Your first hair care weapon is shampoo – but not just whatever’s on sale at the supermarket. Cheap supermarket shampoo removes all the good moisture along with the dirt. Choose a good shampoo to suit your hair – greasy, dry, curly, straight, or somewhere in between.
The next step is conditioner, which many men forget. Conditioning doesn’t just make your hair soft and smooth, it also helps keep your scalp clean, which keeps dandruff at bay.
Depending on your haircut, you may also need styling products. Most gels clog up your hair follicles and cause dandruff. So go for a pliable product like a wax or pomade. These have the added bonus of not looking stiff and crusty.
How much to use depends on your hairstyle. You may need just a touch to smooth stray hairs, or little more to keep your look in place for the day. It’s up to you.
