Best Hair Care Tips For Black Men
We have some tips for keeping your hair in the best condition possible. We are here to help you when you need it. These tips can help you to make your morning routine so much easier.
Shampoo Your Hair Less Frequently!
You may not think that this is a big deal but it really is. You don’t want to shampoo your hair every day even if you are just trying to get the gunk out of it. You don’t want greasy hair but you also don’t want to strip the natural nutrients from your hair that make it more manageable.
Shampoo strips away the natural oils so if you are doing it every day, it’s kind of overkill. It’s going to leave your hair dry and brittle which can make it fell like a Brillo-pad.
If you can manage it, try to shampoo just a couple of times a week or at least every other day.
6. Cool Styles
A cool style like this is sure to impress people wherever you go.
Moisturize Every Day!
Your hair can dry out pretty easily during the day. It could be the seasons changing but you have to get on top of it. If you keep your scalp hydrated, you will grow hair that is not only easy to style but soft as well.
Even if you aren’t shampooing every day, you want to moisturize every day. It’s so important. You can use a wash out conditioner that is going to replenish your scalp and your hair. There is also some good hydrating crème that will give you the moisturizing that you need. You can also use oils or oil blends that you apply right to the scalp. For best results, just make sure you are distributing it evenly throughout the scalp.
7. Curly Styles
A bold look like this is truly one of a kind. It’s a style that you can wear anywhere whether it’s to an event or a casual day.
Go For A Low-Maintenance Style
This might not work if you want to follow in the footsteps of Nick Young, but his styles aren’t too high-maintenance either. Find a style that you really like and go with it. Try not to change it up too often because you want it to stay healthy.
By letting your hair grow out, you can take advantage of Nick Young’s mohawk or sponge twist styles. Curly hair is totally in and you should embrace the look that you have. Find a style that makes you look professional for work but one that doesn’t make you late for work.
8. Longer Curls
This style is sleek because of the side shave. The curls on top are much longer in this style and it makes for a pretty cool style that you can rock wherever you want.
Use The Right Products!
Using the right products can make all the difference in the world when you are trying to manage your style. If you use cheap products, you are going to get bad results. You may think that the drug store products are just as good as the professional ones, but you would be wrong. Most of the stuff in the drug store is either a) not formulated for black hair or b) is full of grease which will leave your hair looking flat. Regardless, you aren’t doing wonders for your hair.
If you can find an ethnic section in the drug store, that’s the best place for you or go to a professional beauty supply store. Sections like that are more curly hair friendly and that’s exactly what you want. Try to avoid any products that have mineral oil, alcohol or petrolatum in it. These products will certainly hold your hair in place but they will also dry your hair right out. You won’t get the shine that you want and that’s the most disappointing part.
Any product that is natural is a good one. There are lots of pomades that have grapefruit seed oil that will put a lot of moisture into your hair. Plus, you will get the hold that you need as well. The best part, is these products don’t leave the greasy residue behind.
9. Bold Curly Tops
This curly mohawk is a popular style. His curls have some blonde elements to it as well. The sides are shaved and the hair is long on top and down the back. The mohawk alone is a very popular style right now.
Whether you are looking to try color in your hair or not, you can’t go wrong with this look. It’s fun, it’s fashionable and it’s truly one of a kind. We love the blonde highlights in the hair but we know that he doesn’t always have them. They are cool to try in the summer when the hair typically lightens, to begin with.
10. Clean Cuts
This is a fresh style that is clean on the sides as well as around the forehead. The top here is quite tall and the curls are tight. If you are looking for a cool, new style, then this is the one for you.
11. Bold Mohawk
This mohawk is large and in charge. The mohawk here is super tall and it’s in an afro fashion. The whole point of the style is that it is meant to draw attention and be a show-stopper. The sides are quite short here which brings more emphasis to the Mohawk itself. The style is bold and one that you should try out.
These are all amazing styles and there is a reason why he is considered to be so stylish and fashionable all the time. Guys love these styles because they aren’t high maintenance styles and you can wear them in a professional atmosphere or a casual one. We hope that you have found inspiration in these hairstyles and can take some of the pictures to your barber for a fresh new look this year.
