Men listen up! Hair care 101 — answered!

How’s that crown on your head looking? Yes, we mean your hair. The importance of your hair in enhancing your overall look goes unquestioned. And while most of us know that hair needs good care, a lot of us are clueless on how to go about it.

So today, we answer some of the most frequently asked questions on effective hair care. Read to know.

Q.1. How often should I wash my hair?

A. For most people, it is recommended to shampoo twice a week. However, if you’re someone with oily scalp issues, you can wash your hair on alternate days. You wouldn’t want a dandruff build-up, would you!

Q.2. My shampoo seems to be drying out my hair. What to do?

A. This may often occur due to the ingredients in your shampoo. Go for a mild one that does not contain sulphates and parabens. Sulphate-free shampoos cleanse your hair gently yet effectively without drying it out.

Q.3. Do men need a conditioner?

A. Yes, of course! Against popular notion, men need a conditioner after shampooing their hair to keep it nourished, soft and healthy.

Q.4. How do I combat excessive hair fall?

A. First and foremost, you need to be gentle with that mane. After you step out of the shower, don’t aggressively rub your towel against your hair. Also, ditch the blow dryer and let your hair air dry instead.  

Second, skip experimenting with too many styling products. If you must use hair wax or gel, make sure you do not let it build up and wash the residue away at frequent intervals.

Q.5. What is the correct way to comb my hair?

A. Avoid combing your hair when it is wet. Once dry, start combing your hair from the scalp and move slowly toward the tips or ends. Use a wide-toothed wooden comb instead of a plastic one. Plastic combs often have sharp edges that can hurt your scalp and pull out your hair, leading to excess hair fall.

Q.6. Is rainwater damaging for my hair?

A. Yes, rainwater contains a lot of pollutants that can make your hair dull and brittle. If you do happen to get caught in the rain, wash your hair as soon as you’re back home with a mild shampoo and condition it thoroughly.

Monsoon is setting in, and even though a lot of us are at home, it is important to care for your hair the right way. That mane must not go in vain!
