We get it. For guys, it’s not just about eliminating dandruff; it’s about finding the best way to do it while keeping up with your grooming routine. We’ve pieced together the ultimate grooming guide to help you stay free of dandruff without cramping your style. Read on to find out how.
GET THE RIGHT SHAMPOO
Don’t just conveniently use your girlfriend or mom’s shampoo - male scalps are in fact up to 60% greasier than female ones, making you more prone to dandruff. Instead, you should source out a product that’s specially formulated to treat men’s scalps and manage the excess build-up of sebum.
You could try CLEAR Men Cool Sport Menthol Shampoo or CLEAR Men Grease Control Shampoo, which cleanses the surface of the scalp and remove excess sebum from the pores while working to end recurring dandruff concern*. As a plus, CLEAR Men Cool Sport menthol contains menthol that leave your hair smelling fresh all day.
WASH THE RIGHT WAY
With the right shampoo in hand, you’ve found the sure-fire way to rid dandruff. Right?
Not just yet. The next step: Relook at the way you wash your hair and scalp. A hot bath can be relaxing, but piping-hot water can dry out your scalp and leave your hair damage and breakage prone. Try to wash with lukewarm water instead and avoid scratching or scrubbing your scalp when shampooing as this can also damage the skin and cause an irritation or infection. Massage and lather on massage shampoo into the roots, where it nourishes the hair best.
EASE ON THE STYLING
The coiff, the pouf, the slick-back - these styles may be sleek, but also require a ton of styling gels and pomades. Cutting them out completely can cause a dent in your style, but there are ways you can work with them without incurring the wrath of dandruff.
If you style your hair often, take special care to deep cleanse your scalp and hair to remove dirt, grease and residue which can build-up and clog your scalp pores to cause dandruff. Use a good shampoo like CLEAR Men Deep Cleanse Shampoo regularly for best results!
