View Full Version : Anybody here do a 'Baptismal Rinse'?

I read about this on naturallycurly, the general idea is after applying your RO (amd waiting a few minutes) instead of rinsing it out completely, you cup your palms and fill them with water then pour it over your hair a few times. This ensures some of the conditioner is left in, and it eradicates the extra step needed when applying a LI in the traditional way.

I've read that it can reduce frizz, I am going to try this on my next wash day. I normally use GVN Smooth as Silk for the RO step, and then Schwarzkopf Gliss for the LI step. When trying this though, I will just be using the GVN. Anything to simplify my routine even more! :)

Does anyone have experience with this?

Ooh, that's a good idea! I can't say I know anything about it but maybe I'll be experimenting with you :)

I've done this with great results. I usually do it more in the winter but does work in the summer too. Please share your results :).

Hehe,when I was on NC it was called "super soaker method " :D
Personally I like the extra cleansing step I get or at least I think I get when I rinse out my conditioner and also,the stream of water helps me get out any knots that are left.
But the method or rinse creates great clumps!

You don't have to cup your palms. Running the handheld shower over it very shortly and lightly instead of full force leaving it over your head also does the trick.

Nope, mostly because I wash upside down so it would be impractical; it is similar to supersoaker but not the same.

Look at the method I explained above. We upside-down wash over here too, and this method works.

I do it sometimes (this morning, in fact), but usually I just put a bit of leave in right side up, and then a bit more upside down. I don't see any particular difference in clumping either way, but maybe that's just due to my technique in general. I add a small bit of curl cream on top of the leave in, and that seems to be what helps clumping the most.
