This may come as a shock to some, but did you know you don’t need to wash your hair every day? That said, you should be washing a few times a week. To get the most out of those washes you need to ensure you’re using quality products that meet your specific hair type’s needs. What may work on one man’s hair, may not work on another’s. Here is what you need to look for in a shampoo based on your hair type:
Thinning and Balding
If you’ve hit a point in life where you’ve noticed your once thriving hair is beginning to lessen, you want a shampoo that does one of two things – prevents and/or slows down hair loss or thickens the hair creating the illusion of a fuller head of hair. Choosing a shampoo like the LUMIN Advanced Keratin Recovery Shampoo, which stimulates hair growth, and promotes a clean, healthy scalp, and added volume is what is best for this hair type.
Thinning and Balding Hair Tip: While we all know the importance of a good shampoo to have healthy hair, many men with thinning and balding hair completely forget about conditioner!
As we naturally age, moisture becomes harder to hold onto. Incorporating a conditioner into your hair washing routine will nourish, protect, and ensure a healthy scalp for recovery shampoos to do their best work!
The problem many men face with fine hair is the appearance that it’s even more fine- this is actually due to oil. Greasy hair is not your friend. Similar to thinning hair, you want a shampoo that will cause your hair to appear thicker. You need a strengthening shampoo such as GROWN ALCHEMIST Strengthening Shampoo 0.2, which is an advanced formulation that strengthens hair follicles and repairs weak hair.
Fine Hair Tip: With fine hair being one of the more oily hair types, we here at HommeSkin are huge fans of double shampooing!
What is double shampooing you may ask? It's simple really- just shampoo your hair twice while you're in the shower. Depending on how often you like to wash your hair, oil and product can really build up. Shampooing your hair twice ensures a clean scalp free of anything that weighs fine hair down.
When it comes to thick hair, you may notice your hair drying out often, leaving it looking dull. Opting for a shampoo that nourishes and hydrates, while also gently stripping away excess oil and dirt is the key. A great choice for thick hair is the Nourishing - Shampoo 0.6 from GROWN ALCHEMIST, a gentle nutrient-rich formulation that leaves hair clean, shiny and nourished.
Thick Hair Tip: Half the battle of achieving clean hair is making sure it's shampooed correctly, but thick hair needs a little extra TLC. Thick hair can be easily weighed down by excess product build up, so spend an extra few minutes in the shower really scrubbing your scalp clean. Not only will your hair feel cleaner, it will become less dry. It's a win-win!
Maintaining curly hair can be a challenge at times, but with the right hair products, you can have luscious locks that don’t look like a chaotic mess. With curls, you need a shampoo that locks in and adds extra moisture. The additional moisture helps to prevent frizz and keeps your locks nice and curly, rather than limp and straight.
Curly Hair Tip: While oftentimes people with curly hair automatically assume their hair is oily, it's actually the opposite! Curly hair is the driest of all hair types, so look for shampoos that promote moisture, hydration, and smoothing. We promise your curls will thank you for it!
