The hair is not alive, so can not be healthy. I prefer the term “good” hair. Once damage has occurred, the only way to repair the hair is cut to length damaged. Of course, a healthy-looking head of hair starts with a hairstyle they want, but that’s just the beginning. Like your car, your hair needs maintenance in order to preserve strength, elasticity and shine. The following are my tips for hair care for men.
Toweling is a major cause of damage to the hair of men. When hair is wet, is very susceptible to damage. When the hair is rubbed with a towel, some of the hairs become entangled in the threads of the towel and stretched to the breaking point, causing damage to the cuticle (the layer of gravel-like exterior of the hair), curled, and split ends. Properly dry towel, shake off excess water and stroke their hair in the direction it grows, instead of rubbing the hair with the towel.
The drying takes a little longer this way but after a short haircut, you will notice the difference in how your hair looks. The use of dryers is also a common cause of hair damage. Excessive blow drying can dry your hair and scalp. If you must use a blow dryer, apply a detangling spray or thermal design to cover the hair and protect it from damage, use a wide tooth comb to avoid pulling, and always leave the hair slightly damp. This will prevent over-drying the hair.
Nothing feels better than a hot shower, but it is wreaking havoc on your hair and scalp. Very hot water strips too much essential oil hair and scalp and lead to dryness.
Avoid chemical treatments
Repeatedly coloring or perming hair can leave damaged, dry and boring.
I recommend avoiding chemicals at home and find a good stylist for such services. A stylist knows how to prepare hair properly and choose the best products for your hair type. The results of a trained professional is almost always a more natural look that can be produced in the country.
Use a good shampoo and conditioner
A good shampoo and conditioner will help cleanse the hair, add moisture and elasticity and smoothing the cuticle to add shine.
Use the right tools
Do not use a brush on wet hair when the hair is more vulnerable. When combing wet hair, use a wide tooth comb and gently work the knots.
Avoid hot tools such as hair dryers or irons that can dry and damage hair.
The condition of your hair is often a reflection of the overall health of your body. Eating well, exercising, drinking lots of water, enough sleep, and reduce stress in your life. Doing so will result in a healthy scalp and great looking hair. Living well and staying healthy will also increase the rate of hair growth.
Avoid tight hats
A hat too (or ponytail) can cause “traction alopecia”, a condition in which hair is removed from the scalp. If used long enough, the damage may be permanent. A hat or tight ponytails can also cause damage to the cuticle and breaking.
Keep it trimmed
Since the only way to eliminate damaged hair is to cut the damaged section, keep your short hair regularly will help eliminate split ends. Even if you are growing your hair, make sure you cut it in six weeks, but it is clear that your barber or stylist who want hair just far enough away to eliminate the damage.
Low moisture content and protein in the hair can cause frizz. To minimize this problem, use a good moisturizing conditioner. A serum polishing, smoothing can be applied to add shine and gives the hair a smoother appearance.
