Many men tend to neglect their hair. Yet it is an important detail that women pay particular attention to. Hair can be a symbol of strength, power, virility and seduction. Today, who doesn't dream of being with a man who takes care of his body and hair?
The causes of unhealthy hair
Excess shampoo and care products with chemical components is one of the causes of damage to your hair. Choosing a healthy and adapted product is therefore essential to keep your scalp healthy. Do you have oily, dry, broken or damaged hair? Their condition depends on the care you give them, but also on your diet, your emotional state, possible colouring and environmental factors.
Some seasons are also more difficult for your hair than others. In winter, our hair is put to the test. Between wearing a cap, rain, wind, the heat of the hair dryer and the lack of vitamin D from the sun, your hair is quickly attacked.
To bring it back to life, a multitude of small, simple actions are possible and quick to put in place. Whatever your hair type (long, short, curly, sheared, lost...) a few steps are essential to take care of it.
Use an organic shampoo that is adapted to your hair.
In order to use the right shampoo for you, you must already know the nature and condition of your hair. Does it tend to be greasy, dry or damaged? Is it thick, thin? Do you have a sensitive scalp?
Today, you have a wide range of choices. However, don't use just anything! We strongly advise you to use organic and natural products. Organic solid shampoo, in all its forms, is an excellent treatment that should become a must in your bathroom.
So, which shampoo to use for which type of hair?
Depending on the condition of your hair.
- If you don't have any particular problem, your hair is said to be "normal". In this case, you can use a organic shampoo to preserve its balance.
- If you have dull hair, difficult to untangle, and so called "sensitive" hair, you should use a nourishing and moisturizing shampoo with honey to deeply nourish them.
- If you have brittle, damaged or dry hair, opt for shampoos moisturizing and nourishingbased on vegetable oil (coconut, baobab, clay, ylang ylang, avocado, shea butter...).
- If you have greasy hair, you will need a purifying organic shampoo based on tulsi powder and coconut vegetable oil, known for their contribution to a perfect balance, and soothes your scalp.
- If your hair is mixed, i.e. oily at the roots and dry at the ends, shampoos for oily hair at the roots are within your reach. You can also use a conditioner to moisturize the dry ends of your hair.
Depending on the nature of your hair.
- If you have curly or frizzy hair, depending on your needs, you can opt for a shampoo that moisturizes and keeps your volume, to form beautiful curls, or a straightening shampoo if you want to have smoother hair every day.
- If you have dandruff, opt for an natural anti-dandruff shampoo that will give you all the protection your hair needs to fight this phenomenon.
- If you have coloured or streaked your hair, you will need to use a specific shampoo to maintain the colour and prevent it from changing.
For sensitive scalps, and especially those with fine hair, we recommend a soft, moisturizing shampoo. Above all, do not rub too much, this activates the sebaceous glands, which will produce excess sebum, which is the origin of oily hair.
Finally, if you have normal hair and you use an all-in-one shower gelIf you have any questions, please use a quality product, free of chemicals. The skin of our body and our scalp do not necessarily have the same needs, this is why it is important to choose a product with the best ingredients, which will be adapted to your body and your hair.
For a better result, it is better to buy a complete range of products rather than different brands of care: shampoo, conditioner, mask, and care to be applied on dry or wet hair, all these products will optimize the quality of your hair.
Wash your hair with lukewarm water.
Dust, pollution, smell, perspiration, sun, sebum, mites... Your hair absorbs everything. But by the way, how often do you have to wash it? Again, it all depends on the nature of your hair. Some will be greasy faster than others. In general, a suitable shampoo every two to three days is ideal.
Most men rough up their hair because they don't know the right things to do to take care of it. It is important to use warm water and not too hot (yes, even if it is pleasant). Indeed, cold water is the most suitable. That's why we advise you to use warm water, which is a good balance between using cold water and spending a rather unpleasant moment in the shower, or using water that is too hot and damaging your scalp!
For the sake of your hair, you absolutely must lower the water temperature. Warm water does not wash hair properly and deprives it of its natural grease, which ultimately damages it. It scrapes and unbalances the scalps, which tend to be greasy.
Nothing better than fresh water (or at least lukewarm water for those who are cold) to boost the quality of your hair.
Massage your scalp
To cleanse your hair, apply the shampoo to your hair and then with water, rub gently to leave a silky lather. Take the time to massage your scalp, always delicately, to avoid unbalancing your hydrolipidic film. Massage not only relaxes you in the shower but also activates the micro-circulation of your scalp.
Rinse your hair well
Rinse your hair, as freshly as possible and until there is no more shampoo. The rinsing stage is just as important as the washing stage, because if there is any shampoo left, it can leave a greasy feeling when drying. You will then feel as if your hair is dirty, even though you have just washed it.
When rinsing your hair, remember to lift your head to rinse the roots thoroughly. You should spend at least 2 minutes rinsing your hair until the water running out is clear and free of lather.
The result? Your hair is clean, shiny and supple again.
Opt for a hair scrub or mask
The scrub or mask is not only reserved for the body and face, it is also very useful for your scalp, and helps to fight against your hair problems.
The exfoliation : It is an exfoliation of the scalp with the help of grains, which allow to cleanse the scalp. It stimulates and frees the scalp of all accumulated impurities. The exfoliation can be done only once a month.
Hair exfoliation is highly recommended for men with oily or dandruffy hair. It will deeply purify your scalp by removing dead skin patches to eliminate them and prevent them from falling out during the day.
On the other hand, for people with sensitive scalp, it is strongly recommended to use a soft and moisturizing product, special for sensitive scalp, and especially organic and without chemicals. If you have a sore or have a colouring, it is not recommended.
