Men's Hair: Body-Volume-Shine
HOW TO GET MORE VOLUME IN MALE HAIR
The media standard for voluminous hair isn’t exclusive to women. When you’re constantly inundated with perfect styles from social media and ads, it’s easy to view your hair as less than ideal. What’s the secret to all that volume? More importantly, what can you do to rock the look you want?
It doesn’t help that many styling tips and products can add long term damage to your hair. You may get a boost in volume — and confidence — but at what cost?
Sure, thick hair has an advantage when it comes to styling, but that doesn’t mean you’re out of options if your hair is thin or fine.
Sustainable hair health (and appearance) is rooted in a healthy diet, regular exercise, and results-driven cosmetic solutions. If you’re struggling to manage thin or fine hair, here’s what you need to do to regain power over your hair.
UNDERSTANDING HAIR HEALTH & THICKNESS
Why do some guys have sky-high volume (think Elvis, Bruno Mars) while others’ hair falls flat? To answer that, let's look at the relationship between hair anatomy, health and appearance.
The cuticle is the outer layer of the hair shaft, and it protects the inner layer of hair, called the cortex. The cortex is responsible for giving hair strength, vitality and shape. Healthy hair depends on a healthy cuticle, which is made of keratin protein scales that overlap and lock in vital moisture. A healthy cuticle creates softness, shape, moisture, health and shine. The appearance of your hair depends on strong, healthy cuticles.
When hair cuticles become damaged, they contain cracks and holes that have trouble retaining moisture. The result is dry, dull, and highly porous hair. Hair looks flat, dull, and altogether appears unhealthy. A little moisture goes a long way to reinvigorate follicles and boost hair volume and shine.
HOW TO GET MORE VOLUME
Whether you style your hair daily or let it fall wherever it may, we all want a little volume — especially for nights out or special occasions. Fullness, body, volume, and shine work together to create a head-turning head of hair. Some men run their fingers through their hair and call it good, while others spend valuable time styling hair with tools and products. There’s no right or wrong way to style your hair, but a boost of volume will add length and look fuller.
It’s easy to grab whatever product is at the grocery store, but these hair products often boast big promises with little delivery. Worse — products containing polymers, talc, silicones, and blends can damage your hair, weigh it down, and make it look flatter.
HOW TO GET HEALTHIER HAIR
You can add body, volume, and shine to your hair. Instead of temporary solutions, it’s vital to protect the cuticle to restore moisture balance. Hair craves regular hydration, but it doesn’t like mystery ingredients.
An effective hair moisturizer will contain one or more of the following ingredients:
- Emollients to smooth the hair cuticle and repel heavy, excess moisture
- Humectants to attract moisture to the hair
- Occlusives to lock in hydration
INGREDIENTS TO AVOID
Certain ingredients disrupt the natural moisture balance of your hair and strip the outer lipid layer. The result is heavy, weighted down hair that looks dull and flat.
To retain moisture, avoid products that contain:
- Alcohol Polymers
