MEN’S HAIRCARE TIPS

 

With a billion products and advice blogs about women’s hair, we thought it was about time someone told us guys how to keep our hair healthy. So here goes…

DON’T OVER WASH YOUR HAIR

To avoid losing the essential oils in your scalp, try to only wash your hair around three times a week.

PAT DRY, DON’T RUB

Wet hair is weaker and gets damaged more easily. Rubbing with a towel after washing will lead to breakage, so pat it dry instead.

ALWAYS CONDITION

Use a good conditioner on your hair to strengthen it. If you’re brave you can use an egg conditioner – rub egg yolks into your hair and scalp to strengthen the follicles under the skin.

CUT DOWN ON HEAT

Avoid using hair dryers to dry your hair, and instead leave it to dry naturally. If you have to use one, keep it on a low heat setting.

DON’T BRUSH WET HAIR

Because hair is more susceptible to damage when wet, brushing it can cause breakage and put strain on your follicles. Use your fingers or a wide toothed comb instead.

GET YOUR HAIR CUT REGULARLY

Every 4-6 weeks depending on the style of your hair, to encourage growth and keep your hair strong and healthy.

USE THE RIGHT PRODUCT

For thinning hair, use salt spray to thicken and style. For thick and curly hair, coconut oil will reduce frizz and create shine. There’s a product for every hair type, just never use too much on your barnet.

AVOID A TIGHT HAT OR MAN BUN

A tight hat or a ponytail can add stress to the hair by pulling it in the wrong direction, weakening the hair and the follicles.

PROTECT HAIR IN THE POOL

If you’re going swimming then we recommend wetting hair with clean water before entering the pool, or applying a small amount of conditioner. Chlorine chemically bonds with proteins in the hair and causes the hair’s outer layer to lift, which leaves hair dry and brittle.
