A man applying shaving cream to his face as he smiles in front of a small mirrorIt’s a common assumption that men, in general, are unconcerned about their hair and skin care problems, but that’s not always true. Since hair is such a big part of your appearance, keeping it well maintained is important.

Following the simple guidelines below will put you on your way to a vibrant looking head of hair.

Ingrown Hairs & Razor Bumps

If quality products for African American skin care are difficult to find, black men’s skin care is almost impossible to find. It’s important to find products formulated to meet common needs most black men share like the need for added moisture, additional oil and problems with Pseudofolliculitis Barbae aka Razor Bumps.

For a black man, shaving can be a particularly painful task. It has been reported that 60-80% of black men suffer from razor bumps, at least to some degree. Other ethnic men suffer from these as well.

So what’s a brother who prefers to go beardless supposed to do?

The easiest solution would be to cut down the number of times you shave, but this is not always possible. Aside from that you can use a single- blade razor or clippers to cut the hair short above the skin. Keep skin moisturized and shave the beard in the same direction that the hairs are growing. Many men shave against the grain, which is incorrect. Have a barber “map” your face. Face mapping determines the direction in which you should shave so that it’s consistent with beard growth.

In terms of products, acids and alcohol are damaging to hair and skin and need to be avoided. Stick with products that include high-quality vitamins and oils that are friendly to your skin.

Dandruff & Your Scalp

Dandruff is the clear indicator that you have a dry scalp. A dry scalp makes it much harder to get waves. Dandruff can be caused by washing hair too much and stripping it of its natural oils too much or not washing it enough, and it is also caused by not oiling/moisturizing the scalp. Waves will be easier to obtain if your scalp is moisturized and soft so waves can be formed easier than having a dry hard scalp. Keep your scalp moisturized but don’t put too much grease or moisturizer because this can clog the pores in your scalp and cause acne.
