Hair and Scalp Care for Men Ė To Do
1. Clean
Regularly wash the hair to minimize clogging of pores and other problems. Use a mild shampoo to clean the head every day. Rinse thoroughly to remove all the shampoo constituents.

2. Condition
Regularly moisturize the hair to keep them smooth and soft. Conditioning can be done using a 2-in-1 shampoo with conditioner, or by using after-shampoo conditioners. Other way is to apply a leave-in conditioner on dry hair.

3. Exfoliate
Twice a week remove the dead skin cells as well as dirt and oiliness from the scalp. Use a gentle exfoliating scrub, such as any face scrub to do this. A face scrub will be mild enough to be used on the head.
4. Massage

Once in a week, massage the head to promote the flow of blood. This will also help to sooth the nerves, relax the muscles, promote hair growth, and increase their shine. Massage the head using your fingers, with or without applying any oils. In case you would like to have an oil massage, use oils such as almond, olive, coconut or other essential oils.
