Being a man with good-looking hair shouldn’t have to be difficult. Celebrities look as if they simply woke up, rolled out of bed, and just happened to have the best bedhead of all time, but we can promise you that’s not the case. In reality, it’s the combination of a glam team and great product that makes their artful ‘do look so sexy and disheveled.

On the hunt for our best hair products for men? Stop what you’re doing and pay attention, because we’re going to make this really clear for you: one of the keys to male grooming is a light, multipurpose product. Our go-to pick from the L’Oréal portfolio of brands is Baxter of California’s Clay Effect Style Spray.

What makes Clay Effect Style Spray different from every other product?

Questions like this set the savvy man apart from those who are willing to spend their hard-earned dollars on just any product. Simply put, Clay Effect is a multi-use product that’s high quality—and that’s not to mention the attractive, sleek packaging. Whether you’re applying it pre-blow dry, on its own for styling, or use Clay Effect in combination with Baxter of California pomades to finish you look, you’ll love the way your hair looks in the mirror.

Asked what makes Clay Effect a standout in the barbershop, Diaz has a simple answer: the formula.

Clay Effect Style Spray is formulated with moisturizing jojoba oil and antioxidant-packed green tea extract, and can help maximize the appearance of your effortless, lived-in style.

Gritty-looking hair isn’t just for the girls, anymore—now is the time for men to make bedhead look cool. A little shine, a little grip, and you’ll be surprised at how red carpet you can appear.

Furthermore, all this look doesn’t come at the expense of comfort. Clay Effect is lightweight, so it won’t feel heavy or weigh down your style.

“The texture of the product is also very reminiscent of water and easy to apply and use."

You heard it here first, folks.

Who should use Clay Effect Style Spray?

We think you’ll probably have figured out the answer to that, but it’s a resounding “everyone.” On one hand, the spray is an excellent choice for hair product beginners. The world of men’s styling is not only intimidating, but also exclusionary. Unless you’re a male celebrity or particularly dapper, you may not have any idea where to start.

If we’re essentially talking about you, grab your wallet. Clay Style Effect is an all-in-one product that can help you look effortlessly put together. Plus, the 4-ounce glass bottle is the perfect size to throw right in your gym bag if you’re frequently getting dressed at after your morning workouts. Simply shampoo, condition, towel dry, and spritz on Clay Effect.

“Apply [Clay Effect Style Spray] to damp hair and let the product air dry for [an]…unkempt style,” Diaz says.

It’s that easy.

On the other hand, however, product gurus shouldn’t overlook the benefits of Clay Effect Style Spray. If you’re more of a blow dry man than the kind who lets his strands air out, consider adding the product to your morning routine. According to Diaz, it plays nicely with heat styling and won’t appear excessive.

“Apply Clay Effect to lightly dampened hair and blow dry it into a desired style,” he says.

Find yourself somewhere between a total amateur and a pro? Don’t panic. Diaz also suggests Clay Effect as the ideal partner of that fresh trim feeling. Who doesn’t want to show off a stylish new cut?

How do the pros use Clay Effect Style Spray?

Once you’ve figured out that the product is most certainly for you, it’s time to ask the most important question: How do hair professionals use this to make their clients look good? Those are the most important styling tips, after all.

Diaz swaps Clay Effect Style Spray in for hairsprays or other texturizing products when he’s working in the barbershop. His application is about as worry-free as it gets—which says something about how easy the matte product is to use.

“I've applied [Clay Effect], as of late, while the hair is semi damp,” he explains. “I spray the hair with four to five sprays all throughout the hair. I then blow dry it into a loose side part with the hair containing a medium amount of volume. Then I finish it off with a little of our Hard Cream Pomade. This combination has been a favorite of mine as of late when it comes to introducing it to all of my clients.”

Do like the pros would, using the spray in combination with heat, or play around with it to find what works for you. Either way, you’re going to experience good hair days once you find the styling tricks that work best on your particular mane.
