Perhaps one of the most versatile formulas out there, a pomade can add texture, calm flyaways or – if you go in heavy – create a sleek look. This one offers a strong, mouldable hold – simply apply it to slightly wet or dry hair then brush it out and into a bun or ponytail for best results.

Lightweight but promising a silky, glossy finish, this shine spray is so easy to apply. While it won’t tame frizz and flyaways, it will intensify the luminosity of dry hair once it’s met with a bit of heat from a hairdryer or straightening iron. Perfect if you want to tame loose strands or broken hairs.

Hairstylists will always recommend thicker, coarser hair types use a gel – its strong hold keeps things put. But if you want to get the wet look, it’s also a no brainer. This one is seriously moisturising thanks to a blend of Brazilian pequi oil and antioxidant-rich açaí extract and hydrating aloe vera. So while it will keep flyaways at bay, it’s also deeply conditioning. Bonus.

Available in an easy-to-use wand, this product looks a little bit like a mascara. Ideal for on-the-go touch-ups, simply style your hair, then use the wand to brush any rogue strands back into place as the day goes on.

There are a couple of pomade sticks floating around right now, but this one from R+Co is our favourite. The brand has an extensive line of treatment-oriented products, and this one makes the slicked-back look so simple. Style your hair as usual, then go in with the stick to smooth flyaways and keep stray strands at bay. Alternatively, apply some to the palms of your hands and scrunch it in to create a beachy texture.

Unlike most of the entries on this list, this product works on wet hair as well as dry hair. Designed to be a smoothing serum, simply apply it to wet strands before blasting everything with a hairdryer and watch as it creates a silkier-looking finish.
