If you’ve got a moustache, you should be using moustache wax. This niche product is created using natural ingredients (usually, although be sure to double-check!), designed to shape and sculpt your facial hair, mainly your pride and joy, your moustache.
Moustache wax has a sticky but smooth texture, allowing you to shape your moustache for the entire day with one application, usually in the morning. It is very similar to hair wax products, but specifically designed for your facial hair.
Most waxes are created with beeswax, creating that high-hold and long-lasting finish. Some waxes use slightly different ingredients, but all share the same purpose. If you want to look your best, shaping your facial hair how you please, then this product is for you.
The remainder of this blog post will discuss why you should use moustache wax, in case you aren’t already convinced.
Moustache wax is different from hair wax
Hair wax and other hold related products are specifically designed for the hair. These are not intended to be applied to the facial hair. Your facial hair is very different from the hair on your hand, and therefore, needs its own product and attention.
For instance, using regular shampoo on a beard strips a beard of its natural oils, resulting in dry skin and beard dandruff. Although somewhat different, your facial hair and moustache go through a lot more than the hair on your head. For example, eating, drinking, and instinctively touching your face, has the potential to mess up your look.
Moustache wax provides a stronger hold throughout the day, allowing you to carry on as normal but look your best with minimal effort.
Applying the wax
If you’ve ever used a beard wax or shaping product, then the application is similar. However, if using a stronger wax, such as beeswax, you may need to heat the wax up before use. This isn’t as complicated as it sounds; simply leave on a radiator for a couple of minutes or put in your pocket before use.
After the first few uses, you will no longer need to heat this up. You should also rub the wax between your fingers, slowly working this into your moustache and shaping how you see fit. However, unlike other products, you should wash out the wax each day to prevent this from clogging your pores.
To do this, you should use a high-quality beard shampoo, such as beard shampoo. Cleanliness is key here, helping to keep your facial hair and skin under your moustache and beard healthy.
Moustache wax allows you to shape your moustache and facial hair for a long-lasting hold throughout the day. Tame those uncontrollable hairs on your lip into a masterpiece, allowing you to feel confident and ready to crush the day.
