The Guide to Styling a Balding Head


By Staff Reports

(DGIwire) It is truly unbelievable how difficult it is to find any decent information on the Internet about hairstyles for balding men.

This is particularly surprising considering how many balding men there are, who also happen to be incredibly handsome and deserve hot styling tips as much as anyone else.

Faced with the injustice of this absence of good advice, Amazology, a new line of rejuvenating skin and hair care products especially formulated with proven, natural ingredients sourced from the Amazon rainforest, has assembled all the information balding men need to create celebrity-worthy new looks.

At any age and regardless of thickness or absence of hair, with the right know-how and quality products, men can look their finest throughout every phase of their lives. A balding head doesn’t change this at all: in fact, if hair is properly styled during “recessions” of hair life, a balding head can be pretty darn sexy.

It’s a fact that 95 percent of all balding or bald men suffer from male pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness usually starts with a receding hairline at the front and is frequently accompanied with thinning at the top. Over time, this thinning turns into an all-out bald spot, and the bald spot ultimately expands to most of the head, although usually excluding the sides and around the back.

Regardless of one’s personal hair pattern, thinning hair is usually a process that does not happen overnight but rather over time. Considering this, hair on any head still demands attention and a stylish coiffure. So what are the do’s to do?

For starters, whether the hair is still thick or thinning, a great shampoo and conditioner are musts. Nothing heavy is recommended. Just strengthening shampoos and revitalizing conditioners that create more natural-looking fluff to your hair.

You can strengthen and fortify your hair with a shampoo like Amazology’s REIGN Strengthening Shampoo—which includes Açaí Oil that is rich in antioxidants that maintain structure and help prevent hair degradation; Passion Flower Seed Oil that restores resilience and helps promote healthy hair growth; and Aloe Leaf Juice, which soothes dryness and irritation.

Designed to reduce youthful vigor and suppleness to your hair, it features Cupuaçu Butter that protects hair against cellular degeneration and acts as a powerful humectant with intense hydration, and Murumuru Butter that helps improve hair structure thanks to its composition of pro-vitamin A and fatty acids that permeate hair with moisture and restore elasticity. Green Tea Extract and Aloe Leaf Juice are included to expel toxins. Biotin and Panthenol improve hair health with vitamins and proteins while Silk Amino Acids and Argan Oil provide hair strands with a soft, smooth new texture by mending damage.

Next, get a good cut. There are all kinds of stylists who know how to work with balding heads and create smoking hairstyles. A stylist will know which remaining hairs should be allowed to grow by a few inches and when to cut others to break up the receding hairline. They’ll also be able to guide you in the best ways to sport your increasingly shiny dome—which is very important because eventually almost every bald spot will expand.

The ultimate balding men’s hairstyle—when faced with a shiny bald head—is to commit all the way and shave it all off or equally sexy go for a very, very close trim.

Men who take this bold step are usually amazed at the positive response from others and the compliments their shaved look gets. For most, a shaved head actually takes off years of aging, creating a new edge and youthfulness.

Although Amazology recommends a professional for a first buzz cut, daily upkeep is easy if armed with the right products that don’t irritate and instead moisturize the scalp.

To maintain your new bold look, you’ll need to lather up with a quality luxurious shaving gel that moisturizes naturally. This will result in a smoother and closer shave than traditional foaming shaving cream.

Then using a razor, start at the top and shave down with the grain of the hair growth, taking particular care at the back. It’s highly recommended to have two mirrors handy to closely watch how it’s going on the back of the head.

Shaving a head only takes a few minutes and you don’t need to do it every day—two to three times a week is fine. Remember, the buzzed hair that grows in is quite appealing too, assuming it is kept within a fraction of an inch lengthwise.

Taking care of a newly shaved head is much like taking care of the hair that was once there. Wash regularly with moisturizing shampoo. Then, although it seems counterintuitive, condition too because the skin on the head will still need a good moisturizer.

And while we’re on the topic of the top of your head, Amazology would recommend bringing that moisture around to your cheeks and chin by making sure you cleanse, hydrate and restore with good-quality facial skin cleansers, moisturizers and eye care repair daily, while avoiding those products that will just clog up pores.

Embrace your inner sexy and give it a try. Although it’s not necessarily a lower-maintenance option compared to that full head of teenage hair, remember: bald is beautiful when done right.
