Man Health: How to take care of your hair?

Most men are now happy to acknowledge that they care about their appearance. Here are some sensible tips for good grooming that will improve your image.

Daily Hair Care

Daily hair care using the right methods and products takes just a few minutes but can vastly improve your overall appearance. For the occasional slip-up, there are some tips on dealing with a hangover.

Hair: Men tend to keep their hair shorter than women, with natural hair colour and shape. Overall, this means that they tend not to suffer from split ends and frizz. However, in order to style short hair, stronger styling preparations are required, such as gels and waxes. These can leave heavy deposits on the scalp, which needs to be cleansed thoroughly.

Men also tend to suffer from dandruff, due to frequent washing of their hair. Dandruff is caused by a natural yeast, which can be triggered, causing the scalp to shed dead skin (seen as white flakes). Specialist anti-dandruff shampoos should be used regularly to control this condition. Mild formulas or 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioners are recommended for men that frequently wash their hair and do not use heavy styling products.

For those who do use gel or wax, an anti-build up formula is recommended to cleanse any stubborn residue on the scalp. To prevent thinning hair, or improve the appearance of balding hair, thickening shampoos can be used. However, this does not halt the progress of male pattern baldness.
