So here are the “#5-Must know hair hacks for Men in 2021”
#1-Replace Shampoo with a Conditioner
Don’t shampoo every day. Regular shampooing can be bad for your hair. Shampoo tends to remove the natural oils present on your scalp. So if you shampoo every day your scalp will produce more than the required oil, to cover the oil that has been stripped off by the shampoo.
This overproduction of oil on the scalp can make your hair dirty and greasy. Plus it can even result in dandruff. So try to reduce the usage of shampoo by replacing it with a conditioner.
Note:- I am not saying, that you should completely replace shampoo with a conditioner. That would be absurd because a conditioner doesn’t clean the dirt present in your hair. It only makes your hair shiny and soft. So, in short, reduce the frequency of shampoo by using a conditioner. So wash your hair twice a week with the shampoo (i.e alternate days) then use the conditioner whenever your hair gets messy or greasy. (2 times at most).
Following conditioners were proven to be effective for good Hair Care-
#2-Wet Wash Cloth
So you are just out of bed and you are like ‘shit I’ve gotta hurry for the meeting ‘ but your hair is dry and completely messed up, so the first thing you’ll try to do is apply some product or water and try to set things just to make it right, in the worst case possible you’ll try to hide it with a monkey cap, hat or something. So here’s what you can do. Take a washcloth and make it wet. Then use the damp washcloth to pat your head. And do not be rough. Do this simple thing and you are good to go.
Okay at this point most of you would know what dry shampoo is. So as we discussed earlier shampoo can be bad for your hair. We also saw that we cannot completely rely on the conditioner as a replacement for shampoo. This is when a dry shampoo can be a lifesaver. What dry shampoo does is simple, the alcohol or starch in the product soaks up the excess oil and grease in your hair, giving it a cleaner, fresher appearance. Dry shampoo can be very helpful for styling your hair and make you event-ready. The only thing that you have to take care of dry shampoo is the amount of usage. So use your dry shampoo only twice between two sessions of wet washes and not more for good outcomes. With the things sorted out

So here’s what you have to do. Take a small spray bottle and fill the quarter of it with the apple cider vinegar and the rest with the water.
