There is a new beauty trend that is peaking my interest. It is called “reverse hair washing,” and it is exactly what it sounds like! The new trend is to wash your hair in the backwards order of what you usually do. Why in the world would you want to do that? Read on.
- Why: So the science behind reverse hair washing is to decrease the residue that is left on your hair from using conditioner. When we shampoo first and then condition, we usually don’t get all of the conditioner out, and when this happens it weighs your hair down. This can cause your hair to be limp and heavy and not hold a curl or volume.
- How you do it: Wet your hair completely. Then work conditioner throughout your hair and let it sit for a few minutes. Next, apply shampoo with the conditioner still in your hair. After lathering up, rinse it out like you normally would.
I have found that this method helps detangle my hair before I am even out of the shower. I wish I would have known about this when I had long hair!
