Admit it: You’d just as soon wash your hair with the same stuff you use on your face, pits, and everything else. You’re not alone. “Most guys don’t use the right shampoo,” says Jeffrey Benabio, M.D., a dermatologist at Kaiser Permanente’s San Diego Medical Center, and author of thedermblog.com.
“They just use whatever is in the shower—and usually it’s something their wife or girlfriend picked out.” “But I shower at the gym,” you say. That’s just as bad, Benabio says. You wouldn’t do the same workout as 90% of the guys training around you, right?
So why would you use the same shampoo? Everybody’s hair is different, Benabio explains, and the only way to keep it looking its best is to choose the shampoo that suits its unique needs.
