Just because men have less hair, it doesn’t mean it should go uncared for. You might think it’s enough to go to the barber and get a haircut every once in a while, but the truth is your hair needs good care to make sure you’re looking your absolute best. In order to make your life easier, here are a few simple tips every man should take to have a good hair care routine:
Drying your hair the right way
When the hair is wet, it is prone to damage and rubbing hair with a towel can harm the outer layers of hair which leads to split ends and fizziness. Instead, you should pat dry your hair and gently stroke it in the right direction.
Once the excess water has disappeared, you can use a blow dryer. To reduce the noise and avoid waking up those around you, a quiet hair dryer can be used to dry out the remaining wetness and leave your hair looking neat, sharp and shiny.
Choose your hair products wisely
Using natural shampoos ensure that the ingredients are all-natural and good for your hair. Other shampoos include chemicals that are very harsh on the hair, whereas natural shampoos can promote growth, strength and hair thickness.
It’s ok to take a shower every few hours, no one will complain – except your hair. It is not good to wash your hair over and over again as it prevents the production of essential oils that the hair and scalp need, leaving it dry and frizzy. It is advised to wash your hair only 2-3 times per week.
Unlike popular belief, conditioners are not just a luxury that women use to untangle hair. Conditioners should be used with shampoo to moisturize the hair, make it stronger and add a bit of shine to it.
Be gentle with your hair
When you come to comb your hair, use gentle strokes without yanking and pulling at it. If you’re combing after you’ve used conditioner, the hair strands will be soft and moisturized allowing the combing to be easy. But, if not, just make sure you’re gentle.
Visit your barber frequently
Getting a hair trim can help keep your hair healthy and grow the right way. That’s why you should stop putting off your visit to the barber and try to make your trims once a month. This will greatly benefit your hair in the long-run.
Use the right tools for your hair
Using a good quality comb with a wide-tooth can ensure that you’ll get your hair all nice and neat without pulling excessively at the hair strands. If you’re unable to find a good quality comb, it is better to use your hand to style your hair rather than a low-quality comb.
Looking good does not require much effort. Just changing a few habits can make sure that your hair is not only looking healthy, but also neat, tidy and attractive. It’s time to start putting that extra few touches to have amazing looking hair.
