Hair care isn’t just a woman’s business. It is everyone’s—including men’s. You may not have hair as long as your girlfriend’s, but that doesn’t mean you just let it have a life of its own. It’s both a matter of hygiene and scalp care, especially when the sun is at its hottest and brightest. Don’t worry, taking care of your hair and scalp is simple and easy. Here are some hair care tips for men for summer and beyond.
Simple Hair Care Tips for Men This Season
1. A wash a day keeps dandruff away
As a go-getter, you’re probably always out and about in the bustling, polluted city. All that grime and sweat from a day’s action—especially in a hot and humid country like the Philippines—may cause you to have an oily scalp and put you at a higher risk of dandruff. A greasy scalp is a big no-no, so clock in those shower hours and rinse daily to stay fresh.
Editor’s tip: Give your hair and scalp a thorough deep cleansing while keeping dandruff at bay by using CLEAR Deep Cleanse Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. It has activated charcoal and mint that gives you that clean, fresh after-shower feeling.
2. Keep your scalp from drying out
Watch out when you turn up the heat on your shower—rinsing with overly hot water can damage your scalp. This, along with excessive blow drying, makes your scalp in a weaker condition, leaving it dry. Instead, wash your hair with cool or lukewarm water to keep bath time relaxing while going easy on your scalp.
3. Massage for a healthy scalp
Massages get you relaxed at the end of a busy day. A head massage improves blood circulation, which carries essential nutrients to the scalp and removes wastes. It even helps distribute your natural scalp oils to the rest of your locks, so you get both a healthy scalp and healthy-looking hair.
4. Live an active lifestyle
If you’ve got that fitspiration lifestyle going, here’s one more perk to working out: it helps give you healthy-looking locks and stimulates hair growth by increasing the flow of beneficial nutrients to your scalp. A high-intensity workout packed with burpees, battle ropes, and crunches rid your scalp of wastes, while stretching promotes better flow of nutrients to your scalp. Abs aren’t the only reason to sweat it out—a sexier body means a stronger scalp.
Editor’s tip: Just came from the gym? Wash your hair with CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. Aside from mint that refreshes your scalp, it has Bio-Nutrium 10 that helps stimulate the natural protective layer of your scalp. This way, you guard your scalp against dandruff while staying cool and fresh.
5. Shield your scalp from the sun
We all take special care to shield our face and body from UV rays by applying sunscreen. But what have you done for your scalp? This neglected area of your skin needs just as much protection from the sun, so keep your scalp covered to prevent it from prolonged sun-damage. When going out, wear a cap or a hat for that much-needed cover.
6. Go for a short, clean cut
Men sweat more, and men’s scalp produces more sebum that’s why there are more susceptible to dandruff. When temperatures are rising, keeping your hair short can help reduce sweat and oil buildup on your scalp. And when you can’t visit your barber for a trim, you can do your own haircut at home.
7. Put your hair up
If you’re digging long or medium-length hair, put it up so you’ll feel more presko and more comfortable during summer. A classic and easy-to-do man bun is perfect. If you want to try something new, go for the samurai bun. It’s the same as putting your hair in a high bun; just wrap a rope hair accessory around your man bun to complete the look.
Editor’s tip: Get energized every time you shower with Dove Men + Care Refreshing Clean Shampoo. It helps wash away dirt and excess oil from your scalp and leaves you with a cool and refreshed feeling.
You don’t need a complicated hair care routine to have healthy hair. Just remember these simple hair care tips for men and you won’t need to deal with dandruff, dry scalp, or rough and dry strands whatever the season.
