For most men, our hair is a big issue. We want to keep the hair on our head and face looking good at all times. Which is why I’ve created a guide to help all men take care of their hair:
Check Your Shampoo – It’s important that you’re cleaning your hair with shampoo whenever you wash it. The more you wash your hair, the quicker it will grow. Some guys can afford to go a day or two without washing it, and it will be fine. Others need to wash their hair every day – particularly if you use styling products. The important thing to do is check your shampoo. You want to ensure you’re using stuff that’s not bad for your hair. Some shampoos have harmful chemicals that end up making your hair worse. Find shampoo that’s good for your hair, and you’ll soon see results.
You can get shampoo to suit the situation you’re in. If you want thicker hair, there’s stuff out there that will help you. Likewise, if you have a dandruff issue, you’ll find some to counter it. I think it’s also important you condition your hair after using shampoo. This will get it nice and soft; ladies love feeling soft hair!
Eat Better Foods – If you’re eating loads of rubbish food, your hair tends to suffer. Because, believe it or not, healthy hair depends on your diet. If you find that your hair is thinning, and you’re worried about going bald, it may be because of what you’re eating. Or, to put it a better way, what you’re not eating. Yes, there are certain foods that are great for the health of our hair. Hair is made up of protein, so, you need to make sure you’re getting a lot of that. Fish oils and omega 3 are two other things that can promote thick and healthy hair. You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to figure out that fish is going to be good for your hair. It’s a great source of protein, and you get those oils and omega 3 fatty acids too.
In addition, other good protein sources like chicken and turkey will be beneficial to your hair. Another key component is getting lots of iron into your diet. A lack of iron can lead to hair loss. If you want to keep that full head of hair, you better be eating foods high in iron. The most obvious foods like this are kale and other salad greens. Vitamin C is also great for your hair, so eat loads of fruits and veg high in the stuff.
Of course, if you can’t find the time to eat all this stuff, there are other things you can do. I recommend you get some supplements that contain all these things. You can take them every day and they’ll give your hair a boost. A key supplement to look out for is biotin. It’s a B Vitamin that can help your hair get thicker and fuller.
Style It Wisely – Most guys like styling their hair, it’s one of the best parts of male grooming. A lot of women like guys with cool hairstyles and haircuts, so we try to make it look good. If you do like styling your hair, then style it wisely. Pick a style that suits you, don’t force it. Just because something looks good on one guy, doesn’t mean it will look good on you.
Also, don’t use too much stuff on your hair. Whether it’s wax, mousse, gel, use in moderation. A little goes a long way! If you’re constantly smothering your hair with styling products, it will have a bad effect. Your hair will become greasy and congealed with all this gross stuff. It will undo all the hard work that you’ve done! Be clever and only use a small amount when styling your hair. It might make sense to only style it when you need to. For example, if you’re staying at home or just popping to the shops, do you need to style it? Style wisely for better results!
Don’t Forget About Your Beard – Having thick, healthy, hair doesn’t end with the hair on your head. For lots of guys, you have a beard to take care of too. It’s important that you have proper beard maintenance, to keep it in good condition. There are certain methods and tricks you can use to keep your bead hair thick and flowing. If you care for your beard properly, you’ll soon have one to rival Father Christmas.
My first tip is to wash your beard. Now, I know this may sound obvious, but you’ll be surprised at how many men forget this. They might wash their face and get their beard wet in the shower, but they never properly wash it. If you have a fairly long beard, you should use a dab of shampoo and massage it in. Just as you would when washing the hair on your head. Doing this will keep your beard looking and smelling clean. Plus, with the right shampoo, it can make it feel softer too. Then, you have things you can do to your beard on a daily basis to keep it in good order. Get your hands on some beard oil or balm, and apply it regularly. These products will help condition your beard as well as giving it more structure.
If you don’t have a big beard and prefer to rock a more toned down look, you can still look after it. Find a face moisturizer that is beard friendly. There are some out there that will make it softer and more healthy. If you’re using some of my earlier tips, your beard hair should be in good shape, along with the hair on your head. But, applying some extra beard-specific things can help give it an even bigger boost.
And there you have it! My ultimate guide to taking care of your hair. Follow this and you’ll soon have a thick head of hair and an awesome beard. Plus, some of the tips can help prevent hair loss in lots of men!
