If you’ve caught your partner pilfering your expensive shampoo, or eying up your hair treatments, it’s probably time to help him sort out a proper hair care routine. It doesn’t need to cost the earth, or require hundreds of products – even the simplest of routines will help his locks and scalp stay happy and healthy.
Luckily, the haircare experts over at Crown Clinic have put together their top tips for helping your man sort out his hair care routine!
Every good hair care routine starts with a good shampoo. Although shampoo doesn’t have to be expensive to work well, it’s important that you pick one that is suitable for your hair type.
If you find your roots get oily and shiny easily, opt for a shampoo designed for greasy hair. If the ends are frizzy and dry, look for a shampoo that will be more nourishing and hydrating to use.
When choosing a shampoo, consider your scalp health too. Do you have dandruff or an itchy scalp, or does your scalp feel clogged and unhappy? Choose a shampoo that addresses your particular needs.
Many men skip out on conditioner, thinking that they don’t need it, or that it’ll make their hair look greasy. This is definitely not the case!
Conditioner is a key step in any hair care routine, but is especially important for men with long or curly hair. Choose a conditioner that is nourishing, but not too heavy, and it will leave your hair bouncy and shiny.
Treatments are a great way to nourish your hair and give yourself a little pampering too! Hair masques and treatments should be used sparingly to make the most of the benefits without weighing down your hair.
If your hair is particularly dry or frazzled, try using a treatment every two weeks until your hair condition improves. For normal hair, once per month or once every six weeks should be enough to keep your hair on top form.
If you dry your hair or use straighteners, be careful not to overuse these tools and damage your hair with heat. If you do regularly use heated tools, make sure to use a heat protection spray or product beforehand.
Gels and pomades can leave your hair feeling crunchy or sticky. If you find this to be an issue, opt for lightweight styling sprays instead.
These simple tips should help you keep your hair and scalp looking healthy for years to come!
