A haircut is a very important to a man’s style statement because it tells a lot about the person who chose it. However, a stylish haircut is of no use if it isn’t properly taken care of. Men’s hair needs care and regular maintenance just like women. Though there are some variations when compared, but this doesn’t mean men can be negligent towards their hair. Proper hair care is important to make your hairstyle last longer. On top of that, good care of hair gives a perfect look to the hair cut. So here we have mentioned some essential hair care tips for all the real men out there.
1. Avoid over-washing
Washing hair quite often, a common mistake made by most of the men, would do more harm than good. It is better if you can limit your hair wash to twice or maximum thrice a week. Also remember to condition them after every wash. Conditioning makes sure that your scalp will not lose essential oil.
2. Don’t rub hair while drying
Rubbing wet hair may damage it as they tend to be weaker and vulnerable after washing. Rubbing them just after the wash can lead to excessive breakage. One can pat dry it in order to avoid any stress on the scalp.
3. Don’t comb-over
We often see men doing a comb-over to conceal bald patches. They should avoid it and instead try to get a haircut that suits a thinning look.
4. Start using egg conditioner
Your hair needs protein and minerals like sulphur and egg is the best source of both. You can harness the goodness of hair by conditioning it with egg yolk.
5. Avoid chlorine water
Chlorine can make your hair dry and brittle and therefore it is essential to avoid chlorine-based pools. So wet your hair and apply a mild conditioner before stepping into a pool.
6. Avoid using too many products
Products like hair wax, hair gel, and hair spray make your hair look heavy and unnatural. Use a very little amount of these products to style your hair in the right way.
7. Maintain pH level
Rinse your hair with white vinegar as it helps in balancing the pH level. This may sound weird but it really works.
8. No need to shampoo your hair twice
Most of the ads suggest that washing your hair once is not enough. This is not true. You should wash your hair just once. The only thing you need to do is choose the right shampoo and conditioner.
Keep your hair well-kept by getting a haircut every 4-6 weeks.
10. Stay natural
Avoid colouring, straightening, perming, etc. as much as possible to prevent your hair from damage.
