Mens Hair Care Necessities

Here at The Mane Stay we have a goal. Our goal is to inform and equip every man with the products necessary to have great hair. It is common knowledge that building something great requires a stellar foundation. For great hair, the foundation is simply having the products required to take care of your hair. Although this list is short, we have added a few bonus items if you want to take your hair care to the next level.


I don’t think this comes as a surprise to anyone. You have to be able to clean your hair. Shampoo is a staple in mens and womens hair care alike. Choosing the proper shampoo can be a bit daunting, there are thousands of options on the market today. Fortunately we have already taken care of that for you. Give our guide on the best mens shampoo for any hair type a read and you will have the perfect shampoo for you. The only other thing to know about shampoo is how often to wash your hair. Mens Hair Care 101 will tell you exactly how to find that out.


Although almost everyone has heard of hair conditioner, I have a suspicion not everyone uses it. Conditioners, like shampoos, come in a confounding number of formulas. A conditioner works exactly as it name suggests: It conditions the hair follicle and makes your hair soft and smooth. Additionally it seals up the hair strand itself and protects it from pollutants and locks in nutrients. Bonus: It makes hair more smooth and static free which makes it easier to style!

Styling Product

Having a great hairstyle requires a great product. The first thing you need to do is find out what product is right for your hair. Use our guide on choosing the right hairstyle product to find the right choice for your hair.

Bonus Items

With the above mentioned products you can take care of your hair and style it. That’s the basics. We have a few things we recommend to take your hair care to the next level. First, a quality set of hair trimmers is imperative. I’d almost consider it mens hair care 101. Keeping your hair trimmed and neat in between hair cuts is just something you should do. It will give you a little extra time between hair cuts (saving you money!) and you’ll always look fresh. Check out our #1 recommended set of hair trimmers:

Another great mens hair care item is dry shampoo. The perks of dry shampoo are two-fold: it soaks up excess oil to keep hair from looking greasy in between washings and it can be used as a styling aid. In other words, you can bring hair back to life after you’ve slept on it, and spraying this stuff on 100 strands of hair will make them look like 300. The best part about dry shampoo: you can find good quality ones like Batiste for a great price. For best results, aim at your roots and spray a few inches from the scalp, then massage in with your fingertips.
