Choose the Perfect Men's Shampoo and Conditioner for You
One of the keys to getting a job done is having the right tools at your disposal. After all, you don't grab a hammer when your yard needs a cut, or a lawnmower when you need to put together some furniture. The same thinking applies to haircare, specifically when it comes to men's shampoos and conditioners. But finding the right pair for your hair can be a real ballache sometimes. What might work best for your mate might not fit the bill for you.
In addition to your hair style, you also need to consider if you've got any recurring hair concerns that are grinding your gears. The right men's hair products can help you give oily hair, flakes, thinning hair and more the finger. You just have to know where to look.
This is where we steam in with the recommendations so you don't have to aimlessly browse the digital racks. Here are a few options for tackling the troubles that have been bothering you for far too long.
Get Your Hair Growing Again
Buck up, soldier. It's time to win the war on thin.
Plenty of things can trigger hair loss, from stress (thanks, kids and job!) and age to your eating and drinking habits and medical conditions. But there are things you can do to reduce hair loss. And one of the best and easiest ways to get back on the road to growth? By using the right hair growth products.
When it comes to men's shampoo for hair loss, we're quite partial to the one-two punch from Watermans. Their GrowMe Shampoo has helped hundreds overcome the impacts of stress, psoriasis, age and more to field fuller heads of hair. With caffeine (which can help kickstart your hair growth just like it can your mornings), niacinamide, biotin and other key hair growth heroes in the ingredients list, it's one of the best shampoos for men's hair loss out there. Try using it 3-4 times a week and see what it does for you, and consider tossing in some Watermans GrowMore Scalp Elixir as directed for some extra lengthening (always a good thing).
And when it's time to shine, hit your head with some Watermans Condition Me Conditioner, which features many of the same goodies you'll find in the GrowMe Shampoo.
Want to get super serious about tackling your troubles with men's shampoo for thinning hair? Take things to the next level with the Nioxin line of shampoos, conditioners and more. Their six three-step systems are split into light thinning or advanced thinning for natural, coloured and chemically treated hair. Stick to the plan and you just might look and feel like a new man.
Say Bye to Dry Hair
When trying to figure out which shampoo and conditioner is best for dry hair, you want to set your sights on something with maximum moisturising power.
Well wouldn't ya know it, that's exactly what you'll get from American Crew Daily Deep Moisturizing Shampoo. See, inside this beautiful brown bottle, you'll find a men's dry hair shampoo with conditioning emollients that help lock moisture into your hair. That keeps it nice and soft and less likely to break. And, like those chips you find in the bottom of your takeaway bag, there's a couple of freebies here as well, as it's vegan and silicone-free. That means good for the environment and good for your hair.
While one of the main jobs of any good good quality conditioner is to keep hair softer, you can keep it all-American Crew in the shower with American Crew Daily Moisturizing Conditioner, which turns your dry, brittle mop into a softer, more manageable mane ready for styling.
Give the Flick to Flakes (and Dandruff)
Of course, the hair strands themselves aren't the only source of dryness. A dry scalp can also be a major issue that's just as damaging. The itchiness. The flakey dandruff. The irritation that just won't leave you alone. It all stems from that damn dryness.
But to paraphrase an old Apple ad campaign: there's a shampoo and conditioner for that. Mint isn't just for freshening up your breath anymore. Redken Brews Mint Shampoo is chock full of mint and menthol, both of which can provide some cool refreshment for your scalp. A brew in the shower? We'll cheers to that.
It seems that going green is the go for your dry scalp, as tea tree oil and peppermint can also help halt that red itchiness and inflammation. Your mates at Paul Mitchell have you covered there, with a Tea Tree Special Conditioner that's got both in bunches. That buzzy little tingle you get after using it is just a bonus.
The Lowdown on Helping Fix Oily Hair and Scalp
Sick of the slick? Oily hair can be a bit gross on the eyes and the fingers. The root of the problem is the sebaceous glands in your scalp that get a little too amped up about doing their job. These glands produce sebum, an oil that's important for overall hair health. But too much of a good thing means a messy, oil look and feel that nobody digs.
Thousands in both Australia and around the world have turned to Sachajuan for hair concern help, and it's about time you did too if oily hair is causing your style to slip. Sachajuan Normalizing Shampoo helps you get that balance just right, adding the soothing freshness of moisture while still getting your glands in line. It's built on Ocean Silk Technology, which features two naturally harvested cold water algae called Rhodophycea and Chondrus Crispus. That's some fancy-sounding stuff, innit?
Finish off with a bit of Tucker Browne Balancing Conditioner that helps strengthen your hair while balancing out its oil levels for a well-rounded hair health routine.
