The method is very simple: It’s just like a regular wash but in a reverse order. Firstly, you need to apply your conditioner and then shampoo. Reverse hair washing works for pretty much all hair types, but the ones who lack in volume and suffer from dryness and frizz will benefit the most.

If your hair limp and oily or dry and damaged, you might consider trying this trick. Also, if you use a lot of hair products, it might help you to clean it better afterword to prevent the product build-up.

Benefits of the reverse hair washing:

    • it will stop the hair from getting greasy too fast whilst keeping the volume;
    • it provides nourishment to the hair and makes it shinier;
    • it helps to get rid of frizz and fly-aways;

Why you should try this method.

Normally, you would use shampoo first and then conditioner in your hair. But it may not be the best way, not for everyone, but for most hair types. When you use shampoo, you remove dirt and grease but at the same time, you also remove your hair’s natural oils. To prevent it becoming dry, you then apply conditioner, which provides your hair with ‘fake oils’.

But when you apply conditioner first, you put a protective shield over your hair and when you proceed with shampoo, the harsh cleansers in the product won’t penetrate as deep, so you’ll wash away less of your natural oils. This method provides a gentler cleanse.
