What Is A Hair Cream And How Do You Use It?
There is truly nothing more appealing than a well-groomed man. This is a time proven fact, as men have been grooming themselves since the Stone Ages when the morning shave was first invented. These days there is a little more option from how and what we shave, to how we style our hair and more importantly what we style our hair with. The product you chose often depends on the look you’re trying to achieve. If you are looking for a product that leaves your hair looking natural and effortless then a hair cream might be the next bathroom essential for you.
Hair cream, commonly referred to as styling cream, is a hair product with a creamy consistency that has been in circulation since the 1920s. However, the recipe has changed tremendously since then as hair cream is no longer a greasy, oil-based gunk that stylish men use to heavily slick back their hair and instead is a subtle product that leaves your hair looking natural, refreshed and effortlessly groomed.
Most modern hair creams are used to create casual and relaxed hairstyles that don’t appear to be product heavy. Hair cream often gives a minimal shine and a low to medium hold making it perfect for hairstyles that require plenty of movement and texture. This is the product you should invest in if you have medium to long length hair as well as curly or coarse hair. This is because hair cream is often used for taming stray hairs, controlling frizz, and untangling hair, giving your look a sleek finish without weighing it down or leaving you looking greasy.
However, this is not the product you are looking for if you’re aiming for a high-maintenance hairstyle such as a mohawk or a pompadour. These hairstyles are more suited to stronger products such as a hair wax or styling clay, like NO GUNK’s Styling Funk or even their Matte Lava Clay.
NO GUNK has launched a new game-changing hair styling cream of their own, the Funky Flex Cream! This product was inspired and created for the many lockdown lads that didn’t have access to their usual barbers and therefore chose to grow out their hair and have since kept their new long locks post-pandemic. Now these men are on the hunt for an easy-to-use styling cream made with completely natural ingredients with a long-lasting hold – a product that wasn’t available on the market.
So, after a year in the making, the hunt is over. We give you the Funky Flex Cream: a 100% natural and nourishing, water-based styling cream made with mineral rich Kaolin, Rose Water, Hemp Seed Oil and Cactus Seed Oil. This product will give your hair a textured and natural look with an impressively firm yet flexible hold that lasts all day long – a first of its kind! It has a creamy lightweight consistency which makes for an easy and effortless application, especially for longer hair lengths, and it’s just as easy to wash out too! As always, you have our NO GUNK guarantee that it will leave no residue on your hands or in your hair after any application. The Funky Flex Cream will have you feeling like there is no product in your hair at all apart from the warm, woody scent that follows you everywhere you go.
