Expert Advice for Good Hair Days

At 18|8, we’ve seen our share of bad hair days. Clients come in daily with troublesome locks that won’t cooperate no matter how much product is applied or which comb is used. We can help. Here are some of the best tips we’ve found to soothe hair follicles, calm unruly strands, and keep your hair looking its best.

Stop Over-Washing

You should only be washing your hair 2-3 times a week. If you’re doing it more often than this, your hair is losing essential nutrients and natural oil, which is definitely making you see an increase in bad hair days.

Turn Down the Heat

If you’re washing in extra hot shower water, chances are your hair is feeling the burn. The hot water strips your hair of necessary moisture and can even add a layer of unfortunate frizzy strands to the mix. How can you avoid this? Keep your shower toasty and warm, but right at the end, just before you grab your towel, crank the water to cold. This will give your hair a blast of shiny, energetic, bounciness that will last all day.

Get a Proper Hair Cut

Nothing can tame your hair better than regular cuts at a premier men’s salon like 18|8. We have the knowledge and expertise to turn any bad hair day into a great one. Our stylists and barbers specialize in men’s grooming and styling, so you can be confident that you’ll step out of our salon looking and feeling your best, just like a true modern gentleman should.
