Hair Relaxer For Men
Being a guy myself, I know how frustrating it is to have curly hair. However, thanks to modern hair relaxer for men, it’s a problem we can now do something about.
Curly vs. Straight?
For whatever reason, we live in a society that seems to favor straight hair over curly hair on men. It’s been like this for ages, but even more so over the past decade or so. Now that everything is in high definition these days, every hair is visible. This is why now more than every, celebs have transitioned to sleek, smooth, and straight hairstyles… puffy, frizzy, and unruly hair no longer works.
And as funny as it sounds, men with curly hair styles are discriminated against in the workplace. People have pre-conceived notions that a straight, meticulously styled head of hair means that the person is also meticulous, neat, and organized. Meanwhile they associate men’s curly hair with the opposite. Although I strongly disagree with this, the bottom line is that’s how society operates.
Hair Relaxer For Men?
The hair industry is almost entirely geared towards females. Men are often left out in the dust. However the truth of the matter is that hair is the same, whether it’s on the head of a man or the head of a woman.
This means that hair relaxers that work on women will also work on men. Don’t be fooled by the picture of a woman on the box. Also, you shouldn’t necessarily pass on the product just because it’s geared towards a different ethnicity. For example, although I’m Caucasian, I still have extremely course and curly hair. Ironically, the hair relaxers for African Americans are the ones that work the best on my hair too. So keep that in mind while picking out a hair relaxer.
How To Choose a Hair Relaxer For Men?
The next step is to pick out a product or two that will be right for your hair type. Do you have thin, wavy hair? Then you will want to go with a milder formulation. Do you have thick, extremely curly hair that doesn’t respond to other treatments? Then a mid-strength would be more appropriate for you. If you are African American, then a strong formulation may be needed.
When choosing a hair relaxer for men, keep in mind that it’s not good for the relaxer to come in direct contact with the scalp. So if it’s the first time you’re doing it, you may want to have your stylist do it. Simply pick out one of our professional hair relaxers and arrange for them to use it. Buying it yourself will save you from the higher prices they pay and their markup on top of that.
However if you’re like most guys, you will want to do the hair relaxing in the comfort and privacy of your own home. If that is the case, it’s recommended you start out with a mild formulation. Keep in mind you will also need the appropriate supplies like a processing cap and gloves. What we recommend is one of our complete hair relaxer kits. Most contain everything you need all in one box!
Final Tip: Remember, there is no such thing as hair relaxers for men specifically, at least not yet. However that is just marketing, the reality is that anything that works on a women can also be used on men too. A great place to start would be with our hair relaxer hits.
