WHICH TYPE OF HAIR DO YOU HAVE?
Quick Takes On Each Of Our Men's Hair Care Products
Our Shampoos and Conditioners
CLEAN Deep Cleansing Shampoo is our signature deep cleansing shampoo that contains loads of invigorating peppermint and tea tree oil, delivering big-time lather and cleanliness. Tea tree oil is the key ingredient to remove oil build up and dead skin: and is a natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agent that works to prevent dandruff.
VOLUME Volumizing and Thickening Biotin Shampoo is full of biotin and rice protein that help add weightless volume for incredible hair fullness and body. Volume shampoo increases hair strenght and elasticity, while cleansing the scalp of grime and oiliness to keep hair thick and healthy.
BOLD Bourbon Shampoo delivers a rich lather and a deep clean in a, dare we say...Bold bourbon scent. The shampoo is full of incredibly healthy ingredients to keep your scalp in amazing shape. Don't worry your hair won't catch a buzz, it does not contain real bourbon.
HYDRATE Argan Oil Shampoo is our insanely moisturizing, gentle shampoo for guys whose hair tends to be a bit drier, thinner, or prone to frizz. The shampoo is loaded with argan oil to energize and soften while providing a shinier, silkier, healthy hair experience. Great creamsicle scent too.
CONTROL Dandruff Shampoo is our therapeutic cleansing moisturizing dandruff shampoo that is an effective treatment for dry hair, itchy scalp, redness, irritation, and scaling. Our medicated formula contains a whole slew of impressive stuff inside including 1.8% coal tar and 1.5% menthol, the key ingredients to help eliminate flakes.
Peppermint Cream Conditioner is our ultimate nourishing creamy conditioner that includes a touch of peppermint oil. The conditioner is packed with ingredients that restore hair pH balance and most notably bring energy and life to dry, damaged hair. The peppermint oil gives the scalp a cool, soothing, and relaxing feeling, while adding shine and manageability to your hair.
Cowboy Tobacco Cream Conditioner features a light, yet manly tobacco scent that smells absolutely incredible. The rugged conditioner is packed with healthy ingredients like sunflower seed oil, keratin, kiwi fruit extract, panthenol, and olive fruit oil that all help to restore hair balance and most notably bring energy and life to dry or damaged hair.
The Best Shampoo for Each Hair Type
Straight Hair Type - Straight hair is strong, and holds up well to styling, poor weather, and heat. A shampoo focused on a deep clean like Clean is a great way to go, as this hair type won't require much more in the way of maintenance.
Wavy Hair Type - Wavy hair has a visible curl, but you wouldn't call it curly. A great tea tree oil shampoo like Clean will work amazing, but for wavy hair, concentrate more on conditioning.
Curly Hair Type - Hair is classified as curly when you have multiple curls within an inch-long strand of hair. Shampooing and conditioning should be done fairly regularly. A shampoo loaded with Argan Oil like Hydrate is the way to go here to cut down on frizz.
Coily Hair Type - "Coily" hair is identified by tight coils that begin immediately at the scalp. Again, an argan Oil shampoo is the way to go, but with a heavier emphasis on conditioning.
Why Men Need To Use Conditioner
Even with the absolute best shampoos, natural oils in your hair and scalp will be lost in the shampooing process. That is where a great conditioner comes in to play, the benefits of which are substantial and below:
- Restores natural oils which are vital to your hair and scalp's overall health.
- Coats the hair follicles with a protective layer that smooths, thickens, and preserves all day long.
- Replenishes the moisture that shampooing strips away.
- Recovers hair from heat damage, caused by blow dryers, and other culprits.
How Often Should I Shampoo
Every other day shampooing seems to be the general sweet spot for most men. However, don't be afraid to adjust that routine as needed. If you start to notice your hair is becoming oily, you're probablly not washing enough. If your hair begins to feel dried out and brittle, you're probably washing too much. Find what works best for you, but don't forget to condition daily. If anything, shampoo less, condition more.
The Biggest Shampoo Mistake
The biggest mistake men make washing their hair is that once they put the shampoo or conditioner in their hair, they rinse it right away. NO! Be patient. Let the product sink in and do its magic. Each product needs a few minutes to soak into the hair and scalp so that it can work properly.
The Final Recap: Top Ten Shampoo & Conditioner Men's Hair Tips:
- Know how often to wash: every other day is a general sweet spot, but adjust as needed.
- Don't forget to condition! If anything, condition more, shampoo less.
- Be gentle with your scalp. Being too rough can lead to flaking and irritation.
- Know which shampoo works best for your hair type.
- Skip the 2 in 1's. Shampoo/Conditioner combos are ineffective
- Stick to the same brand. Shampoos and conditioners are designed to work in unison.
- Watch for dandruff. Eliminate flakes at the start.
- Keep the water temperature low. Extremely hot water is damaging to your hair.
- Don't be wasteful. Our product is highly concentrated, less is more.
- Don't immediately rinse out the product, give it a few minutes to marinate.
