Handy Hair Hacks For Men
Let’s be honest, hair care isn’t typically at the top of your agenda, is it? Sure you may have some gel or wax and you’ll probably use body soap to wash your hair but do you really think about how to keep your hair healthy?
No? Well, fear not as we’ve rounded up some simple handy hair hacks to follow:
It’s time to ditch the brush and comb and use just your fingers to fluff your hair. Yes, that’s right, we’re telling you to stop brushing your hair! Combing causes your hair to go limp (and no one wants a limp anything, right?) and it can even damage your hair follicles, which in turn causes baldness.
Wash it less
Seems crazy right? First, we say to throw the comb away and now we’re telling you to wash it less. But it’s true, over-washing your hair is like overwatering a plant and you could end up stripping your hair of all its natural resources.
Choose your products wisely
When choosing products to use on your hair or your body in general, make sure you do your research. Don’t be fooled by vibrant and funky packaging. It’s what’s on the inside that counts. If you’re looking for a new shampoo, view ours here.
Gently does it
Once you’ve washed your hair, do not, we repeat, do not rub it vigorously with a towel as it can, yes, you’ve guessed it, cause thinning. So, instead, pat your hair dry to keep it in tip-top shape.
If you’re a hat lover, we’ve got some bad news for you. Hats, especially those that are tight, can restrict blood flow to your scalp and your hair will suffer as a result. This is especially important to remember if you participate in sports that require you to wear a helmet as it can cause hair loss altogether in the spots your helmet rubs. So, make sure your headwear fits you properly to ensure your hair stays happy and healthy.
Turn down the heat
For the love of hair, stop with the heat. Heat can really damage your hair so put the hairdryer and straighteners (yes, we know you use them) to one side and only use them when you absolutely need to. Pat your hair dry, use a product to style and then just let it be.
So, there you have it. Simple hair hacks that won’t break the bank and will help revive your hair.
