    Default Conditioning and Backne

    I spent a lot of time with spots on my back, which is horrid and easy to forget about when they can't be seen... until the summer comes... eeek.

    Someone mentioned to me that it could be from the conditioner running down my back since I rinse it out after I've finished washing.

    I tried washing my back last, but my old habits usually make me forget, so I haven't been able to tell if it's a solution or not.

    Does anyone else think the conditioner would cause this? I've tried all sorts of brands over the years and always end up with the spots.

    I doubt conditioner would be the cause, it might aggravate the situation if you have sensitive skin though.

    You could try a vinegar rinse after/instead of conditioner. It would rinse the last bit of conditioner away and is good for your skin.

    I don't think it's the conditioner, but anything is possible (as my body taught me).
    Lean your head to the front while you condition, it won't touch your back. I always washed my hair like that, it didn't even occur to me to wash it standing up straight because it was always long and would tangle all over me xD

    I always wash my hair first thing in the shower and then I'll get out, wrap it up in a turbi-towel, and get back in to wash the rest of me. This has helped a great deal with the backne for me. It also keeps my hair out of my way while I wash the rest of me.

    Well, how about you clip it after it's conditioned, wash your back, then lean forward to rinse it al out? It might work.

    To prevent this with myself...I rinse leaned a little to the side so that my hair is sort hanging past my shoulder.

    This is what I do. I keep a giant clip in the shower, so as soon as I finish my hair, I clip it up out of the way, then wash my body.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

    It looks to me like those of use who suffer from it believe it can be related to the conditioners. While those who doubt it, probably don't have the problem in the first place! (I am guessing though)

    I've started vinegar rinsing this morning, so I'll see how that goes. I'll also clip it up, but I have a long-standing routine of rinsing my hair as the very last thing I do.

    Anyway, I'm planning to try the oil cleansing method all over soon, so my routine will be changing considerably. Will be sure to try and keep the conditioner off my back from now onwards.
