Men's Hair Care Routine for Any Hair Type

Men's Hair Care Routine for Any Hair Type

We couldn’t be more proud of you for mastering your beard care routine. That fuzz is looking fresh, my guy. But you didn’t think we’d let you out without a winning mane to match, did you? 

Straight hair? We got you. Waves? We’re grabbing our boards. Curly coils? He’s electric. Got some kinks? Don’t we all? 

We’re giving you the play-by-play of men’s hair care routine success. Read on for the best hair care routine for men with straight, wavy, curly, and kinky hair. 

The Supply Lineup

First, let’s talk men’s grooming supplies. If you want healthy hair, you’re going to need a quality shampoo—or 2-in-1 if you’re into the whole convenience thing—and a few other tools to round out the routine. 

  • Shampoo – It sets the foundation, so stick to the good stuff.
  • Conditioner – A 2-in-1 is probably sounding pretty appealing right about now.
  • Beard wash – Please, we beg of you, don’t go near the beard with regular shampoo.
  • A bath towel – Optional if you’re more of an all-natural guy—respect.
  • Hair product of your choice – Gel, wax, pomade, you get the idea.

We’re about to comb over our expert hair care tips for straight, wavy, curly, and kinky hair. We hope it goes without saying, but every routine should include head hair and beard hair. 

For Straight or Wavy Hair

Straight and wavy hair makes for a hair routine men tend to appreciate—an easy one. Before mastering your straight or wavy hair care routine, we suggest first nailing the cut. A cut that feels and flows right will make hair styling all the breezier. 

A couple of classic straight-or-wavy styles to consider: 

  • The short fringe
  • The Gosling fade
  • The blow-dried quaff
  • The middle part shag
  • The high top 

Hair Care Routine for Straight or Wavy Hair

Now presenting your routine for slow-walking through gawking crowds forever:

  • Shampoo often – Straight, wavy, and fine, thinning hair tends to oil up more quickly. If you’ve got oily hair, fight off the extra sheen with a shampoo or 2-in-1 a good 4–5 times per week. 

  • Blow dry to perfection Sometimes, all this hair type needs is a fine-toothed comb and a blow dryer. Blow dry your hair in the direction you want it to sit and stay.

  • Palm a pomade – For a rugged-meets-put-together look, finger comb some low- or medium-hold pomade through your hair in the morning to lift it and keep it there. 

  • Man washing hair

    For Curly Hair

    Curly hair strikes a look all on its own—that ladies usually can’t resist. It’s best not to get in the way of your natural Chalamet. Give those coils what they need, and they’ll do the work. 

    A few things curls need on the regular: 

    • Extra moisture to tame frizzy hair
    • Protection against humid environments
    • A stronger styling product to smooth style

    Hair Care Routine for Curly Hair

    Make your way to curly hair mastery by following these tips.

  • Shampoo less often Too-frequent shampooing can dry out and break your curls—not a good look. Wash 2–3 times per week with a moisturizing shampoo.

  • Use nature’s dryer For you, curly-haired king, the blow dryer might add unwanted frizz to your game. Let your hair dry naturally while you inevitably win the day. 

  • Apply a hair cream for curls Yes, products designed for men’s curls exist, and yes, you should be using them. If you think Kit Harington wakes up like that, you’re wrong. 

  • For Kinky Hair 

    You’ll see kinky or afro-textured hair rocked close to the scalp or several inches out—and it’s all good. Like straighter hair, the maintenance largely depends on the starting style. 

    A few kinky hairstyles that make an entrance: 

    • The clean-cut buzz
    • The classic fade
    • Braids for days
    • The immaculate afro

    Hair Care Routine for Kinky Hair

    No matter the style, that dreamy, coarse, thick hair is highly prone to breakage, so proper care is vital to showing off this uniquely fresh look. 

  • Shampoo sparingly To avoid drying out kinky hair, reserve shampooing to once or twice a week with a sulfate-free shampoo. 

  • Towel pat to dry – Like curly hair, kinky and coarse hair doesn’t love the blow dryer. Use a bath towel to pat dry after a shower to avoid damaging hair strands. 

  • Condition and moisturize – If your kinks are causing more headaches than head nods, they might be thirsty. Lather and lock in moisture daily with silicone-free hair care products.

    Get into your Hair Flow with The Beard Club

    Let’s face it, guys. Hair care is about more than just the beard (even though the beard is a wildly crucial part). Caring for all the hair gracing that gorgeous crown of yours brings the whole look together. 

    We created Beard Club as an unassuming, unobtrusive space for dudes to be dudes—which we felt the men’s hair and beard space was painfully lacking. We’ve got quality beard products, no-fuss bundles, information for days, and no B.S. 

    Oh, and did we mention our new 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner is finally here? Our wives have been deep-sniffing our scalps for weeks. And, of course, treat that face lace to the good life with our top-rated beard oil jam-packed with nourishing ingredients, such as essential oils to help support beard growth.
