With the warm and sunny days well and truely here, it is time to get all geared up for the season ahead. Spring gives us the time and the opportunity to get ourselves ready for the peak of the summer. It is a time for new beginnings and a time for positive change. Today we take a look at a few common grooming issues faced by men and how to deal with them.
Man Shampoo Hair - Anti Dandruff supplied by barber

If you are experiencing the itch or flaking on the scalp that is associated with dandruff, then you need to get your hands on an anti-dandruff shampoo, but not any old bottle. You need American Crew Anti-Dandruff that addresses both a dry or an oily scalp. This scalp therapy shampoo will leave your hair and scalp refreshed and invigorated, free of unsightly dandruff and also has conditioning properties.

Body Odour

As the weather warms and we become more active, we start to sweat more and body odour can be a nasty result. But fear not, the gents at uppercut deluxe have a pocket size fix for every man. Their Solid Cologne is strong-smelling, long-lasting and small enough to fit in your pocket. The handy little tin is perfect for the active guy on the go.

Razor Burn

This unsightly rash is damaged skin and hair follicles that have become inflamed. Sometimes this is caused by a dull razor and sometimes it’s come down to technique. Try to shave after a hot shower and applying shaving soap with a brush. This combination will soften the whiskers and raise the hair follicles for a clean shave. Never shave against the grain, as this can cause damage to the hair follicles. Always rely on quality shaving products, see the cabinet in-store for the best brands for men and ask the staff for further advice.

Unruly Hair

We all love it when we leave the barbershop with a fresh cut, we have a perfectly groomed hairstyle and not a hair is out of place. The troublesome part is trying to tame our unruly hair so we can recreate that same look at a later date. The advise here is to use a quality shampoo and conditioner, try a blow-dry to help set longer styles and be sure to use styling products that are suited to your hair type. Ask your barber for advise on what products will work best for you. This will ensure you the control you need for styling and stop your locks getting into too much of a tangle during the day.
