Hair Care Tips for Men

Okay guys, be honest, how much do you really care about your hair? If you're like me (and as it turns out, most other guys) then you actually care quite a lot!

1. Shampoo & Conditioner

A good shampoo has four basic characteristics, it cleanses the hair of oil and debris, it works in hard and soft water, it does not irritate the skin, and it leaves the hair and scalp in natural good-looking condition. You might not want to use a conditioner, but you should! Many conditioners contain lanolin, vegetable oil, proteins, and herbs, and they are designed to restore natural oils and moisturize the hair. Leave in-condition are a great alternative to styling products, and still provides some style.

2. Styling

I always believe less is more when it comes to men’s hair styling. The end product, when you have finished styling should never look overdone, or too styled. Men’s hair can look better if you look like you showered, put some effort into it, used a small amount of product, and got going. This depends on the length and texture of your hair. If you have curly hair you may want to use a mousse, for stick straight hair try gel. Pomades work well to keep your hair in place, but it can be very sticky. Hair creams also work well and are a good alternative to use if you want to run your fingers in your hair, or if you want someone else to!
