Hair Care Routine for Men - Men Need Me Time Too

You may feel like hair care routines are for women, but trust us, hair is hair and it does not care who’s head it is on!  So there are some very fundamental things that everyone needs to have in their hair care routine.


Tips for Keeping Your Hair Healthy

Before we get into the men’s hair care routine, we want to provide some tips and advice about hair care in general.

1. Treat Your Scalp!

You know how plants need good dirt to grow healthy?  Well, don’t take this literally when it comes to your scalp, but the concept is the same.  For something to grow, it needs a healthy base.  So, when it comes to your hair being healthy, scalp care is key.  Failure to keep your scalp clean opens the door for nasty bacteria that will impact your hair growth.

2. Don’t wash your hair in excess!  

Over washing your hair can strip the hair of the natural oils that it needs to stay healthy.  So how do you know when you are washing your hair like you should?  Well, to start, it depends on your hair type and how much oil your hair produces. 

  • Straight and/or thin hair? This hair type needs the most frequent washing.  The natural oils that build up on straight hair make your hair appear greasy.
  • Wavy or curly hair? You fair a bit better, as this hair tends to be drier. The oil doesn’t coat the strands as easily so washing a few times a week is recommended for you.
  • African-American hair? This hair type needs to be washed the least.  In fact, overwashing can damage your hair and possibly lead to hair loss.  It is recommended that this hair type be washed no more than once a week or every other week.
3. Oil doesn’t always = bad

Like we mentioned above, some oil is needed to keep your hair healthy.  However, too much oil build up can do just the opposite. If you find that your hair naturally builds up a lot of oil, you will find that washing your hair more frequently will be just what the doctor ordered!
