The type of hair that your born with and the hairstyle that you choose should affect the type of shampoo that you buy. Most women know this. Unfortunately, men don’t get the same grooming tips growing up.
If you don’t know anything about your shampoo, hair type or hairstyle, then you have quite a bit to learn. By the end of this article, though, you’ll know how to choose the right shampoo for your hair and personal style.
What Type of Hair Do You Have?
There are a lot of unique hair types, but most professionals categorize men’s hair into:
You also need to consider whether you have dry or oily hair. If you have dry hair, then you may need to use a product that will add moisture. If you have oily hair, then you may need to avoid certain products or, at least, use them infrequently.
The Perfect Shampoo for Your Hair
First, let’s dismiss all shampoo-conditioner products. Every shampoo that promises to condition your hair while washing it will leave your locks feeling heavy. If you have any of these abominations in your bathroom, go ahead and throw them out.
Instead, you want HCO1 Shampoo that’s made from the finest ingredients to keep your hair healthy. When you order BSG’s HCO1 Shampoo, you get a product that will clean your scalp while moisturizing the skin.
HCO1 Shampoo also contains a proprietary blend that promotes hair growth. The blend of ingredients works well for all men. If you’ve noticed thin or bald spots, then HCO1 Shampoo will help those areas recover. If you have a full head of hair, the shampoo will make sure that it stays healthy and continues growing.
You May Need Other Products for Your Style
Shampoo is an essential part of your grooming technique, but you may need other products to compliment HCO1 Shampoo. HCO1 Texture Liniment, for instance, is a fortified cream that gives you medium hold. It’s perfect for people with short- and medium-length hair who want enough hold to last throughout the day.
For even more hold, add a small amount of HCO1 Pomade to your hair while you style it. Pomade is perfect for hairstyles that require a lot of body.
Learn to Wash Your Hair Properly
- Spending 1 to 2 minutes scrubbing all parts of your scalp and hair.
- Applying conditioner and leave it in your hair while you wash your face.
- Patting, but never rubbing, your hair dry with a clean, soft towel.
Perhaps most importantly, remember to follow the advice of Jonathan Van Ness, one of the most popular men’s style leaders. According to him, you shouldn’t wash your hair too often. At most, you should wash it every other day. If you want shiny hair, then try to wash your hair every four days.
By limiting the number of times that you wash your hair, you can improve its health. Frequent washing strips hair of natural, healthy oils. Washing can also cause damage to the hair’s structure.
You can keep your hair clean without washing it. Just let water run through your hair during your showers. The water will remove most of the dirt and pollutants that you don’t want.
Since hair and style can vary so much between individuals, you should schedule an appointment at BSG to talk to a professional. Your stylists can give you tips about how to wash your hair and what products will work best for you.
