Shampooing and cleansing are essential to a healthy haircare routine. As the first step before conditioning, using a quality shampoo is vital if you frequently use styling products that cause buildup on the scalp. At Humanery, our expansive collection of shampoos and cleansers includes thickening shampoos that help prevent male pattern baldness, from high-performance brands like PATRICKS, to dandruff shampoos for men and dry shampoos for all hair types, including afro hair.
How often should men wash their hair?
How often you should shampoo depends on factors such as lifestyle, hair type and texture. Shampooing frequently is a must if you lead an active lifestyle that involves sports and gym workouts. Men with fine or thinning hair generally should use shampoo every other day, while men with thick and very curly hair tend to produce more sebum, so it is fine to shampoo every three days. Remember to always follow with a conditioner or treatment to lock in moisture and add shine.
What are the types of shampoos for men?
Depending on your specific hair concerns and the lifestyle you lead, the following types of shampoos are available for men:
- Thickening shampoos - Help block the production of DHT (the main culprit of male pattern baldness) with long-term use.
Dry shampoos - Formulations that are specially developed to work without water. Ideal for men who lead active and busy lifestyles (should not replace regular shampoos).
Anti-dandruff shampoos - Ideal for men with oily and flaky scalps looking to treat and prevent dandruff, they contain antifungal and antimicrobial ingredients.
