1. Should I start with the body or the hair?

The experts advise starting with the hair, especially if you use a treatment shampoo, even though there are no real rules. In fact, rebalancing or anti-dandruff formulas need to be exposed to the scalp for two to three minutes in order to work. You can use this time to wash and rinse your body.

The same product should not be used on the body and on the hair because this can lead to imbalances, such as greasy hair and dry skin.

2. What are the best products to use for my skin and hair?

It's best to use separate products for your hair and body to avoid imbalances. For your hair, choose a product that addresses your specific needs, such as anti-dandruff or a moisturizing shampoo.

For your body, opt for a product that is gentle and moisturizing, such as a superfatted soap.

3. What is the ideal duration and temperature for a shower?

The pros recommend 3 minutes of soaping. If you think that's a bit short, you can stay up to 10 minutes. And as for temperature, avoid exceeding 37°C to avoid creating a thermal shock that could cause severe dehydration.

4. What is a superfatted soap and who is it for?

A superfatted soap is a type of bar or gel that is enriched with glycerin, shea butter or oils, which intensely nourish the skin as soon as they are applied. They are mainly for very dry skin because it also protects the skin from very hard water and leaves a nourishing and protective film.

5. Does a product that lathers a lot wash better?

This is a common misconception that is hard to dispel! The amount of foam depends on the surfactants used. Sodium laureth sulfate, which is often found, lathers a lot but is not gentle on the skin! Milder surfactants like sodium lauroyl methyl isethionate from coconut lathers less but is just as effective in terms of skin cleanliness.

6. Should scrubs be applied to wet skin?

It is preferable because moistening the skin allows the dead cells to detach more easily at the time of exfoliation, without risk of irritation.

7. How to choose between shower gel and soap?

Today you will find the same benefits in both textures. However, you should know that solid soaps often contain fewer ingredients. Shower gels, on the other hand, are often favored by the most sensitive skins because they are less detergent, and therefore softer with their hydrolipidic film.

8. Is the shower flower a good ally?

While it transforms shower gel into a dense, creamy lather and provides your skin with daily micro-exfoliation, dead cells tend to stick to it, which can quickly turn it into a veritable nest of bacteria...

9. Is it better to shower at night or in the morning?

In the morning, a shower is invigorating and can help wake you up, while a night-time shower can help you relax and prepare for a good night's sleep. Pick the best time for you!

10. What should I do after a shower?

It's important to moisturize after each shower to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Use a moisturizer that suits your skin type, and always apply it while your skin is still damp to lock in the moisture.

By incorporating these tips into your shower routine, you'll be on your way to achieving healthy, radiant hair and skin. Happy showering!
