Hair care is not just for women. Any self-respecting man should look after his hair. Hair becomes coarse and brittle for a number of reasons, including sun damage and diet. It’s very important to educate yourself on hair care so that your locks always look their best.

9 Hair Care Tips 9 Hair Care Tips For Men

Here are 9 hair care tips:

1. Don’t wash your hair every day

If you wash your hair too often you will lose the natural oils that your scalp produces to keep your hair in good condition. This can often lead to your hair producing too much oil which will make you want to wash it the following day. Therefore, if you wash it less you will need to wash it less, and this will help prevent it from getting damaged. A way to avoid washing it every day is to use fewer products. This will save you time and money.

2. Don’t use very hot water

Very hot water as it can dry out your scalp and damage your hair. Rather keep the water lukewarm while washing it.

3. Wash your hair with care

Don’t be too rough on your hair when you wash it. Massage it gently with your fingers but never your finger nails as that will damage your hair.

4. Look for natural products

Cheap products filled with chemicals damage your hair. It’s better to spend a bit more money on natural products, including gel, wax and mousse, which will let your hair’s natural beauty shine through. It’s a good idea to get advice on what to use from your hairdresser.

5. Get regular haircuts

Regular haircuts will prevent split ends. Also, if your hair gets damaged, regular cutting will get rid of the evidence.

6. Be careful of what you eat

Diet is essential to hair care. It can stop hair loss and promote growth and repair. For example, lacklustre hair could be a result of not eating enough protein. This is because hair is made up of protein, so try eating more meat, eggs and cheese.

There are also a number of vitamins that you can find in food that are great for your hair:

  • Fatty acids: Found in oily fish (such as salmon) and almonds.
  • Vitamin B6: Found in spinach, bananas and potatoes.
  • Vitamin B12: Found in seafood, as well as in some meats (such as lamb), cheese and eggs. You can get your protein and B12 at the same time by eating the last few things!

If you are a vegetarian you very well could have a B12 deficiency and may want to consider taking a supplement. You get special vitamins for hair, skin and nails.

7. Drink plenty of water

Keep your hair hydrated and healthy by drinking lots of water. This will also improve your skin and nails, as well as your general sense of wellbeing.

8. Protect your hair from the sun

The sun can do a lot of damage to your hair, so wear a hat on hot days or use a product that is designed to protect your hair from the sun. Also, avoid products containing alcohol as they will dry out your hair.

9. Cut down on your smoking

Smoke does great damage to your hair. If you don’t smoke, stay away from people who do and don’t let them smoke in your house. If you do smoke, try to cut down.

With a few lifestyle changes and some clever precautions, it won’t be too long before you can impress your hairdresser with your great looking hair.
