Over the last few weeks I’ve been trailing the “reverse hair wash” after seeing this feature on Glamour’s beauty news page and seeing numerous tweets on how awesome it makes your hair. The process is simple, wet hair, leave for 5 minutes, rinse out. Shampoo hair, rinse out. Then dry your hair, adding no extra product. The results should be that of a bouncy blow dry as the residue often left by conditioners has been thoroughly rinsed away by the shampoo.
For the past six washes I’ve been trailing this method, and after attempting to style my hair every morning I’ve been resorting to halo/milk braids. No, not just because I’m obsessed with them, but because it’s become so wild, dry and easily knotted I can’t do anything else. Total thumbs down over here.
I’ve tried different conditioners and shampoos to make sure and overall I’m still not sold. However, my hair is naturally on the dryer side so if you have hair that is heavier and gets greasy easily this might be worth giving a go. But unfortunately for me I turned into knot-zilla – someone get me a tangle teezer and hair mask stat!
