Benefits Of Reverse Washing Your Hair

What Is Reverse Hair Washing? 

Is the term “reverse hair washing” triggering the adventurous side in you? Instead of the classic shampoo encore after conditioning, reverse hair washing flips the script. Here, we condition first and then rewind with shampoo. Sounds too whacky? Be rest assured; this technique will truly give wings to your tresses.

Benefits Of Reverse Washing Your Hair 

Wish to restore your hair’s natural moisture and lustre? Opt for reverse hair washing and see its benefits for yourself! 

1. Enhanced Volume: Wish to know the science behind how reverse hair washing can add volume to your hair? Well, it’s simple. Reverse washing starts with the application of conditioner, which typically contains hydrating ingredients. These substances coat the hair shaft, adding a protective layer. As a result, fine or limp hair gains extra thickness and volume. The conditioner's weight and texture create an illusion of fuller, more voluminous locks.

We’ve got an excellent option for voluminous hair. Our Coconut conditioner contains Coconut water, ethically sourced from the Philippines, that adds a gorgeous bounce to your hair. In fact, the Mimosa flowers leave a refreshing aroma post rinse. 

2. Reduced Frizz: Can reverse hair wash reduce frizz? Absolutely, yes! Let’s crack the logic.  Frizz is often the result of dry and damaged hair cuticles. The pre-shampoo conditioning in reverse washing creates a barrier, preventing the shampoo from stripping away too much natural oil. This protective layer keeps the cuticles smoother and more aligned, reducing the chances of frizz formation. The end result? Silky, frizz-free strands that are ready to dazzle.

3. Improved Manageability: The conditioner applied before shampooing acts like a shield for your hair. It provides a slick surface that makes it easier to detangle and comb through your strands. This protective shield not only prevents breakage during the detangling process but also allows for easier styling. The result is hair that's not just manageable but also primed for styling.

Our Argan conditioner works very well on dry hair. It contains pure Moroccan Argan oil for nourishing strands deeply. The French Lavender aroma exudes a soothing feeling.

How To Do Reverse Washing Your Hair 

1. Apply Conditioner: Begin the ritual with your chosen conditioner. Take a coin-sized amount of your favorite conditioner and apply to the strands.

2. Detangle The Hair: Gently detangle with a wide-tooth comb – to ensure minimum breakage.

3. Rinse: Rinse off the conditioner thoroughly and prepare the hair for shampoo.

    4. Apply Shampoo: Cue the spotlight for the sulfate-free shampoo. Massage it into your scalp to cleanse the tresses well. If you’re dealing with hair fall, try the reverse hair wash technique with our Onion shampoo. Made with pure Onion bulb oil and no sulfates, it is the best shampoo for hair fall. 

    5. Rinse And Dry: The final act – rinse out the shampoo thoroughly, allowing your hair to air dry or pat it gently with a towel. 


      To sum it up, reverse hair washing can sound like a little experiment for your hair. It's about trying something different and seeing how your locks respond. No need for any fancy routines – just a cool and straightforward way to give your hair some attention. So, give it a shot, see if your hair digs it, and make it a part of your routine if it feels right. It's all about keeping things simple and letting your hair shine in its own way. Enjoy the process!
