Good grooming goes beyond just looking your best and taking care of your skin. You also need to take steps to ensure that your hair is healthy and gorgeous-looking.
Here are some tips to keep your hair in the best shape and condition possible.
Use a clarifying shampoo
If you are like most men, you probably use hair products such as gel, pomade or wax on daily basis. These products can build up over time, leaving your hair looking dull and lifeless. It can also weigh your hair down.
A clarifying shampoo will remove any product build-up, excess oil and grease, and hard water minerals. Using a clarifying shampoo once or twice a week will give your hair a refresh without over-drying it.
Use less hair products
Hair products such as hair wax and gel will help keep your hair in place throughout the day. However, too much of these products can make your hair look unnatural and heavy.
If you have fine hair and you use gel for styling your hair, use a nickel-size amount and apply it to each quadrant. For men with thick or coarse hair, warm about a silver dollar size between your hands apply it to each quadrant. A dime size of wax or pomade is perfect for shorter hair and curly textures.
Get regular haircut
Getting regular haircuts will not only keep you looking sharp and well-groomed; it also helps prevent split ends. No split ends mean healthier hair. Healthier hair is easier to manage. That means, you won’t have to spend a lot of time styling and managing your hair.
Avoid rubbing your hair after washing
Our hair is weaker and more vulnerable to damage when it is wet. Rubbing your hair with a towel will not only cause damage to your hair, it will also cause frizz. Pat dry your hair gently to avoid breakage and damage.
