Shampoo, condition, rinse, repeat. We’ve basically been conditioned (get it?!) to go through this daily hair care routine, whether we’re rushing to get ready after sleeping in or rinsing off after an hour on the elliptical.
But what if we told you that with one simple swap, your hair could look 100 times better?
Conditioning before shampooing, a technique encouraged by TRESemmé’s Beauty-Full Volume line, will invigorate your hair with volume while still leaving it silky smooth. As the website notes, conditioning first softens the hair, while the shampoo after washes away the weight.
As Kérastase’s artistic director Nina Dimachki told Refinery29, if you decide to take on this reversing regimen, make sure to condition from root-to-tip as opposed to the traditional method of starting below the ears. You don’t have to worry about getting greasy, because the shampoo will wash away the excess oils.
Dimachki also told Refinery29 that this routine will make your blowout last longer, aka no worries about humidity frizzing up that perfect ’do the second you leave the house.
Next time you hop in the shower and reach for the shampoo, think twice and grab your conditioner instead. This may just be the secret to flawless hair!
