Hair Cycling: The New Skincare-Inspired Method To Optimize Your Hair Health and Shine

Plus tips from celebrity stylists on achieving the best results.

Cycling, a term that has expanded from outdoor activities to skincare, now includes a new addition: hair cycling. This method involves regularly changing your haircare products, from shampoos to conditioners, to optimize all textures’ health and shine. It’s a holistic approach to achieving a luscious, sexy look beyond the TikTok trend. 

Celebrity hairstylist Cynthia Alvarez emphasizes the benefits of hair cycling, stating in a press release, “Cycling through different products in your routine helps prevent product buildup, allows you to address different needs such as dryness or breakage, and works to nourish your scalp and hair follicles.” 

So, where do you start? Biolage brand advisor and stylist Sunnie Brook advises, “[Assess] your hair needs, consider outside factors, choose your core products, then adjust as needed,” relaying how intimate and thoughtful our relationship with our locks can be.

Although hair cycling may seem like another fad, it’s a unique journey for everyone. Alvarez recommends to, “Ask yourself a few questions. For example, my scalp is feeling oily, but why are the ends dry? If so, you will want to pre-treat your scalp with a treatment that exfoliates and clarifies the scalp from buildup and excess oil.” 

@kevin.murphyofficial @ditigoradia’s hair cycling routine incorporates MAXI.WASH + HYDRATE-ME.MASQUE on her first cycle with the SMOOTH.AGAIN wash + rinse on the second cycle. “After using these for a month now, I’ve seen my scalp + hair get noticeably healthier” #KMhaircycling #lovekm #mykmregimen #kevinmurphy ♬ original sound – KEVIN.MURPHY

Nurturing your hair is similar to riding a bike. It might feel wobbly at first, but with patience, practice, and the right techniques, you’ll find your balance, and it will be smooth sailing from there. This journey is about progress, not perfection.
