Conditioner Right On Top Of Shampoo Lather?!?

msgibletmsgiblet Posts: 5,825Registered Users
I was reading hair tips on the internet and on one site it said for very fine or very delicate hair, that right before you're ready to rinse out your shampoo, put your conditioner right on top of your shampoo lather and then rinse. Says you will still get the benefits of the conditioner without the problem of being too weighed down. Sounds interesting -- something I've never even thought of. I've put my conditioner on first and then shampoo'd, but not the other way around. Anyone ever hear of this? Does anyone do this? Thoughts?

    Never tried it. I've heard your way before and that makes sense. But this new way doesn't make sense to me. It seems like it would make it harder to wash out the shampoo which increases the risk that you will have some of it stay on your hair, which can cause damage. I would think that if conditioner is causing too much of a weigh down, then switch to a lighter conditioner.

    But that's my 2 cents. Would love to hear others experiences too.

    That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

    I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

    I have not heard of this either. I have put in conditioner and then put shampoo right on top of that - did my scrubbing, rinsed and then conditioned.

    I haven't done it quite that way but in the mornings if I'm running a bit late I will put shampoo on and do my scrubbing then put in conditioner and then rinse it all out at once. I've not ever noticed anything better or worse about it other than it saves me a few minutes of rinsing two times.

    So, you haven't noticed whether or not it gave you lighter conditioning & no weight? I have a friend who has the finest, most delicate hair I've ever seen - it's like a bird. She can't use conditioner at all because her wispy hair will be plastered right to her head, so I'm curious as to whether this might be something that might work for her.

    I do like the fact that it saves times -- might have to try it myself for that reason alone.:wink:

    At the time I was not following a CG routine of any kind so I was using a cone laden shampoo and condish and not conditioning every day because it would get weighed down, Thinking back about it it didn't seem to be as weighed down as it was when I would shampoo and then condish on days I had more time. Maybe I should try it a couple times this week since going CG and see what kind of results I get.

    When you get up at 5:30 am you'll do whatever you can to save time!! :laughing7:

    I've done this before, I dont remember what I used, but it seemed to work okay. It burned my eyes though, i think the shampoo and the conditioner react in someway that bothers my eyes.
