Hair Care Tips For Men From Simone Thomas Top Westbourne Hair Salon

Hair Care Tips For Men Nioxin Westbourne Hair salon

Take Care Of Your Scalp

A clean scalp is a healthy scalp, and a healthy scalp promotes better hair!   Consider using an exfoliating scalp scrub to boost circulation and remove build up of dead skin cells and hair care products. 

Avoid Hot Showers 

We all know that a piping hot shower can feel great, but the hot water can strip the natural oils out of your hair leaving dry and frizzy.   Cold showers can cause the capillaries in your scalp to constrict, reducing the flow of nutrients to your hair.   The best solution is a happy medium – a lukewarm shower.

Choose The Right Hair Care Products

Washing your hair regularly with cheap shampoo from a supermarket with its harsh cleansers can irritate the scalp and strip it of natural oils.  Invest in high quality products which are free from sulphates and parabens and your hair, skin and the planet will thank you for it.   At our Westbourne hair salon we’re proud to stock a full range of Davines hair care products, also available to purchase online here.

Ask your stylist for advice on the right hair care and styling products.   Take care when using styling products though.  They may be essential to your look, but use too much and it can make your hair look heavy and dull.

Hair Care For Men NioxinDon’t Shampoo Your Hair Every Day & Don’t Skip The Conditioner

Many men shampoo their hair every time they take a shower, but this simply isn’t necessary.  Even using shampoos which are free of sulphates, daily shampooing will strip our hair of natural oils.  We recommend you only shampoo tow to three times a week.  

If you want to keep your hair looking at its best, moisture is essential.  Using a conditioner after shampooing will help replenish lost oils and keep your hair looking healthy.  If your hair is thinning, we still recommend using a conditioner, but suggest you try a light weight one such as Davines DEDE conditioner.

Be Gentle With Your Hair When It’s Wet

We know it’s tempting when you’re rushing out of the shower to aggressively scrub at your hair with a towel to get it dry, but we’d recommend taking a gentler approach!   Wet hair is at its most fragile and it is vulnerable to damage, so start by shaking out any excess moisture then patting it dry.  Gently comb your hair in the direction it grows using a wide toothed comb.  

Book Regular Trims at Simone Thomas Westbourne Hair Salon

We recommend you get into a routine of having your hair cut every four to six weeks.  This will get rid of any split ends or damaged hair to keep it looking healthy as well as keeping your style in shape.

Some Of Our Favourite Hair Styles For Men

At our Westbourne hairdressing salon our professional stylists offer barbering, styling and hair colouring services for gents in relaxed and friendly surroundings.   Whether its a quick tidy up, a smart, classic hair cut or trend-led modern style, we can a bespoke men’s hairstyle that will really works for our individual clients.

One of the most popular hairstyle for gents right now is the clipper cut where we use clippers and/or scissors to give you a short, neat hairstyle.   We can clipper the hair incredible short all over for a buzz cut, use clippers and scissors for a classic short back and sides, or create a fade or skin fade where the hair is clippered at the sides and back, growing longer on top.  Longer and looser hairstyles for men are increasingly popular.
