Follow our hair care tips for men to ensure your hair maintains elasticity, strength and shine!
Nothing feels better than a piping hot shower, but it’s wreaking havoc on your hair and scalp. Hot water strips the essential oils from the hair and scalp and leads to dryness. So next time, turn down the heat!
TOWEL DRY CORRECTLY
We are quick to jump out of the shower and towel dry our hair before styling and heading out the door. Towel drying the hair can stretch hair to its breaking point and cause damage to the cuticle.
Instead of towel drying, we prefer to pat dry! Just like they do when you are in the salon chair!
Shake off any excess water in the hair post shower followed by gently stroking your hair with a towel in the direction it grows as opposed to vigorously rubbing it.
STAY AWAY FROM HEATED TOOLS
For some men, hair dryers and flat irons may form part of their hair routine. Ensure that you apply a heat-protectant on the hair before styling. We love Redken Argan-6 oil, a natural argan oil for dry and brittle hair that provides softness, deep conditioning and shine. If you can step away from the heated tools, we suggest taking a break and leaving your hair to breathe and dry naturally!
USE A QUALITY SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
The price tag may be a little higher, but it pays to use a quality shampoo and conditioner. A good shampoo and conditioner will gently cleanse your hair, while adding moisture, elasticity and strength.
The Redken All Soft range dramatically transforms the texture of dry, brittle hair. Enriched with Argan oil, this range of products helps to restore hair’s protein for renewed elasticity and intense softness.
On the topic of dry hair, avoid hair products with alcohol as an ingredient as this causes the hair to dry out further.
SHAMPOO LESS FREQUENTLY
We recommended you reduce the frequency of which you wash your hair. This will help your hair maintain its natural oils, which means a softer and shinier mane.
DEEP CONDITIONING TREATMENTS
Revive your hair with deep conditioning treatments. Treatments add moisture back to the hair which has been lost between shampooing, straightening, heated tools and cold weather.
Deep conditioning the hair 2-4 times a month or once a week (for severely damaged hair) will leave hair stronger, shinier and healthier.
Live True London hair salons offer a range of Redken and Pureology treatments suitable to various hair types and conditions.
To maintain healthy hair, it is essential you keep up with your salon visits for regular cuts. Visiting a stylist every 4 weeks will ensure removal of dead hair and split ends, and ensure healthy hair growth and condition.
