Post Shower Routine

In Educate by El Moreno12 Comments

Get out of the house fast and deal with your hair later.

There are times when your hair is nasty and it demands a wash and you know the full blow dry routine is completely out of the question. Your only option is to leave it wet and come back to it later. In this scenario there are a few techniques that will keep your hair looking great while it’s air drying and post air dry.

In this quick strike video, El Rubio breaks down his method to conquering this likely situation and gives us a sneak preview of a brand new Certified Longhairs product.

If you haven’t read it yet, check out the piece I mentioned in the intro: Bullies and Boys With Long Hair #dotifortheboys.

Do you have any post shower techniques you can share? Drop it in the comments!



  1. This is great but I’m feeling like it works better for straight hair. As a curly-hair guy, is there any other technique I could use to maintain the spiral form of my locks while air dry?

  2. I love your ties guys. Want to get some of them head wraps. Can I call you like when I ordered the ties?

    1. Yo Jon! It’s been a long journey as always, but headwraps will be available early NEXT WEEK!

  3. I’ve been following you guys for a while now and I owe you a big thank you. Growing out my hair has been an epic journey and having guys here has been freaking awesome, I wouldn’t have got through it without you. Thank you from a longhair in Australia. Also man that hair whip gave me chills it was truely a thing of beauty.

    1. Yo Ben! Man, thanks for writing in all the way from Oz! Can’t tell you how stoked we are to read your comment. And you’re welcome of course, it’s part of our mission. Thanks for letting us know!

      So throw down a few whips of your own and send em in for #hairwhipwednesday!

  4. See my issue is that my hair reaches a little below my collar so its not quite able to be tailed up yet. The problem is that if I attempt to air dry the ends start flying all over the place and the ends become uncontrollable. Should I put product in my hair while its wet and then let it dry out? Or is that a bad idea?

    1. What kind of hair do you have and what do you mean by the ends flying out?

      Do you use any leave-in products such as detanglers, leave-in conditioners, oils, serums, or creams? Personally, I do recommend some kind of leave-in treatment. My personal preferences are detangle spray and/or argan oil (applied one drop at a time). Those are for the days that I rinse only or co-wash. The times I shampoo (around 1x/week), I use a smoothing balm that I blow dry in, because that particular product is heat activated.

      If I were to not use any leave-in products, my mass of fine hair is prone to more tangles and increased breakage, leading to a considerable amount of split ends.

    2. Yo Dustin! Well, Jason pretty much nailed it in his reply. He mentioned a detangle spray and/or argan oil, which I also love. And there are other products designed to apply wet as you’ve described. It just depends on what you’re using.

      We’re working on our own hair serum right now that sounds like it will be ideal for your situation. Won’t be out for a little while still (hoping for end of June), so if you need something sooner than later I wouldn’t ask you to wait. In any case, definitely start with some argan oil, if you’re looking for a brand, I’ve used “one ‘n only” brand argan oil and it’s served me well. Sounds like Jason could suggest others.

      Alright boys, lively discussion!
