そこで is used when B indicates an action (to be) taken because of the situation presented in A.

Basically, B is an action to solve or improve A. That is, the action in B must be controllable, i.e involves volition or will.

Examples

  • った。そこで、ることにした。
    • My phone rang, so the volitional action I took to alleviate the situation was leaving.
  • もうすぐ。そこで、プレゼントをりたいけど、どんながいいだろう。
    • It’s almost our anniversary, so the volitional action I’m wanting to take is buying a present.

Remember, there are two requirements for using そこで: verb in B is volitional action in B solves/improves the situation in A.

In シャワーをびた。それで、がすっきりした, the verb isn't volitional, and showering isn’t a problem that can be helped by your head clearing.

Consider using それで.
