How Often Should I Wash & Condition My Hair?: A Comprehensive Guide Every Hombre Should Follow


Forget limp, lifeless locks – Suavecito isn't just about slicked-backed styles and cool cars. We’re about igniting a hair revolution and empowering Hombres to take charge of their hair health, starting with the basics: washing and conditioning. This guide will be your roadmap to a thriving mane, tailored to your unique hair type and lifestyle.

1. Know Your Hair, Know Yourself

Your hair is as individual as your fingerprint, and Suavecito celebrates that diversity. Understanding your hair type, whether it be straight, wavy, curly, or a glorious mix is the first step to crafting the perfect routine. Don't worry; we'll break it down for you so you can embrace your natural texture with pride and confidence.

2. Washing Wisdom: Finding Your Frequency

Washing your hair is more than just a hygiene routine; it's a ritual of care. While the 2-3 times a week rule is a good starting point, we know there's more to the story. Your lifestyle, products, and environment all influence your optimal washing frequency. Listen to your hair – if it's screaming for a cleanse with excess oil, product buildup, or itchiness, don't ignore its pleas.

Suavecito OG Shampoo is perfect for the everyday Hombre who wants a straightforward, fragrant kind of clean, free of sulfates and parabens (and B.S.). For the more sensitive scalp, Suavecito Daily Shampoo gently works to prevent damage and dryness. The infused Sage Oil stimulates hair growth by improving circulation, while the Chamomile Oil helps heal a dry, itchy scalp. It is your gentle, invigorating partner in crime, ready to keep your hair fresh and healthy.

3. The Conditioner Conundrum

4. Decoding the Signs: When Your Hair Needs TLC

Your hair is constantly sending you signals, and it's crucial to learn its language. Oily roots? Product build-up making your hair feel stiff? Dry, itchy scalp? These are all cries for help! We’ll decipher these signs for different hair types so you know exactly when to step into the shower and give those locks some much-needed love. There’s an easy way to assess your hair and scalp type; It all comes down to oil. Test your hair two days after your last shampooing, pressing a tissue lightly to your hair and scalp.


  • Small oil spot: Pretty standard. We recommend shampooing and conditioning your hair about 2-3 times per week.
  • No oil spot: Looks like you may have some dry scalp and potentially thinning hair. We recommend shampooing and conditioning those locks twice per week. 
  • Big oil spot: You may have an oily scalp. Having thicker and fuller hair tends to retain more oil. We recommend you shampoo and condition that mane at least 3 times per week.

5. Tailor Your Routine: Be A Well-Oiled Mane Machine

Tailoring a hair care routine to your specific needs is key. Explore tips on customizing your routine based on your hair type, lifestyle, and personal preferences. Whether you're a minimalist or enjoy a more elaborate grooming ritual, find a balance that enhances the health and appearance of your hair.


Your hair care journey is a deeply personal adventure, an exploration of self-expression that goes beyond routine. Suavecito is your dedicated guide, encouraging you to view grooming as an ever-evolving canvas of style and individuality. Embrace experimentation, discover what works uniquely for you, and let Suavecito's grooming products be your steadfast allies on this path.
