Get your hair in top shape with 5 of these simple tips.
This one’s for the guys! The daily stresses your hair goes through takes a toll on your mane. Everything from your man bun to those laps in the pool can cause damage and your follicles need some TLC to make up for the damage you’re causing.
So how do you deal with problems like greasiness, breakage, hair loss and product build-up? A little maintenance (just like your body, car and relationship) goes a long way. Here are some simple tips you can follow to keep your hair looking and feeling at its best.
Avoid aggressive grooming
You’re taking some steps to style your hair daily, right? One of the biggest mistakes men make when it comes to styling is using too much product. A little bit can go a long way. Using less allows you to achieve a more natural look and helps relieve some of that product build-up on the scalp.
Excessive blow drying for that perfectly coiffed look is also a leading factor for hair fall among men. While you want to look good, cut your hair some slack on certain days or you might end up harming your hair in the long run.
Choose a good shampoo and conditioner
The most important step in the haircare process is actually choosing the right shampoo. Your shampoo should cleanse your hair of dirt and unnecessary oils while also ridding the scalp of build-up. Choose a shampoo that works for you by targeting your hair concerns.
DrGL® Cleanser Anti-Hairloss prevents hair loss by harnessing cutting-edge peptides and vitamins to nourish and protect hair right down to the roots, stimulating regrowth.
Make sure you don’t skip on the conditioner! Conditioners are moisturisers for the hair and ignoring this step can lead to dull, rough hair that’s prone to breakage. Condition only the ends of your hair to avoid greasiness on your scalp.
Maintain a healthy scalp
Healthy hair starts from the scalp. For good, strong hair, look to the scalp first. A clean scalp promotes a healthy environment which optimises hair growth. Similar to skincare, exfoliation of the scalp is important to remove dead skin cells from around the follicle to promote a healthy follicle.
DrGL® Cleanse & Defend scalp treatment effectively unclogs the hair follicle and removes debris-like sebum and product build-up while providing a boost of nourishment deep at the roots.
Skip those hot showers
Nothing feels better than a hot shower, but avoid showering with scalding hot water. When water is too hot, it can strip the essential oils from your hair and scalp. This leads to dryness, which can leave your hair looking dull. Instead of hot water, keep your showers at a warm, comfortable temperature and keep those essential oils protected for a healthy scalp.
Pat your hair dry
While rubbing your hair with a towel will help it dry quickly, it actually damages the hair by breaking it. Wet hair is delicate, and violent rubbing can damage it. Gently pat it with a towel instead to avoid further breakage, especially if it is already thinning.
There are a ton of environmental factors beyond your control that can wreak havoc on the hair. UV rays, chlorine, and stress are all contributing factors. For healthy hair, ensure you eat well, get plenty of exercise, drink sufficient water, get enough sleep and remove unnecessary stress from your life. Being in a good state of health increases the rate of hair growth.
Since hair is such an important part of your appearance, remember to keep it well maintained. Remember that your hair is a direct reflection of your health. Follow the steps above and look forward to some good ol’ hair rejuvenation!
