Let face it, men don’t particularly have a habit of taking care of hair. We let it grow, we go to the barber to have it cut, and we get whatever shampoo and conditioner that might be good for our hair. Now, this has been the general train of thought for most men since our fathers, father, but maybe we do have to man up and change this way of behavior before we end up looking like Jean Luke Picard of the Starship Enterprise. With that being said, bald is beautiful, but if you want to keep those luscious locks of yours you may want to take some advice from the experts at AZ Hair Restoration on How To Keep Your Hair Healthy.
Stay Away from the Hair Dryers.
Drying your hair incorrectly can lead to one of the biggest causes of damage to men’s hair. Hair retains water and when soaked, it is highly susceptible to damage. When you rub your har with a towel, the hair stands can tend to become threaded and become stretched to the breaking point, causing damage to the follicle. Pat your hair to prevent damage from occurring.
Blow drying is also a common cause of damage to the hair. Consistent use of a hair dryer will cause an environment that damages your hair. If you must use a blow dryer, use a product that will keep your hair soft and has some sort of thermal protectant. You should use a wide-tooth comb to prevent pulling, and always leave the hair slightly damp.
Keep Your Look Natural.
As with all hair, you should reframe from coloring as much as possible. The chemicals in the dye are very damaging to your hair and can dry out, weaken, and thin the hair strand. It’s better if you are trying to go for a new look that you change the hairstyle completely instead of dying.
If you do decide to dye your hair you should allow a professional to do it. The stylist will make sure they use the proper dye and properly prep your hair for the color that you are looking to use on your hair. This is important because not everyone has the same hair type.
The Right Shampoo and Conditioner.
As mentioned, men don’t normally have the greatest of judgment when it comes to the product that they use on their hair. To help speed up the process of getting out of the shower they will even use dual hair and body wash products. But if you are looking to keep your hair healthy, you should really be selective of the shampoo and conditioners you use in your hair. You can prolong the effects of receding and balding and feed your hair the things that it needs instead of striping it of the things that make it already shiny and full looking.
You Are What You Eat.
It should come as no surprise that a life lived in wellness that adds benefits to your health would mean great benefit to your hair. Staying fit, drinking a lot of water, and never smoking isn’t just going to improve the health and volume of your hair. You can even help your hair even further by taking supplements like Biotin to bring life to your hair. It even will help will the overall health of your nails as well. This, of course, would only be something you take if you are truly serious about the health of your hair and nails but every little bit count.
