Having a hair care routine is important to having healthy and manageable hair. You want to look your best, especially when working in a professional office. We’d like to share some expert hair care tips for all the fella’s out there.

Most men wash their hair too much. It’s a common misconception that you need to shampoo your hair everyday. It actually dries out your hair and scalp by washing away your natural oils. Most men only need to wash their hair two to three times a week. So, go ahead skip the shampoo every other day. Instead, scrub your scalp with water to remove dirt, sweat and product build up, then follow with a conditioner.

If you’re finding your hair to be dry or frizzy, use a leave-in conditioner after showering. Coming in for a deep conditioner treatment regularly will help keep your hair soft and silky. You may find that your hair is drier during the winter months due to dry indoor air. For extra frizz control, you can use a smoothing serum. This will reduce frizz and add shine.

Another common mistake is made when drying your hair. If you dry your hair by rubbing it, you’re actually damaging your hair. You’ll want to avoid rubbing your hair, especially if your hair is thinning. Instead, pat your hair dry.

Wearing tight hats or ponytails can cause hair to be pulled from your scalp. This is called traction alopecia, and if it’s a regular occurrence it can cause permanent damage. Wearing a tight hat or ponytail can also damage the cuticle and cause breakage.

Don’t forget to schedule regular haircuts. You should be trimming your hair every six weeks, even if your growing it out. Your stylist will trim away broken, or split ends, leaving you with healthy locks.
