How to use matte pomade
Of course, it's great to hear from professional stylists - they have the education and experience to help us look our best. To change it up, it's also fun to hear how "civilians" use products every day - a great way to get inspiration.
Thanks to Ryan and Marshall for sharing their advice about how they get that salon look even when they don't have time to go to the salon. Here they talk about using a matte pomade.
Here's what they had to say about getting a low maintenance, style it and forget it look for the day.
R: So tell me about what you do and what you use?
ANTIDOTE Styling Clay uses carnauba wax from the Brazilian carnauba palm. The plant produces wax to protect the leaves from damage during hot, dry weather.
M: For me, it's all about a low maintenance matte look, I don't like using a comb or brush - just set the style using my hands and fingers. My goal is to get a look that I can rely on for the day. For that I use a matte pomade from ANTIDOTE. This one has carnauba wax, it's not sticky but gives a firm hold. I grab a nickel sized amount, rub in in my hands until it is smooth, then just rub it through my hair. On wetter hair, it gives a smoother look. On dry hair, it adds more texture. That's how I like to use it.
R: Matte vs. regular?
M: I don't like a lot of shine, so it's why I go with the matte product. I just want a nice low-key hold, so this is right for me.
R: Looks like your ready to crush your business?
M: What I like about this product is I can put it in and not have to think about it again. It's not getting hard and crunchy. It just looks natural.
