Men’s Hair Mistakes
#1: Being Rough With Your Scalp In The Shower
This is the number one offender for many guys. You’re rushing in the morning and end up scratching roughly through your scalp in the shower. It mightn’t seem like this would cause any issues, but you’re actually weakening your hair follicles and, likely, increasing your risks of dandruff. Try rubbing through with the palms of your hands instead, you’ll find it promotes circulation which can make your hair grow nice and thick.
#2: Washing too Much
This may come as a surprise to many guys, but you should really only be washing hair once or twice a week. Most shampoos, particularly the cheaper ones, will strip your hair of natural oils and protections. While conditioner will replace much of this, nothing beats the real thing. So keep washing to a minimum!
#3: Do Not Use 2-in-1 Shampoo/Conditioner
Ignore your so called ‘good deal’ and invest in a proper shampoo and conditioner. In order for your hair to be properly cleaned up, the pores in your scalp need to be opened. This is where your shampoo comes in. It helps to get rid of and product or dirt build up. Conditioner is needed after to add a moisturizing agent and to close up those hair cuticles.
Your 2-in-1 product might be opening and cleaning the cuticles but it doesn’t handle the closing part well. Hence, your hair ends up dirtier anyway. You needn’t have bothered. This is the ultimate bad hair for men offender.
#4: Using Product in Wet Hair
Water dilutes the product, obviously. This makes it way less effective and can cause clumping and other undesirable effects. Unless the instructions specify other words, your hair should be at least towel dry before you add any products. This will give you way more control – Even if going for a wet look, let the product do the work.
Just as with fragrance you probably need to be a lot more conservative than you think when it comes to applying product. You can always put more in, but start out with small amounts of anything you’re using and apply as needed. Invest in a decent comb and styling products be they waxes, gels or clays that suit your hair thickness and style.
#6: The Wrong Hairstyle
Movies, music videos, fashion runways are all guilty of setting men off in the wrong inspirational trajectory. Just accept it guys, some styles just aren’t for us so don’t get too carried away. Be honest with yourself, hopefully, your hairdresser will be honest with you. Approach emo hairstyle and rats-tail with caution.
#7: Home Dye
The kits are on the supermarket shelves, the YouTube guides make it look so easy. Take a personal advice: Leave it to the professionals. Fluro yellow attempts at bleached hair, goth dark blacks that wash out skin tone and warm tones that actually bring out greys rather than hiding them. These are all classic hair mistakes that men make.
While it can be accomplished if you know what you’re doing, if you’re a dying newbie – things have a penchant for going very wrong.
#8: Overgrown Sideburns
Do you want to make a statement with your sideburns? Wondering what’s the ideal sideburn length? In general, it’s better to do what fits your style, but opting for excessively long or blatantly short sideburns is typically best avoided. Anything with bushy sideburns, or a disastrous no sideburns haircut is really not the way to go.
Let’s bring an end to hair mistakes for good, just cut them right out. You can always find the right style for your hair if you stay informed, consult your stylist and get the best recommendation.
All things considered, the best regime is down to you. The above care guide should spare you the embarrassment of becoming the man who wears helmet without even wearing a helmet. No-one wants to be that guy.
