When you love your hair, it's only natural that you want to take care of it. Many men either don't have a dedicated hair-care regimen or blindly follow whatever advice they are given, regardless of whether it's the best choice for their hair. To keep your head looking fantastic, here are five must-know healthy hair care tips for men that you should consider.
1. Avoid Over-Shampooing
Many men fall into the bad habit of shampooing their hair too much. People believe they need to shampoo their hair every time they shower and often shampoo it more than once per shower with the lather, rinse, repeat method. Shampooing too often strips your hair and scalp of natural essential oils that keep your hair protected and healthy. You really only need to shampoo two or three times a week.
2. Know Your Scalp
Different men have different natural scalps, and it helps to find shampoos and conditioners that complement your body. Some men have a drier, flakier scalp and may need a shampoo with some extra moisturizing effects. Other men’s scalps create excess oils for naturally glossy hair. In order to take good care of your hair, you want to pay attention to the natural state of your hair and find products that work with your body.
3. Gently Dry
One of the must-know healthy hair care tips for men is not to rub and scrub your hair dry with a towel when you get out of the shower. Wet hair is more fragile, and vigorously scrubbing it dry with terrycloth may be doing more damage than you think. We recommend gently patting your hair dry to avoid causing any unnecessary damage.
4. Use Less Product
There are many helpful styling products out there, including gels, oils, and mousse, but applying too much of these products to your hair too often makes it look unnatural and unhealthy. Consider using a smaller amount of product to guide and train your hair toward a certain style.
5. Style With Care
Knowing when and how to style your hair makes a big difference. Try combing your hair gently with your fingers or a wide-toothed comb when your hair is wet. If you use a hair dryer, use it on a low heat setting. The smartest thing you can do for your hair is treat it delicately while styling it and avoid things like combing too hard.
