The Best Hair Creams to Keep Your Locks Looking Lustrous All Day Long

Finding the perfect product for your type of hair can be kind of a daunting task. If this is going to be the thing that finally takes you from a haplessly intolerable dude with decent hair to a haplessly intolerable dude with really good hair, there’s a lot of pressure not to mess it up. I mean, fuck a personality, man: When you’ve found the one true bad-hair-day panacea nothing else really matters, does it?

If going weeks without a trip to your barber is starting to make you think you should’ve read a few more books while you were coasting along on the strength of your hair alone, don’t you worry your pretty little head: We’ve rounded-up a few of the best hair creams around to keep your lettuce looking as luscious as it used to be before lockdown life. If hair cream isn’t already an essential element of your grooming regimen, it should be. Heavier than a mousse but lighter than a gel, hair cream can double as a no-frills conditioning treatment, or a styling product ideal for the shaggier look you’re trying to make the most of (or for any medium or longer hairstyles, really).

Get with the program, guy. Treat yourself to a hair cream that’ll restore your ‘do to the glory of days bygone and bring back the good grooming that allowed you to avoid reading anything longer than a precisely worded text message your entire life, you beautiful bastard.
