This topic is often not discussed as much as the issues that women have with curly hair. Just like their female counterparts men experience dry scalp issues, manageability issues, difficulty finding products for their 'hair type', and issues with facial hair. We had difficulty finding a natural hair range aimed specifically at men with curly hair.
Men that are clued up may use products from popular female afro hair care ranges. Here are a few tips to get you started.
- Do not over cleanse your hair. By washing your hair too often, Harsh detergents in main stream shampoos can strip your hair of its natural oils. This can cause scalp problems like dandruff.
- Balance Protein and Moisture in your Conditioners. Both are important for healthy hair growth. Moisture gives your hair elasticity so it does not break as easily when styling and protein gives your hair strength. Alternate between them if possible.
- Moisturise frequently. Due to the curl pattern of afro hair oils do not always make it to the ends of the hair. Find a good light, water based moisturiser and seal that moisture in with an oil.
- Avoid mineral oil- and petroleum-based hair products. These products clog the pores and impede hair growth. Use light oils such as jojoba which is excellent for dry hair.
- Eat a well balanced diet exercise. Exercise, increases circulation and encourages blood flow to the hair follicles. A diet rich in protein, vitamins and iron, feeds the hair and encourages healthy hair growth.
