So after seeing some of my favourite bloggers brave the Reverse Hair Washing, I thought I would be brave, and give it a go! If you haven’t heard of the trend, reverse hair washing is basically conditioning your hair first, leave it for five minutes and then rinse and shampoo your hair as normal. As a bleached blonde, I am pretty skeptical that this will work. I am prepared for frizz central and crying into my pillow.
My hair is still wet. Hmmm I can’t say I am all impressed by this. My hair feels very dry, straw-like and on the verge of frizzing to high heavens. Maybe things will look better in the morning (as I dry my hair naturally at night). I’ll just quietly sob into my pillow and devise plans for ultimate conditioning in the morning.
For those interested I used a new shampoo and conditioner combo (Or should I call this a conditioner and shampoo combo? EVERYTHING I KNOW IS FALSE) called Unico Intensive Shampoo and Conditioner*. They smell great and been using these on my hair (normally) for the last three weeks or so, so there shouldn’t be any nasty surprises! Stay tuned for a full review in the next fortnight!
Wow ok, my hair feels soft, untangled and shiny?! My hair hasn’t felt shiny in a while. It’s quite voluminous, but not overly so which is what I was worried about. There are some pesky flyaways on top of my head, but these happen daily anyway. I use a little hairspray to smooth them down and my hair do is done for the day.
One of my main concerns for my mane was the prospect of tangly hair. In a normal day it probably needs to be brushed/combed through at least four times to make sure it is still looking good. During my midday once over - reapply lipstick, adjust necklace so it isn’t showing the clasp, hair - not needing a brush? First time ever?

Well I thought that this must be the end of the line for my hair. But no! Still on Day 2 my hair remains soft, manageable and glossy!?! In what crazy world does this even work!
15/05/14 (Day 3)
My hair is starting to lack it’s gloss and shine from the previous two days. So it’s time to repeat the process again. Will it live up to expectations, or will it fall flat? First time lucky, or is this my new routine? Stay tuned for next week when I update you!
