I've started doing it lately and I think it keeps my hair cleaner longer. To be honest, I don't wash my hair very often and I just use dry shampoos ( lies! I'm ghetto , its baby powder ), and I can't tell if my hair is actually cleaner or I'm just seeign what I wanna see.
So, do you think it works or its just the shampoo people getting us to buy more shampoo?
lol I don't really believe that stuff. remember that someone may pile shampoo into their hair the first time and scrub it in super well. this is what I do:
i shower everyday, but I wash my hair once every 2 days.
i use shampoo once a week, because apparently using it too much isn't that great for the hair. so every other time I use conditioner only. I apply the conditioner, and while its soaking into my scalp I wash my body. then when I'm done I rinse it out.
what you do out of the shower for your hair is important too. combing it with a wide toothed comb is fantastic for hair follicle stimulation. I also use a variety of oils such as almond, argan or moroccan oil to treat the hair. its also great if your trying to grow it out and get that natural shine=] hope that helps.
I follow JustBanANNAz's routine. I will shampoo twice if my hair is really dirty or gross, otherwise I just condition it after. Sometimes if my hair gets dirty through the week I will co-wash it (with conditioner) rinse, and then condition again and leave about 10% of the conditioner in the 2nd time (you only have to buy 1/2 as much leave-in conditioner if you leave conditioner in when you rinse)
When they say "repeat" I take that to mean, wash our hair again the next time it needs to be washed lol. I don't need to wash my hair twice, it will just dry it out. I just spend more time massaging the shampoo in my hair before I rinse for a deeper clean
I thought lather rinse repeat is the only way one is going to get clean hair? I definently have to because my hair is too think and oily not to or it'll stink. I probably wash like four-five times, two comb outs and a deep condition.
Idk, I have really dry, kinky, curly hair. So unless its a cleansing conditioner, I definitely won't repeat a wash. I usually don't even use shampoo. I get all hippie and shit and use apple cider vinegar first then clay hair wash. Shampoo, even the sulfate free ones, just dried my hair out and made me get lots of tangles. I have one gentle shampoo that is tolerable but even that one gives me some tangles.
Id say it seems like a marketing technique. Unless you have a shit ton of gunk on your hair, or extremely oily hair, I don't see a purpose for that. Perhaps if you swim a lot and have oily hair, you want to make sure the chlorine is out. But I'm no professional :)
