Top 10 Hair Care Products for Men In India with Reviews and Prices
Lets just say..men are blessed when it comes to hair care. I mean here i am ..bathing my hair every other day with a shampoo costing me 1/3rd of my salary and still having dull, lifeless limp hair, and there is my husband who uses some very very ordinary shampoo (the product should have the word “shampoo” on its label is how he buys it) and still boasts of shiny healthy black hair. Although times are changing. With the increasing pollution exposure and chemical laden products, men are facing hair fall, hair loss and early hair thinning these days. Brands are coming out with specially selected hair styling and hair care products for men keeping in mind their length, hair texture and quality like straight, long, frizzy or wavy. Here are the must have hair products for men including shampoos, conditioners, hair gels for styling, hair oils, etc which will make hair healthy, long, black and styled in a jiffy! While shampoo and conditioner should be used regularly, styling products and heat should be used only occasionally on the hair as they are chemical loaded and harm the hair in the long run.
As men wash their hair almost daily, it is very important to choose mild shampoos and other products as chemical laden products if used frequently can cause a lot of buildup. There is a myth that conditioners are more important than the shampoos as they are the last product we use in hair wash but it is wrong. All hair conditioners, whatever might their formula be, work on the same principle of providing a coating to the hair so that they remain frizz free and untangled. So the men’s shampoo should be given prime importance while choosing the hair products for men. Less chemicals with more natural ingredients should be preferred in the ingredients.
