In the world of men's grooming, it's easy to get lost in beard oils, shaving kits and other products that help men look good. But what about your hair? While it might not be the most important component of your appearance, it does say something about how you take care of yourself.
Gone are the days of using body wash as shampoo.
You may be used to using body wash as shampoo, but it's time to break the habit. Body wash is not formulated for cleaning hair and can leave residue on your scalp that further damages your strands. Shampoo contains humectants that attract moisture from the air and feed it into each strand of hair, which makes them strong and healthy--the opposite of what happens when you use body wash as a substitute for shampoo.
Great hair isn't just for women! It’s time men put their hair first. After all, a healthy head of hair is good for your body and your mind.
Men can benefit from taking care of their tresses just as much as women--and it doesn't even have to cost you an arm or leg (or both). Here are some tips on how to get started:
Invest in good shampoo and conditioner that will help keep your scalp clean and healthy by washing away dirt, oil, impurities and product buildup without stripping your strands of natural oils.
Create a moisturizing routine that works for your hair. To start, never apply oil to dry hair. Oil is a sealant, so use it to seal in water or other water-based products. While some people can moisturize once a week, others may need to do so more frequently.
Clean your hair tools (like your combs and brushes) weekly with a little shampoo or dishwashing liquid. Be sure they're fully dry before using again.
