What is hair cream?

Styling creams are a type of hairstyling product that can be used to create and hold many different hairstyles. They are available in different strengths, from light hold to strong hold, and can give you everything from a natural and matte finish to a high-shine finish.

Hair creams offer more pliability and versatility than hair gel, which tends to leave the hair looking wet and firmly holds styles in place all day. They also differ from hair wax, which gives a matte finish and can be difficult to wash out if oil-based.

Hair cream strikes a good balance between these products, offering less shine than gel, less weight than wax, and greater flexibility. It's suitable for all types of hair, from curly and thick hair to fine and even thinning hair. Check out some of the major benefits of adding a hair styling cream to your daily haircare routine:

  • Easy to apply
  • Adds texture
  • Lightweight
  • Enhances curl definition
  • Simple to wash out
  • Available in various holds and finishes

Which hair cream is best for men?

When choosing the best hair styling cream for men, you'll need to consider your hair type and the style you want to create.

The best hair cream for curly hair is one that can provide definition to curls and enhance their natural pattern. Instant Rockstar Soft Rock Medium Hold Styling Cream is great for styling curly hair. It's pliable and can be reworked so you can get the exact shape you need, and since it's water-based, it washes off easily with shampoo and conditioner. If frizz is a hair concern, tame it with the Double DAPA Texturizing Pack. This dynamic duo can add definition and smoothness to curls while providing texture.

If you're looking for a styling cream for long hair, try American Crew Firm Hold Styling Cream. It contains a moisturising formula that can nourish and tame longer hair while offering a low shine and a flexible finish that remains pliable throughout the day.

For thinning hair that needs a bit of extra fullness, the American Crew Forming Cream is an excellent choice. It delivers a natural shine with a medium hold, plus it contains lanolin and glycerin to soften and swell the hair shafts for the illusion of a thicker, healthier mane of hair.

To achieve that ultra-cool, classic look, a grooming cream will do the job. American Crew Grooming Cream works like a pomade to provide a strong hold and a high-shine finish that will keep hair back in a variety of sleek hairdos. There's also Fudge Grooming Putty, which adds extra body and texture to slick hairstyles. If matte is more your thing, Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS Mighty Matte offers a super strong hold and a matte look for separated hair with loads of texture.

How should you style your hair using hair cream?

Styling your hair with hair cream gives you plenty of options to achieve any hairstyle you want. As a versatile product with a range of different holds and finishes, the choice is yours as to how you will style your hair.

You can choose to go for a natural look with a low shine or matte finish using the American Crew Forming Cream. Comb your hair back into a modern pompadour with the American Crew Molding Clay, which blends beeswax and essential oils for a strong hold and medium-shine finish. For a messy bed-head look, Fudge Shaper is a hair wax cream with a semi-matte finish that lets you mould and shape your hair into texturised pieces.

If you want your hairstyle to last all day, NAK Hair Luxe Finishing Creme is a top choice. It's lightweight, keeping your hair soft and tousled without the crunchy feel typical of other creams. It's great at controlling frizz, taming flyaways and managing curls.

How do you perfect your look with hair cream?

Using a styling cream for your hair is an effortless way to achieve any style you want, and it's very easy to apply. Here's how to get the best results:

  1. Take a small scoop of the product and rub it between your palms.
  2. Apply to damp or dry hair with your fingers, raking it through until it is evenly distributed. For fine hair, use only a small amount to avoid weighing it down.
  3. Style your hair with your hands for a textured look, or grab a comb for a polished finish.
  4. Add hairspray for extra hold if needed.
