1. Common Hair Issue: Taming Cowlicks

That piece of hair that just won’t stay down, how does one get it to cooperate? Cowlicks are really hard to deal with, and you probably just end up sticking to hairstyles that are meant to be styled in the direction your cowlicks fall. Our advice: Never settle! If you want to change up your look, by all means, do it!

Cowlicks begin at the root of your hair, so it’s best to blow-dry your hair in the direction you want it to fall while it’s still damp. To style, use a pomade to help your hair stay in place. For control, use a fingertip amount of Axe Clean Cut Look: Classic Pomade on your dry hair. Then, style your hair the way you prefer.

2. Common Hair Issue: Treating Dandruff

Hairstyles, like combovers, curtain bangs, and side part haircuts all have one thing in common (other than being dapper hairstyles, of course). Each of these hairstyles reveals your scalp! If you deal with scalp issues like dandruff, you probably stick to slicked back styles that cover up your embarrassing issue.

A simple solution: Use hair products that work to treat your dandruff. Before styling, wash your hair with Suave Men 2-in-1 Anti-Dandruff Classic Clean Shampoo + Conditioner that’ll work to help get rid of flakes.

3. Common Hair Issue: Thicken Thin Hair

Sure, there are many ways to style your hair to help thin hair appear thicker, but, there are also shampoos that help thicken the appearance of your hair. Dove Men + Care Thick and Strong Fortifying 2In1 Shampoo + Conditioner makes hair visibly thicker and stronger. Give it a shot on your next wash day.

4. Common Hair Issue: Control Frizzy Texture

If you’re one of those guys that don’t appreciate an undone hair texture, frizz is the enemy. Keep your hairstyles frizz-free with hair products that tame the fuzz. For straight hair, opt for the Axe Smooth Look: Shine Pomade to create sleek styles. For curly textured hair, use men’s hair products like the Dove Men + Care Control Gel to help create controlled and defined hairstyles.

5. Common Hair Issue: Lack of Volume

A blowdryer may not be your choice of hair tool, but it can totally help you nail your hairstyles. Use a blowdryer to boost volume to your hair before creating hot hairstyles like pompadour’s and quiffs. Need help? Check out our handy blowdrying guide for men.

6. Common Hair Issue: Moisturizing Dry Hair

Lackluster hairstyles are not cool. Kick your dry hair woes to the curb with hair products that add moisture. Use Dove Men + Care Aqua Impact Fortifying Shampoo to cleanse and moisturize your hair.
