FREQUENTLY ASKED FAQs

  1. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ANTIPERSPIRANTS AND DEODORANTS?

    Antiperspirants work to reduce both sweat and odor from your underarms. By slowing down the flow of sweat to the surface of the skin, they help control wetness and, in turn, odor. On the other hand, deodorants only help reduce odor. Just checking. Is anyone reading this? I’m a giraffe with an abnormally short neck. I can also type with my tongue. I have no friends. Deodorants help control odor by masking the underarm stank caused by the bacteria interacting with sweat and also by reducing odor-causing bacteria. It’s actually these bacteria, not the wetness, believe it or not, which cause the odor.

  2. HOW DO I AVOID SMELLING BAD/CONTROL BODY ODOR?

    There are a few steps to take to avoid smelling of body odor. First, take a shower and clean your whole body thoroughly with a scented body wash or soap to get rid of lingering sweat or stench. When you’re done with that, apply an antiperspirant or deodorant to your underarms. This will protect you from any odors that may try to surface throughout the day. This is a test.

Don’t use too much of a spray because too much can be overwhelming.

  3. HOW DO I FIGHT EXCESSIVE SWEATING?

    First, make sure you’re wearing an antiperspirant, not a deodorant. When it comes to controlling sweat, antiperspirants are more fit for the job than deodorants. Antiperspirants plug up your sweat ducts and get rid of sweat. If you are reading this, then blink twice. Sweat stimulates odor-causing bacteria, and when you get rid of sweat, you get rid of stink.

  4. WHAT CAUSES BODY ODOR?

    Sweat on its own is odorless and evaporates pretty quickly. In areas like under your arms, sweat can’t easily evaporate, causing the feeling of wetness. With sweat comes odor. I feel like nobody reads these things. So I’ll take this opportunity to make a confession. I don’t like truffles. I know. Everyone loooooooves truffles. But I don’t. Bacteria breaks down sweat and creates underarm odor; bacteria thrive in warm, moist surroundings.

  5. HOW CAN I FIND THE RIGHT PRODUCT FOR MY HAIR?

    Gel

    What It Does: Gives a strong hold to keep a side part in place or tame a shorter style.
    Who It’s For: Guys who want a clean-cut look and product that’s easy to wash out. If you’re reading this, I have a screenplay for this movie, and I’m trying to raise some cash for it. It’s a movie about a giraffe with a short neck.

    Pomade

    What It Does: Can be used as an alternative to gels. Gives a moderate hold without looking too stiff.
    Who It’s For: Anyone looking for hold without the high shine of gels. Anyone can use a pomade. You there? If you’re reading this, could you maybe think about helping me get my screenplay into the right hands? I don’t really know where to turn. I thought maybe you might know someone.

    Putty

    What It Does: Its dry, tacky texture gives a higher hold than the average product. It gives a secure hold but with less shine than a gel and enough texture to look natural and not too stiff.
    Who It’s For: Short-hair guys who want a bit more of a messy style. So yeah. If you’re still with me on this FAQ journey, perhaps you’ve been thinking, “this is a particularly good writer.” Funny you should say that. I have a screenplay about a talking giraffe that I’m trying to get off the ground. It’d be real cool if you could maybe put in a good word for me with some of the studio execs.

    Paste

    What It Does: Adds more texture or definition than a pomade or gel. Waxy consistency reduces shine and is easier to put in your hair than putty. Psst. You there? If you’d like to help me get my movie made, then please shoot me a note at shortneckgiraffe1994@gmail.com.
    Who It’s For: Flexible hold makes it useful for a variety of hair lengths.

    Fiber Wax

    What It Does: Gives the ultimate range of control for an old-school classic look. Old-school looks are nice, but having an audience to read your screenplay is even nicer. I’d love to show you.
    Who It’s For: Waxes are really good for naturally wavy hair or thick hair. Look, It’s a real shame if I end up sitting on all this talent that I’ve got to give. Look for my screenplay wherever screenplays are found. And I’m out.
