8 Hair Care Tips for Men

We always say that a man’s hairstyle is the most important part of his look, because it’s a reflection of how he takes care of himself. Having a well-groomed hair and stylish hairdo gives you self-confidence wherever you go and whomever you talk to.

With this, we’re going to list eight simple steps you can do to take care of your hair.


#1 Wash your hair

Washing your hair and using shampoo everyday may remove natural oils in your scalp and expose your hair to harmful chemicals. You get a free pass here because men should wash their hair only 3 to 4 times a week!

On the other hand, men who extensively use hair styling products everyday should rinse their hair daily to prevent build-up of dirt and residue in their scalp. 

#2 Get a haircut regularly

#3 Towel-dry hair correctly

GATSBY Gents should be gentle and pat their hair until it dries with a clean towel instead of aggressively wiping it. Recklessly wiping your hair may cause damage and may even lead to hair loss.


#4 Wear a swimming cap when dipping in a pool

Chlorine has adverse effects on the hair, removing natural oils that protect the hair and scalp. To avoid this, wear a swimming cap or just avoid dipping your head in the pool for too long.


#5 Don't overdo the hairdryer

Some men use blow dryers too often, damaging their hair and can even lead to hair loss. To avoid this, put the power of the blow dryer on the lowest setting, or better yet, just let it air dry for a more natural, healthy hair.

#6 Avoid touching your hair too often

Touching your hair too often, especially with dirty or greasy hands, might lead to frizz and breakage as your fingers can steal away essential oils from your hair and replace them with dirt.


#7 Determine what type of hair type you have

Knowing what type of hair you have can make or break your hair care routine. Those with curly and long hair must use more conditioner or hair relaxer while men with straight and thinning hair should not put too many products such as shampoo in their hair.
