So last month I had attended this Debate Session which was held at my university. I was joining as the Host.
My outfit was supposed to be supporting the role that was given to me on the occasion. Till this Point, everything was going Alright.
My face was looking fresh, so was my hair as well. But just when I was about to style my hair, I somehow couldn’t end up getting my desired hairstyle
And That pissed me off. The more I tried to fix the mess, the more it became worse. What I learned from that incident is that my hair health is not good at all.
I mean if my hair looked Ok (APPARENTLY) But They were not as healthy as they should’ve been. Or maybe it was my Bad hair day.
What are Bad Hair Day?
These are the days when you couldn’t get your Hairstyle on Point. It’s Like, Some days you wake up and Bang! you already look like a Super Model.

1: Use Argan Oil
First Up in the List of Best hair care tips for men / Tips to get Good hair for Guys is “Use Argan Oil”
Argan Oil Gentlemen! This Premium Quality Oil is Jam-packed with tons and tons of Benefits.
Rich in vitamins, Minerals, and Antioxidants, I recommend each and every one of you to purchase one for yourself.
The fact that it has Vitamin E in it, ensures that this Oil is gonna Make your Scalp super healthy.
Plus if you are experiencing slow hair growth lately then you need not worry about this problem as well because Argan oil is gonna take care of this problem of yours as well!
It plays a role in the prevention of Hair Breakage and Split ends as well. To sum up the benefits of Argan Oil I would like to say that: It gives Shine to your Hair, makes your Scalp healthy which results in the stimulation of hair growth, Helps with Inflammation.
And It also Plays a Role to Solve the Problem of Dandruff as well!
What’s the Best Way to Apply Argan Oil?
Some people on the internet will recommend you massage your scalp once a week with it. But what worked for me personally and for a couple of friends who I suggested this method, is to use it as a Pre-styler and Heat protectant.
Gentlemen, Heat coming from your Blow Dryer can cause a lot of damage. It burns out all the essentials Oils and nutrients that are important for the betterment of your Scalp. And thats where Heat Protectant comes in handy.
You can use some Sea Salt Spray as well as a Heal protectant. But what I have found is that nothing can beat Argan Oil in this.
The Right Way to Apply Argan Oil
- Take some amount on your Palm and rub it gently to activate the Oil.
- And then Apply it on your Hair. Make sure to apply it properly, covering every part of your head, including hair and scalp as well.
- And finally, Now you can Blow Dry your Hair without any worries (I will be talking about The right way to blow Dry as well in one of the later points).
2: Apply Oil Mask
Next Up in the List of Best hair care tips for men / Tips to get Good hair for Guys is “Applying Oil Mask”
Men are really afraid of taking care of themselves. The reason I am saying this is because still there is a perception that men are meant to stay as Raw as possible.
“Rough look is the Best!”
You don’t want to go for a Keratin Treatment? OK Sure! You Don’t to Book your appointment to get Scalp Treatment Done?
Don’t worry because I am not recommending that as well. Guys! I am not forcing you to spend your money on moisture treatment or to get the Detox Done. But what I want you to do is to spare some time out of your busy schedule to take care of your Hair!
And This Process is really Simple. All you need are Just 2 Ingredients (MAXIMUM 3) and thats it.
Recommended Oil Mask
Ingredients that You Need are as follows:
- Some Coconut Oil
- 1 Egg.
Mix these two properly and Apply it on your head. Apply it Properly all over (Cover Scalp + Hair). And let it stay there for about 20 minutes and then you can wash it off.
You can also add Yogurt as well in the mixture which will moisturise your scalp leading to much better hair Health.
3: Stop Shampooing your Hair Every Day
Next Up in the List of Best hair care tips for men / Tips to get Good hair for Guys is “Stop Shampooing DAILY”
Some of us still believe that the more you shampoo your hair the better (and HEALTHIER) they are going to Look.
Whereas in reality, Shampooing your Hair daily can remove all of the essential oils and nutrients that are very ESSENTIAL for your scalp. And that leaves your hair dry and unhealthy.
Shampooing your hair 2-3 Times a Week is Enough (For Most People)
Avoid going to the places where there is a Lot of Dirt. Because let’s be honest, you can not have a Head full of Dirt and Not wash it for 2 days. Thats gross.
And if you are an Asian like me then you know it already that we Men here in Asia sweat a lot (And they have Oily Skin and Scalp as well).
So we can take this 2-3 times a week to 3-4 times a week. But rest of You Guys, Chill!
4: Do Not Apply too Much HAIR PRODUCT
Next Up in the List of Best hair care tips for men / Tips to get Good hair for Guys is “Stop Applying too much of the Hair Product”
Let’s say you bought this New hair Product that suits Your Hair Type. Thats great, but it does not mean that you have to apply tons of this product!
“More product = Better hair,” Said nobody ever. Apply the Optimal Amount of Product in your Palm and Rub it nice enough to activate it. And then finally Apply it on your Hair.
Make sure that your fingers reach every hair on your head. Excessive Hair Product is Just Going to make your hair Look Greasy and thats it.
This means that More hair Product on Monday is going to make sure that On Tuesday you are waking up with Oily / Frizzy Hair. And that definitely means You need to take a Shower / Apply some shampoo to your Hair (to clear out this Mess).
And thats Bad. You don’t want to make your hair product, a reason to Apply Shampoo on your Hair, Every single Day.
5: Protect your Hair from Water
Next Up in the List of Best hair care tips for men / Tips to get Good hair for Guys is “Protect your Hair from Water”
Ok so let’s say You wake up with Hair looking super sexy. I get it, Gentlemen. I know this feeling. But You got to Shower Because your BODY NEEDS A WASH!
Chances are that, if you take the shower and get your hair wet then they might not look as good as they were looking before.
What could you possibly do to solve this problem? PROTECT YOUR HAIR FROM WATER! But How?
Gentlemen, I know that you might find this product super feminine but you know what? You Got to do what you Got to Do. At the end of the Day, it will be you Who will have the best Hair Around.
No Body is Going to come and See what you are Going to get such luscious strands of Hair. So Do what you have to do. People See Results. Charm them!
6: Use Dry Shampoo for Oily Scalp
Next Up in the List of Best hair care tips for men / Tips to get Good hair for Guys is “Use Dry Shampoo”.
Oily Skin is a cause of Many Skin and Hair Problems. Greasy Hair is one of them. You don’t want your Hair to Look tangled and Slimy. Right? Well, in that case, you need to do something about the Oils that your Skin secrets which are causing this problem in the first place.
One way is, To take a Shower and use Shampoo but what if you are getting late for a Meeting?
Solution 1: Use Talcum Powder on your Hair (It Sucks all the Oil and Greasiness)
Solution 2: Use Dry Shampoo (My Favourite)
“Girls use Dry Shampoo”. But Gentlemen! What if girls use Dry Shampoo? Does that stop men from using it? I mean there isn’t any kind of rule that says which product is for the Girls and which one is for boys only?
How to Use Dry Shampoo?
Just Spray some amount of dry shampoo on your hair and then style it the way you want. Thats it!
But Hey Don’t try to be over smart and Skip your Shampoo days because of Dry Shampoo. Your Hair still needs that Fresh start which only a Regular Shampoo (And Conditioner) can provide.
7: Go for a Hair Cut Regularly
Next Up in the List of Best hair care tips for men / Tips to get Good hair for Guys is “Visit your Barber Regularly”
Get your hairstyle refreshed every three weeks, even if you are letting your hair grow, still your hair deserves a Salon appointment (Every 6-7 Weeks in that Case Approximately).
OK. Let’s say you have to attend a really important Meeting tomorrow. Everything is on Point except for your hair.
Indications that your Hair NEED a Haircut

