In general hair pastes are a bit thicker in consistency than pomades, and their consistency and textures can vary. A hair paste usually gives your hair a medium to very firm hold, and can leave your hair with a natural matte finish or add a touch of shine.
This makes hair pastes the most versatile men’s hair products out there and can be recommended for practically any hairstyle.They are water-based, so washing them out is super easy. You really can’t go wrong with choosing a product in the hair paste family!
Now typically, thicker hair pastes need to be warmed up before application. Rubbing thicker hair paste between your fingers or palms will soften the product allowing you evenly distribute it throughout your hair. Once the product is applied and your hair is styled, the product will begin to cool again and re-thicken, which helps give your hairstyle the hold it needs.
