Pomade vs. Gel: What You Need to Know

Pomade vs. Gel: What You Need to Know 

 

The age-old battle rages on between Pomade and Gel. It’s a hair hack every man should know, and although the notion may seem ubiquitous, do not be fooled by the clichés of styling products. Pomades and Gels are both uniquely built for the everyday man’s hair. Just ask Miami’s best stylists at RM Salon

Let’s find the right product to shape your stylish look. 

According to NPR  “Hair pomade enjoyed its highest popularity from the 1930s through the 1960s, when many men’s hairstyles were short and neat but needed help staying put.” After going through a product-free phase in the 80s, pomade is back with a vengeance! 

Decade after decade, this styling tool has morphed into a grooming staple. Pomades’ water-based infrastructure can help keep styles lightweight. Although Pomades come in cream, wax, or clay finishes, try applying a matte coating, to wet or dry hair, for more flexible everyday wear. 

Gel is a classic product delivering an all-day hold. In years past ingredients like alcohol composed gel, yielding distressing shellacked-like features. Now gel is an ideal product for men with wavy or curly hair, it maintains hold without the weight that is characterized by pomades. Our RM stylists suggest applying gel to tame locks when hair is damp. Just a little touch of gel can add a lot of shine for a sleek Hollywood look. 

Our leading RM stylists wish to remind you that a pea-sized amount of Pomade or Gel is always a good start when trying to achieve a natural look!

Must Have Deep Conditioners for Fine Hair

Must Have Deep Conditioners for Fine Hair 

 

Natural oils have treated hair throughout the centuries; but, in the 1800s Édouard Pinaud formulated Brilliantine. Developed for men’s beards, Brilliantine was the framework for the conditioner we use today. 

Shampoos clean sweat and dead skin cells from your scalp, while conditioners work to deliver softer hair and protect from friction between strands. Supercharged deep conditioners boost the overall vitality as the treatments penetrate the hair shaft to enrich hair with moisture. 

Top 3 Deep Conditioners: 

  1. Kérastase – Resistance Mask for Damaged Hair 

Kérastase’s Resistance Mask repairs and provides deep nourishment for weak and damaged hair; while shielding strands against breakage. Formulated with Native Plant Cells and Gluco Peptides, the Resistance Mask enters the hair cuticle and strengthens the root to stimulate growth. A little goes a long way, so apply the mask to wet hair and leave it on for 5 minutes before rinsing.

  1. OUAI Treatment Masque 

Ready for the ultimate treatment mask? Yes, OUAI! Designed with artichoke leaf extract, this mask hydrates and repairs damage to fine hair. OUAI’s reputation shines through this mask, with conditioning damage control that mends split ends and prevents color from fading. It is a GOAT of treatment masks.

  1. OLAPLEX No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner 

OLAPLEX is world-renowned for restoring damaged hair; whether environmental or thermal factors were the cause, OLAPPLEX’s chemical breakdown works at pairing with the single sulfur hydrogen bond faster than the three oxygen molecules can. No matter your hair type, the No.5 conditioner infuses moisture into strands. 

We would be remiss if we forget to mention, RM’s top stylists on Miami Beach suggest ONLY using deep conditioning treatments 2-4 times per month. 

Take your dreams and your conditioner choice seriously!

Clarifying Shampoos

Clarifying Shampoos 

Clarifying shampoos free your hair of residue and toxic buildup that oils and styling products leave behind. If you feel your hair looks a bit dull and lifeless, bring in backup. Designed to deep-clean the hair and scalp, they have a reputation for stripping hair, so use caution. A good rule of thumb is to use a clarifying shampoo when needed, at max once every month. If you are color-treating your hair, consult with your RM concierge before using any clarifying products that may adversely affect your color. 

RM’s Top 5 Clarifying Shampoos: 

  1. Oribe the Cleanse Clarifying Shampoo
               Oribe’s Clarifying Shampoo is a clarifying mouse formulated with volcanic ash and sea kelp extract that not only lathers your locks but eliminates buildup.

  1. Moroccanoil Clarifying Shampoo
             Moroccanoil is a cult favorite, and the clarifying shampoo does not disappoint. The shampoo’s profound cleaning powers curated with argan and avocado oil restore a healthy balance to your scalp.

  1. R+Co OBLIVION Clarifying Shampoo
              OBLIVION is OBVIOUSLY amazing! Sicilian lemon, eucalyptus, green tea, and rosemary leaf extract burst in this R+Co clarifying shampoo to remove residue and build-up in the roots of our hair caused by environmental elements and styling products.

  1. OUAI Detox Shampoo
              Are you looking for a fresh start? OUAI’s Detox formula detoxifies your scalp with apple cider vinegar to cleanse away dirt, oil, and impurities. OUAI’s secret ingredient is keratin, which restores hair simultaneously.