- And Still Looking Just OK
- Bad Hair Days are like a Routine thing Now

Next Up in the List of Best hair care tips for men / Tips to get Good hair for Guys is “Use Anti-Dandruff Products”

How to Remove Dandruff? (No B.S)
I know that you have tried a lot of products and remedies. And None of them have worked for you. I am not saying that remedies don’t work but it’s just about the fact that a single REMEDY can’t work the same way for different people with different hair types.
“Is their any product that can solve Dandruff problem for all Hair Types?”
Yes, there is. And the name of the solution is, “Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo“. Replace it with your regular Shampoo or use it on alternate days and you are gonna see your dandruff going away in days!
10: Shorten Your Hair
Next Up in the List of Best hair care tips for men / Tips to get Good hair for Guys is “Shorten your Hair”.

For those of you who don’t know what a Cowlick is, It’s basically a group of hair (or a single hair strand) that is not letting your hair look good by standing out from the crowd.
How can you possibly get rid of a Cowlick?
First thing’s first, For Shorter hair, Cowlicks are super difficult to treat. But Hey! Do people even notice cowlicks on shorter hair? Well! certainly not (except a few people who are gonna notice each and every detail about you anyway).
But for those who have medium to long hair, Cowlicks is definitely a considerable Problem. I will recommend you work around with it.
What most people usually do (to solve this problem) is that they try to go against it. But what instead you should be doing is that You need to let it go the direction the Strand wants to go and only then you can get rid of this mess.

Next Up in the List of Best hair care tips for men / Tips to get Good hair for Guys is “Take Less Stress”.
Guys! I Don’t understand why are you stressing over things. If I have said it one time, I have said a million times as well that:
“Stress isn’t going to do any good to you”
It is only Going to interrupts your thinking patterns and negatively affect your skin, hair, and overall health.
Your Body produces a Hormone called “Cortisol” when you are under stress. What this hormone does is that it cancels out the effects of testosterone. In Short, Stress = 1 Million Problems.
Plus it is also known to affect the function and cyclic regulation of the hair follicle. When cortisol is present at high levels it has been demonstrated to reduce the synthesis and accelerate the degradation of important skin elements, namely hyaluronan and proteoglycans by approximately 40%.Courtesy: https://jddonline.com/articles/dermatology/S1545961616P1001X/1/
19: Avoid Hard Water
Next Up in the List of Best hair care tips for men / Tips to get Good hair for Guys is “Avoid Hard Water”.
Gentlemen! What are you doing to yourself? Why are you washing your Hair with Hard water? I understand that the water supplies in your House are responsible for all of this Mess but you NEED to do something about it, ASAP!
Two Disadvantages of Hard Water (Regarding Hair)
- # 1: Hard water makes your Hair scales stand up which will make your hair appear dry and rough.
- # 2: It gives your Shampoo and Conditioner a tough time. So basically hard water makes it difficult to rinse out the shampoo/conditioner from your hair. In short, these products become less effective when you are washing your hair with Hard water.
You apply conditioner to soften your hair and make them look good. The Shampoo is supposed to clean all the dirt that is collected in your Scalp. But hard water makes it difficult to clean it out, actually leading to an immature cleaning session.

My answer would be, for maximum days (Like for 90% of the days), moving around is also not gonna affect your hairstyle much. And you can get back to your perfect hairstyle just by moving your fingers and fixing some hair that has dispositioned. So You don’t have to worry about that or consider it a Big Problem.
