Guide for Styling Men’s Hair

Every guy wants a great head of hair, and that starts with a great haircut. But what happens once you get that great cut and have to style it yourself at-home?

It’s not always easy to recreate what the barber or stylist does when you leave the chair. But styling your own hair doesn’t have to be intimidating or the reason you don’t get that funky new cut. With the right tips and products, styling your hair can be a breeze, no matter what your hair type.

Shampoos and Conditioners for your type of hair


Knowing your hair type and using a shampoo designed for it can make a huge difference. Certain hair types benefit from certain ingredients. For example,

LOVE Curl Shampoo for curly and wavy hair contains all-natural active ingredients to enhance the volume and texture of curls or wavy hair;

VOLU Shampoo for fine hair gives immediate body and volume to flat strands; and

MOMO moisturizing shampoo for dry hair.

Conditioners replenish the lost moisture and oils that can be stripped away by shampoo. Always use conditioner after shampooing to keep your hair healthy, but especially if you have hair that’s longer than three inches. Just like with shampoo, use a conditioner that corresponds to your hair type.

How to Blow Dry Your Hair

Blow drying your hair a great way to tame frizz, but it lays the groundwork for using pomades and waxes (these will only adhere to and shape your hair if it's completely dry). Blow drying can also add volume for thinner hair that needs a boost.

Heat Serums

The most important thing to do before any kind of heat styling is to apply a heat serum to your strands. A heat serum adds a protective layer to your hair, sealing in moisture and smoothing the cuticle to keep it safe.

MELO hair shield is ideal for protecting all types of hair from stress caused by a straightener or blow dryer. The Melu spray effectively protects the hair from heat stresses.
