Ditch the gel already!

If you’re looking to try something new and want to achieve a more natural look of your hair, then we would suggest looking at pomades, waxes, and clays

And you will be impressed with the results. 

There are tons of great products for your hair out there, absolute classics such as Hanz de Fuko Claymation or Baxter of California Clay Pomade, or the new ones. Like Hydroclay and ShapeShifter from relatively new company Mack for Men. 

History of Mack for Men

Mack for Men was founded by two guys frustrated by the hair products they used. And because they didn’t like the unnatural look of some products and the chemicals inside, they decided to create their own hair products. 

Mack for Men’s products are different because they are chock full of organic and natural ingredients that are actually healthy and nourishing for your hair. While they offer excellent hold and control, they still leave your hair looking natural.

Mack for Men makes two hair styling products: ShapeShifter pomade and HydroClay hair clay.
