It's not every day that we get to announce a brand new range of (straight?) grooming products for guys, and we're hyped for this one! Fresh from the Sebastian Professional team, SEB MAN (@SEBMANOFFICIAL) is a complete range of salon-ready hair care, styling, and grooming products, for men who refuse to be categorised, and we have to admit that we're already head over heels for most of the range. After spending a few days planning with a high-key spectacular collection of tonics, styling gels, and beard oils, we figured it was high time we let you take a sneak peek at the whole kit. and maybe introduce you to some of the more specialist products. We'll probably spend a lot of time gushing about how some of the lotions and oils would make for the perfect birthday gifts - not to mention enthusing about the undeniably sophisticated scent of bergamot and pink pepper that infuses some of these bad boys - but we'll also be dropping some super important deets and keying you into our top picks so buckle up, and get ready to meet the new crew...
A real workhorse. The Multi-Tasker is a 3-in-1 hair, beard and body wash that promises to be an everyday essential. It's packed with deeply cleansing ingredients that help to lift dirt and grime away from your hair, and it's also loaded with guarana extract: a potent source of caffeine that's approximately twice as strong as your average coffee bean. Wondering why you'd want caffeine in your shampoo? Turns out that this powerful little stimulant does a lot more than just wake you up in the morning. It's also been shown to reinvigorate tired skin and stimulate hair growth, which makes this 3-in-1 shampoo a must-have for anyone who wants to keep their hair looking thick, full, and well-nourished.
Formulated using Aloe Vera; caffeine and Paullinia Cupana Seed Extract. The Purist is purpose-built to fight dandruff and irritation. It’s super soft on sensitive skin, and it helps to tackle the root cause of several different skin conditions; keeping your scalp healthy and your hair looking super clean. It’s an ideal choice for anyone that struggles with the harsh detergents found in most men's shampoo, and it’s also a great choice for anyone that’s looking to detox tired hair.
Conditioners & Tonics
Lots of guys neglect conditioner, but it's the key to #effortless hair and The Smoother? Well, let's just say it's one of the best men's conditioners we've ever sampled. Much like The Multi-Tasker, it's designed to be an everyday product that you slap on, then rinse out in the shower. And ofc it works. A small (pea-sized) dollop is enough to add instant moisture to your hair, not to mention "completely" eradicating frizzy, dry, or lifeless hair. Once we started using it on the reg, we found that it made our hair way (way) easier to style, and we spent less time trying to get that salon-fresh finish every morning. The inclusion of highly-caffeinated guarana helps to wake your scalp too.
This is low-key our favorite product in the new Seb Man range. It's a leave-in tonic that's designed to have a super-subtle effect on your hair; adding a little bit of texture, and a "whole" lot of definition to your locks - perfect for finishing off a high-key bouffant style or adding something extra to that flawless high fade… Best of all though? The Cooler smells incredible. Zesty, spicy bergamot and a heaped dose of pink pepper give it a super-fresh vibe, and we swear it makes your scalp tingle as it goes on. If you’re looking for the ultimate date-night wingman, this stuff is the bomb.
A styling clay with all the mod cons, this stuff is an absolute dream to use. It contains bentonite - a mineral extract that helps to volumize your hair, as well as adding a feathery-soft texture that’s all but guaranteed to turn heads. Better still, this superpowered styling clay actually helps to detox and purify your hair whenever you wash it out - adding lustre and shine that simply cannot be beaten. It might not have the hold of a traditional hair gel, but we can’t recommend this stuff highly enough. Especially if your hair could do with a bit of TLC.
Need something a little #extra? If so, this is the stuff. Offering a medium-to-light hold with a highly-polished finish, this stuff is made for slicked-back styles or gently-tousled locks. Think Ryan Reynolds; John Mayer or Leonardo Di Caprio and you won’t be far off base. Best of all though? The Dandy’s super-luxurious formula adds a tonne of extra body and volume to your hair, which makes it a style essential in our eyes. Particularly if you’re angling for something loud and bouffant.
Forget about John Mercer; this stuff is like Pulp Fiction’s Winston Wolfe - but for your hair. A mega-hold spray that offers 24 hour humidity protection, a quick spritz of The Fixer will lock your style in place, and keep it there until you jump back into the shower. It's got some serious oomph, but it doesn't leave a nasty build-up in your hair and it also offers reworkable hold so that you can duck into the nearest bathroom, and fluff up your hair halfway through the night. Oh and the scent? You guessed it. Bergamot and pink pepper. Need we say more?
Lotions & Balms
A sophisticated (and undeniably elegant) blend of grape seed; jojoba; almond and Argan, this top-notch oil will add instant texture and shine to your hair (or beard!) It’s super soft and incredibly luxurious, which makes it the *perfect* match for date-night looks, and a great wingman for those super-special occasions... It’s also incredibly effective when it comes to conditioning your hair; coating each, individual strand to provide (incredibly controlled) definition and shine. If you want something that’ll take your hair to the next level, this is the stuff.
A soothing, post-shave balm with a fresh and spicy scent, The Gent’s a must-have hair product for SS19. It’ll leave your skin feeling incredibly - touchably- soft after every shave, as well as soothing any unsightly irritation. Best of all though, The Gent’s enriched with the same guarana extract that’s found in The Milti_Tasker and The Smoother. This caffeine-rich ingredient helps to stimulate hair growth and revitalise damaged skin; boosting blood flow to problem areas and helping to wake you up first thing in the morning. It’s a one-of-a-kind shave balm, and one of those products that we keep coming back to. Time after time.
