Hair Styling Tips

Use a shampoo with quality ingredients.


Layrite’s Daily Shampoo is formulated with the proper balance of ingredients to cleanse your hair without removing essential oils from it. Usually shampooing once per day, or every-other-day will suffice. If your hair is very dirty or you use heavy styling products, you’ll want to lather, rinse and repeat.

Apply a proper hair conditioner.


Conditioning your hair after shampooing will help keep it manageable, and in most cases, help make it appear thicker. “Moisturizing Conditioner” from Layrite® rinses clean and will leave hair feeling and looking healthy. Allow the conditioner to remain in your hair for a minute or two, then rinse it out completely and thoroughly. Limp hair usually occurs when a shampoo or conditioner is not rinsed well from the hair. For longer hair (3” or longer) use a conditioner every time you shampoo. For shorter hair, every other time is perfect. Men with curly hair should really use a conditioner every time they shampoo their hair.

Use the correct styling product for the correct look you want to achieve.


Not all products are a one-size-fits-all-hairstyles kind of thing. Hair length, texture, density, and shape will determine what styling product is right for you. Consult with our stylists, and they’ll explain which styling products are perfect for you.

Use a pomade or grooming spray when you shape your hair with a blow-dryer and brush.


Layrite’s Grooming Spray will create a workable shape and hold when blow-drying your hair, and when layered on top of another styling product will act as a light hold hairspray. Spray onto towel-dried hair and blow-dry the hair into the desired shape. Finish with a few more sprays to help hold your style in place. Also, Original Pomade from Layrite® doubles as a firm hold gel when applied to towel-dried hair and then blow-dried through. When applied lightly, Original Pomade serves as a good leave-in conditioner, especially for men with curly and wavy hair textures.

Don’t overdo it.

Hair_Product_ Amount

Applying too much grooming product or applying it incorrectly isn’t the way to go. If you use a styling product, apply a nickel-size amount, from the back of your hair toward the front. Styling products, known as “finishing products”such as waxes, pomades, clays, or pastes, should be applied to dry hair for a stronger hold, but can also be worked through towel-dried hair for a more “lived-in” appearance.

Buy a real comb... and use it.


Using a quality comb to push and shape your hair into place, has never gone out of style. A comb is THE tool to use if you want to wear a side-part, or if you want to wear your hair up and away from the face. The Groom Room offers and uses high quality, hand polished combs by Kent®.

Apply a grooming spray (hairspray).


After you’ve styled your hair into shape, and you want it to remain that way, Layrite’s Grooming Spray will keep it there and still stay flexible. Their Grooming Spray also makes a fantastic blow-dry lotion (sprayed into damp hair before blow-drying it into shape).
