Nail your styling every day with our guy’s guide for getting your hair products just right

Getting the right amount of hair product can be tricky – after all, you can’t just wash it off the way you’d wash your hands if you squeezed out too much shaving foam. Overload your hair and you’re looking at hopping back in the shower, and ain’t nobody got time for that. Here’s how much you should really be using…

How much shampoo to use

The amount you use depends on lots of things: how long and thick your hair is, how dirty it is… So, as a rough guide, if your hair is thin or short, a blueberry-sized dollop will do. Thicker, longer, curlier or I’ve-been-at-a-festival-for-a-week-with-no-shower needs more like a walnut size.

How much mousse to use

The airy texture of mousse means you often need more than you’d think. Every single strand of hair should be coated with mousse, which means two golf balls at least, rising to a hat trick if your hair is very thick.


How much wax to use

This is the most commonly misapplied product, as just a tiny bit too much wax and your hair will take on chip-pan proportions. You only want wax to define, so go sparingly, starting with the size of a chewing-gum piece, then add more if you think you need it.

How much serum to use

Yeah, you guessed it – this is also to do with your hair type. Less is more with thinner or finer hair as it’ll soak up the serum and look greasy. Try two grains of rice to start, then double it if your hair is thicker or curly.
