Hair care guide for Sunny Coast gents

Are you a gent wanting to get those thick locks back? We have some simple hair care tips for you to get those amazing locks.

Tips for thinning hair

If you’re worried about a receding hairline, it’s vital not to go for the old fashioned comb-over. Head to the hairdresser and ask for a cut that’s shorter on the sides and longer on the top, this will highlight all the right areas. If you’ve got a strong jaw line, you might want to look at shaving altogether! Remember to use matte products if you want a thicker look when styling. If you’re getting desperate, you can try washing your hair in eggs once a week for extra protein (a home remedy that’s been gaining traction) or visit a Sunshine Coast hair treatment and replacement specialist.


Timing is everything when it comes to your haircut. Find a hairdresser you trust and make your booking early or late in the day, as this is when they’re least busy and less likely to rush. Also, communicate clearly as to what style you desire—you may even want to consider bringing a picture along!

Thoughts for the shower

It’s important to not over wash your hair with shampoo. Stick to once or twice a week if you don’t want your hair to dry out. Also remember to pat your hair dry – not rub or blow dry – after a shower, if you don’t want to break and damage your hair.

Avoid Grease

When using products, less is sometimes more. Overusing products – especially wax – can leave your hair looking oily. Also, if you’re prone to greasy hair, it’s important not to play with it. Stimulation of the hair follicle can further encourage your overactive oil-producing sebaceous glands.
