There seems to be so much to do and so little time these days. With the advent of the self-love mantra, our eyes have been opened to all the ways we can improve ourselves. Now, everyone wants to get their skincare, hair care routine, body fitness, and all the others right. So much to do, right?
Unfortunately, many people struggle with finding what works for them in the sea of information on the internet. Now, this is where I come in. I have put together some tips below for men seeking to up their hair care game;
1. Use a Clarifying Shampoo at Least Once a Month
Shampoos for everyday use are different from those you use to get rid of product build-up. Suppose you’re using a moisturizing, sulfate-free shampoo already, then kudos to you. Now, get yourself a clarifying shampoo for that monthly removal of product build-up.
Product build-up makes your hair look all grimy and clogs the hair follicles on your scalp. That’s a recipe for unhealthy hair, and you do not want that.
It won’t hurt if your shampoo for everyday use smells excellent, by the way. Also, if you have a beard, do care for it just as much as you care for your hair. For beard oils that make your beard smell good, you can check out WiseBarber’s nice-smelling beard oil review.
2. Get Products That Are Tailored to Your Hair Needs/Concerns
There is no one-size-fits-all product. That is why you need to conduct adequate research about products before you splurge on them.
Get familiar with your hair type and porosity. These two factors can help you determine what products to buy. In addition to that, if you have particular hair concerns like dry scalp, dandruff, split ends, and the likes, you need to get products that help you fix or manage them.
3. Moisture Should Be Your Best Friend
I am not telling you to douse your hair in water or anything. Just make sure that your hair is never dry. It is more prone to break off awkwardly during manipulation when it is dry. Sometimes, you can even get split ends.
More so, always condition your hair after washing it with shampoo. Then seal in the moisture with nutrient-filled oils or pomades. Please don’t overdo it, though. In all things, exercise moderation.
4. Use a Satin or Silk Pillowcase
For men with textured hair, I cannot stress this enough. It would be best if you switched up that cotton pillowcase for a satin or silk one; as soon as possible.
The friction between your hair and the cotton pillowcase can create split ends and leech off your hair’s much-needed moisture. The result of that is hair breakage and damage.
With time, your hair may lose its volume and usual, healthy fullness. So change your pillowcase before it is too late.
Healthy hair is priceless, but you have to work for it like most things in life. Hair Care tips are only helpful if you put them into practice. I hope the tips I offered turn out to be beneficial to you.
