monica) blended from Ho wood bark, pine needle extracts and cold-pressed orange rind.
It provides stellar hold, without the heavy weight. It also add a hint of shine. Plus, it smells nice, of spearmint, vetiver, and a hint of lavender. It’s great for hair that’s neither too thick or too thin.
The great thing about Slick Gorilla brand is that it creates innovative hair products for discerning men.

Smooth name, smooth natural, but most definitely will not form oil in your hair. This rich powder is sure to make your hair attractive.
