Men Hair Care Mistakes: How to Take Better Care of Your Hair
Styling and caring for your hair may seem quick and easy, but in reality, it’s not quite as simple as some people think. Luckily, that’s where Cremo can help. We’re here to dispel some myths and give you some tips from our grooming experts to help you manage your hair and stop making mistakes you may have been making without even knowing.
We asked our Barbers what common mistakes they see on a day-to-day basis, and we asked our grooming aficionado, Edward Harrington, to give you the low down. If you want to see these tips in action, check out the helpful video featuring Edward below:
Common Hair MistakesGentlemen, we’ve probably all been there at one time in our lives -- a time when we’re looking to change up our hairstyle. Of course, there are all kinds of questions that run through your head. Will this new style look good on me? How do I achieve it? What products do I use? Where do I even start? You probably do a little research online, ask some friends, check out the men’s grooming aisle and choose the coolest looking label, or just use whatever product is convenient. Not exactly the best process You’ll probably end up with a style that doesn’t work for you, leaving you frustrated and confused. However, it’s not the product’s fault, it’s yours. (We don’t mean that in a bad way.)
You’re not using the right productThere are two variables with any given hairstyle. First: What style are you trying to achieve? Matte, slick, or curly? The second: What kind of hair do you have? Thick, long, wavy, short, fine, or thinning? These factors are important because a product your friend might be using or the product with the coolest label might not be right for you. So do yourself a favor and make sure to read the labels and instructions, thoroughly, before you use them. You’ll be doing yourself and your hair a favor -- and you’ll quite possibly save yourself some money by not picking up the wrong product.
Emulsify your product
Wait, what? You don’t just take a nickel-sized amount of product and put it directly into your hair? OK, we’ll stop with the condescending remarks here, but seriously, you have to fully emulsify your product, not half emulsify so little splotches turn up in your hair, you have to fully emulsify.
