Meet your grooming goals with our top hair care for men tips

Men's hair care tips are all about common sense. If you think about the products you use and plan your routine ahead of time, you will find it easy to improve the health and strength of your hair without making big changes.

To write this article, we spoke to our styling experts and asked them to provide us with their best hair grooming tips for men. So, with that in mind, here are 5 easy ways to improve the health and strength of your hair this year, as well as some insight into improving your daily and weekly haircare routine.

1. Consider the men's hair care products you use

The quality of the products that you use on your hair will have a big impact on its health and strength. Rather than just grabbing the first shampoo or styling wax off the shelf that you come across, spend a few minutes looking at the ingredients.

Though you will have to spend a little more money to avoid harmful ingredients in men's hair care products, here are some ingredients you should look to avoid:

❌ Sulfates

❌ Parabens

❌ Polyethylene Glycols (PEG)

❌ Phthalates

❌ Formaldehyde

❌ Triclosan

❌ Dimethicone

❌ Retinyl Palmitate

❌ Alcohol

❌ Fragrances

2. Dry your hair properly

The way that you dry your hair has a big impact on its maintenance. First, you need to make sure you have the best ionic hair dryer available to you. The Laifen Swift Special is the best product on the market, but if you're looking for a budget-friendly option, the Laifen SE is worth considering. With your Laifen dryer, follow these simple steps to dry your hair properly:

✅ Don't always use the hottest setting - dry your hair on the low and medium heat settings to prevent overheating.

✅ If you have thin or particularly sensitive hair, consider using a heat protectant to create a barrier between your hair and the dryer for added protection.

✅ When towel drying your hair, don't use a coarse towel. Opt for a microfiber towel to prevent your hair from breaking and falling out.

3. Keep your hair hydrated

Moisture is key to hydrated hair, no matter your hair type. First, look for a nourishing and moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to wash your hair without removing the important natural oils within your hair.

Then, use a leave-in conditioner with avocado oil or argan oil to lock in the moisture after washing and drying your hair. This will keep your hair follicles nourished and healthy and prevent them from drying out.

4. Protect your hair from the sun

The sun's UV rays can be damaging to all types of hair, so you need to take steps to prevent the sun from directly impacting your hair. The obvious way to do this is to wear a hat when you're outside for any length of time.

Simply wear a baseball cap or any other hat for that matter, and you will protect your hair from the sun. This is such an overlooked men's hair care tip, but it's one of the easiest to follow and will offer significant protection to your hair.

5. Don't overwash your hair

Every time you take a shower, it can be tempting to turn to the shampoo and conditioner to wash your hair. But this is a mistake. Overwashing your hair can remove some of the natural oils from your follicles, causing your hair to dry out.

So, rather than washing your hair every day, aim to wash it with shampoo and conditioner no more than three times each week. If it helps, specify which days you will wash your hair so you can work it into your routine.

What is the best hair care routine for men?

Now that we've run through some top men's hair care tips, here are some things to think about when putting together your daily/weekly hair care routine:

☑️ Decide which days to wash your hair. We recommend washing your hair no more than three times per week to keep it fresh and hydrated.

☑️ Always check the labels of each haircare product that you buy and avoid the harmful ingredients listed above. You should opt for natural products wherever possible.

☑️ Use a leave-in conditioner to lock in the moisture and to keep your hair hydrated throughout the week.

☑️ Use an ionic hair dryer from Laifen with adjustable heat settings to avoid heat damage when drying your hair. You should also avoid using a coarse towel when towel-drying your hair.

☑️ Visit your barber or stylist once a month for a trim or full cut. Don't be afraid to mix things up if you want to try trending hairstyles for men.

So, there you have it - our top men's hair care tips with some expert insight into how to put together a winning haircare routine. Be sure to also check out our FAQs below for more information on keeping your hair strong and healthy.
