There is nothing worse than waking up in the morning of a very important day seeing that not only do you have a bad hair day, but you’re having the worst hair day ever. But what can you do? Wash your hair probably and try to style it once again. But maintaining your hair is so much more than washing it and styling it with different products. Girls know this, and that is why their hair is always perfect. So, guys, it is high time we started paying attention to our hair as well. What can we do? Take a look at these 5 tips that will make your hair much more representative. Time to welcome good hair days, every day!
Do not wash your hair every day
Contrary to popular belief, it is not actually very good to wash your hair every single day. You might think that this will help you achieve that perfect look that you want, but you are actually doing more harm than good. Over-washing your hair, and over-shampooing makes your hair oil-free, and there are certain oils that keep your hair fresh and healthy. The natural oils are good for the hydration of your scalp and for the state of your hair. So, wash your hair 3 – 4 times a week.
High-quality products only
Using low-quality and cheap products on your hair will show. This is why cutting costs and saving money on such things is not very advisable. Opting for the best hair wax on the market and a shampoo that you know for sure is amazing, no matter the price, is what you should be doing if you want to have amazing hair. Apart from not doing the job it is supposed to, it can cause dandruff, which is one of the biggest turnoffs, hair-wise.
What about conditioner?
There is a debate on whether guys should use conditioner, how much, and when. Well, the answer is – yes, guys should use conditioner, especially if they have longer hair. The longer your hair is, the more conditioner you will need. However, make sure that you use a good conditioner (use the previous tip as reference – a conditioner is also a hair product). When applying the conditioner, do not apply so much on the roots, but lather the full length of your hair, and focus on the ends.
Be gentle while drying
A mistake that many men make is the fact that they dry their hair with the towel very aggressively. This is a huge mistake, as you should not rub your hair, but rather blot it nicely. Being too rough can do harm to curly hair, for example, or decrease the volume of it, which is definitely something we are not looking forward to. If you have thinning hair, this is the most important piece of advice you will read today, so make sure you remember it!
Getting a haircut regularly is a must if you want to have the hair of your dreams. There is no need to do it very often, though – you can get a haircut every three weeks. However, know that this is very subjective though, as the tempo of hair grow is not the same for everyone. If your hair grows faster and you like to have your hair super short, then getting a haircut every two weeks is ideal. If your hair is a bit longer, you can also do that very four, or even five weeks. Do not let it overgrow, though, as it will lose its style and shape and you will look quite ridiculous.
Gentlemen, it is time we had the best hair! It is quite possible, we just need a bit of devotion and paying attention to it. It is quite easy, frankly, but we do need to remember these five essential tips. Let’s try them out for a month and see the difference, shall we?
