If there really is one thing that every man’s hair needs a lot of, it’s moisture.  Yes, moisture is what can make the difference between healthy, fast-growing, and soft hair.  Or, even a hairstyle that’s limp, dry, and damaged.  Considering how important moisture is to the health of a guy’s facial hair, it is pretty clear that finding ways to lock in moisture should be a top priority.

Why is Moisture So Important to the Health of a Man’s Hair?

Moisture is something that our bodies need in order to be healthy.  When we’re dehydrated and depleted of moisture, crucial bodily systems can shut down, and we will look extremely unwell.  Just like the rest of our bodies, our hair needs a good deal of moisture in order to maintain good health.  Without the proper moisture levels, our hair can stop growing properly, while becoming damaged, dry, and dull.  Even worse, a true deficiency in moisture can cause our hair to fall out.

Moisture doesn’t just come from the hair follicles, either.  Our skin, like our follicles, produce an oil known as sebum.  The purpose of sebum is to moisturize our skin and hair while creating what’s known as a moisture barrier.  This is a barrier that locks in moisture so that it can’t escape.  The thing about sebum production, however, is that it’s largely dependent on having a healthy balance of hormones, maintaining a good diet, and refraining from habits that can strip it away.

What Can Strip Away Moisture?

Our skin and hair need a lot of moisture to function properly.  But many of us, it seems like the odds are stacked against us when it comes to retaining proper moisture levels.  This is because a lot of different things can strip moisture away from our skin and facial hair.

  • Dry air, which is especially severe during the cold winter months, literally dries out our skin and hair, sucking out moisture.
  • The same goes for hot water and strong winds.
  • A lot of commercial products contain sulfates and other harsh ingredients that literally strip away moisture.
  • Some of us are naturally prone to dryness, whether it be caused by genetics, hormones, or dietary factors.

What Can Add More Moisture?

Good news, there easy ways to add more moisture to our skin and hair.  Not only that but lock it in so that it can’t escape.  Besides maintaining good health and avoiding dry air as much as possible, we can use naturally formulated products such as pomade, matte cream, or even grooming sprays that are capable of giving us lots of moisture while sealing it in.
