Hair care for men
Many men tend to just grab whichever bottle is closest in the shower; regardless whether this is a shower gel or a shampoo, to them it does not matter. Well men, we have something new: which is definitely worth picking!
Shampoo for men
Men usually use styling products such as gel, wax or paste to style their hair. Especially a paste is sometimes hard to rinse out, even with a regular shampoo. The best thing you can do is use a cleansing shampoo or another shampoo which is especially designed to remove excess styling products, such as the Mr. Ducktail shampoo by Hairgum. This shampoo thoroughly cleanses hair and is ideal for men who regularly use gel or wax.
For men who just want to use one product for their hair and body, there are 2-in-1 and even 3-in-1 products. These products are especially designed to clean both hair and body thanks to their tailored formulas. A good all-in-one shampoo/shower gel is the Hair & Body Shampoo by Schwarzkopf.
A regularly occurring problem for ageing men is hair loss. Even women suffer from hair loss, especially when we shift from one season into the next. In men hair loss is often something genetic which runs in the family and there is little that can be done about it. What you can do however, is help slow down the rate at which you are losing hair. Ingredients such as caffeine stimulate hair growth and strengthen the roots of the hair. A well-known brand for its proven effect on hair loss is Alpecin.
Conditioner for men
Many men think that conditioner is a thing for women, because it makes your hair soft and supple. While this is indeed a beneficial effect (for women), the main purpose of a conditioner is to close the hair cuticles. A conditioner protects your hair from being damaged by the cold, wind or styling products. After all, you don’t want your hairspray or gel going inside your hair fibres. A conditioner also prevents you hair from frizzing or fluffing and makes it easier to style. Which is something of importance to both women and men! There are a variety of conditioners for men with fresh and manly fragrances such as those by American Crew.
