10 Hair Care Tips for Men

10 Hair Care Tips for Men

Understanding hair and scalp types is important to maintain hair and scalp health by establishing the right hair care. The sebaceous glands produce sebum to protect the skin and scalp from dryness. Sebum production is a natural process that adds strength and shine to the hair strand. However, some factors such as eating habits, blood circulation, and age can also affect the sebum production process. Overactive sebaceous glands produce excess sebum. That is why many people have an oily scalp that can cause the hair to look greasy. 

Dehydration is a common cause of dry hair. Hair dryness occurs when the scalp cannot produce enough oil to moisturize the hair or the hair does not retain moisture.  For dry hair, it is necessary to regulate the moisture balance to strengthen the hair strands and prevent breakage. Therefore, choosing the right shampoo and hair care products is important. Dry hair can also cause dandruff problems. Dry scalp crusts begin to flake off. But the fact remains that the dandruff problem can be seen in any types of scalp condition and can occur for many different reasons. It is the one of the most common scalp problems that many people have. 

Creating a hair care routine with rooted rituals has an effective role in minimizing scalp imbalances as well as dandruff and shedding problems.  

1. Don’t over-wash your hair

A common mistake that every man makes is washing hair quite often. Wash your hair two or three times a week, and while condition is important, be careful not to over-condition your hair as well! This helps avoid losing out on essential oil from scalp.

2. Dry your hair gently, don’t rub it

Avoid rubbing your hair after washing as hair tends to be vulnerable to damage when it is wet. 

3. Add a clarifying shampoo to your hair care routine

Clarifying shampoos give your hair an extra deep cleansing to rid it of any impurities leaving your hair super clean. It also prevents your hair from looking lifeless. Goldwell Dual Senses Men range is targeted just for men, and is great for revitalising the scalp and also bringing a shine to your hair.

4. Cut down the heat

Another important hair care tip is avoid exposing your hair too much to heat. If you are in no rush to leave, let them dry naturally. It helps prevent your hair from becoming frizzy. If you are using hair dryer, keep it on low heat setting.

5. Use a good conditioner

Most men skip out on the conditioner, but using it can help keep your hair strong and healthy. Opt for a good conditioner tailored to your hair type.

6. Protect your hair from chlorine

The chlorine in pools can cause your hair to become dry and brittle. Wear a swimming cap or wet your hair with clean water and apply a mild conditioner before you step into the pool.

7. Trim your hair

To keep your hair healthy and well-groomed, get a haircut every 4-6 weeks. Depending on your hair, you can opt for either a barbershop or hair salon.

8. Use the right tools

Hair is delicate and you need to make sure you use the right tools. Do not brush your hair when it is wet. Use fingers or a wide-toothed comb instead.

9. Do not wear tight hats

Tight hats can result in traction alopecia, which is a hair condition that can cause hair loss. 

10. Eat healthy

Hair loss can be caused by high exposure to stress and tension. To keep your hair healthy, you need to eat well, drink a lot of water and keep stress at bay.
