We’ve all been taught the same steps. Shampoo your hair, rinse, then apply conditioner. But, increasingly, hair-care brands have started to create products that are meant to condition before shampooing.
Thin Hair Types Benefit The Most
Proponents swear that this method adds nourishment to fine hair without weighing it down. It also primes the hair prior to cleansing and provides a longer lasting blow dry.
Other Hair Types Are Helped As Well
Hair that tangles easier, prone to greasiness or is highlighted can also benefit from this hair care strategy as it provides extra hydration. During the winter months, your hair should especially benefit from this practice. This reverse system of hair care added volume across the board for many.
Tips When Conditioning First
- When conditioning first, saturate your hair from root to tip
- Let it set for a minute or two
- Scrub the conditioner well into your hair, such as you would a shampoo. (Think of it as an oil cleanser for your skin)
