The Ultimate Haircare Guide for Men

via


When it comes to hair care, women definitely take the cup for dedication to their hair. Men don't seem to put as much effort into caring for their hair; as long as it is clean and dry, they are good to go.


But despite this notion, men still need hair care to prevent hair loss and maintain a healthy and clean scalp. Fortunately, caring for your hair need not be demanding or time-intensive. As long as you observe a few hair care guidelines, you are good to go. 


If you are a man curious to know how to maintain your hair, read on to find out healthy haircare habits you can adapt.


Avoid Shampooing More Often


You might be wondering how often should you wash your hair. Most men shampoo their hair every single time they bathe, which is unnecessary. Shampoos are notorious for getting natural oils from your hair, leaving it weak and without the necessary nutrition.


Although showering daily is vital, rinsing your hair with water will prove more helpful than shampooing all the time. Most hair experts suggest that shampooing your hair twice or thrice a week is enough to prevent issues you can experience with hair.


Use Sulfate-Free Products


The problem with low-end hair products is that they contain sulfates, like sodium lauryl sulfate. These ingredients make the shampoo produce more foam.


Sulfates remove natural oils from your hair, leaving it brittle and dry. This makes your hair susceptible to breakage. Therefore, it would help if you opted for sulfate-free shampoos that will cleanse and strengthen your hair.


If you find it hard to get sulfate-free shampoos, ask your barber or hairstylist for suggestions. They know your hair best and will recommend the ideal products for it. 



Use Hair Conditioners


Hair conditioners are typically designed to soothe, protect and moisturize your hair. Conditioners also relax the hair cuticles, thus stimulating faster hair growth.


Conditioners work best for men with curly hair because they will tone the curls and make the hair look its best.


To condition your hair correctly, rinse it with tepid water and apply a generous amount of the product daily. Rub and spread it evenly, wait for a minute, and then rinse your hair. If it is a leave-in conditioner, there is no need to rinse the product off.

 

Use A Lukewarm shower


Most people worldwide enjoy showering with piping hot water. However, hot water will take away natural oils from your hair, making it prone to split ends and fizziness. 


You may think that cold showers are a better option, but nothing could be farther from the truth.


If you wash your hair with cold water, your scalp capillaries will constrict, tampering with the blood flow in your scalp. Your hair will have inadequate nutrients, which will stunt its growth. 


The best water temperature for your hair is mildly warm water. It does not damage your scalp and does not dry your hair. It is ideal for stimulating hair growth while getting rid of any dirt on your scalp.



Towel Off Gently


Many people dry their hair after a shower by aggressively scrubbing the towel on their heads. But aggressive toweling causes untold hair breakage, and it might be the culprit behind inexplicable hair damage. 


It is better to towel off gently because your hair is more vulnerable when wet. Use a soft towel and follow the direction that your hair grows. This will prevent hair breakage, and you'll have improved hair growth.


Conclusion


Treating your hair right is not as difficult as you might imagine. A little dedication and care is all you need to improve your hair. 


Armed with the above five guidelines, you'll not only have healthier hair, but you will also have an easier time grooming it. Ultimately, you will appreciate your looks more by doing this.

How To Feel Comfortable On A Flight

As we all start to make plans for travel as a gift to ourselves as restrictions ease, we’re thinking about flights again. Flying in economy isn’t alway ideal, especially on smaller planes where legroom is tight. However, just because you’re trapped in your seat, it doesn’t mean that you have to be uncomfortable. Try some of these simple tips to help you feel more comfortable when you fly.

Dress Strategically

Layers are the key to flying comfortably. Planes can move quickly between being too hot and too cold, so wear clothing that you can easily take off and put on. Soft, breathable items like sweatshirts and cotton tops will keep you comfortable. Blanket scarves can be used to keep you warm too. Get your hair out of your face with a hair tie bracelet. Stay away from tight-fitting clothes, or anything with scratchy tags. 


