You might be damaging your hair without even realizing it, especially if you use hair products. But not all of them are made the same. Regardless of your situation, I mean, whether you use any sort of hair product or not, rest assured that Pete and Pedro products will do no harm to your hair. If anything, they will help you achieve a more stylish look. You’ll look more handsome more effortlessly. Who’d be against that?
Pete and Pedro products come with many benefits. For one, they’re very affordable; secondly, they’re very easy to apply; and last but not least, they’re extremely easy to remove. These are water-based products, and they wash out faster than what it takes a person to apply shampoo. It’s that easy.
I learned about Pete and Pedro a few years ago, but it wasn’t until very recently that I acquired my very first product. Now, I wonder what took me so long.
I decided to buy their paste, and it has done wonders for me. As a kid, I used to get regular hair gel. I experimented with ‘holds’ and ‘shines’ of all ranges and all kinds of consistencies, from really high shine to not too shiny, but still too much for my taste – I couldn’t find low or no-shine hair products back then, and I am not sure there were many available, or any at all. On the ‘hold’ side of the spectrum things weren’t much better; low hold products would actually leave my hair with no hold at all, while high hold ones, well…both a porcupine and a pangolin would’ve felt envious.
Because I have medium hair length, I decided to get the Pete and Pedro Paste, and I will be guiding you on which of these products are best suited for your kind of hair, too.
P.S. I’ll be talking about what makes each of these hair products stand out for what they are, but for an easier understanding, I’ve also arranged them in order of how light or strong their hold is.
The lightest of them all. This will give you a very light hold, with a low shine level, and as the name suggests, it has a very creamy consistency. The cream is best suited for long hair and is great for combating frizz as well as keeping the locks smooth throughout the day. Besides, it contains essential oils that will nurture and moisturize your hair.
Upon opening the container, you’ll be greeted with a mild citrus scent and a small hint of coconut combined.
A very versatile hair product. Pete and Pedro’s Clay provides a medium hold that can be used for all hair lengths; and that’s because, rather than length, it’s geared toward thinness. If you have thin hair, this is your best choice. It’ll add the volume you want with neither a shiny nor a greasy finish to it.
Don’t be afraid to use this if you have thick hair, though. You want to be the one in control of your hair, not the other way around. With this clay, freedom will be at your fingertips.
This was my personal pick, and is great for anyone with medium to long hair. Neither your hands nor your hair will feel greasy once you’re done applying it. It’s shininess is very subtle, it has a medium hold and is stiff-free, which makes it fairly malleable and very easy to work with. However, there is a little trick to it. Before applying, you can keep rubbing it in your hands a few seconds more for a slight increase in stiffness.
If you feel the need to re-shape your mane throughout the day, that’s yet another reason why you would want to buy this paste. Also, the smell is not overpowering at all, which I think is a great feature in itself. It has a gentle citrus smell to it.
Your hair will also benefit a lot from using this product because it is infused with essential substances such as coconut and argan oils, which are great moisturizers.
Mostly for short to medium lengths, the pomade has a very high shine level and you can keep your hair under control with it. In your hands, it has a smooth, butter-like consistency, and is quite easy to spread around. While it’s not as strong as other Pete and Pedro hair products, it’s still good at keeping your hair together.
One of the things I like the most about the pomade is its smell. It has this peppermint aroma and gives your head a refreshing sensation. This pomade is also a great revitalizer, as it contains aloe extract.
The Power Pomade
Just like with the pomade, the power pomade targets short to medium hair lengths, except, this one offers a much stronger hold. However, keep in mind that if you have long hair and use the power pomade, you’ll end up finding yourself having to constantly re-accommodate your locks. Using this product will result in an even shinier look compared to that of its brother and maintains its ability to keep the hair under control.
Besides its ‘hold’ intensity, a second major difference between the pomade and the power pomade is that the latter has no scent at all. Nevertheless, it’s still contains aloe and peppermint extracts.
With strong hold and low shine, this is easily one of the best-selling products Pete and Pedro has to offer. I’d recommend the putty especially if you have short to medium hair length. You can immediately tell this product will keep your hair in its place by its waxy consistency. You will be able to rock your hairstyle all day long, even after going to the gym.
As strong of a hold the putty has to offer, you’ll be happy to know that it is very flexible when it comes to malleability. But there is a catch to it. Out of all the products in this list, this is the one that requires the little extra effort to wash out of your hair. Usually, water is all it takes to completely remove these products, but given how waxy this one is, it’ll require the use of shampoo to wash it away in its totality.
The Tools – Classic or Retro
You may use your hands to style your hair, or you may use your favorite comb. Whichever the case is, I recommend you take a look at these if you want a more professional feel while you’re at it. Whether you go classic or retro is your decision, you will not be disappointed by either. They both are very durable, premium-feeling items, and an indispensable addition, in my opinion. I bought the classic version, and I feel very comfortable using it anytime I style my hair.
Options for Everyone
As we’ve learned in the past, we all come in different shapes and sizes. And so does our hair! There is nothing like that feeling of relief when you find out that there really exists something tailored to fit your exact needs. Based on what you’ve just learned, tell me: Which do you think would be the best option for you? I’m curious and it would be fun to know.
