Shear and Shine Grooming
Hair and skin care; the domain of women. Or is it?
Why should the lady in your life have the monopoly on preening? The right answer is that they shouldn’t. Your hair and skin deserve pampering too, and you’ll be amazed at how a little bit of extra care and attention can transform your looks, confidence and even health.
At Shear and Shine, we are devoted to developing, designing and testing products and services tailored to men, specifically men of colour. Black skin and hair have particular attributes which differ to white skin, and we offer products which enhance what you’ve already got! We have had years of experience in our salon, understanding the needs of our clients and transforming this into our new range of dynamic, effective grooming products.
The natural curls of black hair are especially fragile and prone to damage. Each strand grows in a tiny, spring-like helix shape and generally grows more slowly, contains less water and breaks more easily than Asian or Caucasian hair.
Research has shown that excessive braiding, tight cornrows and vigorous dry-combing of afro-textured hair can be harmful to both the hair and scalp. Shear and Shine understands these problems and we have the ideal products to moisturize and strengthen your hair.
A common issue black men suffer with is ingrown hairs, which is caused by shaving too closely. The curly beard hairs when cut below the skin, will grow back curly. This can lead to the pointed, sharp ends of the beard growing back into the skin, resulting in spots which can become infected and even lead to hyperpigmentation (Dark Spots). Just the simple act of shaving correctly and moisturizing the skin can transform your face and give you a healthy, glowing complexion.
At Shear and Shine, the products we use in the salon and in our shop are sourced carefully, and use the highest quality ingredients. These include Tea Tree Oil and Eucalyptus oil which care for your scalp, and vitamin E which promotes hair growth and helps prevent hair loss. All have been tried and tested to ensure the highest quality and are ethically sourced. From our Argan Infused Shampoo to our Regal Beard Oil, we select nutrients and vitamins specifically to improve afro hair, and fragrances to define your masculinity.
