Care About Your Hair

More and more men are taking notice of their hair as an important part of their overall look and just like anything we care about; it needs our attention.

The cut, the style, the products are all cool things we must consider when we’re investing in our hair care, but more than anything, the health of our hair is the first thing that needs our attention.

>Shampoo and Conditioner
Unless you have a buzz cut, you should stay away from the £3 bottle of shampoo from your local store. Cheaper hair products can cause split ends, frizziness, and strip your hair of its natural oils making it dry. Investing in high-quality hair products like our Revive Moisture Shampoo and Deep Moisture Conditioner will treat and feed your scalp with the included Pro-vitamin B5 and add moisture to your hair when washed with warm water. Your hair will be revitalized, squeaky clean and smelling oh so fresh. Or if you're in a time crunch, opt for our Peppermint & Tea Tree 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner. 

>Drying your hair
I’m sure that a lot of us step out of the shower, rub a towel over our head, and we’re done. No fuss. But did you now that your hair is susceptible to damage when it’s wet? Rubbing hard can break our hair, cause split ends, and make our hair frizzy. If you’re always in a rush or are not a hairdryer guy, shake out the excess water and pat your hair dry in the direction of the growth.

>Trim hair regularly
Unless you’re going for the long hair look, you should aim to have your hair cut evert 6-8 weeks to keep in in the best condition. You can forget the old wives tale that cutting your hair makes it grow quicker, that’s total bs, but what it will do is get rid of split ends and make your hair look and feel healthier.

>Styling Products
Hair gels, waxes, and even hairspray are all good for getting the style and look that you want but go easy on how much you use. Too much product can make your hair look unnatural and heavy. Our Matte Texture Hair Clay will give you that all-important strong, long-lasting hold, whatever your hair type. The Sandalwood oil will soothe and nourish your scalp, leaving you with no irritation, just a perfectly styled natural look.

>Avoid Chemicals
Chemical treatments can leave your hair dry, damaged, and dull. Don’t overdo it and try to avoid any DIY home treatments, seek the services of a professional stylist instead. If you’re going for a colour change, a knowledgeable stylist will know how to prepare your hair and will know what products are best for your hair type, plus, the results you’ll get from a professional will almost always look better that your own attempt.

>Stress levels
Anxiety and hair loss have a tight relationship and the key issue between the two is stress. High stress levels can stop active growth of your hair and force the follicles to remain stagnant. When growth is stalled, the hair becomes weak and thin, eventually breaking off. Destressing will do wonders for your mindset, your wellbeing, and your hair so you must do everything you can to de-stress your body and your mind to create a healthier you.

>Lifestyle choices
Taking care of yourself is obviously great for your health. For starters you will lessen the risk of suffering from serious illness, but your hair will also appreciate your positive habits. Living a healthy lifestyle, eating the right foods, drinking plenty of water will all help your follicles stay
strong and encourage the growth of your hair. Also make sure your protein levels are high, the building blocks of good hair!

We know that sleep is good for many reasons, your body and mind need it to function at their best each day. One common benefit of a good night’s sleep is having stronger hair and nails. Your body’s cells are repairing themselves while you are sleeping and producing collagen, which makes your hair healthy, shiny, and less brittle.

Once you understand the basics and grasp what it is you need to do to keep your hair and scalp healthy, you can create your own daily routine that’s simple and easy to maintain, which needs to include MESOA’s signature hair care products for premium maintenance and styling.
