Hair Care for Men: The Essentials

Let’s face it: a good mane of hair is an asset to men’s looks. You don’t have to put in the same amount of time women put into their hair care, but your hair does deserve more of the attention you’re currently devoting to your face and body. Taking care of your hair now will pay off later, helping you address hair concerns such as dry or oily hair, dandruff, or more serious long-term issues, such as hair-fall.

It doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s just a matter of establishing a routine of good hair care and grooming habits. After that, it’s easy to incorporate these tips into your routine without even thinking about it. Here are six useful tips.

1. Use a gentle, natural shampoo

Get rid of strongly scented shampoos with harsh ingredients and go for a gently formulated shampoo with natural ingredients that are good for hair and scalp. Look for vitamins with antioxidant benefits and moisturizing ingredients, like argan oil, which is wonderful for hair.

2. Condition your hair

After washing hair, it’s time to apply conditioner, which smoothens hair cuticles and will give your hair a neater, shinier appearance. It only takes maybe 3-5 extra minutes for this step, so try not to omit it! If you have hair that’s on the oily side, you may only need to condition every other day.

3. Find a hairstyle that complements your hair

Don’t let your hair go shaggy! Make it a habit to visit the barber every two to three weeks to get your proper cut and grooming – or master the DIY with your own hair clippers. If you prefer professional care, make friends with your barber, so he gets accustomed to what you like and will help you find a style that suits your face shape and personal style.   

4. Treat your hair with care

Hair needs careful treatment when drying and styling. Avoid hair breakage and hair fall, towel dry your hair gently, and don’t rub too hard. If you’ve got a longer hairstyle, don’t brush your hair or use a fine-toothed comb when coming straight out of the shower, or you might stretch, break, or damaged hair strands.

5. Use natural styling products

To protect your hair when drying and styling, apply a light coat of hair oil or herbal serum, then proceed to drying and styling your hair as usual.

6. Give your hair extra TLC if you do active sports or often wear a helmet.

Are you often doing workouts at the swimming pool, out in the sun running, or under a helmet several days of the week? Protect your hair with a good shampoo and conditioner formula that contains moringa for hair growth.
