3. Help him test out products and accept the ones he likes to use
When your significant other asks you questions about the products you are using, or if the ones he is using are okay, test out the product on his hair first, then let him know your opinion.
You can give suggestions on what he can use for his hair based on what he wants to do to it. On the other hand, even though you are a curl expert and his choices in products might not be on your approval list, if it works for him, it works for him.
My husband loves using Murray’s Beeswax Hair Care Pomade, and it makes his curls really nice. I’m not gonna shoot him down for using this product because of the petroleum in it.
If he likes it, then I love it. Don’t shoot him down over commercial ingredients. The most important thing is that he feels comfortable asking you questions.
4. Don’t get frustrated if he does not understand the “what,” the “why,” or the “how”
Your guy may really want to create a hair regimen for his hair: wash day, moisturizing, sealing, styling, everything! As you are explaining certain things to him, he may get lost in all of the tips, methods, and routine of doing things.
Keep the explanation simple, and don’t over complicate things just for the heck of it. Remember when you first started your healthy hair journey? Weren’t you frustrated and overwhelmed sometimes? So with you, he needs to just feel comfortable asking as many crazy questions as he wants.
5. Don’t pressure him or press any issues
Once he has decided what regimen he wants to follow, or what products he wants to use, that will be your time to bow out of what he wants to do with his hair. When you walk past the bathroom, and see him using a mousse you don’t like, just keep walking.
You have done your part in helping him with his interests and issues he has had with his own hair; don’t get involved, unless he asks, or is doing something that will cause him harm. Just like your man is supporting you on your hair journey, be his number one cheerleader too.
Is your man on a hair journey, and are you helping him?
