The Everyday Shower Routine
Everyone knows that the best showers start out even before you get in the shower. Dry brushing, brushing your hair, and oiling your scalp are all great ways to prep for a shower, but not entirely necessary for an everyday shower routine. Obviously your shower can have as many or as few steps as possible, but the steps below are a great place to start.
Best Order for Hair Care and Body Care Products in the Shower:
Step 1: Shampoo
Obviously not every day is a hair wash day, but on the days that are you want to be sure to start your shower off with shampoo. Being a curly girl, I love using three or four pumps of the Saltair Curl Defining Shampoo and creating a nice lather in my hands before working it through my hair. You want to be sure to scrub for around a minute, focusing on the scalp and the nape of your neck. This will ensure that you’re cleaning up excess oil while preventing product buildup.
Step 2: Conditioner
Next up is conditioner. You want to focus this on the ends of your hair while working it up to the middle of the hair shaft. I love the texture of the Curl Defining Conditioner, it’s so creamy and easy to work through hair, so I’ll use three pumps of this focusing on the ends of my hair. You could leave this on while you shave, but it’s really not necessary as conditioner works as soon as it coats the hair.
Step 3: Body Wash
Once you’ve rinsed the conditioner out of your hair, it’s time for body wash. It is important to cleanse your body after using shampoo and conditioner because it will help to reduce potential clogged pores and breakouts. I personally put Saltair’s Exotic Pulp Body Wash or Pacific Pear Body Wash on the Saltair Body Scrubber to exfoliate and cleanse at the same time.
Step 4: Face Wash
Wrap up the perfect shower by double cleansing your face. If you enjoy a piping hot shower, be sure to let the water cool before washing your face or opt for using the sink for this step.
