Men’s Haircare is More Important Than You Think

Some of our favorite products that keep the Achilles heel of men’s vanities under control.

How important is hair to men? Well, biblical character, Delilah, contests that it’s everything. And when Samson loses his superhuman physical power after she cuts his long locks, her theory reigns true. As most men (obviously, I’m generalizing) go about their lives proving to everyone else that they are so far removed from the world of beauty, haircare seems to be the realm that strikes them the hardest. What’s worse than their favorite sports team losing? Balding. It’s the Achilles heel of men’s vanities and is a common occurrence.

Hollywood continues to perpetuate the symbolism behind hair: power, strength, attractiveness, and so on.

Though balding may begin at any age for men, it’s noted that​ 85 percent of men experience major hair thinning by the age of 50 and start losing hair by the age of 21​. There’s still research being done as to why, but developing light-stages of alopecia while also participating in unhealthy habits, such as smoking, may lead to balding. Nonetheless, balding can drastically affect one’s self-esteem. Hollywood continues to perpetuate the symbolism behind hair: power, strength, attractiveness, and so on.

Like most things, preventative actions can be taken to ensure nature’s course doesn’t strike too harshly. Proper shampoos, conditioners, and hair masks can fortify hair and stimulate hair growth.
