Who said taking care of your hair is a girlie thing to do? Do you think if you are bald you’d be famous with the ladies (unless you are Vin Diesel)? So you should have a hair care routine. You may ask what that is. Don’t fret we are here to help you. Here are very simple, easy to follow and affordable, measures you must follow for healthy hair.
Brush Your Hair
Brush/comb before you wash your hair. This way you get rid of all knots and tangles (if any) and there is less hair breakage. Brush your hair sometime in between the day and then at night before going to sleep. Brushing/combing your hair blood circulation to your scalp, thus strengthening the roots.
Shampoo Your Hair
Most men tend to wash their hair daily. This is a big no. N O. You are washing off natural oils from the scalp. These oils help to strengthen hair and moisturizing scalp. Dry scalp leads to dandruff. You may ask how many times a week should I wash my hair. That depends on your hair type.
Thick hair: Every alternate or third day depending on the texture of the hair.
Oily hair: If your scalp gets oily the day you shampoo, then you must shampoo daily.
Fine hair: Twice a week
Normal hair: Thrice a week should do the trick.
How To Shampoo Your Hair?
Take pea size or dime size (if your hair is too oily) shampoo, apply it to the wet hair and massage it for a minute and rinse off completely.
Simple tip: Change your shampoo every 3-4 months because your hair gets accustomed to the current shampoo and stops giving best results.
Conditioning Your Hair
You should not apply conditioner every time you shampoo. Conditioners leave a residue on your hair, which makes them heavy and hair fall prone. Use it only twice a week.
How to use a conditioner?
Take pea size (not more than that) apply to the tips of your hair after shampoo, specifically avoid the roots unless mentioned on the product. Rinse off completely.
Oil Your Hair
Oiling hair is an essential part of hair care routine. It helps moisturize the scalp and strengthen roots of your hair. Best oil to use would be coconut oil. It contains medium chain fatty acids which penetrate scalp easily than other oils. Almond oil, castor oil and argon oil are few other oils which you can use.
So how many times a week should you oil your hair?
Thick hair: Twice a week for 4-5 hours is enough.
Oily hair: Twice a week for 3-4 hours.
Fine hair: Every alternate for 4 hours if possible. But that doesn’t seem achievable so thrice a week for 4-5 hours.
Normal hair: Thrice a week for 4-6 hours.
If you are a person who uses a lot of hair products, then take a minute to rethink. These hair products are leaving a residue on your scalp making it itchy, irritating and greasy.
You don’t want that. Okay, we get it, how are you supposed to get that perfect “just got out of the bed” look. Just remember less is more. Try to use hair products less number of times.
Take a break from using hair products such as hair gels, hair sprays, etc.
If you have a beard or are planning to grow one, beware that it too requires proper care. Without proper care, it may result into irritation, dryness, itching and beard dandruff. Yes, you read it right, BEARD DANDRUFF!
