Having a good hair care routine is vital in ensuring that your hair remains healthy. This might sound like an engaging and tiresome task for men. Doesn’t it? Well, taking care of your hair requires a routine that is simple an effective. With the right tools and knowledge on how to go about it, hair care routine is not as hard.

An effective hair care routine can be summarized into four facets; washing your hair at least 3 times a week, styling your hair, taking care of thinning hair and using the best hair clippers for men. Easy. Right?

Washing your hair three times in a week is equally vital as opposed to washing it daily. Why? One would ask. Well, washing your hair more often, strips the naturally produced protective oils off your hair leaving it ‘naked’ and more prone to getting frayed. Use cool water as opposed to hot water to wash your hair. Hot water tends to dry up your hair leaving you with dull hair when it dries.

Water causes the keratin in your hair to stretch. This explains why hair is weaker when wet. Care should therefore be taken when drying up your hair after washing it. It is recommended to dab your hair dry to get rid of the excess water rather than subjecting the wet hair to rough towel dry treatment that might end up breaking your hair.

Always comb your hair after applying a hair product. Combing helps in distributing the hair product throughout your hair and thus bringing about the desired outcome. It is always recommended to comb the hair towards the direction it grows.

Using a blow drier can be an efficient way to dry your hair quickly but trust me you don’t need the hair drier every other day. Blow drying consecutively will eventually lead to hair damage and thus you should let the
hair air dry most of the times.

Caring for thinning hair is one of the most important ways of maintaining healthy hair. This can be achieved by massaging your scalp when washing your hair and most importantly having a balanced diet. Massaging the scalp stimulates blood circulation which in turn promotes hair growth. Gently rub your scalp with your fingers in a circular motion around the areas that the hair is thinning. Eat foods that have nutrients that promote strong hair growth. Such foods include proteins, B vitamins and Omega 3 fatty acids.

Choosing the best hair clippers can be an overwhelming task. Regardless, having hair clippers is very convenient. Settling on the best hair clippers is dependent on a lot of factors; how frequent you use the clippers, your hair type and size as well as your budget.

There are three basic hair clipper types; the rotary hair clippers, the magnetic hair clippers and the pivot hair clippers. The choice of hair clipper to use will be informed by various factors that include your hair type, clipper speeds, maintenance cost involved as well as personal preferences.

The rotary hair clipper is a good deal as it works well with both soft and coarse hair styles. The magnetic hair clipper works best with soft hair types and the pivot hair clipper works best with coarse hair types.

The pivot hair clipper has its blades moving in both directions making it faster than the other two hair clippers.…
