To be attractive, you have to look after yourself. Yes, and men, too! That goes for everything: body, face, hands, skin. Professional cosmetics are the key to good grooming. And men need men’s cosmetics products whose manufacturers take into account male physiology
Today we will talk about products specifically for hair. They will help ensure the proper care of your hair at home. But before you go out and buy them at a barbershop, you need to learn how to use them. Here are a few expert tips.
1. HEAD WASHING
Wash your scalp when it’s dirty. Those with oily hair should wash daily. We recommend our DAILY PROTEIN BAXTER OF CALIFORNIA natural shampoo for oily hair. Such a gentle formulation can be used daily.
The important thing is to choose products suitable for your hair type. If your skin is flaky, it is best to choose specialist formulas rather than the mass market ‘for everyone’. An anti-dandruff shampoo, for example, is oddly enough for people with dandruff. PALL MALL BARBERS’ tea tree based toner could be the answer. For men with curly hair, opt for a natural shampoo for curly hair. They also make a shampoo for dry hair. It moisturizes and nourishes hair, giving it a healthy shine.
You should not use hot water when washing your hair because it can make it grow flat, lose its colour and make it fall out. Rinse with cool or lukewarm water.
2. PROTECT AND NOURISH
To keep hair looking as good as it does after washing, you’ll also need to do some work. We recommend applying a strengthening hair mask after washing. You’ll notice the result after the first application. A dry hair mask can help moisturise your hair. If your hair has become brittle or split, or even fallen out, your body is lacking in micronutrients. In this situation you need vitamins to strengthen your hair. Ask professionals at men’s hairdressing salons about the best formulas to choose.
In order to have less problems with your hair, we recommend doing a moisturising, nourishing hair-strengthening mask 1-2 times a week. Our men’s hairdressing salon FIRM will tell you how to do it properly. In addition to the above, we also recommend using a hair conditioner to strengthen your hair. After such compositions hair will be smooth, silky and easy to comb. Just like in the ads. A hair oil will help nourish the strands along its entire length.
Brushing should be handled carefully. This is especially true for men with fine hair and/or long hair. Avoid brushing hair when it’s wet as it can easily cause damage. Instead of tangling hair, it’s a good idea to detangle it. In order to avoid such problems you should use a professional hair conditioner. We recommend SPREKENHUS Argan oil conditioner.
It’s also important to take into account that a comb should be chosen individually for your hair type. How to choose will tell you in our barbershop in Kiev. Many customers choose POCKET COMB PROSPECTORS combs. The handcrafted tool gently separates tangles and also looks stylish.
5. POCKET COMB PROSPECTORS
Even attractive and healthy hairstyles (read: hair) need regular trimming. You’ll need a pair of scissors for this. Don’t forget that they have to be sharp. You can also periodically straighten your locks with a keratin hair treatment. This will increase strength and restore the natural structure.
Heads should be styled with professional hair products. Hair waxes, toners, gels and creams are suitable. We recommend PALL MALL BARBERS products. When creating hairstyles, we suggest using hairdryers, irons and curling irons as little as possible. They overheat the strands, which is very harmful and damages the structure of the hair.
If you’ve got a serious hair problem, you’re going to need a professional’s help. If so, a hair fluid can be a great help. Your FIRM Technician or your FIRM shop assistant can tell you how to apply the product. He or she can also tell you what you should do for your curly hair, and much more. We also advise you to use jojoba oil for your hair – it will bring back your natural shine.
In the cold season, it’s a bad idea to walk outdoors with wet hair. If you have no other choice, wear a hat and a scarf. Winter haircare is important because cold temperatures can quickly damage your hair. Thin hair needs a lot of care – it’s more vulnerable to the damaging effects of the climate.
On hot days, it’s important to protect hair from UV rays so that it doesn’t get in direct sunlight. Cover your head when the sun is at its hottest (between 12pm and 4pm). Avoid letting long strands fall unpinned in high winds, as they will tangle. It’s better to make a topknot or ponytail.
Our barbershop attendants can advise how to care for men’s long hair. NEVILLE styling spray helps to beautifully style medium-length hair at any time of year. It’ll keep your hair in place all day and won’t let the wind get in the way.
10. CUT YOUR HAIR AT
To keep your hair in good shape, it’s a good idea to cut it short once every 2-3 months. It is better not to do it yourself, but at a hairdresser. Thanks to this procedure, the strands will grow back better, smoother and will have a healthy shine.
Haircuts can also help you change your look. With a trendy hairstyle you’ll always be in the trend. But don’t overdo it – your hair also needs a rest.
Comb your hair gently. This is especially true for men with fine and/or long hair. Do not brush wet hair, as it is very easy to damage it. If your hair is tangled, do not pull it, but gently untangle it.
Wash your hair every three days, though rinse it out when you shower, whether you need to or not.
Comb your hair using a comb, or if it’s frizzy, use a comb with rubber tips.
