Whilst reaching for the clippers is tempting, there are ways and means of treating the frizz without going all-out Tom Hardy at the Royal Wedding.
Frizzy hair can be a day ruiner. And we’re not here for that. If you’re going to have a bad day, make it about anything other than your hair. Having a bad date? It's okay, your hair is having a good one.
How to get rid of frizzy hair: men’s edition
If you’ve got hair, chances are, you’ve had frizz and known unhappiness. Sound serious? It isn’t. Whilst reaching for the clippers is tempting, there are ways and means of treating the frizz without going all-out Tom Hardy at the Royal Wedding.
We’re often told to try harder in order to be better. Whilst probably true for a lot of very valid and adult-sounding reasons, for coarse hair, men need to try less:
- Choose a 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner. Cut back on that extra bottle of conditioner (and help save the planet by cutting down on packaging!). Strike the balance between too much shampoo and too much conditioner by using a combination product which will work wonders on men’s dry frizzy hair. Excessive shampooing can strip the hair of its natural oils, so adding extra protection by using a combined conditioner will keep hair nourished.
- Choose a secure option. Go for perfect control and precise definition with a long-lasting wax.
Top tip: If you’ve got frizzy curly hair, men’s leave-in conditioner is a great shout. You don’t even need to rinse it out. Choose a moisturising conditioner and apply it to the mid-lengths of hair for a soft, smooth, irresistibly touchable finish. Alternatively, if you struggle with hair that becomes too oily, use a product which treats the roots, like our Oil Blaster Charcoal Shampoo.
- Towel-dry less. Furiously towel-drying hair straight after the shower is one of the worst ways to add friction and frizz-potential. If you’ve got the time, let it dry naturally.
- Hairdryer less. Avoid over-styling with heat products. These will undo all the good work we did with our combination products, by further removing natural oils. If you have to, use heat protection products. If you’re washing it less, though, you won’t need to dry it as often anyway!
So, doing less sometimes works, especially when it comes to mastering how to get rid of frizzy hair. Men’s hair, though, sometimes needs a little more frequent up-keep, especially if it’s shorter:
- Go for a regular trim. Keep the split ends at bay and achieve a smoother look by visiting the barber more regularly. Let them do the hard work for you. From advising on the best products for slicked back hair to how best to keep yours looking natural, they’ll be able to give you tips and advice on how to take back control.
- Choose a styling product that’s right for you. When searching for how to get smooth hair, men are easy targets for having everything thrown our way in terms of gels which promise to look matte but end up greasy. We’ve all been there. Try a natural modern hair cream which suits both curly and straight styles and can be used on dry or damp hair. A fingertip amount is a good place to start for smoothing through from root to end. Remember, less is more.
Frizzy hair? Men DO care, and we’ve proven it with these tips. Now your only problem is making sure your chat’s as smooth as what’s on top. And we’ve even got you covered for that.
