Easy Hair Care Tips for Men

Men usually don’t pay as much attention to their hair as women, but they should spend at least some time understanding what makes hair look great. It’s not difficult and takes little time. If you want to have great looking hair, these easy-to-follow tips will help.

Don’t Wash Your Hair Every Day

Washing your hair every day isn’t necessary and while it may feel squeaky clean when you do, daily washing can damage your hair, causing it to become dry and brittle. Washing every other day is a good place to start. If you have a short style, you may be able to wash every three days. Hair washing frequency differs for each person depending on whether their hair tends towards dryness or oiliness. Read “How Often Should Your Wash Your Hair?” for an in-depth discussion.

Beat the Dandruff Blues

Dandruff can ruin even the best looking hair style. If you suffer from dandruff or oily patches of dead skin build up, talk to your doctor. You may have seborrheic dermatitis (scalp dermatitis) or an allergy to hair products. Washing your every other day, natural shampoos and conditioners, avoiding hot showers, and ensuring you rinse well can also help reduce the severity of dandruff and dermatitis. Read “Dealing with Dandruff”.

Stop Using Combination Shampoo & Conditioner

Many men choose combination products because they are economical and convenient. The main problem is that that cleaning your hair and conditioning your hair are two very different things. All-in-one products tend to do neither very well. Choose an organic shampoo and an organic conditioner. You may pay a little more, but they last a long time and are worth the investment.

Choose a Salon Instead of Hair Cut Production-Line Franchises

Some men choose to get their hair cut at huge franchise hair cut shops. While it can work out if you find a good stylist, you’ll really have to shop around or get a referral from a friend to find one. While some franchise salons are fine, some nationwide franchises make money providing high-volume services, so they often don’t take the time as a private salon or smaller franchise shop. You don’t want your stylist cutting corners while cutting your hair!

Don’t Wait Too Long Between Hair Cuts

Unless you are growing your hair out for a longer style, From Hair On Salon recommends getting a trim every 4-6 weeks. This way, you maintain your current style, looking more put together for a longer period of time. If you wait too long, your hair will not only look unkempt, but you may end up with visible damage such as split ends.

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Your Hair Stylist Questions

Men are sometimes anxious about asking their hair stylists questions. Don’t be! A good stylists welcomes questions. Consider asking about:

  • The best style for your hair type. Don’t be afraid to bring in a photo of a hair style you like.
  • How to style your own hair at home once you’ve had it cut and styled at the salon.
  • Products to use (shampoos, conditioners, balms, styling gels and waxes).
  • How to trim your eyebrows between salon appointments.
