With the right products, you can protect your hair from dandruff and split ends among other things.

Long hair needs more TLC as they have higher risk to hair damage. There’s dryness, dullness, oiliness, dandruff, and split ends. To prevent all of these, you must nourish your hair with the nutrients and vitamins it needs.

Editor’s tip: Choose products that are made especially for men. CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men is formulated with Bio-Nutrium 10 to refresh and activate your scalp’s protective layer, while CLEAR Anti-Hairfall Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men is made with Ginseng Strength Technology to make your hair stronger and thicker.

2. Don’t aggressively dry.

Did you know that regular towels can be a threat to your hair? Yes, rubbing your hair with a nubby towel can cause damage to your hair. Instead of using a regular towel, pat your wet hair with a microfiber towel until it’s damp or dry. While it’s always best to air dry your hair, you can also use drying tools. Just make sure to spritz on some protectant spray so your hair is spared from damage.

Editor’s tip: May it be from blow driers or flat irons, you must prep with a heat protectant like TONI&GUY Heat Protection Mist. This spray can protect hair from heat damage so you won’t have to deal with fried-looking strands later on.

3. Use a dry shampoo.

We understand that it’s hot in the Philippines, but truth be told, it’s not really great to wash your hair every day. Over-washing could leave your hair stripped of its natural oils and nutrients. And so, it’s best to strategically space out your showers. Aside from the fact it’ll help you save water and shampoo, it will also keep your hair from becoming dry and dull. Don’t want your hair to get oily and sticky? Refresh your hair using a good dry shampoo. It will be your best friend in between showers to remove dirt and excess oil.

Editor’s tip: Use TRESemmé Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo in-between hair washes. Its powder-based formula absorbs dirt and oil, leaving your hair clean and full of body.

4. Deep-clease 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. You don’t wan to be mistaken for a hermit, do you? We bet not!

The longer the mane, the bigger the commitment. This should be not as dreadful as it sounds. Just take some extra effort to show and give your hair the TLC it needs and you’re good to go. With these long hair care tips for men, we hope we’ve helped made this task easier for you.
