Gentlemen, stop thinking that your hair product is causing hair loss. Your hair product is not causing your hair to fall out. I receive many emails from guys that are flipping out, thinking that their hair product is making their hair fall out. They do their hair, and they look it through “Oh my god, there’s hair, it must be falling out.” That’s not making your hair fall out. But that being said, there are six things that I see men doing that are screwing up there would be and could be luscious locks.
Number one – take it easy with the amount of heat that you are using on your hair, alright. Indirect heat like a hair dryer – no big deal. But if you are going in there with a flat iron to straighten it, or you are getting up on it with super high heat every single day, you will harm your hair.
Don’t Touch Your Hair
Mistake number two – touching your hair with your hands too often. Seriously, stop pulling, playing, touching your hair again and again. During the day you go, you check your hairstyle; you are like “Oh, I’m not as sexy as I should be or it could be.” Settle it a little, but get your fingers out of there. If your hair is always falling or moving, you are not using the right hair product, go with something with a higher hold or cut your hair shorter. The longer it gets, the harder it is actually to stand on.
Wash Your Hair
Number three – stop going too long in between shampooing. When you shampoo, you are cleaning a lot of the oil, the buildup, the gunk that builds up on not only your hair but your scalp as well. If you do not remove this on a regular basis, your follicles can become clogged. Because here’s the deal, your hair grows in different stages. One stage it goes a little bit dormant, and it is like “Yo, I’m going to chill for a little bit.” It is not a big deal. It starts again but if that follicle clogs, it can’t.
Choose Hair Product With Less Alcohol
Number four – if you want sexy hair, don’t use products that have a lot of alcohol in it. High alcohol means dry hair.
Don’t Use Cheap Hair Products
Mistake number five is buying inexpensive hair products, and when I say cheap, I mean poor quality. A lot of the mass-marketed hair product companies that you are going to see on the shelves of supermarkets have bad quality and ingredients. Will they make your hair fall out? No. Will they harm your hair and not have it be as healthy as possible? Yes. You should choose products that are as healthy for your hair as possible. Producers have specially infused them with essential oils and a lot of other botanicals that are not only good for your hair; they help heal your hair.
Time To Breathe
And last but certainly not least mistake is when your hair can’t breathe enough. And what I mean by this is not having hair product in it or on it all the time. A lot of guys do this thing, they style their hair with a product in the morning, and through all day they won’t shower before they go to bed. Some men don’t have a shower before sleep; then they get up, maybe they shower and scrub their head, but then they apply the product right away. It is my opinion, not necessarily anything I can back up by any scientific research, but you have to give your hair rest from the hair products.
Personally, I like to get a shower at night and wash my hair. I wash my hair every single day. One of the concerns that many guys have is that they aren’t washing their hair frequently enough and so you lose about a hundred to one hundred and twenty-five hairs naturally during the day. But if you are not cleaning your hair every day or two days, you go, and you put a product that’s sticky and gunky, you look at your hands stuck there, and freaking people out, gentlemen, the deal is this.
Hair products will not, hear me one more time, will not make your hair fall out. If you are balding, your hair will fall out. If you do not shampoo your hair, wash your head enough, you will have extra hair, but the product itself doesn’t make it drop out. No. And if you stop doing these six things, your hair will be flowing with luscious amazingness and who doesn’t want that.
