Sample Article on Routine tips for Male Haircare

Men and women are equal in every stratum of life, but there are certain differences between them both that makes each individual unique on his/ her own. The skin of men and women is different from each other in terms of firmness and thickness, women being the softer sex enjoys the soft and tender skin type.

Introduction:

Coming to this males and females, both have different scalps: males’ hairline grows further back on skulls that are why males have pronounced foreheads as compared to women. Hair fall brings serious harm to men as their forehead further extends giving them the look of bald. Human beings feel bad when not looking presentable and this will lead to low esteem and low self-confidence.

After giving this article a thorough reading, your worries will fly in the air, as they had never been there before! Below are a few tips that will save the hairline on males’ scalps. Remember consistency is the key to success.

  1. Avoid over-wash: I think it’s in the nature of the majority of men that they feel good after taking bath daily. Bathing includes washing of hair with shampoo,  the effect of harsh chemicals on hair will lead to hair fall, so stop washing your hair daily, rather limit it to twice or thrice a week. Give break to your hair from intense chemicals in shampoos. Revert to the solution of amla, reetha and sika kai: add one tablespoon of each natural ingredient in two cups of water in a pot and boil it until its half. Cool it and preserve this mixture in an air-tight jar. Take glass jar only. Before taking bath, massage the mixture on your scalp and after 15 minutes rinse with normal tap water. This will increase hair growth and keeps your scalp bacteria-free.
  • Gentle drying of hair: it has often been seen in men that they rigorously rub their scalp in order to get dry hair. These act only damages the hair follicles as wet hair are the tender ones. Avoid putting stress on the scalp let the hair dry in natural air. This will save your hair from getting further harm.
  • Use natural conditioners: as we all know, hair strands are made up of proteins, so nourishing the hair with extra protein will give a boost to the hair. In spite of using chemical-based hair conditioners, use natural, home-made conditioners. Henna is known as the best conditioner for hair for ages, to avoid its color pour any kind of oil into the mixture. You can use egg in any oil, whisk well and apply the mixture to the scalp from roots to tips. Let it sit on the scalp until it dries out completely; wash with any mild to herbal shampoo with normal tap water.
  • Chlorine-based water: people who love swimming must know about the harmful effects of chlorine on their hair; it takes out natural oil from the scalp, make your hair porous, changes your hair’s natural color, and weakens the hair follicles. To avoid such harm, use a swimming cap and right after coming out of the pool, rinse your hair with clean water immediately.
  • Lesser exposure to chemicals: men like styling their hair and for that reason, they apply styling tools, hair gel, hair setting sprays, hair dye and other related products. Please try to understand, health is far more important than looking good, stylish or chic. For healthy hair, lessen the use of such chemicals on your hair.
  • Choose your shampoo wisely: getting dirt and pollution fumes out of hair is necessary. Shampoos serve this purpose to utmost level. Shampoos contain chemicals; harsh chemicals disturb the pH level that leads to hair fall, brittleness and porous hair strands. Choose herbal shampoos or mild shampoo. In order to check the pH level, just take a strip of litmus paper, dip it in diluted solution and check the pH level. pH 7 is the most desirable level; healthy for hair and scalp.
  • Minimize heat exposure: in order to attain healthy hair, you must avoid/less exposure to sun heat as well as heat emitting from hair dryers. Never go for hair dryers for drying your hair, as this will harm your hair leaving brittle and frizzy hair. Let your hair dry naturally, this change in your attitude will save your hair from damage. In case of emergency, you can use a dryer but keep the level low. Don’t target it directly towards the roots, rather just keep its mouth of hair tips.
  1. Avoid cold shower: cold showers blocks the blood capillaries that carry the required nutrients needed for hair growth. This sudden paralysis will affect hair health. Do not go for hot showers as well as it will take out all the natural oil away from your scalp, leaving behind an itchy and dry scalp. The best option is to rinse your hair with clean lukewarm water. Moderation always save lives.
  • Cap/hat usage: males are mostly bikers/cyclists, so in order to avoid dirty hair or protect themselves from harms of weather conditions, they prefer to wear tight caps, mufflers, scarves and then wear a helmet on it. This habit can lead to partial alopecia or can result in permanent alopecia.
  • Choose the right hair tools: Hair is vulnerable; keeping them safe will increase its life. Wet hair is even delicate, so never use a brush, comb on wet hair, rather comb your hair when dry completely or you can use your fingers instead.

