5 Ways You Can Help Your Boo Out With His Hair Journey

183841663

“What are you using?” “Why do you use those products?” “Is this product okay for my hair?” These are the questions you get from your friends, sisters, cousins, and sometimes even random women on the street. But what if your husband, boyfriend, or sons are the ones doing the asking?

It might be a bit weird, shocking even; I mean, when since did they take an interest in their own hair?

I never thought I would get asked certain questions from my husband regarding hair. I get everything from comparing his hair products with my hair products, to “Why does my hair feel greasy?”, “Should I use this paddle brush?” “How can I make my curls pop like yours?” And you know what? I actually get excited when my husband asks me stuff pertaining to hair care. It’s refreshing.

It just means that he values my opinion, tips, methods, and my own hair journey. So I help him out with a few tips of my own. If you are faced with the same issue, here are 5 ways you can help your man out with his own hair journey:

1. Be supportive and open to what he wants to do with his hair 

Just like your significant other supports you on your hair journey, the long wash days, all the products in the bathroom and kitchen, and the weird tactics you do to get your hair to grow, you should do the same for him.


You might need to exercise a little patience, because this may be the first time your man is really thinking about taking care of his hair, and it might be because you rubbed off on him.

So he is really coming to you in a sincere way to ask you for your help, and men don’t usually ask for help too often, so take what he wants and needs for himself into consideration, and help a “brotha” out.

2. Don’t use your curly girl language on him

When you chat with your curlfriends about the Wash ‘n’ Go method you have discovered for the perfect curls, or why you decided to big chop, they get it; they understand everything. But your man will not have a clue about what you are really talking about until he learns the language too.

So be easy on your man; remember that he is coming to you for simple guidance for his hair, and not to engage in your latest study of climate maintenance, and how it disturbs your curl pattern. He just wants to know how to make his curls nice.

Angel Park! You are funny lol my man is not on a hair journey, but he does ask about certain products to use to keep his hair curly after his shower instead of his hair drying in an afro. That’s about it…we don’t do length checks and hair diaries lol umm no
