Whether you’ve recently shaved or you’ve been sporting the no-hair look for years, do you know the best bald head care practices? Well, read on to find out…
1. Don’t ditch the shampoo and conditioner
Those tiny hairs on your head may be hard to see, but they still need some love! Oils and dirt can build up on a bald scalp, so be sure to use a dab of shampoo when you shower and follow up with a moisturizing conditioner to keep that head flake-free. And while soap or body wash may seem like an easy option, they can have a drying effect. It’s best to stick with products made for hair.
2. Shield your scalp from the sun
Hair keeps your head warm and protected. Now that you have less insulation on top, you might find yourself paying more attention to the weather report. On chilly days, cover up with a beanie. And when the sun is out, throw on some sunscreen or a hat.
3. Keep hydrated and moisturize
Especially during the dry months, or if your head gets a little too much sun, your scalp can become dry and rough. Get hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using a sensitive-skin moisturizer on your head.
4. Try a scalp massage
Some people say that rubbing a bald head brings good luck. That may or may not be true, but our barbers let us know that stimulating your scalp promotes good blood flow and encourages healthy hair growth.
