Hair Products For Men

Since I am female and have very short hair and don’t use hair products apart from shampoo and conditioner I am probably the most spectacularly unqualified person to write about hair products for men. It is true that most Wahl hair clippers Australia on the market, from shampoo to gels and mousses are marketed at women rather than men. The reasoning is quite obvious; more women than men are going to purchase hair products. But is this true anymore? Many men have longer hair than in years gone by and men are more conscious of their appearance as far as I can see. Men are under the same pressures from glossy magazines and the images on TV that women have been bombarded with for years.

It may not be as obvious or perhaps we are so attuned to the pressures of image on women that the men are not getting equal air play or maybe they are just not complaining as loudly? In any supermarket or chemist store the range of choices for men are woefully small. I assume that men are choosing form the women’s section in sheer desperation at the lack of choice. There are a number of products that are marketed in a gender neutral way, interestingly these are often organic products.

The rather patronising product (in my opinion) is the “Just For Men” range of hair colours. These are designed specifically for men’s hair (which is good) and are targeted specifically for covering grey hair so the demographic would presumably be in the older men range. I’m not sure what the problem is that I have with this product but it does annoy me. After all we don’t have hair colour “Just For Women”, it’s just hair colour. Admittedly it does have an improbable picture of a model on the box but I presume that it would work just fine on men’s hair as well as women’s hair. I think my problem is that there is no real reason for this gender difference and so I find it irritating that we can’t just have an improbable picture of a man and a woman on the box of the Clairol or whatever brand.

Okay, so I have had my little rant but it ain’t over with the perfect colour and shampoo. For that matter what makes black the only colour container that men’s products can come in? I can’t see what makes black more manly, surely if we are to go by the crazy gender colour segregation that goes on for babies, the men’s products should come in a blue box? I was very happy to discover the Menscience website. The shampoo comes in “shock” a white bottle and has reviews that seem to be genuine and helpful. It is advertised as unscented which is probably a good point as to why men might avoid hair products that are targeted at women.

The Human Touch

Nurses and doctors. Absolutely essential members of our community. The sort of people that we don’t bat an eyelash extensions training Australia. Certainly in my times of need, I put my entire trust into them to help me get better. They simply know what’s best. Sometimes, it feels as if they know you better than you know yourself. Having this much power over people, you’ve got to earn it. That’s why it’s so hard to get into health and medicine at universities. This sort of credential that grants you access into so many different people’s lives doesn’t come easy.

Nursing is within a similar vein to being a doctor. It’s helping the doctor facilitate the patient. More often than not nurses are just as well informed and well equipped as the doctor who is overseeing everything in the clinic or hospital. But the nurses are there, just for that extra bit of support. That extra leg up. In such a tense environment, everyone wants to feel supported. Even the doctors. Nurses and doctors have a benevolent air about them. They are there to help us, they have our best health interests at heart. Their job, is to see us get better and to see us grow healthy again. I have a tremendous amount of respect for doctors simply because it’s a massive job to be able to take on other people’s lives in your hands. Nursing jobs are all about making sure that you are accommodating, kind and friendly and all the nurses that I’ve met in my life have been this. It makes you truly feel like you are in good hands. Job’s for doctors to my knowledge are out there in the world, waiting to be filled by amazing individuals. 

I think that it takes a lot to be a doctor. Not only the academic excellence and university side of things. I mean really being able to be there for your patients and having that trustworthy and strong side about you. It’s necessary to be able to provide the expertise side, as well as the friendly and accommodating side for both nurses and doctors in the industry.

The best doctors always provide a warm touch to their job. A human side, if you will. The entire health profession is all about making the patient seem cared for and well looked after. Someone is putting their trust in your hands because their health is in a questionable territory. Job’s for doctors should be filled and taken on by people who have this in mind. They must deal with their patients with humane warmness. Nursing jobs should include a component in their curriculums that teach them the values and worth of good patient and nurse relations. In fact, it wouldn’t hurt if each sector of industry provided more training in this essential skill. People must deal with other people. This is harder than it seems, there are so many different types in the world and it’s not going to be a walk in the park all the time.
