This article is all about men’s hair!
So with that in mind, I would like to offer some “hair care tips” for men and if you follow them, you will look “Absolutely Fantastic”!
A lot of these tips pertain to women’s hair also, so to all you women out there, “check them out”.
Towel drying is one of the biggest causes of damage to men’s hair.
When hair is wet, it is highly susceptible to damage.
When the hair is rubbed with a towel, some of the hairs become tangled in the threads of the towel and become stretched to the breaking point, causing damage to the cuticle (the shingle-like outer layer of the hair), frizziness, and split ends.
To properly towel dry, shake out the excess water and stroke your hair in the direction it grows, rather than rubbing the hair with the towel.
Drying takes a bit longer this way but after a few haircuts, (to get rid of the damaged hair you now have), you’ll notice the difference in the way your hair looks.
Blow drying is also a common cause of damage to the hair.
Excessive blow drying can dry out the hair and scalp. If you must use a blow dryer, apply a thermal styling spray or detangler to coat the hair and protect it from damage, use a wide-tooth comb to prevent pulling, and always leave the hair slightly damp. This will prevent over drying the hair.
Nothing feels better than a piping hot shower, but it’s wreaking havoc on your hair and scalp. Very hot water strips too much of the essential oil from the hair and scalp and leads to dryness.
A good shampoo and conditioner will help cleanse the hair, add moisture and elasticity, and smooth the cuticle to add shine.

Use the Right Tools
Don’t use a brush on wet hair, when the hair is most vulnerable.
When combing through wet hair, use a wide-toothed comb and gently work out any tangles.
The condition of your hair is often a reflection of the overall health of your body.
Eat well, exercise, drink plenty of water, get enough sleep, and reduce stress in your life.
Doing so will result in a healthier scalp and great looking hair.
Avoid Tight Hats
A tight hat (or ponytail) can cause “traction alopecia,” a condition in which hair is pulled out of the scalp. If worn long enough, the damage can become permanent. A tight hat or ponytail can also cause damage to the cuticle and breakage.
Keep it Trimmed
Since the only real way to remove damaged hair is to cut off the damaged section, keeping your hair trimmed regularly will help eliminate split ends. “Even if you’re growing your hair out”, make sure to get it trimmed about every five weeks.
Low moisture and protein in the hair can cause frizz. To minimize this problem, use a good moisturizing conditioner.
A slick, smoothing serum can be applied to add shine and give the hair a smoother appearance.
OOooops, I’m almost out of room, so I hope you stay healthy and prosperous, but mostly healthy, and I’ll see you next month, and remember,