The hair mask : nourishing and moisturizing, it cleanses and repairs your hair. It can respond to a particular problem, such as an oily scalp or dryness caused by the abuse of chemical shampoos.
There are all kinds of hair masks available depending on your needs. The hair mask will regenerate and deeply nourish the hair fiber. It is the ideal care for your tips that tend to be dehydrated.
For men with oily hair, we recommend clay masks that will purify and treat excess sebum. Urban and sporty men, confronted with pollution, you will love this regenerating treatment. However, you should only apply it at the roots to avoid drying out the ends. You can use this treatment once a week, depending on the condition of your hair.
Dry your hair well
Indeed, it is not enough just to hold your hairdryer around your skull! For dry, well-groomed hair, you should first think about drying it as much as possible with a towel. The use of a hair dryer on hair dripping with water should be banned. The more it is wrung out, the more it will be protected from the heat of the blow dryer.
Pre-dry your hair upside down, this will allow your roots to be lifted and thus give volume to your hair.
To blow-dry your hair, you need to use a strong airflow at the beginning and decrease as your hair gets dry. Always dry your hair in the direction of the hair fibre (from roots to ends).
To strengthen your hair and repair your hair fibre, we recommend that you use a paraben and silicone free serum. This product of natural origin protects you against external aggressions. It can be used on wet or damp hair, before drying, but also on dry hair.
Style your hair with the right product
Wax, gel, styling ointment, spray... how can you tell the difference between all these products?
Everyone has their own hair, and that's why it's so hard to choose the right product for you. Other people's hair is not yours! A product that works for one, won't necessarily work for you.
If the beard balm has only been around for a short time, while styling wax has been on the market for some time. This product helps you to discipline your strands, adds texture to the hair fibre and allows your hair to shine and hold from morning to night. Unlike gel, wax does not freeze your hair, does not harden and is not sticky. It is especially suitable for short hair, and is not very recommended for fine hair without volume. You can apply it to damp hair, and at the root of the scalp.
2. The gel
The gel is ideal for flattening and fixing your strands over several hours. It enhances your haircut and creates a stylish result. Prefer a gel with plant ingredients, such as aloe vera, which is known for its moisturizing properties.
3. The ointment
The aim of this product is to make your hair shine while releasing a natural effect. The higher the quality of your ointment and the more natural the ingredients used, the more shine you will get. If you want a more relaxed look, the matte ointment will do the trick! Ideal for straight and medium-length hair, choose a natural water-based ointment that gives a soft, light texture and is easier to remove.
4. The spray
Are you a man in a hurry? Our organic hair spray will suit you perfectly: intended for quick use, the spray is a finishing product used after combing your hair and does not require the use of hands. It gives volume and a light hold in a few spritzes, as if you had just come back from the beach. This spray is to be applied on dry or wet hair, and on any type of hair.
And don't forget to go to the hairdresser to refresh your cut. Simply taking care of your hair can help you feel confident and serene. As a trendy man, you will have a well-groomed image and will have more motivation in your everyday life.
React at the first signs of hair loss
More than a hair problem, hair loss is a real scourge! Regardless of age, no one is safe from hair loss. In men, hair loss is often genetic in origin. Lifestyle also plays an important role in hair preservation. Manhood and pride can take a hit, but fortunately there are solutions to slow down or fight this hair problem.
To stop the evolution, it is important to consult at the first signs of hair loss. Baldness, or alopecia, is often caused by an excess of male hormones and is hereditary. On the other hand, it can also be caused by intense stress, a lack of food or medication.
Certain treatments can slow down the evolution and improve the quality of your scalp. Among them are:
linseed oil has proven to be very effective: to take in food complementit densifies your hair and encourages hair growth.
Products containing provitamin B5 allow a direct action on the hair follicles of the scalp. Fortifying, they also contribute to hair growth.
- Donkey's milk, known for a very long time for its many virtues for the skin and hair, encourages the cells of the hair follicle to oxygenate and thus promotes hair regrowth. It balances the secretion of sebum and regenerates the skin.
For your well-being, we recommend that you use our hair loss kit which includes products from nature, organic and made in France. Indeed, for optimal effectiveness, you need a combination of many natural active ingredients acting on the growth of your hair.
The importance of choosing care without chemicals
We tend to minimize the risks to our health and environment from chemical care. However, the difference between a conventional chemical shampoo and a chemical-free organic shampoo is huge!
Chemical hair care scrapes off your scalp, due to the aggressive sulphates found in it. These sulphates amplify your problem. If you have oily hair, your skull will try to produce more sebum to protect itself from the chemicals. The more you wash, the more oily hair you have, and the more oily hair you have, the more you want to wash it. It's a hell of a circle, isn't it? The same goes for dry hair, which will dry out more with repeated use of toxic products.
Do you feel like your hair is shiny and less damaged with the non-organic shampoo? It's normal, it's the effect of the silicone which is actually a "misery concealer".
Choosing a care product with ingredients of natural origin will alleviate many of your hair problems. The organic shampoo, without chemicals, will allow you to wash your hair gently, without damaging your scalp. And the most important thing in all this is that it will preserve your natural balance.
To start again on good bases and to have healthy and quality hair, nothing better than to use organic care, or with ingredients of natural origin. These treatments will allow you to restore your hair to its natural state, while gently moisturizing it. If you are accustomed to chemical products, it will however take a little time to adapt to them. Your scalp needs to eliminate toxins from chemical treatments and to re-harmonize.
In addition to doing something for your health, you will also be doing something for the environment. Ingredients from petrochemicals are very polluting to manufacture and have a very poor biodegradability. They are products that poison our soils, as well as aquatic life.
