Every contemporary man understands the importance of having a healthy hair.
A proper haircut is only the first step in having a sharp look. Knowing the specifics of your scalp and locks, though, is more crucial to maintaining a neat hairstyle than investing in expensive products.
If you feel like you spend enough time on your hair, but it is still unruly and requires tonnes of product to style, keep on reading.
There are common mistakes, which almost every man can recognize himself guilty of.
Do You Wash Your Hair Every Time You Take a Shower?
Please, STOP. If you sweated a lot during a workout or need to cool down after a tough day at work, use only water. When you treat your hair with shampoo every time you shower, you strip your scalp off its natural oils. This leads to dryness, itchiness, and often is the culprit for dandruff.
Do You Use 2-in-1 Conditioner and Shampoo?
Do not fall into the trap: in this case, it is not two birds with one stone.
Shampoo is meant to open the hair cuticles and clean them up, while conditioner has to moisturize and close them back down. When you use a 2-in-1 what happens is that you get a perfectly clean hair, but it picks up more pollutants, as the cuticles remain open.
Do You Lather Your Hair with Styling Products?
You may want to achieve a certain look, which requires wax, gel, or mousse. There is nothing wrong with that but using too much product is a common mistake, which results in a clumpy stiff style. Instead, you should understand what works for your hair texture and cut and embrace it with an unnoticeable amount of the right type of product.
Do You Neglect Your Scalp’s Health?
We often put our scalps on the back burner, as we are so focused on attaining that shiny glossy hair look. What is important to remember, though, is that the main culprit for dandruff, greasiness, or your hair falling out is in the roots: your scalp. The most appropriate measures you can take is to use suitable product lines, based on the oil ratio and sensitivity of your scalp. For extra benefits, you can incorporate a head massage into your hair routine.
