Here comes the science!

Doesn't "trend" mean more than two bloggers are doing it?

Everything I've ever believed has been a lie!!!
 
2014-02-28 07:49:38 PM  
In other news, a "trend" can now be set by two bloggers discussing it.

Also, I dunno about the frou frou hair crap they use, but my shampoo is specifically designed to clean my hair of grease and oils- y'know, the kind of thing that conditioner leaves in to make your hair soft and shiny. Does not compute.

Meh, I don't use either. A little Dr Bronner's if particually dirty. But plain water usually works just fine

Hair care article: "My hair looks better than it has in almost forever."

Science: So, is that, maybe, 90% of forever, or more like forever minus 13, or what, and how long is that, exactly?

Clearly these bloggers do not have to be at the gym in 26 minutes.  I use shampoo and conditioner all in one and I do not repeat.

Given what the blogette's hair looks like in that likely posed and retouched photo (i.e that is the best get hair is likely to look) the endorsed method isn't working.

Perhaps, and this is just an observation, if bleach-blonde babe from the farking article did not bleach her otherwise dark hair to the color and texture of beaten straw, this entire exercise would be a moot point.
Of course this article is from the UK, where their cuisine, dental practices and health care are all questionable, so.....

I had an ex who ordered a whole case of expensive river mud shampoo. Seriously, she advocated washing your hair with mud.

Of course, I scoured my taint the cleanest it's ever been with glacial silt and 40 degree water so maybe there's something to that.

Taint. Glacial silt.

Hair color lasts longer with said method as we'll.
 
2014-02-28 08:14:57 PM  
I used to use Pantene. I really liked it.

Best results, however, have been with apple cider vinegar and baking soda. Hair has a ton of volume, and a very nice soft feeling to it.

Dragonflew: Doesn't "trend" mean more than two bloggers are doing it?

TFA:  'I've been doing it for about a week now,' she writes. 'And my hair looks better than it has in almost forever.'


And "about a week now...almost forever"  counts right up there with the most respected scientific breakthrough research.
 
2014-02-28 08:19:44 PM  
My wife just washes with hot water. She's been doing it for a while and her hair looks awesome. The first few weeks were pretty gnarly but once her hair oil balanced out to what it should be it was all good.

If it's so great, why does her hair look all nasty and stringy? I wonder how it looked before.
 
2014-02-28 08:30:01 PM  
You could also go with the "no poo" method.  Google it and you'll find a lot of information but the basic idea is to stop using shampoo completely.

Not to mention her hair kinda looks like shiat. I'm not sure I want hair advice from someone who thinks that is their hair looking better than before.

Why don't you just dump your conditioner down the drain then? Same result. I guarantee you, my curls would not do well washing them in reverse.

Does your scalp feel clean after co-washing? I find my scalp feels dirty if I skip a shampoo and just use conditioner but I have fine, curly hair. It's all chopped off right now (I could make it look like Eraserhead if I wanted to) so it doesn't matter much right now but when I grow it back, I don't want thirsty or dirty curls.

2014-02-28 08:47:49 PM  
Well, I used to have long hair, and since mine is not of the extremely fine, going to be bald at 30 sort, it did not work that way for me. If I used the conditioner first, and then put shampoo, I wouldn't have been able to comb it. If I omitted the conditioner, I wouldn't have been able to comb it. I needed to shampoo first, and then apply conditioner. If the humidity is particularly bad (lived in a very humid place), I would put a tiny bit of conditioner in the hair after the shower as well.

I have fine, straight hair and it gets lank and oily if I don't shampoo.  Best it ever looks is when I use baby shampoo, then regular shampoo, then a conditioner.

I've gone shampoo free for almost 3 years.  I just use hot water, and run my hands through it (or maybe a comb when it's longer) to distribute everything more evenly.

Never did use conditioner.  It just weighs my hair down and makes it look awful.

I suppose if I were somewhere where actual dirt was getting in my hair (ie. a dusty climate), then I might need to do more.  Dr. Bronner's is an interesting, minty idea.  Plus, the bottle is amusing reading, at least for a few minutes.

I have very fine blonde hair, and I've found that I do best using ONLY CONDITIONER.

/Tresemme Moisture Rich Conditioner used to be perfect for this but then they changed their formula to be cheap and awful. FML.
 
2014-02-28 08:57:16 PM  
FTA: The age-old hair mantra of lather, rinse, repeat, may be on the out as more and more women are embracing 'reverse washing' - using conditioner before shampoo.

So.. you repeat, than rinse, than lather?  Does the author think lather = shampoo, and rinse = conditioner?  This sentence makes me want to take her computer away.

/cut to Family Guy-esque video of someone kicking in her door, grabbing her MBP, and breaking it on the floor.
