The Mr Red Fox Of London's Definitive Man's Hair Product Guide Part 2

Whatever sort of hair you have, you'll need some assistance to stand out from the crowd. A good barber is essential, but using the right products on your hair is just as important.

Men's hair products have come a long way, and there's something for everyone – heavy, thin, curly, wavy, or otherwise. With this men's hair product guide, we aim to make finding the right items for you easier.

In this second part we Will go into various types of hair care, what they do, and the hair types you can use them on. If you really want your hair to look like a million dollars, you should be acquainted with a range of hair styling items.


Sea salt spray is a spray solution that contains salt and other compounds, as the name implies. You'll notice improved texture, waves, and volume after a day at the beach and a dip in the ocean, for example, because salt water extracts the natural oils in your hair.

Sea salt spray is a relatively newcomer to the styling product world, but it has quickly become a favourite of many men, especially those with medium to long hair.

Sea salt spray has a number of advantages, including the fact that it does not leave your hair feeling greasy, sticky, or hard. Furthermore, sea salt spray can be used to prep and style a number of hair styles, and it has a light to medium hold that helps your (longer) hair to maintain its natural bounce.

Although sea salt spray is best used in the summer, which is when most men use it, there's nothing stopping you from using it all year. It comes in a spray bottle with a pump on top that dispenses the spray: fairly straightforward.

Again, sea salt spray is best for medium to long hair, and you can use it as part of your everyday styling routine, but you should use it in moderation because it can dry out your hair and scalp. If you use it on a regular basis, remember to wash and condition your hair as well.



Purchase a high-quality, all-natural spray, such as our Soho Styling Spray, as your first move. Sea salt spray can be used on wet or dry hair, but it works better on hair that is at least slightly damp. Before spraying it on your hair, vigorously shake the bottle to combine the ingredients, particularly the white clay. Once you've sprayed it on your hair, spread it uniformly with your 

hands and fingers, making sure you get it all the way down to the roots. After that, you can either form your hair with your hands or use a hair dryer to set it in the desired pattern. If you're going to use a hair dryer, set it to medium heat.

You can also use sea salt spray as a "foundation," meaning you can apply it to wet hair before applying any other styling product and then use a stronger hold product to keep your hair in place, if desired.

Another advantage of sea salt spray is that you can quickly reapply it during the day if it begins to wear off.

On longer hair, sea salt spray is an excellent tool for creating a textured look. A hair dryer is also needed. 

To begin, make sure your hair is damp but not overly so. You can air dry it until it's 80 to 90% dry after your shower, but you'll want to leave some dampness because you'll be using your hair dryer after you've applied the spray.

It's better to use a hair dryer with a diffuser attachment and to start with a hotter setting and gradually lower it as your hair dries. It's important to keep your dryer at a safe distance from your hair so that you can apply heat evenly and avoid harm. 

As you dry your hair, crunch it with your fingertips to lock in the waves and textures you like. It will be a free-flowing hold, as opposed to the high-hold found in other products. You want to be able to run your fingers through your hair without looking stiff and like you're wearing a helmet off of which a quarter could bounce.

When you're finished, your hair should be about 95% dry. The textured look is perfect for anyone who wants a natural-looking hairstyle with plenty of movement, despite the fact that it takes a lot of tweaking and adjusting during the process.


Clay is another styling product that has gained popularity in recent years among men. It's made of clay, as the name implies, and has a firmer hold and stickier feel than pomade and most other products.

Clay styling products also provide a variety of other natural ingredients and include a matte to low shine finish to your hair. Bentonite is a common clay used in styling products that is made from volcanic ash that has weathered.

Clay has a number of advantages as a styling tool:

  • It gives hair more thickness and body, making it appear fuller.
  • It absorbs quickly into the hair.
  • Clay aids in the control and maintenance of frizzy hair, which is ideal for men with long or curly hair.
  • Clay pulls dirt and impurities out of the hair without drying out the natural oils.
  • It aids in the repair of damaged hair.

Clay styling products also provide a variety of other natural ingredients and include a matte to low shine finish to your hair. Bentonite is a common clay used in styling products that is made from volcanic ash that has weathered.

Clay has a lower shine and a matte to semi-matte texture, despite having a higher hold factor than many other styling materials. Clay is more difficult to restyle than other items like paste, but it adds texture to the hair.

To achieve the desired look, simply rub a small amount of our Carnaby Clay between your palms and apply it to slightly damp or dry hair.



Fiber isn't the same thing as pomade, paste, or putty. But it's fibre, which, when you think about it, doesn't tell anything. Fiber is similar to hair wax in that it normally includes beeswax and lanolin, but it is in its own group.

When your hair is dry, the best time to add fibre is. It's perfect for thick hair, but if you're looking for something more combable, styling clay may be a better option.

Know this about fibre: it's a no-nonsense styling product for men who know exactly what hairstyle they want and don't want their hair to budge even a little bit throughout the day.
