Common hair issues men face

You’re a busy guy and you don’t need bad hair days to take up more of your time. Hair is evidence to your body condition and lifestyle. Whether it’s flaking or thinning, grey or greasy, troubled hair is an instant indictment of a man’s appearance. If you are facing any of these issues, we can help to make things right before you face a jury of your peers. Here’s what you can do to alleviate your hair problems.

1. Thinning

You’re awake, but your hair follicles have decided to sleep in. Thinning is a common problem these days. Some factors that can contribute to or lead to thinning hair or baldness are genes, untreated medical conditions, poor nutrition, vitamin deficiency, exposure to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays and living in a highly polluted area. To make things right, you will need to first identify the root cause. For example, if poor nutrition is the cause of your thinning hair, start eating a healthy and nutrition diet to improve the hair problem.

2. Snowing

If it makes you feel any better, don’t call it dandruff. Call this situation snowing or seborrhoea. It is an inflammation of the scalp which is possibly triggered by yeast and bacteria that causes redness, itching, and those tell-tale flakes of skin. To solve the problem, you should buy different types of shampoo. Buy one with both antifungal and antibacterial ingredients, one with zinc to calm the inflammation, and one with salicylic acid to cut through the crust. Use one shampoo for a few days and then switch. However, if you’re still having dandruff after 2 months, see a dermatologist.

3. Haircut gone wrong

Your barber just made a mistake when cutting your hair. To save it, have another barber cut that mistake on your head to salvage it. Usually a bad haircut is uneven, so cutting the hair to its shortest length will balance it out. Next, work some styling gel or pomade into your hair for a tousled look. This will help hide a bad haircut, even if it’s not the style you’re used to.

4. Greasy

Some heads are simply programmed to pump out more sebum than others. A head of overly shiny and sleek hair can be a problem too. Washing your hair is the key step to get rid of an oily scalp. Regularly washing your hair with a suitable product will prevent your scalp from excessive oil build-up and keep your hair healthy. Rinse your hair 2-3 times a week. If you work out a lot, you can wash your hair every alternate day. Ensure that you use chemical free shampoos for washing your hair.
