Haircare products aren’t just for women; men too need to take special care of themselves. Sensitivity, dryness, and roughness issues do not depend upon gender – both men and women can have these issues. And while there are plenty of brands for women, men’s brands are barely known. Either these brands that target men’s hair care do not exist, or they are not advertised enough.
This does not mean that men’s haircare brands don’t exist. If you are dedicated and go looking, you will find plenty of options in the Indian market. With the boom in the men’s grooming industry, new brands are coming up whose products are designed to keep men’s needs in focus. One such well-known brand is Brylcreem. It is a premier brand with a range of beard and hair care products known for their quality and effectiveness.
The brand was launched in 1928 in the UK and was used by barbers after giving men a cut. However, Brylcreem became a pop culture phenomenon when military men and pilots began using it. These men needed to keep their hair looking neat and presentable even after high-intensity physical activities. So, during World War II, members of the British Royal Air Force were nicknamed ‘Brylcreem Boys’ for their sleek hairdos.
Despite being a British brand, Brylcreem products are available worldwide. The company’s first product was a hair cream, which was a combination of water, mineral oil, and beeswax. This cream succeeded in making men’s hair look sleek and shiny while also giving their style some hold that would last for hours.
Today, Bryclcreem has expanded its range from just hair creams to include products like hair wax, hair gels, shampoos, and beard grooming products. It has become one of the best-known men’s grooming brands in the world.
