If you've ever experienced an itchy scalp, frizz, breakage, or hair loss while using hair care products, you might be interested in learning about the benefits of hair cycling.

Hair cycling minimizes irritation to the scalp and hair from your products.

Who Should try hair cycling?

The short answer is anyone. Hair cycling will work for anyone who would like to improve their scalp and hair health. In terms of risks, there really are none. Just remember to not overdo it.

It can be tempting to form a 20-step hair routine with every product on TikTok. But that can be more damaging to your hair and weigh you down your hair. So instead, find a go-to shower and hair care routine and stick to it.

How To Hair Cycle

Figure out your hair type and texture, and take into consideration your environment (think: is it cold, dry, humid, does it rain all day?) Then, create a schedule that works for you (and that you can stick to) and decide which days you will cleanse, clarify conditions, and mask. 


It may also take a few weeks to nail the perfect routine that works, so you can expect trial and error. However, finding the products you love that work for your hair and your lifestyle is important.


Because the benefits will start rolling in once you establish what's right for you. It's also worth noting that there's a fine line between washing your hair too much and not washing it enough. The benefits of hair cycling.

  3. Condition with a hydrating conditioner.
  4. Finish off with a leave-in conditioner to lock in moisture and repair split ends.

SECOND WASH:

  1. Double-cleanse with your sulfate-free shampoo.
  2. Use a hair conditioner to lock moisture back into each strand.
  3. Massage in a leave-in conditioner to eliminate heat damage, smooth frizz, and prevent any breakage caused by aggressive brushing, pulling your hair back too tightly, overusing heat tools, and/or sleeping on wet hair.
