How to Wash Your Hair with the Correct Products
Washing your hair is something you’re probably pretty used to. You hop in the shower, lather up with some shampoo and spend a couple of minutes scrubbing your scalp before rinsing it all out.
That’s not exactly wrong, but there are definitely better ways to clean your locks that will ensure you’re getting rid of dirt and oil without over-drying or damaging your locks.
Starting with the correct products can make all the difference in how clean your mane actually gets. Try to use shampoos that are SLS-free, as they can strip natural oils.
Conditioner is also key if you have dry or damaged hair; it locks in moisture so even when the shampoo strips out dirt and oil, your hair won’t be left feeling brittle or frizzy.
Beard Care Basics
A beard is a symbol of masculinity and pride.
Beard care involves much more than simply shaving it off or letting it grow. Men need to know how to properly take care of their facial hair to maintain the look they want while still appearing well-groomed.
Wash Your Face and Beard
To start with, men should shower before they start messing around with facial hair; however, if you can’t shower, start by washing your face.
Do you have beard dandruff? Beard dandruff is usually caused by dry skin and can often benefit from a good exfoliation before showering.
If you have beard dandruff or are just looking to improve the quality of your facial hair, men should start using a high-quality shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for men’s beards.
Hydrate Your Beard and Skin
Next, men need to choose beard oil and shaving cream. Oil helps keep skin moisturized while the cream prevents ingrown hairs and razor burn for those who use them as it forms a protective barrier between your face and blade or shaver.
Style Your Beard
Men who still want to grow their facial hair but still want to keep it well-groomed should consider using a beard brush. This will help train the hair and spread natural oils that promote healthy growth.
Men with longer facial hair or those who like long beards can use waxes and butter to style their facial hair as they see fit for whatever look they prefer.
As you can see, there are plenty of ways to be a well-groomed man. Whether it’s with your hair or beard, the key is finding what works for you and then sticking with that routine!
