Are you giving your hair the attention it deserves?
Far too many men think styling their hair will take too much time and effort. But they couldn't be more wrong. With a simple style routine and a little care, it's easy to get great results, fast.
Read on for our top tips for an easy, simple style routine.
Look After Your Hair
Part of a good hair care and grooming routine is to look after it.
Do Regular Barber Visits
Don't put off going for a hair cut; a fresh cut is the place to start. Depending on how long you prefer to keep your hair, you should go around every 2-3 weeks.
If you've got short hair, you'll need to go more often. Or if you're rocking that mountain man look, you might not need to go for 4-6 weeks.
Wash Your Hair on a Regular Basis
Having a regular hair washing routine is vital for scalp health. It keeps it free of dirt, debris and any excess oils. But, how often you need to wash it will depend on your hair type.
If you have dry hair, only wash it once or twice a week. If your scalp is very oily, then you should wash it every other day to help regulate this.
Use Shampoos That Are Free of Chemicals
Your environment can damage your hair enough as it is, and you can't control that. But you can control the damage chemicals might cause by avoiding them in shampoos.
The fewer chemicals there are in your shampoo, the healthier your hair should be for it. Parabens and sulfates can irritate the scalp and skin. Stick to a shampoo for your hair type, that's gentle.
Don't Skip Conditioner
Shampoo alone won't cut it to get your hair looking its best. Include a natural men's hair conditioner to get the best, long-lasting results.
Conditioner nourishes and moisturizes your scalp and hair for a silky, healthy finish. Again, it's a very individual thing, but most men should use it about 3 times per week.
Get the Most Out of Your Hair.
Good hair health is vital to giving you a great hair look, but it won't do it on its own. Thankfully, there are products that will bring your hair up a level, and let you be the best you possible.
Many men have been put off pomade as they think they will need to be constantly working with their hair all day to keep the look they want. But with our Signature Pomade, that isn't the case. Thanks to its all day hold, you can live your life without worrying about looking your signature look.
The beauty of pomade is that you never need a large amount to get the look you want. In the morning, just get a small amount of pomade onto your hand, work it through your finders and run your fingers through your hair. Depending on the look you are going for, this can be done with wet or dry hair.
Pomade allows much more versatility of style than most other hair products. Applying more pomade with wetter hands will allow your to take your style back, creating the perfect "greaser" or "pompadour" looks. For a more matte look, dry hair and hands give you the control you need for adding texture, spikes, bedhead or anything else that you want.
Although our pomade will hold up all day, if you life does somehow mess up your style, it's no issue. If you need to touch up your look throughout the day, all you need to do is wet your finders and restyle. So no matter what happens in the day, you will always be ready to look your best.
If you are suffering with flat and lifeless hair, but don't want to really style it, then nothing gives better results than Texture Dust.
in the morning, all you need to do is add texture dust to your roots and comb or work it though your hair. If you want even more voume, then you just need to do is apply a little bit of heat with your hairdryer until you get the lift you want.
For the man on the go, we have packaged our texture dust into a handy travel pump sprayer. That means that you can always top up your style throughout the day. So if you re heading off for a date straight after work, or back to the office after a session at the gym, you are covered. Just a little spray and rework is all it takes to look as good as you did at the start of the day.
Nothing beats texture dust when it comes to keeping your look refreshed throught the day.
And even better, our texture dust does more than just help you style your hair. The peppermint oil helps keep your hair clean and healthy. By absorbing excess oil your hair will stay fresher for longer, and the anti-microbial properties of peppermint will clear away any itching or dryness.
