If you’ve ever noticed your hair misbehaving right after a shower, you’re not alone. Apparently, one of the secrets to maintaining your hair’s health and style is to cut back on shampooing. Consider washing your hair only twice a week to prevent it from drying out and becoming unruly

And remember, the choice of shampoo matters. Pick a moisturizing option with gentle ingredients to keep your locks looking their best.

The art of co-washing

Co-washing, short for conditioner-only washing, is another game-changer for gentlemen seeking healthier and more manageable hair. Instead of shampoo, this method involves using conditioner to cleanse your locks, offering an effective way to combat dryness and minimize breakage. Many followers of the No-Poo approach rely on co-washing, using chemical-free conditioners to refresh and hydrate their curls without over-cleansing, maintaining hair that looks and feels its best.

Drying done right

Men with curly hair know that air-drying isn’t always the best option as the density and volume of curls can prolong drying time. Lingering moisture at the roots can lead to brittle strands and breakage. To combat this, it’s essential to have a trusty blow dryer or a fast-drying device in your grooming arsenal. When selecting one, prioritize models with a cold air setting as heat can strip curly hair of moisture and leave it damaged.
