Hair Care Tips for Men with Long Hair

Posted by Prell Staff on

Long hair is not that unusual for men. In the last century, it first became popular in the 1950s and 1960s as a form of self-expression and rebellion against the shorter hairstyles of the previous generations. Then came the 1970s where hippies and the psychedelic culture were prevalent. After that, the raving 80s were all about rock and roll. In this era, long hair was all the rage. Everybody wanted to be a rock star that could sport long hair. This way, you were considered cool.

Usually coupled with an inordinately large amount of facial piercings and tattoos, long-haired men were often presumed to be unsuccessful. Fathers used to warn their daughters about them. But times have since changed! From The Beatle’s front man John Lennon and Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain to the versatile actor Johnny Depp and the tennis player Rafael Nadal, long hair for men has become very popular and has been spreading like wildfire.

Fast forward to the 2010s, and a lot of men have been sporting great styles of long hair. The most popular hair style to date is the man bun. This new hair style challenged stereotypes everywhere with more men growing out their hair in order to achieve it. To rock this look, just pull back your long hair from the forehead and tie it up to the center of your head, either on top or in back. You may need some practice tying hair, and you may have to go through some awkward phases as you grow out your hair!

But the long haired lifestyle can be very demanding. The only way to achieve healthy long hair is to have the right hair care regimen. Whatever style that you’re aiming for, here are some tips to care and maintain for your long hair.

Go for the Right Products

The key to a healthy head of hair is to keep it hydrated. Wash your hair regularly with a good shampoo that removes grime, oil, and buildup, but also adds moisture. Don’t forget to use a conditioner on occasion, either! This helps your hair battle dust and makes it smoother and shinier. Avoid getting chemical treatments, as they make your hair dull and leave it damaged. Don’t be shy on going all out for your locks...recent polls show that over 70% of women under 34 find long hair attractive on guys!

Dry the Correct Way

Drying your hair incorrectly is one of the leading causes of hair breakage. Wet hair is susceptible to damage, so avoid rubbing your hair with a towel and combing it. Instead, practice pat drying. Use a cotton shirt to make it more effective. There’s nothing wrong with the usual air dry, either. Comb or brush your hair when it’s completely dry. Also avoid tight hats and tight ponytails because they also lead to breakage.

Stay Healthy

The condition of your hair is a reflection of your overall health. Start by eating healthy, getting ample exercise, drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep and reducing your stress. By adhering to these tips, you will get a healthier scalp and great looking hair. It has been said that looking well is related to having better hair growth.

Trim Regularly

More trips to your barber this time. Trimming your hair will reduce split ends and breakage. If you are growing out your hair, it’s best to have it trimmed at least every six weeks to eliminate the damaged part. This also helps your hair to grow at a faster rate.
