Scalp2Tip: Get Great-Looking, Healthy Hair

Breaks and Splits

Skip Strong-Hold Products

Gels and other products that promise long hold can damage hair. Combing your hair after you use them can break hair. You may also lose hair over time.
Avoid Boar-Bristle Brushes

They're costly and can cause damage by creating a lot of friction. To save your money and your hair, use a plastic brush with smooth-tipped, wide-spaced needles.

Healthy Scalp
Deep Clean to Control Oil

If you use styling products on oily hair, you need a deep clean. Apply an oily-hair shampoo when your hair is dry. Let it sit a few minutes, then rinse out.
Soothe Your Scalp

Massage your scalp. While it may not make your hair shinier or thicker, it feels good and -- like other massage -- can help relieve stress, pain, and muscle tension.

Volume and Lift
Go Short With Thin Hair

Losing hair doesn't mean losing style. Get a stylish short haircut. Don't try to cover up with longer hair. The strands tend to separate, showing through to your scalp.
Shampoo Do's

Choose a shampoo for your hair type: straight or curly, fine or damaged. Lather your scalp. Then let the shampoo wash through your hair. This prevents damage from overuse.

Control and Shine
Keep It Neat

Don't let your beard wander aimlessly down your neck. Trim it to an inch under the jaw line from ear to ear. Moisturize your neck, especially if you wear a collar.
Show Frizz Who's Boss

Molding mud, also called styling mud, can get frizz under control and give hair definition. Rub a pea-sized amount between hands and apply. Avoid hair wax; it can clog pores.
