Earlier this year I blogged about the idea of reverse washing your hair – simply put, you condition and then shampoo your hair. I saw amazing results, and at the time of writing my post I had only tried it twice, but my hair was left feeling lighter, softer and took less time to dry. Now that was a few months ago, it is time for an update.
I am surprised to say that this still works for me. Out of six hair washes, I will typically do one the traditional way (shampoo then condition) and the other five times I stick to reverse hair washing. I do it the traditional way when my hair is perhaps a little dryer than usual and needs some extra conditioning. I have noticed some great improvements to my hair:
- Being in a much better condition – in fact I got away with only having two hair cuts since April – and the second one was just a week ago.
- Growing at a great rate.
- More manageable.
- Takes less time to blow dry.
- Able to use any shampoo and conditioner, I no longer have to stick to one brand.
I have also used this method whilst we were in Florida, where my hair was exposed to the sun and 35C daily, not to mention a ton of chlorine. I am definitely a convert to reverse washing my hair, and I will continue to do so.
If you tried reverse washing your hair, has it stuck with you?
