cold shower

In this weather cold showers are not ideal, but they can benefit your hair way more than a hot shower. So if you want more shine, less frizz and an overall healthier look to your hair, don’t need to go overboard with product, go for a cold shower instead. Simply switch the temperature of the water you’re showering with. To learn about more hair beauty benefits of turning down the dial in your shower, click through to the notes. –– Michelle Rotbart

Shinier Hair

Cold water seals your hair cuticle, which makes your tendrils look smoother and more lustrous.

Less Frizz

Prevent frizzy hair from happening with cooler temperatures. Cold water locks in moisture and doesn’t strip hair of its natural oil. More moisture means less frizz.

Cleaner Scalp

Cold water closes the pores on your scalp, which helps prevent dirt and oil from getting trapped inside. Your scalp will feel much cleaner without over shampooing.



You don’t have to commit to an entirely cold shower for beauty benefits. Simply rinse your hair with cold water after you’re finished cleansing and conditioning.
