    Default Upside down washing makes curls better?

    It is true that washing curly hair upside down help the hair curl better from roots?

    Where did you get that from? I strongly doubt it.

    I think styling upside down is better, for scrunching products in and the like, but even that is personal preference.

    I would pay it no mind.

    Where did you hear it BTW?

    I read it on a hair care website. I suppose it was written at the fact you can squish to condish your hair better when its upside down, in order to scrunch and moisturize curls better. Especially at the nape hair.

    Oh I didn't think of STC.

    I always wash my hair upside down / separate from my body.

    I wouldn't know what it would be under different conditions.

    You could give it a go. If you have a handheld showerhead in your tub, you could try.

    Yeah I saw this in a curly hair video the other day. I wondered about that, too.

    It definitely makes my waves more defined, so maybe it isn't completely bogus hahaha.

    But then, it also makes me lose more hair for some reason.

    Some people find that it clumps their curls wrong and they wind up with frizzy hair when they flip it back the right way.

    Yes I definitely get "knots" sometimes from doing that. And at some point you have to flip it over!!!

    If I use my HE Hello Hydration as my 2nd conditioner, I don't get that at all, so it depends on the conditioner I put into my hair somehow. It's... weird. But there you go.

    For some people, it does. For others, it improves definition (which is not the same thing as increasing curl). For others, it helps distribute product evenly. For yet others, it reduces the amount of conditioner 'lost' from the canopy during partial rinsing. (And countless other benefits, no doubt.)

    And for some, it leaves them with a frizzy, tangled mess, and they never do it.

    Your mileage may vary.

    Personally, I flip my head a few times in the shower to try to ensure all my hair is treated equally, and do the same when applying product. (If I do it all upside down, the back of my canopy tends to get less.) I diffuse mostly upside down because I get more root lift that way.

    For me, absolutely KNOT.





    Because I would get a lot of knots.
