A healthy hair is a manifestation of good health and well being. For men, a hair that is free from conditions like dandruff and bald spots is enough to be thankful for. However, you should also know that healthy hair is one that is free of breakage and damage.
We all know men do not give too much attention to their hair. While you may be contented with shampooing your hair occasionally, you may want to start taking care of it more seriously now to avoid the common problems most men have: baldness. Here are some tips you can follow to make it healthier and stronger.
Trimming should be scheduled at least every month not only to maintain your current hairstyle but also the get rid of dry and damaged ends. Also, some people believe that trimming regularly stimulates growth. By trimming regularly, you may not have to worry about thinning and receding hair line for a few more years.
Have the right set of tools.
Like women, you should know that having the right brush and comb is important in maintaining. Choose a brush with natural bristles as it is gentler on your hair. For those who prefer using a comb, choose one with a wide tooth especially if you have curly hair. A wide tooth comb makes combing curly hair easier and prevents hair breakage. Some men choose to dry their hair with a hair dryer. Make sure to use the low setting of your dryer to prevent too much damage on your hair.
You should not take dandruff for granted. Aside from the fact that those flakes are not good to look at, having a dandruff may be a sign on an underlying scalp condition you have to treat. A shampoo with eucalyptus and tea tree oil is effective in eliminating dandruff and soothing the scalp’s dryness and itchiness. Eucalyptus and tee tree oil also keeps your hair and scalp moisturized.
Massage your scalp.
Massaging your scalp with your fingertips as you shampoo helps distribute the lather and ensures thorough cleansing. Massage also stimulates the scalp to produce natural oils and encourages hair growth.
Color gray hair.
Although many men opt to leave their gray hair alone to make them look more mature, graying hair is not a good thing, especially if you’re not yet supposed to have gray hair. If you are growing out gray hair at a young age, dyeing your hair is one of your best options. Never try to pull out your gray hair as it will just grow back. In some cases, pulling out your gray hair may split the strand in two, resulting in 2 strands growing in the spot where you pulled out a strand of hair.
There are a lot of simple things you can do to manage your hair. A few minutes everyday is all it takes to have healthier hair. Make hair care part of your daily grooming routine.
