Most women love a good-looking, exquisitely dressed gentleman. There is not a woman breathing that doesn’t love a well-groomed and well-maintained man — at least we don‘t believe there is. While most men love ladies with long flowing locks, women have shied away from guys with long hair. It’s no secret that women like a guy with a short-trimmed mane. But, If the sex appeal of Jason Momoa or Chris Hemsworth portraying the Marvel character Thor are a sign, the day of the guy letting his hair grow long has arrived.
If you are contemplating taking a walk on the wild side and protesting visiting the barbershop there are things you should consider. Today, men have plenty of options for hair care, but what products you use can make or ruin the look you are trying to achieve. We aren’t experts in the hair care department, so we enlisted the help of someone who knows more about hairstyles for men. Below are 5 grooming products recommended by our friends at MenHairStylist.com for the fella thinking about starting the journey to grow out their hair. These are our favorite grooming and styling products for men with long hair.
Sea Salt Spray with Citrus by Beardbrand
The Spiced Citrus Sea Salt Spray from Beardbrand is a great choice for men with long hair who want to recreate the seductive, rebellious, and carefree beach look. This spray not only adds a messy, wet look to a man’s hair, it also adds volume, texture, and hold. Kaolinite clay infusion is the secret weapon in this spray. When applied, it gives hair a gritty, sandy look and texture.
Tip: The clay settles on the bottom of the bottle, so shake the container well before applying the spray. We also suggest you spray from the midsection of the strands downwards to the hair ends. If you want more textured and voluminous tousles, blow dry your hair after spraying or keep it raw and moist to look like you have just arrived from surfing.
