A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO HAIR CARE FOR MODERN MEN
May 30, 2020
First impressions are all too important and the hair of any person can make a significant difference in how they present and how they are perceived. While women have long focused on lengthy styling rituals, many a man’s routine is also becoming more detailed and purposeful. Nowadays, you will see men getting a regular haircut, making use of various hair products, and leaving the house only after polishing their look. With the ever increasing number of hair products available in the market, it's easy to use products that may eventually damage your hair. Apart from this, you may also be doing regular practices that can harm your scalp and hair. It is vital to take good care of your hair and to have the knowledge to properly do so, let’s take a deeper look.
Pay special attention to your scalp
First, you have to take good care of your scalp. Why? Because your scalp is the point from which your hair grows. It determines the amount of hair you produce as well as its health and growth. The moment you neglect your scalp, it can impact the thickness of your hair and the number of hair follicles you produce. The worst side effect of neglecting your scalp is for you to start losing your hair.
Do not shampoo your hair every day
Yes, it's important to shampoo your hair, but doing it every day can be more harmful to your hair than you might expect. Why? Your scalp secretes oil into the hair to keep it nourished and healthy. The shampoo you use can impact the oil secretion, making your hair weak and dull. Although shampooing is for personal hygiene, only apply it to your hair every other day so that you won’t defeat the purpose of keeping your hair healthy and strong. If you use waxes be sure to get a quality degreasing shampoo like Uppercut Deluxe, see in store for more on this.
Do not forget to apply conditioner
While men regularly shampoo their hair, they tend to miss out on using a hair conditioner. Most women feel the need to use the conditioner on a daily basis because it helps nourish their hair as a way to replenish the lost oil. So, while your shampoo strips the needed oil from your hair, the conditioner helps put it back, making your hair grow healthier. For this reason, apply a hair conditioner often, and work it through from your scalp to the ends of your hair.
Be gentle when brushing or fixing your hair
There are a few practices that you do that may be harming your hair. These include recklessly drying your hair with a towel, using a blow dryer that is too hot, having a scolding hot shower, or pulling your hair. All these can significantly damage your hair. Once the hair follicle is ruined from above, it is hard for them to recover.
Be wary of the styling products you use
Styling products are meant to assist you with your hair care and styling but some of these styling products can actually be harmful. The cheap and nasties that you see in the supermarket often contain sulphites and parabens amongst other harmful chemicals. It is important to know what you're putting on your hair and also how to properly wash it out.
