Common Grooming Problems
Lee Kynaston has been writing about male grooming for nearly fifteen years now, and in that time he has been asked hundreds of different questions about skin and hair care.
Some questions, however, crop up time and time again. With this in mind, I thought it might be useful to post the answers a few of them.
So, if you’ve ever wanted to know how best to avoid razor burn, thicken your hair or deal with dark circles, read on…
I will post one a day for the next eight days - Don't miss out!
Q: Is There Anything I Can Do To Thicken My Hair?
A: With up to 40 per cent of men displaying some form of hair loss by the age of thirty-five, you can see why thickening what’s left of their hair is often on top of men’s minds.
There are actually quite a few things you can do to make your hair appear a little fuller without resorting to those thickening fibres you sprinkle on your head like pepper.
Shampoos like Kiehl’s Ultimate Thickening Shampoo and Bumble and Bumble Thickening Shampoo are a good bet as they contain polymers that temporarily plump up the hair shafts, giving the appearance of thicker hair.
I also usually advise men to ditch heavy waxes – which can weigh thin hair down and make it look gappy – for lighter gels, sprays or matte clays like Hanz de Fuko’s Claymation.
Finally, never underestimate the power of a hair dryer when wanting to add a little volume to your style.
