Last month, it was Reverse Washing. And while so many of my blogger friends are having the best hair days ever, courtesy of fewer traces of conditioner left behind, I still say this. But what about a pre-shampoo treatment?
You could just throw a conditioner on your hair before shampooing but, in my experience, this won't work as well. Most conditioners are very thick so unless applied on wet hair it risks a tub of expensive hair stuff becoming a single serving. When I first saw Living Proof's Timeless Pre-Shampoo Treatment, which promises to fortify hair while locking in color pre-wash, I presumed it would be very similar to one of their existing conditioners or treatments. While they all share ingredients, including the signature OFPMA, the formulas were surprisingly different, so I decided to give it a go.
Let's keep in mind I have dry, processed blonde hair, so conditioners are my best friends. I can't condition my hair enough. If oily-haired women love reverse washing, a good pre-cleansing treatment is heaven for those of us with processed or dry hair. I've been using Living Proof's Timeless, a pre-shampoo treatment that promises to fortify hair while locking in color.
It doesn't leave hair too heavy, contains a decent amount of OFPMA and a little goes a long way. The biggest difference I'm seeing when I use this is in hair manageability. I'm air drying my hair and this gives me beautiful results. If I blow dry, my hair is even better. My style lasts longer and my hair stays clean for an extra day. I love this (I'm on my second bottle now).
Grab it from Ulta for $10/$26. Let me know what you think if you've already tried it. I can't believe how much I love it.
