Over the past decade, men’s grooming has grown to become a multibillion-dollar industry, with a wide variety of products to choose from. So, when it comes to choosing the right grooming products, it can be hard to know where to start.
At Cutter’s Yard, we are proud to partner with Aveda and both use their products and stock them for sale in our barbershops. From shampoo to pomade, Aveda Men provides simple but highly effective products for all your grooming needs.
To help you find the best men’s grooming products, here are some of our favourites from Aveda.
Shampoo and Conditioner
Using an expertly formulated shampoo can make all the difference to your hair. It’s important to find one that suits your hair condition and texture.
If you suffer from an itchy scalp, we recommend using the Aveda Pure-Formance™ Shampoo. It will leave your scalp feeling calmer, healthier, less irritated and less itchy. For extra nourishment and shine, you can follow up your shampoo with the Aveda Pure-Formance™ Conditioner.
In general, you should only condition your hair one to two times per week. But you may need to do it more frequently if you have longer or drier hair.
For thinning hair, we recommend the Aveda Invati Men™ Nourishing Exfoliating Shampoo. It will cleanse and exfoliate the scalp with wintergreen-derived salicylic acid to remove build-up that can clog pores.
You can also follow this up with the Aveda Invati Men™ Scalp Revitaliser which is a leave-in scalp treatment containing amla and instantly thickens your hair at the root and invigorates your scalp.
When you need your hairstyle to last all day long, clay offers the essential strength needed to hold it firmly in place. For texture with a strong, pliable hold and matte finish, we suggest using the Aveda Pure-Formance™ Grooming Clay.
With a lightweight formula, it gives you the control need to create any style with a comb or with your fingers.
Whether you want to tidy up your beard or get rid of unwanted hair, a good quality shaving cream is an essential men’s grooming product. We love the Aveda Pure-Formance™
Shave Cream which preps skin for a close, comfortable shave.
It contains an exclusive phyto-active blend with naturally derived ingredients and is specifically designed for men’s skin.
If you’re looking for a natural product to soothe your skin after shaving, we love the Aveda Pure-Formance™ Dual Action Aftershave.
This high performance, lightweight moisturiser alleviates irritation and prevents outbreaks with a spearmint scent. It can even be used as a moisturiser on the days you don’t shave.
If you have dry hair or want a flexible hold, pomade is the styling product for you. The Aveda Pure-Formance™ Pomade provides strong, pliable hold with excellent control.
This water-based, non-greasy formula hydrates, while adding texture and definition. Generally, you should apply pomade to towel-dried hair and only use a pinky sized amount to start with. You may need to build this up depending on your hair length, thickness and how much hold you want.
If you’re looking for maximum hold for your hairstyle, hair gel is the best option. Our favourite is the Aveda Pure-Performance™ Firm Hold Gel, a lightweight styling gel which delivers maximum hold and shine.
We also like that it contains UVA protectors which help to protect your hair from sun damage. Similarly to other styling products, you should only use a small dab of this product and rub together before applying to damp hair.
