Washed Up: A Simple Guide To Men’s Shampoo

With a lot of the focus in male grooming being on face washes, scrubs and moisturisers it’s easy to forget to take care of your hair as well. Using an effective shampoo daily is an important element of your morning routine. Not only does excess hair product, oil, pollutants, and dirt build up in your hair but also sebum.

Sebum is produced by your skin and gives hair it’s healthy shine by coating each strand. However build up of sebum over time can give hair a dirty, greasy and dull look. Therefore it’s vital you use shampoo daily to avoid unhealthy looking hair. Not only is it important to use shampoo to prevent sebum build up but also to aid the prevention of dandruff, dry and thinning hair.

Fortunately the shampoo companies have done all the work and offer a number of specialised shampoos that address these concerns. But above all it’s important to make washing your hair a normal part of your grooming routine to ensure clean and healthy looking hair. Not to mention easy hair styling.
