What is Reverse Hair Washing?

Reverse hair washing is a process where you condition, shampoo (wash), then style your hair. It is the reverse process of the traditional hair cleansing process where you shampoo your hair first then condition it.

Benefit + Disadvantage of Reverse Washing Hair

  • The benefit of reverse washing hair is that this process will ensure that your hair is not weighed down from your choice of conditioner.  
  • The disadvantage of reserve washing hair is that the cleansing agents in shampoo can dry out your hair overtime, if it is left on the cuticle of your hair. 

Reverse washing hair is most ideal for people with fine hair. This method makes sure your hair is not weighed down from heavy conditioner. Consider a lightweight conditioner first.
