A styling cream or wax will provide your tresses lightweight moisture, frizz-free smoothness with long lasting definition of your curls, coils and kinks. These are lighter than gels because they provide less hold.
Wanting a softer hold is perfect for some styles especially if volume is desired curl definition is not necessary or will only limit the volume.
Neither product is necessarily better than the other its just a matter of preference for that particular hairstyle. With so many natural rocking softer styles we have seen a resurgence styling creme as the styler of choice.
A styling wax is just like it sounds. It is a milky-like gum substance that smoothes into a paste, and can be just a wax, or even a gel wax. A gel wax looks like a gel, but acts like a wax.
They work best with layers, and also if you are working on a messy look. It’s is better on shorter hair and great for a pixie cut but watch out as it is tough to wash out. It will last as long as you do so if you are in for a long day or night it might be the ideal product.
They can come in sprays, foams and other forms but the basic premise of the volumizer is to add height at the roots. If you have curly hair that falls flat, then you may be interested in this product. They give the hair temporary thickness with the humectants to draw moisture from the air to make your tresses fuller and polymers to coat the hair, and make the strands look thicker.
Do not make the mistake of adding it all over the hair, or it could weigh it down. Just add to the roots to thicken the base and allow the rest of the hair to seem bigger but lighter.
Anyone and everyone can use mousse. It also adds volume but shine as well and even a little hold. It is lighter than a cream and foamy. Usually has no clumps and often dispensed in an aerosol foam spray or in cream form. It was big a few generations ago but many naturals are finding this product to be just what it they need for soft but effective hold, bounce, shine and conditioning.
Well, that’s it: hopefully we cleared things up for you all, so that you can make the best choice in styling products for you!
