Cowlicks are a common feature of hair. The cowlick is a clockwise cowlick that most men do on their back left side. This is the area that I’ve had trouble styling for almost every client.
It is unlikely that you will be able to fight against your crown and cowlicks, particularly if you have thick hair. It will either stick straight up or spread out all over the place, and it can seem like it has its own mind.
There is no product that works, so many people cut corners to avoid having to deal. Do not do this. Instead, do this:
Let’s discuss how to manage your cowlick.
These monsters can be controlled by following their natural flow. You can find the direction that your cowlick or crown wants to lay in and comb it that way.
If the hair sticks straight up, it is best to have it combed in the wrong direction. Every cowlick has a central point, similar to the eye of a hurricane. Let the hair flow naturally around that point once you have found it.
First, determine the location of the cowlick’s center.
Second step: Dry your hair and use a product to keep it in place.
Step 3: Comb your hair in a circular pattern around the middle. If your hair is sticking up, you can comb it in the opposite direction.
Side note: Don’t ask your barber for a cut unless you go to the barber at least once a week and have a very short haircut.
If you have trouble getting your crown to lay down, it is a big mistake that I see new stylists and barbers make.
You must have long hair so that it can lay naturally.
I don’t want to get started about how crown crop affects your overall hairstyle and head shape.
To truly manage your crown, you need to find the best way to lay it and then comb it in that direction. To see your back clearly, use a handheld mirror if you have difficulty seeing. Continue moving the mirror from one side to another until you find the right pattern for it to lay in.
Heavy-duty hold products
A strong-hold product is another way to keep those swirls in place.
To ensure that your hair dries correctly, I recommend using a blow-dryer. Hair will dry in the same direction as it was when it dried so be sure to dry it in that direction.
Pomade will hold your hair in place for the entire day. The product is very waxy so you will need to scoop it with your thumb. Once that’s done, it’s easy to use.
I hope this helps you to take back control of your cowlick!
