Women get all the attention when it comes to hair and it makes sense because of how long their hair usually is. Men however have very similar issues to women when it comes to hair care, and today we will dig deep into the roots to give you the gentlemen out there some valuable tips to take home with them.
Hair is a vital trait to your overall look
If you think you are having a bad hair day, you need to go to the nearest restroom and make quick adjustments. We understand that not everyone is born with luscious, easy to manage hair. You can still do something about it to keep it controlled though. This leads us to our first tip:
1. Do not be negligent to your hair care routine.
When you get up in the morning, you need to spend at least 5 minutes fixing your hair. Depending on what type of hair you have, long or short, silky or thick, there is a lot that you can do. Dedicate 5 minutes in the morning to just your hair and try new things out. With that said, our 2nd tip is the following:
2. Find the right product for your hair type
If you have short to medium hair for example, you can look towards getting a hair paste. This paste-like product works great on every type of hair, as long as it is short to medium in length. If you have long hair, you need to look for a pomade. Pomade’s are soft but effective for long hair and they do a great job of not constricting your hair too much. Hair gel is primarily for short hair, but if you do go this route you should have thick hair and want to style it upwards only.
3. Brush your hair daily.
Who knew that brushing was actually good for your hair? We didn’t know this until we talked to our doctor, who suggested that brushing your hair for 2 minutes every day can be beneficial in preventing knots from forming and general unruliness from occurring. Remember about that 5 minute a day routine we talked about?
4. Don’t overdo it.
This is possibly the most important tip of them all. When you put too much hair gel or wax, or you blow dry for too long, you will only damage your hair. Moderation is definitely the key to great hair and you’ve likely heard the expression “Less is more” coming straight from this subject. Don’t overdo it!
5. Embrace Your Hair Type
Just remember that some people are born with better genes than others. You can not control it. Instead, embrace your hair for how it is and just do your best to portray it. I know you may see celebrities out there with gorgeous hair, man or female, but keep in mind that they also spend thousands of dollars on their hair in just one sitting. If you have the money, by all means go to a high end salon and they will take care of you. If you are just a regular person like the rest of us, do your best and deal with it.
Your hair is unique to you. Find the right product after testing different brands, and stick with it. While it does stand out a lot, keep in mind that the hair on your head is just one part of your physical appearance. Focus on the other parts too!
