Are You Washing Your Hair All Wrong? This Trick Could Transform Your Locks

Hair Washing

We’ve been told to wash our hair the same way for donkey’s years; get the shampoo, (lather, rinse and repeat) and then follow with conditioner. However now, it has come to our attention that we might just be getting the whole process backwards.

According to Refinery29, hair companies are now saying we should do the opposite – condition before you shampoo – so that your locks and scalp stay in the best condition possible. “Conditioning before you shampoo is great for adding nourishment to fine hair without weighing it down,” said Nina Dimachki, artistic director for K?rastase. “It also promotes a longer lasting blowdry and primes the hair before cleansing, allowing shampoo to distribute easier and more evenly.”

Those with finer hair are said to really benefit from swapping their hair-washing technique, but it should improve the mane condition for everyone who does this.

?Hair that is highlighted, tangles easily after shampooing, or is prone to greasiness is also a prime candidate for a pre-shampoo conditioner,? added Dimachki.

And this doesn’t mean who have to overhaul your current routine; it’s a simple matter of just changing up what you do. ?Just take your normal shampoo and conditioner (or a mask), and reverse the order. If your hair is thick or coarse, you may benefit from a condition-shampoo-condition regimen,? she continued.

However, before you go rushing to try this one out, there are some best practices to keep in mind if you’re going to start this regimen. Instead of just using the conditioner on the ends of your hair, as most normally would, Dimachki advises youto saturate all your hair from root-to-tip if you’re conditioning before you cleanse. “You will be cleansing it after, so your hair won’t be weighed down or oily,” she explained. If you typically lather up twice, she says to scrub the conditioner into your hair like a shampoo instead of simply shampooing twice.

We think this sounds so interesting, and we can’t wait to give it a go to see the results? Would you try this, or have you done so before?