Wear The Right Shoes

Don’t wear heels or chunky shoes for a flight. You should wear shoes that are comfortable, but that you can also take on and off quickly so you can get through security withput any delays. Once you’re settled in your seat, take your shoes off. Your feet can swell during flights, so wear comfortable socks or change into slippers to allow your feet some room to breathe. 


Bring Earplugs

Block out the noise from around the cabin with some good quality earplugs. With the noise around you deadened, it will be easier to nap during the flight. 


Pack A Light Snack
A small, healthy snack will be a good energy lift when you fly. Good ideas for in-flight snacks include things like baby carrots, trail mix, fruit, or anything else that can be kept in a plastic baggy. Don’t eat greasy foods that will make you feel lethargic. Avoid upsetting your neighbors, and leave the smelly foods to eat at home. 

Check-In Early

Tick one stressful thing off your list and get checked-in early. If you check-in online before you go to the airport, you can save time in long lines, and may also be able to choose your seat. 


Choose The Right Seat

Everyone has their own preference on where they like to sit on a plane. Taller passengers will be comfortable in an aisle seat, as it’s easier to spread out. If you want to nap on the flight, choose a window seat, so you won’t be disrupted by other passengers climbing over you. All passengers will be more comfortable in a seat closer to the front of the plane. The back is often noisier due to the engine and might smell like the bathroom. 


Hydrate

Drink water, not coffee or soda. Caffeine and sugar can crash your energy, making you feel more tired and dehydrated than you did before. The air inside the cabin is dry, with humidity levels of around 10 to 20 percent, compared to the usual 30 to 65 percent. This will dry out your eyes and skin, making you feel uncomfortable. Ask the flight attendant for more water if you need it.

Why You Should Give Yourself A Gift

If you’ve ever seen something you’ve fallen in love with and not bought it for yourself, the reason could be that you just don’t feel right giving yourself something. This feeling makes sense; it’s fine to buy practical items for ourselves, but something for no reason is much harder to justify. 

However, you’ll be pleased to hear that there are many reasons why it’s actually beneficial to give yourself a gift from time to time. Read on to find out what some of these reasons are.

You’ll Learn To Give Better Gifts 

Being a good gift-giver is a wonderful attribute and something that will not only please the people receiving your well-chosen gifts but also that will make you happy every time you give one. As strange as it might sound, the more often you buy yourself something, the better you’ll get at choosing gifts for other people. 

This is because you start to understand more about what people want and what they like. You’ll know what it is you’re looking for in a gift, and you’ll understand what goes into finding the ideal present, including the extra costs like the cost of shipping a motorcycle or how important it is to start searching early if you want something unique. 

In other words, if you take the same care and attention and put the same effort and time into finding a gift for someone else that you do for yourself, you’ll become an expert gift-giver.  

 Stress Relief 

Treating yourself to something you want rather than something you need is a great way to relieve stress as long as, of course, you don’t overspend, as your subsequent money problems will only make your anxiety worse. 

 When you find something you love and then buy it for no other reason than you want to, you will find you feel amazing because your brain produces more serotonin – the happy hormone. This hormone reduces the amount of cortisol in the body (also known as the stress hormone), so it’s no wonder you’ll feel good. 

 Being happy is so important in life, and if you can make yourself happy with a special gift for no real reason, or to reward yourself for something, then do it. When you are happy, you will have a much more positive outlook on life, and that means you’ll spot more opportunities to succeed. 

 A Confidence Boost 

When you buy yourself something, you might receive a confidence boost from it. This may depend on what the gift is, but gaining more confidence is a good thing, so if it comes from buying new clothes or accessories that make you look and feel great, there’s certainly nothing wrong with that. 

In fact, you are usually going to be the best person to buy yourself clothes. You know what it is you like, you know what suits you, and you know what makes you feel great – even those who know you best won’t be able to answer those questions.