Multiple Healthy Hair Tips That Actually Work


Hair are the strands that are made up of proteins, primarily. There are different shades of hair: black, brown, dark brown and light brown. The immature or with age greying of hair gets started. The problem arises when the hair turns white/grey or shed off rapidly. Falling of 50-100 strands per day is a normal thing as old ones will shed off and create space for the new ones to grow.

There are number of reasons that cause hair damage. Leading factor is pollution and polluted water, the increased amount of harmful chemicals in the water give rise to hair damage.

The second biggest cause is the lifestyle and wrong eating habits. Everyone nowadays is obsessed with getting slimmer bodies. Starving has been considered as dieting which is a wrong concept, but people took fancy of it and prolong their starvation in hope of getting slimmer bodies. Third and foremost cause is the stress, we all know that stress is the root cause of all the diseases and hair fall is also an ailment.

Everyone needs glossy, healthy looking hair, but in order to get glossy and healthy hair, we need to eat healthy food, quit dieting in the name of starvation, use boiled water for washing your hair, if washing your whole body is not possible, then at least use distilled/filtered water to hair wash. Living a stress free life is a rare blessing, but we should at least try to curtail the level of stress to minimum stage…. It should never rise to the level of panic attack or extreme anxiety.

Having said, try to make the above-mentioned guidelines, your daily routine habits. Follow the second step that is hair care routine: below are few tested and tried solutions for getting glossier and healthier looking hair.

Onion Juice: The benefits of onions are clinically proven as it is extremely helpful in hair growth and its strengthening. Do not squeeze onion juice from juicer rather crush the onions on grater and then put the grated onion in any thin linen/cotton fabric, squeeze the fabric into a tight ball and ooze out the last drop of the onion. Make sure to take purple hued medium sized onion. Size should be directly proportional to the length and volume of your hair.

Onion and Castor Oil Solution: Castor oil has been known for its laxative qualities is a thick oil extracted from castor beans. Castor oil is a carrier oil which means it should never be applied directly on the scalp or should never be used as the only oil for hair, rather it should be mixed with any other oil to enhance its super qualities. Grated and squeezed onion juice should be mixed with few drops of pure castor oil, mix them well and apply to the scalp. Do not cover the hair with it as is quite sticky and doesn’t come off the hair easily. Repeat the process, twice a week for abundant hair growth.

Vitamin E oil and Fish oil Capsules: both the capsules are rich in vitamin E which is the main ingredient in hair growth. These are again the carrier oils, so it is recommended that it should be mixed with other oils like olive oil, coconut oil, mustard oil, sesame oil etc. Apply the mixture with your forefinger; do not stuck in your nail, as it would lead to skin rash on the scalp.

Mixed Oil Solution: This recipe is one of my favourite one! Mix four oils: coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil and castor oil. Make sure to take one teaspoon of each oil in equal quantity. Microwave the solution for 15 second for blended properties. If you do not have microwave in your home, no worries, you can simply put all the oils in any steel utensil and heat it over the stove for five seconds. Let it cool down and apply with your fingers onto your scalp.

Yogurt and Egg Mixture: to give your hair, shiny, straight and healthy look give this recipe a try! Take two-tablespoon mustard oil, add one whole egg and one-tablespoon fresh yogurt (do not take canned/ frozen yogurt product). Mix well until it turns into smooth yellowish thick solution. Apply this solution to scalp first, then finish off the remaining liquid over the hair till roots. Cover your hair with a shower cap and let it sit for two hours. Rinse well with warm distilled water. You can repeat this recipe daily, if you want to.

Paraben and Silica free Shampoo: Choosing right shampoo for right hair is the key to healthy hair. Paraben and Silica are the chemicals that are truly harmful for hair and it results in weak eyesight and even skin cancer. Always go for mild to herbal shampoo and use any shampoo twice a week. You should never treat your hair with chemical based shampoos more than twice a week.

Conclusive Remarks: For getting glossier, healthier hair, avoid self-harming diet that is starvation, try to live stress free life, turn your lifestyle into healthy cult. Use homemade products and switch to herbal treatments for hair. Choose mild shampoo for lesser harm to the hair. Apply oil twice a week and take head massage thrice a week. When you will try these guideline and recipes then you would be a better version of your precious self.
