Ever since the quarantine, we’ve seen more and more guys grow out their hair – sporting long locks that can rival that of their sister’s. Even some celebrities who grew out their hair have, at one point, become the talk of the town. There are even those who have managed to enhance their careers with the help of their long, healthy locks. 

If you’re looking for a nice celebrity-inspired hairstyle for long hair that you can maintain, then this article is for you.

Call Him by His Curly Locks

Little Women’s Timothee Chalamet first piqued global interest when he played the young Elliot in 2017’s Call Me by Your Name, where he sported short curly locks. After the film’s success, he grew out his hair, and we saw him sport that thick, curly mane in events, movies, and TV appearances.

If you fancy this hairstyle, know that curly hair tends to be a tad drier than straight hair, so you should minimize washing your hair. The problem is, you might develop dandruff – so make sure to use an effective anti-dandruff shampoo like Dove Men+Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. Infused with caffeine and zinc AD, this shampoo helps make your hair stronger while preventing dandruff.

Hair Fit for Royalty

One of the most popular long hairstyles for men is the style that the king of the Seven Seas, Aquaman sports. Jason Momoa became famous for his breakout role in Game of Thrones, where he sported his signature long hair, which he maintained for other films like Justice League and Aquaman.

It can be quite challenging to maintain this type of hairstyle. You need to focus more on hair care rather than styling. Use hair products that clean, hydrate, and nourish each hair strand, like Dove’s Men+CareStrengthening Shampoo, which is a 2-in-1 shampoo that cleans and conditions to make hair visibly thicker and stronger.

Scruff It Surfer Style

For guys who feel more comfortable with the less-polished look, check out Luke Landrigan’s hairstyle for long hair. The mid-length, wavy hairstyle can make you a standout once you have enough volume to make the curls bounce and move on their own — similar to the surfer’s voluminous locks.

WWE's top superstar, Seth Rollins, often pulls back his long hair in a man bun.

You may think that this is one of the easier ways to style your long hair because all you need is a hair tie. But tying your hair too tightly for too long can actually lead to permanent hair loss. Tugging on your hair too hard can cause undue stress on the roots, weakening them over time, and resulting in bald patches.

Some tips to avoid those dreaded bald patches:

  • Give your hair roots and scalp a break by tying your hair loosely, or not tying them at all, from time to time.
  • When shampooing, massage your scalp gently and avoid rubbing your hair vigorously. Use a good deep cleaning shampoo that’s formulated to make hair stronger and thicker, like Dove Men + Care Strengthening Shampoo.
  • Use warm and cold water simultaneously when showering to stimulate blood circulation in the scalp. This helps strengthen hair roots.
  • Comb your hair regularly to avoid snags and dreadlocks.
  • Use a spiral band to tie your hair because it causes less stress on the hair.

Taking Care of Your Majestic Mane

No matter your hair length, style or texture, make sure that you follow a proper hair care routine. And choose the right products to keep hair healthy and looking good.

Wash, but don’t double-wash.

Once you rinse off shampoo, don’t re-apply unless your hair is extra dirty and calls for a double wash. Some people may think that repeating the process is good for keeping the hair clean and ensuring more nutrients from the product are absorbed by the hair strands, but it can actually dry out the hair. Use CLEAR Deep Cleanse Anti-Dandruff Shampoo to keep your scalp clean and feeling fresh.

Dry out your hair the right way.

Avoid rubbing your hair briskly with a towel because friction can easily damage wet hair. Vigorous rubbing can also stretch a hair strand past its breaking point. Get used to patting the hair dry using a soft, highly absorbent towel. And then use good hair care products that promote hair strength.

Minimize wearing tight caps or hats.

Very snug caps or hats pull on the hair roots, which is not good. Constant pulling can weaken the hair follicles and result in those bald spots. Try to wear them less and let your hair out instead.

With the right hair care and some confidence, you can rock any hairstyle for long hair. Just remember the tips mentioned above to ensure your locks remain healthy.
