Healthy hair is a crucial part of our overall appearance and confidence, and we are always on the lookout for the latest haircare trends and tips to achieve luscious locks. One such trend that has gained popularity in recent years is hair cycling, which involves periodically changing your hair care routine to maximise and replenish vitamins without overloading on the same nutrients. But is this just another haircare fad, or is there science behind it?
We spoke to Oscar Cullinan, two-time Australian Hairdresser of the Year and founder of WILDE by Oscar luxury haircare line, to find out more about the benefits of hair cycling. According to Cullinan, hair cycling is an essential practice to maintain healthy, vibrant hair. "By changing your routine periodically, you can ensure that your hair is getting the maximum benefits from the products you use," he says.
The idea behind hair cycling is that over time, our hair can become immune to the same ingredients in our hair care products, resulting in less effective products. By changing our routine and exposing our hair to new vitamins and nutrients, we can prevent our hair from becoming dull and lifeless. Furthermore, hair cycling can help us avoid overloading on the same nutrients, which can lead to negative side effects like acne or digestive problems.
But how can we incorporate hair cycling into our hair care routine? Cullinan suggests alternating between different product lines that are tailored to our hair type, such as WILDE by Oscar's Moisture Restore line for those with fine or limp , and the Protein Revive range for those with chemically treated, coloured or damaged hair. By doing so, we can ensure that our hair is getting the specific nutrients it needs.
In addition to hair cycling, Cullinan stresses the importance of using high-quality, natural ingredients in our hair care routine. "Your hair deserves the best, and that means using products that are free from harmful chemicals and full of nourishing ingredients," he advises. This is why WILDE by Oscar's hair care products are made with natural, plant-based ingredients that are gentle on your hair and scalp.
Finally, Cullinan reminds us to invest in our hair as it is an essential part of our overall health and well-being. "Your hair is your best accessory, and it's always with you. Treat it with the care and attention it deserves," he says. By incorporating hair cycling into our hair care routine and using high-quality, natural ingredients like those in WILDE by Oscar's hair care products, we can achieve healthy, vibrant hair that makes us feel confident and beautiful.
