What happens when you wash your hair with conditioner

If you’ve never heard of it, you should know that washing your hair with conditioner is a very fashionable trend that’s been popular since the 1980s. In practice, the principle is very simple: you replace your shampoo with conditioner to cleanse your hair, but with an ultra-gentle formula for ultra-soft hair.
Feel like testing the low poo trend? If you have very damaged, very dry hair, if you bleach or color your hair often, if you use styling appliances regularly and if you sometimes straighten your hair, then washing your hair with a conditioner can do you a lot of good. It can allow you to cleanse your hair with a conditioner that’s richer in nutrients and protective actives than a regular shampoo.
You’ve made up your mind, want to get started? Find out 6 things that happen when you wash your hair with conditioner, so you know what you’re getting into:

 

1. Washing hair with conditioner makes your hair healthy, soft and much softer.

2. You get much shinier hair.

3. Conditioner does not foam as much as shampoo because it does not contain the same detergent (and scalp aggressive) surfactants frequently used in shampoos. So you may get the impression that because it foams, your hair isn’t washed properly, or that it feels strange, but you just have to get used to the creamy, protective texture.

4. It often takes several tries to get used to low poo, especially if the scalp is used to producing a lot of sebum to protect itself from aggressive shampoos and heaters. After the first try, it is common to get oily hair after drying. Do not hesitate to persist and space out the shampoos as much as possible until the scalp is completely detoxified from the sulfates and other aggressive components present in traditional shampoos. The second and then the third try should prove more conclusive, and after three shampoos with conditioner, you should regain shiny, light hair.

5. To start, you can alternate a low poo wash with a conditioner wash. As soon as you see that your scalp isn’t as greasy as it used to be, you can settle for a low poo every wash. To do this, simply spread the conditioner over the scalp and stretch it out over the lengths and up to the ends. Gradually add water and massage gently, leave on for a few minutes and then rinse thoroughly, ideally with warm or cold water to tighten the scales and leave hair feeling soft. You won’t need to apply conditioner afterwards, which should save you time.

6. You can use cleansing conditioners that are specifically designed for a gentle low poo wash, like Briogeno Be Gentle Be Kind cleansing conditioner.
If you have dry, dull or damaged hair, don’t hesitate to try the low poo trend: it should help you get softer, more nourished and shiny hair.
