Hair care for men

I haven’t paid much attention to hair products in the past, but want to get into it. My hair is wavy, and similar in length to the pic related. Currently I just shampoo it when it gets oily. Can you guys tell me what product i should use and maybe what type of brush should i use, and generally good hair care routine. Anything will be helpful since I don’t know anything about this stuff 🙂

    Hair care is a meme unless you are black and need to apply oils. Every teenage guy has incredible hair yet does nothing for it and occasionally slaps some dollar store shampoo on it if he remembers. That is because their hair has not been raped by DHT yet, remember DHT is a process of destroying hair, for some men it’s so quick that the hair dies and they become bald, for some men their hair quality just decreases over the years. The greatest hair care routine thus is finasteride.

      DHT fears are overblown. if you have a problem it will manifest itself to you very obviously(hair falling out/norwood 5)
      for those people yes DHT. if you don’t visibly have thinning hair there is no point caring about it.

      Wish mine had been like that when I was a teenager rather than the frizzy, dry, wavy and completely unmanageable mess it was (and I am white). Truth is I didn’t know the first thing about hair care and just shampooed it every day because I thought that’s what you’re supposed to do. Didn’t even use conditioner most of the time.
      You might have had easy to manage hair, but not all of us were so lucky.

    Nothing. Wash your hair once a week with something nice like an aesop shampoo, and that’s it. Anything more youre consoooming for no reason. You can also drop the shampoo and just wash your hair with water daily if its shorter

        Haircare is a hecking scam, I wash my hair with warm water and nothing else like twice a week if I feel like it and my hair is 10/10 perfect. When I first dropped shampoo, it got oily at first, but in two weeks things went back to normal and I’ve never used shampoo since.

        stupid

    Hey Op,
    Where exactly does the symbology for the grim reaper come from? Like why a tall, gaunt figure with a black cloak and a scythe? Did people millennia ago have a belief like that? I didn’t read your post but I’d love it if you could help me out. Thank you.

      Dearest Anon,

      The symbology for the Grim Reaper is geographically associated with the North Sea and specifically England. He has a scythe because he reaps those ready to die and or their souls. He was often viewed more as a benevolent figure (psychopomp), taking those ready to die, those old and infirm, with him. During that time he wore no cloak or a white cloak. Because death became more associated with disease, specifically the plague, while white continued to stand for purity his cloak eventually became black. The reason why he worse a cloak is to mask death because often it comes suddenly, but also to signify his travels (a travelers cloak) to take the dead to the afterlife and to take the dead from all over the world.

      Yours truly,

      heck off, shampoo hebrew. All you need is a mild soap once every 3-4 days. What’s bad for your skin is just as bad for your hair. Shampoo is a scam. It’s literally detergent. First it strips your hair of all the oils and even some of the outer layer, and then hebrews you into buying another product to replace what it stole, with some garbage mix of chemicals.

        Okay this is what you do. You don’t get super fancy and adopt a hair care routine that’s affordable and easy.
        Go into a drug store and buy a set of cheap store brand shampoo and the matching conditioner also a hair drier and either a wide tooth comb or a detangle brush. Remember: Don’t make it too complicated.
        Washing your hair when it’s oily is the correct instinct. Shampoo is meant to be massaged on your scalp (NOT THE HAIR), conditioner is meant to go on the hair (NOT THE SCALP).
        If you picked up a leave-in conditioner you wash your hair, wash your body, step out of the shower, dry off with a towel and apply the conditioner while your hair is still wet.
        If you picked up a wash-out conditioner you wash your hair, put the conditioner in, wash your body, wash the conditioner out, step out of the shower and dry with a towel.
        In both cases you now comb/brush your hair and use your hair drier on cold until your hair is dry (or almost dry if you’re impatient).
        The purpose of the shampoo is to remove dirt from your scalp, it also makes your hair less oily when you wash it out, but this is a side effect. Don’t drain all of the oil in your hair with it.
        Shampoo leaves the hair structure roughed up and a suboptimal pH. Both of those helps the conditioner penetrate your hair for hydration. Drying it closes the hair scales and gives you a matte sheen – the sign of healthy hair.

        >Unscientific antisemitic insanity
        Soap isn’t good for long hair. It leaves a residue that gunks up your hair. Shampoos wash out a lot better.
        You’re also not supposed to use shampoo on your hair. It’s for your scalp.

