What comes 1st: shampoo or facial cleanser?

shampoo cleanser What comes 1st:  shampoo or facial cleanser?

I could be too presumptuous here but I’m guessing most people shampoo their hair and wash their face during a shower. Well, at least a couple of people I know do. So which should come first? Should we shampoo our hair first or should we wash our face first? And is there a difference?

The reason why I pose this question is because I’ve been thinking about this process lately during my shower.

On average, I color or highlight my hair only about two to three times a year. One thing is cost, but the other is I’m not so keen to subject my hair to too much harsh chemical treatments.

I recently switched to Phytocedrat Sebo-Regulating Shampoo and for awhile now, I haven’t had to resort to using dry shampoo to keep my hair looking less greasy. I have seen this product around for some time already but haven’t been inspired to test it out because I never had good experience with shampoos containing botanical ingredients. Well, shampoos that do not foam usually doesn’t work for my extremely greasy scalp because mine is the sort that produce sebum almost IMMEDIATELY after washing. So you can imagine my trauma all these years; not to mention the amount of dry shampoo which I have been inhaling!

“If done correctly, it is actually better than towelling dry or just letting your hair dry naturally.” According to a feature titled “Tress Distress” dated 21 Nov in Urban under The Straits Times, the consistent heat applied in the same direction smoothens hair cuticles and gives you shiny hair. It also sets hair in place and seals in moisture.
