Hair clay is one of the most versatile and popular styling products for men, and there's a vast array of options on our shop shelves, both virtually and in-store. But which is the best?


Hair clay is a fairly new contender in the hair care market, but it’s incredibly popular and something we’ve all found ourselves using at some point. The styling product contains natural clays (amongst other ingredients) that essentially ‘set’ your hairstyle in place. The clay in the formula grips onto your hair, creating a textured, defined, and volumised look that should hold all day and produce a non-greasy finish.


But we know from experience that many of these strong-hold clays you can pick up in the supermarket or drugstore don’t seem to live up to the promises made on the tub. Halfway through the day, you’ve probably found that your hair is once again flat, and it’s lost that distinct texture you created in the morning. As for the matte finish, it seems more like an oily shine.


Enter our award-winning Hybrid Hair – a unique hybridised clay wax compound that offers the pliability and texture of a hair clay with the hold of a wax. We've harnessed the power of natural ingredients to create a premium formula that'll take your hair game to new levels, helping you achieve effortless and flawless hairstyles easier than ever.


It's become a staple in over 30,000+ men's hair routines across the UK, and we're confident it'll become a favourite in yours, too.

What is Our Hybrid Hair Men’s Hair Clay?

Our Hybrid Hair is an innovative formula that fuses the benefits of both hair clay and wax. It's unlike any other hair product out there, and we spent two years perfecting the formulation before bringing it to you.


We collaborated and worked closely with Britain’s leading cosmeceutical scientists to create a product that performs not just on one level, but on multiple levels. 


The compound's clay characteristics provide a natural finish and a strong hold, keeping your hairstyle in place all day or all night. At the same time, the wax elements smooth any pesky frizz and nourish your hair for a healthy, fuller look.


It works effectively on all hair types, from thin and straight to thick and curly, so you can tame your trim no matter what your hair is like. And unlike many other hair products, it doesn't leave any sticky residue or greasy build-up – a problem we, too, faced before creating this formula.

What Ingredients Are in Our Formula & How Does it Work?

The reason we spent years formulating this product is because we wanted to create something that not only works but is also incredibly beneficial for your hair.


Hybrid Hair contains a blend of superior quality ingredients, including:

  • Organic British Beeswax – We use organic British beeswax sourced from ethical and sustainable beekeeping practices. This natural ingredient smooths down flyaways and frizz while creating a natural appearance.

  • Icelandic Bentonite Clay – This clay is formed from rare volcanic ash in Iceland and offers unmatched styling hold. It also contributes to the appearance of fuller, thicker hair.

  • Organic Arabian Aloe Vera – Aloe vera is a well-known botanical that helps nourish and strengthen hair. It contains enzymes that work to repair dead scalp skin cells, promoting a healthy scalp for optimal hair growth.

  • Unrefined Atlantic Sea Salt – This sea salt absorbs excess oil and adds texture, giving hair an effortless look. It also contains numerous minerals that help nourish the scalp and promote healthy hair growth.

  • Vitamin E – A common yet essential ingredient in hair care, vitamin E helps maintain a healthy scalp and promotes hair growth. It also has antioxidant properties that help protect against environmental damage.

These ingredients work alongside each other to create a powerful formula that styles and looks after your hair.

Customer Stories & Reviews

If there's one way to prove how brilliant this product is, it's through the stories and reviews of you, our customers. We've had numerous 5-star reviews from men who have seen amazing results from using our Hybrid Hair compound...

"Finally found my perfect product. Nothing to say more, just pure quality, nice application and everything on point. You won’t regret buying it."

Catalin on Jan 01, 2024

"I’ve been using this product for 3 years now so I’ve decided it’s time for a review. At the time I'd never spent more than maybe £8 or £9 on a hair product but I kept seeing it all over the place and finally gave in to the marketing claims. The best hair product I’ve ever used after 10+ years of experimenting with different types and brands!

Easy to apply, great matte finish and isn’t greasy or sticky. Easy to wash out of hair and off hands, I’ve been able to style my hair and keep it as is for a couple of days and it still looks clean and fresh! I’ve only used this from the brand so far but will be ordering this with the salt spray bundle next time."

"Arrived today and used for the first time and all I can say is it's a great product. A small amount was enough to style thick hair and hold just how I wanted where it took me 3 different products to get the same effect before. Was a recommendation and it did not disappoint. "

Ross Jardine on Jun 06, 2023

"I recently bought 'The Master Collection' and this was the standout product from the whole set. I love all the others but this one was just amazing and exactly what I've been looking for."

Neil Williams on Nov 09, 2022

We've even been lucky enough to be featured in some of the top magazines and blogs for our exceptional product. Hybrid Hair was even named by GQ as one of the best hair waxes for men – one we're extremely proud of.

How to Use Our Hybrid Hair Compound

We've also made our styling compound as easy to use as it is effective because we believe that taking care of your hair and looking your best shouldn't be complicated.


You can use the clay on both damp and dry hair depending on your styling preference and whenever you need to refresh your look.


Step 1) Take a small amount of the product and rub it between your hands to warm it up.


Step 2) Apply it evenly throughout your hair, making sure to work through each strand for maximum hold and texture.


Step 3) Leave your hair to air dry if you prefer a more natural look, or use a blow dryer for added volume and control.


If you want to add more texture to specific pieces of your hair, go back into the product with your fingertips and apply it to those areas. This will give you a more piecey, textured look, which we love for a more edgy and modern vibe.


We recommend using this wonder product alongside our Marine Mist sea salt spray for an easy everyday style.

What is the Best Hair Clay for Men's Thin Hair?

Our Hybrid Hair clay is the perfect solution for men with thin hair. It provides a strong hold and can grip on to even the finest strands, giving your hair a fuller and thicker appearance. Plus, its lightweight formula won't weigh down your hair or make it look greasy, something we know is important for men with thin hair.

What is the Difference Between Hybrid Hair & a Standard Hair Clay?

Our Hybrid Hair combines the properties of both a hair clay and wax, resulting in a product that is more versatile and can cater to a wider range of hair types. With standard hair clays, you may need to use multiple products to achieve the same results that our Hybrid Hair can provide.

How Often Should I Use a Hair Clay?

You can use our hair clay wax daily, as it is gentle on the hair and won't cause any damage or build-up when used in moderation.

Should Hair Clay Be Used on Wet or Dry Hair?

You can use the hair compound on both wet and dry hair. We know some men's hair is easier to style when it's damp, while others might find it easier to work with dry hair, so our product is designed to work well in both scenarios.
