There’s no doubt about it, skincare and haircare have always been on the same wavelength. This is why when the Skin Cycling trend came onto the scene, we knew Hair Cycling wouldn’t be far behind.
In case you missed it, Hair Cycling is a routine that focuses on improving the health of your scalp and hair to improve your hairstyle. It involves carefully curating your hair care products to give your style the care it needs. This is done by regularly cycling scalp and hair products and creating a routine of detoxing, restoring, and resting. To get you there, you can follow one of our routines or create one all your own.
How To Hair Cycle:
Hair cycling is a routine nearly everyone can follow and should be created based on how often you wash.
The first wash should centre on detoxifying the hair. For this reason it’s a great idea to start the cycle with a detox like MAXI.WASH to get rid of product build up or mineral accumulation that causes hair to dull over time. From there you can add in your specialised set based on need.
For example, if you have colour-treated hair, bond-building products like EVERLASTING.COLOUR should be a part of your routine to remove mineral buildup, restore hydrogen bonds and replenish proteins while brightening your colour.
Lastly, for ideal styling, work in a volumising, smoothing, or hydrating leave-in conditioning spray or products formulated with fatty acids, antioxidants, and proteins to lock in moisture and natural oils, fight frizz, and repair chemical damage while achieving the style you desire.
Hair Cycling Bundles:
For best results, start with your wash cycle and complete with the right add-on for a well-rounded hair cycle. By using these products together and swapping them as needed, it guarantees a flawless style from start to finish.
Step 1 - Choose your base care with a set of core products.
Step 2 — Follow on with the perfect add-on products to complete the cycle.
Frizz is usually caused by a lack of moisture in the hair, and is usually accompanied by dry or dull locks. To fight frizz and create a smooth style start with this bundle.
HYDRATE-ME.MASQUE — add this masque between your shampoo and conditioner steps to increase hydration and shine.
YOUNG.AGAIN — this leave-in is applied on damp/dry hair to improve conditioning, smoothing and revive dry, brittle hair.

Who Is Hair Cycling For?
If you’ve noticed a lackluster style or an increase in hair or scalp issues, hair cycling might be a great place to start. Many of us get into our routines and forget to swap hair care products. Consider this your official invitation to refresh your routine.
Hair cycling allows you to achieve a specific goal each time you wash your hair. While most follow a detox, restore, rest routine, the process is very individualised depending on your scalp, hair type, and how you wish to style. Above all else, your natural hair texture will be an important factor in the types of products that work best.
