As I was doing my nightly look-at-Pinterest-until-my-eyelids-are-heavy routine I stumbled upon a pin by Refinery29 about washing your hair with conditioner BEFORE shampoo. Now I’m pretty sure everyone is taught since childhood- shampoo THEN conditioner. But the “new” way makes so much sense. There are always those times ever once in a while where you forget to completely rince out all the conditioner and you’re stuck with a greasy gross patch.
So I decided to test this theory and see if the results were true!
- Apply conditioner as normal, let sit for a few minutes (go ahead and shave those legs you have been putting off)
- Apply shampoo OVER conditioner!
- Rinse out as normal.
- More volume √ Yup
- Hair feels softer √ Yes
- Less likely to get oily √ Oh Ya!
