The Best Shower Routine for Washing Your Hair

The best shower routine for washing your hair

Enjoy having healthy hair with the best product recommendations and shower routine for washing your hair.

Wash your hair before cleansing your body 

Finish all of your hair care – wash, condition and mask, before cleansing your body. It’s a simple consideration that can help you avoid clogged pores, dullness, body acnes and other skin woes.

Use an exfoliating shampoo with natural oils

Once a week, swap out your regular shampoo for an exfoliating product, like Drunk Elephant’s T.L.C. Happi Scalp Scrub. Exfoliating your scalp will help you clear your pores of product buildup, excess oil, dead skin cells and dandruff – good riddance. Follow with your usual conditioner.

You can add a scalp massage while you’re washing your hair too!

Use a hair mask, every week

Apply a hair mask every week to give your tresses extra conditioning and attention. Find one designed for the current state of your hair, like a formula for curly textures or one for color-treated hair. Or try one that works well for all hair types like the Hydrating Melting Mask by Christophe Robin.

Rinse with cold water 

After you’ve rinsed out your conditioner, give your hair a quick cold water rinse. It will seal your hair cuticle (the outermost layer) to give you a great-looking shine. It’s also important to know that very hot water can dry out your hair and cause skin irritation for people with sensitive skin. 

Apply a lightweight serum or natural oils

Everyone knows face serums get a lot done, but hair serums game changers too. They smooth and shine while offering extra protection to your hair. Try Crown Affair’s Hydrating Hair Oil for healthy, wonderfully-scented hair that will look like you just left the salon. 

Beat frizz 

Skip the frizz-promoting bath towel, and dry your tresses with a towel designed specifically for hair instead. Whether you’re ultimately going for an air dry or blow dry, hair towels are the way to go. They’re made from gentle fabrics and they minimize breakage and drying time. For healthier, softer and shinier hair, check out a product like Lisse Luxe Hair Towel by Aquis – it looks great too.
