What is Reverse Shampoo or Reverse Hair Washing?

Reverse shampoo aka reverse hair washing is where you simply reverse the way you wash your hair. Basically, a normal regular routine, the one that you were probably taught growing up goes something like this:

Step 1: Wet hair.
Step 2: Shampoo.
Step 3: Rinse.
Step 4 Condition. (leave on for a good minute or so)
Step 5: Rinse.

And you are done. Get out of the shower and dry up. With reverse shampoo, you just reverse the order.

How To Reverse Shampoo:

Step 1: Wet hair.
Step 2: Condition. (leave on for a good minute or so)
Step 3: Rinse.
Step 4: Shampoo.
Step 5: Rinse.

You just simply use your conditioner BEFORE your shampoo, capiche?

But why would you reverse the order in the first place? Well, conditioner is great. It pretty much makes your hair a whole lot more manageable, plus it seems to lock in moisture and make your strands smooth and silky. The downside? Conditioner, because of it being like a hair moisturizer of sorts, can actually weigh down your hair leaving it rather limp and for some, even greasy. Not. Good.

Now, instead of just ditching conditioner altogether, reversing the order of how you wash your hair allows you to get the same benefits minus the said cons. The main pros: You hair will have more volume and bounce. Plus, you still get to keep your favorite shampoo and conditioner combo. It’s just a matter of putting one before the other.
