Since I was a little girl I wash my hair with cold water. There was something about a cold on my scalp that I felt was good for my hair.
As it turns out, my hunch was correct (not always, so that’s exciting) and in this post, I’ll tell you why you and everyone you know should wash your hair with cold water. If you don’t have the guts, I have got you. Just finish off with a quick rinse with cold.
Anyway, in this post, we’re going to talk about the benefits that come from washing your hair with cold water, plus the best shower cap (if you take a shower in cold water but don’t wet your hair) and perfume your hair. “
All the benefits of washing your hair with cold water
Sidenote: If you haven’t heard of the Wim Hof and his breathing and freezing cold shower, you should check This predicate. I’ve been doing this for the past year and it literally changes life and sets the tone for your day like no other.
So my point is, sometimes I take a freezing cold shower but I don’t wash my hair. On those days I love to use a very specific shower cap which I highly recommend.
There is this shower cap called Cap Shore (A big fan of the cheetah is kind of called The Tortuga.)
So the best thing about this shower cap is that the shower cap has been “reinvented”. It is made with this fabric with nanotechnology that repels water, which means it also keeps moisture out of your hair. They say “it’s not just waterproof, it’s hydrophobic.”
It’s worth noting that my favorite thing about a shower cap is that it dries super quickly. As soon as you get out of the shower, the water is dry. You wouldn’t stand there like a wet rat trying to remove something wet from your head.
This It also won’t catch mold, mildew, or other bacteria. You know how you sometimes take off your shower cap, wrinkle it, and end up smelling like a bad rat-hole in the back of your closet? Well, this shower cap is made of a special anti-bacterial fabric so it won’t happen.
Okay, so let’s get to the nitty gritty.
Benefits of washing your hair with cold water:
♡ Socks hair cuticles giving you the shine we all love.
Preserves your natural oils, again keeps your hair healthy with shine.
Locks in excess moisture and leaves the Herbal Essence looking bouncy.
♡ Makes your hair softer, manageable and resistant to breakage.
♡ Maintains hair color: Hot rinsing can make the color fade faster.
For me, why don’t I wash my hair with cold water (but I like that freeze cold)? I even request it when I have a blast.
So here you have been highlighted, bleached or you just wanted your hair to be shinier, here’s the tip for you.
Like I said, if you don’t have the guts to take a cold shower completely, just finish off a quick cold stroke to reap the benefits.
It is worth noting that I highly recommend some vitamins for hair. Yes, your hair needs vitamins. Big fan of In Common Magic Mist Elixir. The scent is out of this world, I get asked all the time what perfume I wear, but it’s just an amazing dose left on the hair. It strengthens, moisturizes, protects and as I said, it is the best scent in the whole world. I can’t live without it and have probably passed around 10 bottles. You can use it on wet or dry hair. I do both.
If you are not sure about the water quality, I highly recommend a review Raindrops shower filter. The screws fit into basically any shower head and protect your hair and skin by filtering 99% of the minerals, heavy metals, and chlorine in the water. All this shit can cause dryness, changes in texture, hair color, and even hair loss.
So if your hair is dry or brittle, you will be fine with a cold shower and raindrops.
TA-DA !! Anyone and everyone who reads a TSC should try cold rinsing. It is very “us”. I promise you.
+ My favorite hair brush.
++ Just the most perfect shower cap.
