Top Men's Health Grooming Award winning picks
Old Spice Bald Care System
Editor's note: These products are sold separately at other retailers.
Just because you're bald doesn't mean you should skip hair care — or "head care." Men's Health chose this three-part system because it includes an exfoliating wash that removes scalp buildup and a moisturizing shave cream with vitamin E for the ultimate skin hydration. Step three includes SPF to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays.
Scotch Porter Nourishing Beard Mask Set
Is your beard coarse and dry? This nourishing mask may look funny but Men's Health says wearing one for 20 minutes will tame even the frizziest beard. Containing hydrating ingredients such as shea butter and sunflower seed oil, the mask sits on your beard and loops over your ears like a pouch.
