Choosing between types of hair products, at first, might seem daunting. Just a few of the most common are creams, muds, pomades, gels, tonics, and waxes. With such a wide range, you might wonder how to choose the correct one. The barbers at Peaky Barbers are experienced in choosing the right type of product for every need.
The brand of choice for Peaky Barbers is the Mr Muk range, a barber exclusive range of muds, pomades, and creams.
Factors to consider when purchasing hair products:
Choosing the right products for your hair and style is important. The following are factors to consider when buying the right products for you.
The choice between matte and glossy hair products?
Choosing matte or glossy depends on personal preference. Although glossy fell out of fashion in recent decades, it has started to make a comeback. Matte finishes have been popular due to their more natural look.
Glossy hair products often contain ingredients that help reflect light giving a wet-looking finish. Matte products do the opposite. They absorb the light, providing a more natural and dry finish. (When choosing glossy/high shine products, be sure to check if it's oil-based or water-soluble, because oil-based products are much harder to wash out.)
Which hold strength is right for me?
When selecting your hold strength of pomade the first factor to consider is the thickness of your hair. Thinner hair requires a light hold, whereas thicker hair may require a strong hold to keep the hair in place.
It’s important to note that the amount of water mixed with the pomade at the time of application can affect the strength of hold - your hair should be at least towel dried, and using a hair dryer will give the best results. Since Mr Muk products are water-soluble, wet hands can be used to restyle during the day. Although, restyling may reduce the hold strength.
Are water-soluble or water-insoluble/oil-based hair products better?
This depends on personal preferences. Water-soluble hair products are typically favoured for their convenience.
Water-soluble products can be easily washed out and restyled with some water.
Oil-based products tend to be difficult to wash out, but the benefit is that they last longer and some prefer the greasier look.
The entire Mr Muk range is water-soluble. If you are interested in an oil-based range checkout the REUZEL product range or our article on choosing a REUZEL product on our website. If you are unsure about which is the best for your needs, book a haircut with Peaky Barbers in Brisbane and one of our barbers can consult with you about your desired look and needs.
What is the difference between a mud, a pomade and a cream?
Mud products excel at leaving the hair with a natural and rough look. Muds are loved by many due to the water solubility and the low shine. If shine is an important factor to you, a pomade is a great choice. Pomades come in a wider range of gloss-matte (shine) levels, as well as hold strengths. Both muds and pomades provide a gritty, rough, and textured style. Creams are a lot softer than pomades or muds. They hydrate and are great to tame frizz, especially excel at long or thin hair, and generally only provide a light hold.
Mr Muk Product Range:
MR MUK FLEXIBLE HOLD GROOMING CREAM 100G
Flexible hold pomade is perfect for those who like a soft style or have finer hair. The light hold helps make the hair feel less crunchy and is easy to restyle with a little water.
MR MUK FIRM FLEXIBLE HOLD MEDIUM GLOSS MUD 100G
If you like your hair with a firm hold and a smooth shine, then this pomade is the one for you. We find it sits between the brutal and gritty products and works well for medium length hair.
MR MUK STRONG HOLD GRITTY FINISH PASTE 100G
This paste has a medium to strong hold. Where it shines is its gritty and rough look. Gritty finish paste is excellent for “messy” hairstyles, especially for longer and slicked backed cuts. The gritty paste adds texture, which is also great for looser styles and thin hair.
MR MUK STRONG HOLD ULTRA MATTE PASTE 100G
Ultra-matte paste is perfect for those seeking a more natural and drier look. The strength level is suitable for all hair types.
MR MUK EXTRA HOLD HIGH GLOSS POMADE 100G
This pomade provides maximum shine without looking greasy. You won’t have any issues with your hair feeling hard or dry, instead leaving your hair with a sleek finish.
MR MUK EXTREME HOLD SEMI-MATTE MUD 100G
The semi-matte mud is the ideal product for those seeking a raw, gritty, and textured look with a low level of shine. The extreme hold is great for all hair types and looks best on short styles. The water-soluble mud makes it easy to restyle during the day.
MR MUK BRUTAL HOLD SEMI-MATTE MUD 100G
This mud has a tough hold. It’s great for heavy and difficult to tame hair. The semi-matte style is an excellent choice for a natural finish with subtle shine.
