The men’s grooming market is continuing to thrive, with Business Wire expecting the market value to reach $78.6 Billion by 2023.
A key reason for this is hair care. Not only are more products being sold, but there’s also been a significant rise in new barbershops opening to keep up with demand.
But there’s plenty you can do to keep your hair looking its best. In this blog post, we look at four ways.
Wash your hair (but not too much)
We shouldn’t have to tell you the importance of washing your hair – it’s basic hygiene after all!
But for this reason, some people take it too far by deciding to wash their hair every day.
Why is this a problem? Washing your hair too often strips its natural oils, leaving it dry which increases the chances of getting dandruff. Let’s face it, no-one wants that!
Instead, it’s recommended that you shampoo every third day. On top of this, you should condition your hair daily to keep it soft.
Choose your shampoo wisely
Walking into a supermarket, it can be overwhelming to see the choice of shampoos you can buy.
They all offer something different. Some have different scents, some specific to certain hair types.
So, what you should go for? For a start, a lot depends on your budget. Can you afford top of the range? Or do you prefer a bargain?
Or when you add up all the grooming products you use every day, does it get expensive? Will adding another one to the mix push your budget to the limit?
Don’t worry, there is a solution. You just need a product that is multipurpose. One that can wash your beard, hair and body.
Price shouldn’t be your only consideration though. You also want to choose a shampoo that only contains natural, organic ingredients that won’t damage your hair.
Find the right hair product for you
Keeping your hair clean is one thing. But once you’re out the shower, you’ll need to think about styling your hair.
Even if you have short hair, you’ll still need to use the right product to get your desired look.
Naturally, you’ll look towards the many pomades, waxes and gels that are on the market these days.
But why not go for something a little different? Here are a few products you may not have heard of:
Curl kicker– Can you guess what hair type this is for? Yes, it’s for curls! This product is perfect for showing them off.
Loc hold– A lot of the time, hairstyles fall flat after a few hours. Loc hold can stop this happening.
Molding putty– Sometimes your hair just needs a little lift. Molding putty can add texture and volume to the flattest of hair.
Which one you choose, depends on the style you want to go for. For a slicked back look try loc hold or molding putty for spikes. Once that’s decided, you’re all set.
