We all know that woman’s hair is her ‘crowning glory’. However, to an extent, the same holds true for men too. Men, unlike the fairer sex, have never really given a lot of importance to the way they look, much less their hair. However, with the arrival of the age of the ‘Metrosexual Male’, men have begun to focus more on the way they look. With the sudden surge in importance given to looks, hairstyles have begun to play a central role in the life of an average male. In the past, men were accustomed to washing their hair with the shampoo that was closest to them in the shower. Now, all that’s changed, men are extremely aware of what shampoo or even conditioner they use on their hair. Myriad products that include hair gels, wax, and oils are now being used by men. Unfortunately, this can lead to host of complications. It is tremendously important to gain knowledge on styling hair and styling it with the justifiable use of the right hair products. Take the time, read on to discover hairstyling tips for men.
Hair Care Tips For Men
Go Easy On Hair Products
This is the ‘Number One’ rule for good hair. Hair products can make your hair look temporarily good, but in the long run will mostly result in a lot of damage to your hair. Frequent use of hair products can even lead to hair loss. So try your best to stay away from hair products (gels, creams, sprays, wax, and mousse). However, if you must use certain products on your hair, do so in moderation. Alternatively, you can use really small amounts of hair products on your hair.
Oil Your Hair
Using good and reliable hair oil on a regular basis does to the hair what a balanced diet does to the body. Also, applying hair oil onto your scalp at least an hour prior to a shower will help condition your hair naturally. This will ultimately result in hair that’s so much more nourished and better looking.
Tie Up Long Hair
Almost every man, at some point of time in their lives has sported long hair, or would have liked to sport the same. However, while long hair does look good, hair all over the face doesn’t. Make it a point to pull back your hair or tie it even for a face that’s free of your locks.
If you happen to be ridden with split ends and do not want to go to a professional to get them trimmed, you’re still lucky enough to have the option of an escape route. Frizzy ends are such a bane, but can still be corrected with a little effort. Get yourself a sharp pair of hair cutting scissors and snip away at only the ends that are extremely frizzy. This should help you face the problem of split ends.
Crunchy hair or hair that looks like it’s going to break off from your scalp can be set right with the assistance of a mild non-sticky hair product. However, you’ve got to make it a point to not go overboard with the use of the particular hair product.
You can choose to blow dry your hair if you happen to suffer from thinning hair. Blow drying thinning hair helps give your hair more volume. Start off by washing your hair with a shampoo and condition it too. Then proceed to dry with your hair with a towel before blow-drying it for a fuller look. You can choose to follow this procedure even if you don’t suffer from thinning hair.
Sleep On It
For hair that looks its best, take a shower before you hit the sack. This can help give you the bed-head or the just-out-of-bed look naturally. You can always take another shower in the morning, but just wear a shower cap when taking the same.
Don’t Use A Comb On Wet Hair
Using a comb on hair that’s wet can do more harm than good. This is because your hair is extremely weak when wet, and combing it then cause it to come off. So steer away from combs when your hair is as wet as the sea.
