Hair. Everyone has it, some have more of it, some have less of it, but for a man, hair can make or break a look.
We’re not just talking head hair either, the fashion for a well-cut and well-groomed beard is definitely coming back, and the famous handlebar mustache isn’t that far off either!
Masculine Haircare Made Easy
Men’s hair has a strange place in history. When some men go bald, they see it as a way of showing their wisdom, but for others, it can be really disheartening.
There’s no right or wrong answer either, and looking at the before and after pictures of hair transplants on hshairclinic.co.uk really shows what a major difference having a good head of hair can really make to the lives of men everywhere (and some women!).
Here are five tips to help you care for your hair in a way that will keep it looking shiny and stronger for longer.
1. Use A Good Shampoo
Shampoos are not all created equal, and what works for one man’s hair may not work for another man’s hair.
This is why it’s really important to test out which shampoos your hair likes and doesn’t like and, when you find one that works, stick with it religiously!
If you’re concerned about the single-use plastic issues of so many hair care products, why not consider giving solid shampoo bars a go to clean your mop instead?
2. Use Conditioner
Believe it or not, there are many men who just don’t use conditioner. For men with short hair, a quick shampoo is usually all it takes to get hair looking and smelling clean and fresh, but the problem with this is that hair never gets the nourishment it needs.
Shampoo bars can be very drying, starving the scalp of essential oil, but a conditioner will help to coat the hairs in a film of protection from the elements.
Don’t skip the conditioner.
3. Don’t Over Product
If you spent years watching your grandad wash his hair and then run it through with a hair pomade, you may be forgiven for thinking that’s what you SHOULD do with your style, but this is actually far from the truth!
In general, it’s best to go for as few products as possible, and if you’re not going out anywhere, skip the products altogether after shampooing and conditioning.
4. Get A Regular Cut
If you’re looking to get a bit more body and length to your hair, it may seem counterintuitive to cut it, but there is a method to the madness.
Not only will you remove the dead split ends, but a regular cut actually encourages hair growth!
5. Stay Away From Heat
Yes, those straighteners and hairdryers look really appealing to try to tame your frizzy mane but hold your horses. Using too much heat can damage your hair, leaving it brittle and fine.
It’s best to skip the heated tools until you really need them and use a heat defense spray at the same time to protect your hair from heat damage.
