How to choose the right shampoo for you...do you really need conditioner?

Guys, when it comes to finding the best shampoo and conditioner, it’s not as easy as it should be. The last thing you want is to end up with fluffy hair that’s too clean. You know what we mean, that softness that’s impossible to style.

While it’s great to look after your hair (many men don’t), you need shampoo and conditioner that will serve as the base for creating awesome looks… or, will allow you to rock the natural, no-product style. That’s the beauty of a good hair cleansing product.

Let’s help you find that dream product. Shhhh, we won’t tell your mates!

What is the best shampoo for men? 

You’ve probably heard the old advice that you should only wash your hair a few times a week. For ladies, it’s not always easy to get away with this (with all the products that go in the hair). But men have an easier time, especially if you don’t use pomades or wax on a daily basis.

Are you thinking, how often should men shampoo? If you can aim to wash your hair three times a week, that’s great! Let’s quickly remind you how to properly lather shampoo, as this is important in extending the freshness of the hair. You want to get deep into the roots with your fingertips, rather than just washing the ends of the hair. This will keep natural oils at bay, so you can aim for the ‘every second day’ hair washing rule. And how much shampoo should a man use? Aim for the size of a 50c piece. If the product is thicker, you might not need this much. Judge it intuitively, based on the consistency.

Okay, back to the question: which shampoo is best for men’s hair? You have so many options, although most seem to be one suits all…this often leads to choice paralysis. You’re better off selecting a brand that you like, then exploring the shampoos and conditioners in the range. For example, in our Beardburys range, we have a Refreshing Shampoo, a product for grey hair, an anti-dandruff product, and volume shampoo to help your hair grow.

Ask yourself, what are the specific characteristics of my hair? Is it oily or dry? Am I struggling with hair loss or ageing? Is it too fluffy, soft and hard to style? Am I too lazy to wash it regularly? By answering these questions, you’ll be able to better understand how to know what shampoo to use.

How men’s shampoo is different to women’s shampoo?

When comparing shampoo for men vs. women, there isn’t really much of a difference. Both follow similar formulas and share the same benefits – like cleansing the scalp, softening the hair, and preventing dandruff. Men’s shampoos are usually less fragrant, as this isn’t an important characteristic. Convenience is also a factor, as men don’t need shampoos with as much moisturising properties, simply because the hair isn’t as long. There are more 3-in-1 type products available to men but they are not necesaily suited to everyone.

Now, let’s talk about moisturising the hair. Do guys need to use conditioner?

Men’s conditioner is more of a tricky purchase. Like we said, the last thing a guy wants to try to style is a head of hair that’s too soft. So then, is it a must to use hair conditioner? Yes, it is. Even if you decide to alternate using a conditioner every second wash, it’s still important not to miss.

If you’ve thought before, are leave-in conditioners necessary, they’re not – at least not if you’re already using a conditioning product that’s packed with goodness like essential oils and antioxidants. Beardburys Conditioner Freeze, is formulated to look after your scalp while hydrating the hair. Keeping your ends moisturized and strengthened.

how to stop beard being itchy? We can’t forget beard shampoo, too

Now that your hair is looking FAB, we can’t bypass that awesome beard of yours. That work of (hair) art deserves and requires shampooing, too. If you simply wash it with water, it’ll be dry, brittle, and straw-like. It’s convenient to pick a shampoo that you can also use on your beard.

The best way to wash your beard

It needs more love than just the drabs of product that fall from your head. Not only will washing your beard keep it looking great, it’ll also stop that annoying scratch which leads to skin irritation. This is especially important if you work outdoors or spend a lot of time in the sun.

To wash your beard, cleanse the area with water and massage a small amount of shampoo into the hair. Rinse with water and use the conditioner if it feels dry and maintain the skin underneath. Once you get out of the shower, comb the beard to remove any knots. Then, it’s ready to style with pomade wax.

Using hair products on beard

We know that convenience prevails when it comes to hair products. We understand that you favour an all-in-one product for your hair, beard, and mustache. This is why taking the time to select an effective, natural men’s range that knows how you think is critical – just like Beardburys, designed for today’s modern man.

If you can get your everyday products right, you’ll have great hair. Quality, barber-designed, botanical products have the best beard shampoos for growth. Your collection doesn’t have to be extensive, not with a couple of versatile, salon-professional products.

It’s tempting just to find one shampoo and use it for everything – hair, beard, mustache, face, and body. But by adding a conditioner and a rad pomade styling product to your repertoire, you’ll notice the difference.

Your hair is easier to style… your beard doesn’t scratch her face… and you’re not scratching away at your skin throughout the day. The Beardburys range is designed for men just like you – stylish, masculine, and motivated by convenience. Aren’t we all?
