Hair Clay for Short Hair

Hair clay for short hair works well. I have had my mine cut short and it feels light and great. Actually I can't remember the last time when I had it shorter. I was too used to keeping it quite long and isn't it nice to make some changes in your life for the better? A little bit of styling clay helps me to look and feel greater! If you are looking for the best clay for short hairstyles, this page may help you find something to help you look even more refreshed and upbeat. I go for clay as it is fast and easy for styling. You will like it especially when you want to have a no-shine matt look. It varies from product to product of course but it usually gives a medium to strong hold that is lasting and still flexible and can be re-worked on if you want.

I like the drier texture more than what gel or mousse offers as I prefer a dryer look, so that it does not leave your style looking too shiny or sticky, or even greasy. It is more subtle that way but it is only what I think.

Whether you have 'messy' spiked crew-cut like, or carefully trimmed pixie hairstyle, you may find something just for you. It only takes you a minute to get it done! If you need a quick fix, or the right fragrance to start your day, have a look below.

Do you have any preference? Wet, matt, hard-hold, fruity, certified organic or just trendy? Included in the selection you will find products with 5-star reviews and at great prices, sulfate-free hemp with organics, vegan choices with certified organic plant ingredients and products are not tested on animals.

Hair Clay vs Hair Wax

Hair Clay

While hair clay is getting more and more popular especially for guys, let's find out more about it. Its main ingredient that gives it the texture is bentonite. Bentonite is a natural ingredient as it is derived from volcanic ash weathering. Hair clay products increase volumn of hair strands without weighing your hair down. It is quite lasting and so great for keeping your hairstyle throughout the day.

You can choose the consistencies as you may want it to be thicker or creamier. Some also come with organic ingredients and organic fragrances.

Hair Wax

Hair styling wax may sound a bit old-fashioned, but some prefer it as it has a lighter hold. It will suit you if you're looking for more shine, say medium to high shine whereas hair clay is usually matt. Wax is great for finishing touches such as classic side parts or ducktails.

This 5-star fine hair clay is my favorite. It gives extra hold flexible and matte-finish. If you have thin or thinning hair it works well for you too. This is also a hair clay for men or women with short hair. The styling is extremely good with the solid clay is amazingly flexible and will give you more volume. I like its organic hemp seed oil ingredient.

If your hair needs a lot of hold, this is the right choice for you. It works great for short hair. But it takes a bit more time to shampoo it out.

Enjoy the extra hold and the matte texture this clay provides. It also makes the hair soft and disentangles the hair. It doesn't look greasy and for my friends who have thin hair, it does a great job to add a lot of volume to their hair. Enjoy the natural matte look!

Hair Clay Application: How To Quickly Style Your Hair When You Are In A Hurry

Hair Clay Application: The most popular short hairstyles in 2015? Perhaps it doesn't matter as you have found the right style for yourself? They are the Pixie Cut, yes, it is still trendy and I like it best still and the Bob. The Pixie Cut is super simple and easy and looks amazing. It suits you if you like to keep the sides and the back short but the hair on the crown longer. It is great with a little help of hair clay or gel. It is the best if you are super busy and super lazy. Besides gel or clay, you can also dress up the crown area with pins, clips and other accessories.

The Bob is also very easy to look after. It is cut straight across at the jawline and you decide on the length to suit the features of your face. It goes with or without bangs. To give thin hair more volume you can layer it. This style is feminine and suits better those with naturally straight hair.

For different hair textures and whether you are bold or more conservative, you will find what you need for that extra hold to keep the style in place.

Easy Way to Style Short Hair

If you want long lasting hold for your bold style, I would recommend Alterna Hemp Modeling Clay, 2-Ounce Jar. Its nice fragrance gives a hint of pineapple. Ideal for short, very fine hair. It matters that it is sulfate-free, vegan and this line of products are not tested on animals.

I particularly like the citrus mint fragrance of American Crew Clay Pliable Molding Compound. This clay is great for thin or thinning hair and it gives long-lasting hold.

There are organic choices as well. For short curly hair to define layers and holding curls.

How to Remove Styling Clay or Wax from Hair?

It's important to know how to get rid of hair clay before you style it on! Here are two easy ways:

1. Put on coconut oil and then loosen hair from the clay. Wash hair with shampoo.

2. Wet your hair and apply hair conditioner. Rinse off the conditioner. If your hair still feels sticky from the styling clay, you can re-apply hair conditioner and rinse once more. Rinsing with hair conditioner usually works better than shampoo.
