Our Top 5 Men’s Hair Products

Men’s hair products are always changing. There are a ton of them out there, and with such an oversaturated market it can be hard to know which ones are really worth the money. To help you navigate a little bit easier, we’ve put together our top 5 men’s hair products of all time – the tried-and-true list that we’ve spent countless hours cultivating!

Reuzel Red Pomade

Reuzel Red Pomade is a medium hold pomade that includes a unique combo of ingredients, allowing it to easily wash from hair without leaving greasy residue or buildup. It’s fully water-soluble, which means it won’t dry your hair out or make it look stiff. A key ingredient here is Castor Oil, which encourages moisture and manageability. The pomade is infused with a subtle, masculine vanilla scent, so you don’t have to worry about smelling like weird plastic-y hair product.

Why we love it: This particular version of Reuzel Pomade a medium hold and perfect for summertime: it’s lightweight, non-greasy, and will wash out as soon as you hit the beach.

You can pick up the Red Pomade and all other Reuzel products at 18/8 Fine Men’s Salon San Diego.

Griff’s Post-Shave Balance Balm

Griff’s Post-Shave Balance Balm is one of the best post-shave moisturizers we’ve tried. It contains botanical-based hair growth inhibitors, which slow hair growth and reduce the number of times you have to shave every week, plus other natural ingredients like mint, rosemary, and tea tree essential oil. The balm is cooling, moisturizing, and ultra-soothing (not to mention pH balancing). This is a great choice for men whose skin gets irritated or red after shaving.

Why we love it: It’s all-natural and doesn’t feel greasy, making it the perfect remedy for irritated, red, or bumpy skin post-shave.

You can pick up Griff’s products, including the Balance Balm, right here at 18/8 San Diego.

Go247 Mint Thickening Shampoo

Go247 makes great products for everyday use. The Mint Thickening Shampoo smells awesome, and packs in a bunch of ingredients that instantly and noticeably thicken hair. It lathers well and is super rich, so you only need to use a small amount each time – a little goes a long way! The Mint Thickening Shampoo is also good for problem scalps: peppermint oil has restorative properties that help reduce dryness and flakiness.

Why we love it: This shampoo just feels good. It’s ultra-creamy and rich and leaves your hair feeling softer and thicker every time.

Pick it up at 18/8 San Diego on your next visit.

American Crew Fiber

American Crew’s Fiber is a great matte styling option (very low-shine). The resinous cream helps thicken, texturize, and increase the fullness of short hair while providing a strong and pliable hold. If you make sure you don’t use too much and apply it when your hair is slightly damp, it will work great against windy days, fussy cowlicks, and any other unwanted flyaways. Less is definitely more with this product, and even though its texture is creamy and non-waxy, using too much can leave your hair chunky and greasy.

Why we love it: It provides intense, pliable hold without the wet and overly shiny look of gel.

Pick up this and other American Crew products at 18/8 San Diego.

Sea Salt Spray by Sachajuan

This is the easiest instant styler out there. Sea salt is great for getting that “I just got back from the beach” look when you haven’t actually been to the beach recently – tousled, texturized, and just the right amount of attitude. Spray it in damp or dry hair; the salt acts like a dry shampoo to absorb some grease, but you’ll still get a little shine. The result is a devil-may-care textured look that you usually only get from a day at the beach. Perfect for medium and longer men’s hairstyles.
Why we love it: it’s like a day at the beach in a bottle. Creates perfect texture without too much effort – and it smells awesome without trying too hard.
