We’re about to welcome 2021, and what better way to start the year than to cultivate good hair habits. Taking care of your hair and scalp is a year-long practice, and it’s a must especially if you have long hair. Don’t worry, though! If you don’t know how to start, here are long hair care tips for men to help you get nourished and healthy hair in 2021.

Long hair needs more TLC, as every inch needs to be clean, nourished, and healthy. If you have long, thick hair, you have higher chances of getting sweat, excess oil, and dirt trapped on your scalp, making you more prone to dandruff. To prevent this, use a shampoo that fights dandruff while cleansing your hair at the same time.

Editor’s tip: Wash your hair with CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. It is formulated with Bio-Nutrium 10 that refreshes and activates your scalp’s protective layer to minimize the occurrence of dandruff. It also leaves you feeling fresh and presko.

2. Don’t rub your hair with a towel

Did you know that regular towels can damage your hair? The friction between your hair and the rough texture of the towel can cause hair breakage. Instead of using a regular bath towel, use a softer, smoother one to gently pat your hair instead of rubbing it. While it’s always best to air dry your hair, you can also use a hairdryer. Just make sure to put it in the lowest heat setting to minimize hair damage.

3. Deep-cleanse once in a while.

Depending on how active you’ve been throughout the week, you should include deep cleansing as part of your hair care routine. Take that extra mile in making sure your hair and scalp are free of dirt and product residue, so you’ll always feel fresh and clean wherever you go.

We don’t mean chopping off lengthy amounts of hair. What we mean is to have your ends regularly trimmed to maintain your hair’s body and style while getting rid of split ends.

The longer the mane, the bigger the commitment. But relax! Just make these tips part of your hair care routine, and you’ll rock healthy and well-nourished hair in 2021.
