Why can't I just use the same products my wife/girlfriend/mom uses?

The head and scalp are one of the many areas where men and women have different needs, however many men simply settle for a woman's shampoo because they either don't want to go through the process of finding a shampoo that meets their needs or they simply don't know the difference using a suitable shampoo and conditioner would make. Taking proper care of your hair is an important part of preventing hair loss. At Sportsman's, we carry a variety of shampoos, conditioners and styling products that are created just for men to meet their specific hair needs.


Why shouldn't I just buy a bottle of something when I'm at the grocery store?

Selecting the proper shampoo, conditioner or styling products for your hair is an important part of your hair appointment. Because your stylist is familiar with your hair type and needs, they will be able to help you select the best products for your hair. All of Sportsman's Haircut's stylists are professionals, and well trained in our product selection. When you buy your hair products elsewhere you may not be using the products that are best suited for your needs.


SHAMPOO

No matter how little or how much hair you have, you need to take care of it properly. Even though your hair is dead, your scalp is alive and needs to be well. The hair that gives you a "good or bad hair day" is actually the hair shaft. The hair follicle is at the root of the shaft and the follicle is the living part of your hair. So, good scalp health is essential to healthy hair.

Keeping a healthy blood flow to the scalp stimulates hair growth. Keeping your hair (scalp) sclean will increase the circulation which will increase the growth of thicker, healthier hair. Many shampoos leave residues that clog the pores of the scalp or irritate the scalp. Look for a shampoo that does not leave a residue. Your stylist can help you find the best fit for your hair.


CONDITIONING

Grooming your hair with the right conditioner is very important. Conditioners moisturize, detangle and reconstruct your hair. When you wash your hair, you are stripping away your natural oils. But, if you didn't shampoo, you would have dirty, greasy hair. Unfortunately, our natural oils like to attract natural dirt.

After shampooing, a good conditioner can restore the oil as well as hold moisture in your hair. Many conditioners contain a protein that will penetrate your hair to strengthen it. Conditioners also restore balance and give your hair elasticity and shine.

Sportsman's Haircut carries shampoos and conditioners developed especially for MEN! Ask your stylist which products work best with your type of hair.


HAIR COLORING

The men's hair color industry has grown tremendously in the last few years as men of all ages are using hair color more than ever before.

There are various types of color and different techniques used to color men's hair: gray coverage, hi-lighting and beard or mustache tinting. Sportsman's Haircut offers options that will suit your specific needs whether you want to cover up some grays or add some color to your hair.

Consult with a stylist if you are thinking about hair color. Your stylist will be able to recommend the service that will be the best fit for your hair.
