The days of 3-in-1 body wash/shampoo/face wash are long gone. In 2020, we’re all about specialization and ensuring that every product we use has a specific purpose.
Of course, everyone’s hair is different, so we’ve rounded up a range of men’s hair product essentials that are worth investing in if you want to keep your hair washed, conditioned, scrubbed, and styled to perfection.
Shampoo & Conditioner
The point of shampoo is to remove the unwanted build-up of sebum and styling products. However, freshly shampooed hair can feel a little rough so following up with a dab of the wryly named “Television Perfect Hair” conditioner from R+Co (with notes of cardamom, pineapple, and lavender) will restore its luster and keep it smelling great.
When TLC sang “No Scrubs” in 1992 they were wrong. Scrubs are also for your scalp and will keep this criminally-uncared-for part of your head in the best possible condition. The options below include the sea salt scrub from Christophe Robin — a hydrating scrub designed as a detox treatment to soothe sensitive scalps.
If you’ve got time, a deep conditioning hair mask will revive your hair’s shine as well as enhance resilience against future damage. If you need to fix your hair but don’t have time to lounge around with a hair mask on, you can brush through a few drops of Morrocanoil treatment to tame unruly flyaways and condition split ends.
Now that your hair is washed, conditioned and treated, it’s ready to be styled as desired. If you want to add some shape and shine à la Timothée Chalamet’s Oscar ’do then a sparing amount of Forming Cream from American Crew will do the trick, otherwise, you can spritz with a dose of Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray for a bit of weight and texture.