  1. Kinky-Curly Come Clean Shampoo
            Here’s your chance to COME CLEAN. Kinky-Curly’s exclusive blend of mandarin orange extract cleans your hair and scalp build-up while removing and preventing the future accumulation of hard water minerals in your hair.

Healthy Foods for Healthier Hair

Nourishing the mind, body, and spirit work in unison to help your skin, hair, and nails shine bright. In short, your diet MATTERS when it comes to healthy hair. Nutrients are the building blocks of keratin. Keratin can be found in protein-rich foods like lentils, Greek yogurt, poultry, nuts, and quinoa. These proteins are the building blocks for a healthy lifestyle, working to smooth your strands and keep your locks looking full and glossy. With the help of the best hair salon in Miami Beach and the top hairstylists in Miami at Red Market, of course! 

 

According to O The Oprah Magazine, fusing superfoods into your diet helps hair growth. Superfoods like biotin proteins found in eggs and almonds help to prevent hair loss, collagen from fruits like guava and strawberries strengthen locks, and Omega-3 fatty acids from salmon and chia seeds promote growth. 

 

Consuming fresh fruits and vegetables bursting with antioxidants nourish your hair, skin, and nails from the inside out. Vitamins found in leafy greens and delectable fruits act as supplements to boost your hair health. Deficiencies in vitamins such as vitamin d, iron, and zinc make hair brittle, cause shedding, and stunt hair growth.

We reached out to Domonique Ebra ( @consciously.vegan )who gave us an incredible vegan hair mask recipe.

DIY Nourishing Hair mask:
– 1/2 Banana
– 1 Avocado
– 1 tablespoons of coconut oil

Blend ingredients, apply to hair from roots to end, let sit for 30mins then rinse!

Consuming nutritious food is one way to benefit hair health, but you can also use superfoods to create hair masks. The Institute for Integrative Nutrition highlights a unique mask using proteins found in raw eggs for an at-home topical treatment that stimulates hair growth. Once a week, massage a beaten egg into your scalp, let the mask set in your hair for 15 minutes giving the proteins time to revitalize your follicles, then jump in the shower and wash your hair!

Hair is history

The appearance of people regardless of their origin, speaks for itself, from the costumes to the way of wearing the hair express a particular language, if we look around and focus on how people wear their hair, we could deepen even more than what It simply looks.

Long hair, for example, has been represented in different cultures and history has shown it for a long time, having long hair is a sign that is cling to the identity, but what does identity have to do with hair length?

Before answering the question, it is important to highlight the events and characters that have shown the importance of long hair. In religion for example, Sanson’s long hair keeps his great strength, in Greek mythology: Zeus, Venus and Apollo also defined his appearance with large extensions of hair, like the Indians or Rastafari or SIKH and many other cultural groups that avoid cutting hair alluding to their roots, their ancestors, the symbolism in their culture, long hair is a life to be told in each strand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long hair has a great bond with self-image because that image is part of the construction of identity and that identity acts as a reflection of traditions, riches, beliefs, power, to make a statement, it is a reflection of protection, of remembrance, it is a memory and it is history… which define us as individuals but at the same time includes us in society.

If you are looking for a romantic updo hairtsyle to complete your look on your next date night in Miami, read on to learn 5 great techniques for bringing some romance to your hairstyle in Miami. Each of these looks is simple, yet can elevate your everyday hair to something special.

  • French Twist

The french twist is a classic style that is best for hair that is chin length or longer. It is an easy style to accomplish by pulling the hair into a low ponytail and then twisting up and hiding the ends back inside. This style is simple, traditional and beautiful.

  • Low Bun

Soften the look of a tight, high bun by moving the style lower and keeping the edges loose. This look is simple, yet elegant, and is a great way to add some variety to your evening look.

  • Side-Swept Chignon

A side-swept chignon brings unexpected elegance. Easily achieve this look by starting with a side part and bringing the hair into a low ponytail on the same side as the part. Twist the hair until it starts to form a bun, and secure. Soften this look by pulling out some front pieces, and you have achieved an easy yet elevated updo.

  • High Ponytail

A high ponytail doesn’t immediately sound like a romantic updo, but a few tweaks can make this style classic and romantic. It also helps to cool you down on those humid Miami nights. Make this look work by creating big, loose curls in the ponytail. Tie with a ribbon and soften the hair in the front, and you have a ponytail worthy of a kiss goodnight.

  •  Braided Crown

Braids are timeless, and this style pulls them into a crown that is sure to complete your look. Starting with a deep part, begin braiding back on the larger side with two or three smaller braids. Finish by braiding back the smaller side, and weaving the ends under and securing with bobby pins. Make sure the braids are loose to achieve a soft, romantic look for an easy and simple Miami Hairstyle.

These are just 5 great ideas to get you thinking about your next date night hairstyle. An updo is a great way to get out of your usual hair routine and create a special look for a special occasion.
