5 Hair Care Tips For Seamen

Men's Hair Care (1)

Just because you are working on board the ship doesn’t give you the excuse to be lax about your hair maintenance.  Here are some essential hair care tips for seafarers.

  1. Don’t overwash your hair
    Some guys like to wash their hair twice or even thrice.  By doing so you are stripping your hair of their natural oils and it can be too drying for your hair.
  2. Pat, don’t rub
    Rubbing your hair with your towels can damage your hair.  Pat dry instead.
  3. Cold wash

  4. Keep it cool
    Let your hair dry naturally.  If you must use a hairdryer, set it to low heat.  Too much heat can cause your hair to be dry and frizzy.
  5. Watch your mouth
    What goes into your mouth affects your crowning glory as much as it does your  washboard abs.  A diet rich in zinc, protein, iron and vitamins A, C & E
