Did you know that 1 in every 4 men struggle with hair loss leading to baldness before the age of 30? You may have embraced the trendiest styles in men’s fashion to suit your personality or even mastered the right facial hair to fit your chiseled jaws, but have you overlooked hair care? While you may have a full head of short (or long, more power to you!) luscious locks, having the proper routine can help you maintain your crown or even reverse premature hair loss that leads to male baldness. Here is a list of solutions to give you healthy hair and deal with hair loss.
Invest in a hair care system
Chances are you probably use one of those products bragging of their 2-in-1 or even 3-in-1 abilities. While it is convenient to have the shampoo, conditioner, and body wash come in one portable package often, it is too good to be true. Invest wisely in a hair care system. That is separate products of shampoo, conditioner, and hair treatment. Be careful to pick one that is meant for your hair type.
Wash Day Routine
You may deem it is healthy to wash your hair every day; however, doing this strips your hair of its natural oils produced by the scalp leaving it frizzy and brittle. For most men, doing a shampoo wash twice or thrice a week is enough to keep a healthy scalp. If your hair gets greasy, consider water-only washes; on these days, you do not need to shampoo, this will cleanse the hair without shedding away the essential oils.
Handle With Care
You might get some satisfaction rubbing the moisture away with a towel, especially when in a hurry, this act weakens the hair’s texture leading to breakage. This is a fundamental cause of hair loss. Instead, it is advisable to pat your hair dry gently.
Also, it’s worth noting that excessive heat is bad for your hair strands. If a loss of thickness is already an issue, keep away from unnecessary heat. Be sure to use a heat protectant before applying direct heat to your hair.
Less is More!
This sentiment applies to many aspects of life, why not apply it when working towards healthy hair! Keep your hair styling products to the minimum. Too many products are not healthy for the hair. Product-build up weighs down on the hair strands making your hair appear flat and lead to hair thinning and hair loss. Be sure to shampoo your hair to remove excess product and start with step one to keep a healthy routine.
