1. Use the Right Styling Product(s)
Can’t decide which styling product is best for you? Well, that depends on the effect you’re attempting to achieve. For example, if you’re going for a slick hairstyle, opt for a good hair gel. If you have thick hair and are looking for a firm hold, along with some shine and softness, then you should definitely opt for high-quality hair waxes. Need to create some texture and a natural hold on your hair type? Then you should opt for an excellent hair cream for men.
2. Avoid Over-Shampooing
Do you seriously think that men washed their hair on a daily basis a thousand years ago? In your imagination, they probably got a chance to wash their manes right between hunting down a meal and fighting off an attack from the neighboring tribe. Nope. Those wise guys didn’t wash their hair everyday, no way. Follow their example, dude. Shampoo once every two or three days. That way, you will allow your scalp enough time to replenish its natural oils and help your hair recover. As a result, making your mane look stylish will be a lot easier.
3. Create More Volume
If you want to give that hair more volume, you’re going to need your comb and a blow dryer. Comb your hair up and blow dry it at the same time. That way, you will keep it all up-and-trendy. Alternatively, you can also blow dry your mane upside down and let the power of gravity work wonders on your hair bounciness. You will like the result for sure!
4. Cut Down on Excessive Heat
Tired of dry and unruly hair? Make sure you avoid washing your mane with hot water. Opt for lukewarm water to rinse your hair instead. By practicing this approach, you will help your hair maintain its natural oils needed to prevent dryness. In addition to this, air-dry your hair whenever possible. Excessive heat won’t do your hairstyle any good, so make sure you let your hair chill without the blow dryer at least once in a while.
5. Try Dry Shampoos
Dry shampoos are awesome. They are great at absorbing your scalp grease and i.e. cleaning up your mane in an amazingly effective way. So make sure you have a bottle of dry shampoo around just in case. It will definitely help you improve your hairstyle on the go.
