When I walk around the streets of D.C. (where the Grooming Lounge is based), I often get approached by random guys asking random grooming questions. These interactions usually start off something like… “Hey… you’re that grooming guy with that place over on 18th Street. I saw you on XXX and always wanted to ask you about YYY.” Then… they launch into a question they’ve always wanted to ask, but never knew who exactly to pose such a query to. I’m delighted to be that guy and to answer such grooming conundrums. Here are just a few I’ve tried to solve lately:
Q: What can I do about my thinning hair?
A: If it’s super-thinning and you’re in a potential “comb-over situation”, I say just embrace your baldness and shave it all off. If you’re in the early stages and just starting to see thinning, I suggest using products that act as Scalp Cleansers and DHT Blockers. With little effort on your part, these products make your scalp a clean and comfortable place for new hair to grow – while also reversing the effects of DHT and other scalp conditions. Most of these products are topical treatments and can double as your daily shampoo and conditioner. Of course, we sell a few if you’re interested. You can find those here.
Q: People say I always look tired. Anything I can do to get rid of these dark spots and bags under my eyes?
A: How about not going out until 3 A.M. big shot? But, if curbing back your nightlife just isn’t in the cards, try a targeted eye cream . These products reduce puffiness and can camouflage some of the discoloration under your peepers. Additionally, make sure to drink plenty of water. Hydration is a key to great skin.
Q: Do guys really get back waxes? How painful is it?
A: Tons of men get such a procedure in our Washington, D.C. and Tysons Corner stores. It’s a super-common service conducted in supreme privacy. As for the pain… it’s not that bad at all. Let’s say a little worse than a pinch, but significantly less painful than dental surgery.
Q: How do you get your hair to look like that?
A: A lot of time and a little help from a cocktail of men’s hair goops.
Thanks for listening.