        Nothing. Wash your hair once a week with something nice like an aesop shampoo, and that’s it. Anything more youre consoooming for no reason. You can also drop the shampoo and just wash your hair with water daily if its shorter

        >Wash very infrequently and don’t use conditioner
        Somehow this is even worse advice. Please wash your hair when it looks oily or after doing sports. Also not applying a
        conditioner after washing with shampoo is really low hanging fruits for better hair.

    I was noticing that when I shampooed and conditioned my hair it would get really wispy and frizzy looking and it would take a day or 2 to build back a good layer of oils. I tried to use just conditioner, no shampoo and got the same result. Next I tried just shampoo, no conditioner. Perfect result, hair looks good and falls nicely. Ever since then I’ve stopped using conditioner, only shampoo like once a week. The shampoo I uses is the ogx biotin shit in the purple bottle. Am I stupid?

    Went to the barber today. Hair was over shoulder length, not looking too well, but also neither unhealthy or anything. Just didn’t have a cut. Tell him to cut off 2-3cm and get it all into shape. Talks me into getting layers. Takes off 7-9cm in places, at least 4cm overall. Look like op pic rel now, but even shorter.

    FUUUUUCKKKK

    it doesn’t look bad, but literally not what I wanted…

      barbers love talking clients into getting layers – it’s a gateway. the layers never look good on their own, so they can talk you into dyeing it.
      also layers need to be maintained regularly coz hair doesn’t grow at the same speed uniformly.
      it’s all about upsell nowadays.

        get a trim at least on the sides and back unless you’re going for an even longer style. either part the top or figure out some sort of style with it. you have nice texture though

      I’ve got curly, thin hair that’s in a constant afro and taking care of it has become tedious. What short haircut would fit my type of hair? (provided it covers my large forehead)

      my buddy has that same loose curl look, he went the serj route and grew it out for another 2/3 years until the curls starting weighing themselves down

      I’m 32. Had long hair for nearly 20 years. This is the shortest it’s been in a long time – I just randomly chop it now when it gets too heavy.
      Too old for this look? Short hair makes me look like a lesbian woman.

      age is a cope for balding crabs in a bucket. it looks good, you dont mind it, job doesn’t care, why cut it? you look overweight though so maybe tie it up and go for a run. also try experimenting with your facial hair

    I will never understand how people say not to wash their hair (with shampoo) every day. My hair will be oily as heck even 12 hours after washing it. If I went more then 2, you could literally wring it out to get the oil for your salad. Should I be bottling this shit up and selling it? Sicilian boy hair oil

      Your hair and scalp get crazy oily because you are constantly washing away the oil every day with shampoo, which causes your scalp to start overproducing oil to compensate.

    I’ve been washing my longish hair with cold water every day for the past month. It looks absolutely fine and my skin is not dry anymore, so I ditched the skin moisturizer as well.
    I can’t help but think that skincare and haircare are a marketing scam. In fact, I stopped using shower gel as well. I don’t think I smell bad, and my skin is not itchy after showers.
    So daily cold showers seem to work best for me

      what hair type do you have? I’ve got relatively thick and wavy/somewhat curly black hair that tends to get dry throughout the day. When I only rinse with water it gets a little greasy and I think it builds up dandruff. Is this just an early reaction that goes away?
      I only use shampoo like once a week if at all precisely because my hair needs the moisture from conditioners which I use every day. It’s hard for me to imagine that just rinsing it cold will do a better job.

        Mine’s completely straight. I think I had more dandruff when my routine was hot shower + shampoo. I have no idea about yours though.
        I feel hot water is not so good for my skin overall.
        But it’s winter. Maybe I will sweat more when it’s summer. But for now this seems to work

          yeah that’s what I suspected. No idea what our med ancestors did to their hair but it seems like my hair type needs some kind of product to retain moisture.

    Bros I’m struggling, my hair is indescribable, more frizz than curly, I recently discovered that it’s because it’s dry. I usually just shower with only water, it’s better but still dry, then I tried conditioner and did not notice any big change apart from my hair being soft which isn’t really a good thing if it looks like total ass.
    I tried looking into anti-frizz stuff which does kind of work when I straighten my hair, before it fell apart the moment the weather was bad.
    But I still feel like I’m being a stupid, what is the non-stupid way to deal with my issue, I haven’t tried oils yet, is that the silver bullet I’ve been looking for? If so does anyone know of some good ones to try in the EU. I don’t care how much it costs I will pay infinite money to fix my frizz mess.

    What should I do for oily hair, dandruff and scaly/itchy scalp? I tried no shampoo for like 20 days and it gets terrible after 2-3 days and then plateaus from there. Showering with shampoo helps the dandruff and oil but it comes back rapidly after a day or two
