How to Take Care of Curly Hair: Men’s Styling Tips

We know the frustration. Your straight-haired friends can take care of their hairdos with little to no effort while you’re running late for the regular Friday night drinks because your curly strands won’t behave no matter what you’ve tried.

Why Does My Hair Take so Long to Dry?

I have strange hair. It’s just a reality I have learned to deal with over the years. Stylist after stylist has commented on it: “Oh wow. Your hair is wavy on the top and board straight on the bottom.” Yep. The top half of my scalp grows my hair differently from the bottom half of my scalp.

Whether blow drying or air drying,...

Too Much? The Results of Leaving Purple Shampoo in Hair for an Hour

Brass in my hair has never been a problem. Why? I am a natural copper head. Literally. I was born with hair the color of a bright shiny copper penny. Though it has grown even more auburn over time (with streaks of grey now, thank you), I still hold those shiny copper strands among my locks. And I have the freckles and red skin tones to match.
