Men Hair Care and Styling Tips and Guides

Hair Care – Dry Carefully

It’s always important to have proper hair care and style. Towel Drying is one of the leading causes of damage to men’s hair. Guys love to take a towel and rub that hair like crazy. The problem here is that when hair is wet, it is also very easily damaged. When “rubbing” the hair with a towel, some of the hairs become tangled in the threads of the towel and are stretched to the breaking point, causing damage to the cuticle and split ends. To minimize damage from towel drying, shake out the excess water and then stroke your hair with the towel in the direction it grows. This may take a bit longer but it’s worth it. Remember, though, the damage that is already done cannot be fixed, but after a few haircuts, you’ll see the difference. Blow Drying is also a leading cause of hair damage. It can dry out the hair and scalp. Haircuts for Men is just not a big fan of the blow dryer, but if you must blow, then follow these tips. First, to prevent damage from blow drying, apply a thermal styling spray to the hair. This will make it easier to comb and protect against heat damage. Next, make sure to hold the dryer 6-10 inches away from the hair and move it briskly from side to side. This will keep the hair from becoming damaged by heat. Finally try to avoid drying the hair completely. Leaving the hair slightly damp will prevent drying out the hair.

Avoid Too Much Chemical Products

Repeatedly coloring or perming hair can leave it damaged, dry, and dull. I recommend avoiding at-home chemical products and seek a good stylist for such services. A stylist will know how to properly prepare you hair and choose the best products for your hair type. Results from a trained professional will almost always look more natural than those which can be produced at home.

Stay Healthy

Having a healthy fulfilled lifestyle can be the caused of a a healthy hair. Eat well, exercise, drink plenty of water, get enough sleep, and reduce stress in your life. By doing so can result to a healthier scalp and great looking hair. Living well and staying healthy will also increase the rate of hair growth.

Wash Daily

Keeping your scalp clean is key to minimizing clogged pores and other scalp problems. Use a gentle shampoo and always wash your hair daily, working the shampoo into the hair and scalp for about two minutes. Don’t worry about the “rinse and repeat” part. One good wash should do the work.

Comb Properly

While your hair is still wet, use only a wide-tooth comb to avoid stretching and tearing your hair. Use a brush only when your hair is completely dry. As you comb, make sure you pull gently instead of combing quickly so you don’t damage your hair. Men’s hair is just as fragile as women’s hair when it is wet.

Make Hair Grow Faster and Stronger

As I stated before to keep a healthy hair you must have a healthy lifestyle same goes if you’d like to a faster and stronger hair growth. Living a stress free lifestyle will promote a faster growth of the hair. The hair is often a reflection of the entire body. A body that is healthy and well maintained will likely have hair that is strong, shiny, and “healthy looking.”

Avoid Tight Hats

A tight hat (or ponytail) can cause a condition in which hair is pulled out of the scalp. If worn long enough, the damage can become permanent. A tight hat or ponytail can also cause damage to the cuticle and breakage.

Styling Tips and Guides

We all know men loves to keep their hair style whether it is long or short. But remember to pick the right styling product for your hair. your hairstyle should be a direct reflection of your lifestyle — not the number of candles on your birthday cake. So, if you picked your own clothes this morning, you’ve basically picked your haircut. Here are some tips to help put some of those tools, products and your own personal style to use.


Mousse is great for any man’s hairstyle and it can create practically any desired look. When used on wet hair, it will give you a sleek, wet look, with shine. When used on dry hair, it will help shape, mold and hold your hair in place with a more natural look. Mousse can also provide volume for men with thinner or fine hair. Wear mousse on a daily basis to create a natural and easy-to-manipulate hairstyle.


Gels are usually the best option to create a wet, sleek look. Quality gels will have ”memory” once dry, enabling comb-through that can provide a structured, yet dry appearance. Cheap supermarket gels tend to break and flake off in the hair, so it’s important to get the good stuff.


Waxes offer a more aggressive hold. It is a great choice for lending a shine and control to short hair cuts, they’re also perfect for managing very thick hair. They can create the same styles and give the same shine as a gel or mousse, but the hair will remain pliable, unlike gels or mousses which cause the hair to be stiff. The flexibility of wax-based hair styling products allows users to fix and restyle their hair throughout the day by just running their fingers through their hair. Because these products don’t have water in them, they don’t wash out easily.

Pomades are perfect or sleek, well-groomed styles or shorter, texture styles. They also give shine and separation to long hair. Because of its thickness, pomade offers the style excellent control over the hair. It also allows curly hair to be straightened. It can give the hair a shiny appearance and, unlike many other hair products, leaves the hair greasy to the touch. It may require more than one washing to remove all traces of it from the hair.


Hairsprays are first-rate options for guys with thin or thinning hair. These sprays create the illusion of volume and can lock a style in place. The majority of men should avoid using heavy hairsprays that often weigh hair down — and instead pick a lighter formula.
