Do you have any good hair grooming products to recommend?
Now I’ve never been a fan of the deflection technique of answering a question with a question. However, in this case, I am going to do precisely that with a few questions. Your question requires clarification, as “grooming” refers to multiple zones on the body. I will presume that you mean hair grooming. But again, where? Read on to find one some answers.
Do you have unruly leg hair?
If so, blame genetics, hormones, the cold weather, etc… Though frankly, blaming is unproductive. So here is how to retaliate against those prickly pests.
I actually learned this tip 13 years ago from a cyclist friend of mine who fancied himself a master of aerodynamics and needed his legs to be as smooth as silk. I was initially skeptical. But my scientific curiosity made me want to test his theory. He claimed that using Johnson & Johnson Baby Oil gave the best and longest lasting shave. It beat everything on the market. Was he right? ABSOLUTELY!!!!! I discovered that lavender scent soothes while it smoothes. And if you pat dry when toweling off, then you’ll retain the natural moisture from the baby oil.
Do you want your hair to be groomed without looking like you groomed it?
I understand. We all want to look effortless. Fortunately, Bumble and Bumble keyed in on our pathologies and created Bumble and Bumble Texture hair (un)dressing crème. It’s a rock star crème that can be used on both short and long hair to create an undone, yet clean and well-kempt coif. If you need body for longer hair, then use it at the roots when the hair is damp and proceed with a blowdry. If you need to give your short hair just a bit of style without it looking greasy or waxy, then rub a tiny drop around in your hands and then rub your hands through your dry hair.
Note: Titrate this one, as a little goes a very long way!
Are you a Paul Bunyan on the outside and a teddy bear on the inside?
Your strong and sexy scruff will never admit to needing sensitive TLC. So anticipate its needs without bruising its ego. Dude No.1 All-natural Beard oil conditions scruff using wonderfully woodsy fragrances that are not too overpowering. It comes in a roll on, which you can either roll over hair directly (if the hair is short) or roll into your hands and then place on your beard (if the hair is a bit longer).
And here is my last question for you to answer:
Do you now feel empowered to tame your mane??
