Shampoo then condition, a practice touted to be unbreakable in the history of haircare. Ever tried reversing it? it does sound absurd but who’s to stop who and I echo why not. So when I received Kerastase Bain Therapiste and Soin Premier Therapiste via Influenster VoxBox, my interest was piqued multifold.
Aside from the tongue-twisting name, this haircare ensemble is not your typical shampoo and conditioner. As mentioned, you have to use the conditioner first, reason being, it protects over-processed and/or over-damaged hair without the weigh down effect. The shampoo on the other hand is supposed to repair the hair fiber while cleansing. Both products need to be unscrewed and squeezed, a minor inconvenience if you factor in time and usability. The floral fragrance is quite strong which leaves a discernible trace even on the second day (I wash my hair every 2 days). For the record, I have damaged and over-processed hair, no thanks to #womenproblem #255, hair color change or touchups every 3 months. I have experimented washing my hair two ways: traditional (shampoo and conditioner) and reverse (conditioner then shampoo) just to see if there is a significant difference.
Traditional washing did not change my wavy hair’s volume and texture. Reverse washing was a revelation! I have to mention that this shampoo is on the thicker side and the foamiest I have ever tried. It’s like carwash epic foam: once it gets wet and rubbed onto hair strands, I can literally feel like “it’s lifting my hair”, very airy for lack of a better word to describe it. But more than the foam, I was amazed how the reverse process made my hair extra voluminous and silky-looking each and every time I use this tandem. I have already consumed more than half of the tubes and given the impressive outcome, I am going to purchase both next time.

This reverse washing is very interesting! It sounds sooooo weird but very cool that it works!!
I am a huge fan of Kerastase products, and what you are describing here sounds phenomenal! Reverse washing is a revelation, indeed! I really want to try these now, twinsy!
I felt exactly the same way as you about this product, but I miss using a conditioner at the end. In fact, a couple of times I added in a light conditioning after shampooing which probably defeats the purpose 😉 I need to try it one more time as it should be used
This is so awesome, and I am trying to repair my hair and use better products. I will have to try out reverse washing and this brand!
The idea of reverse washing had me like = but it really was a great result!
I've done cowashing and I've loved the way my hair looked but never reverse washing. So interesting.
I am a HUGE fan of Kerstase products. Love.
Condition before shampooing? Say whhhhaaaat?! I love Kerastase, so I'm tempted.
What an interesting concept! I'm always looking for more volume without the frizz!
I love Kerastase, so I'll definitely be picking one of these up! <3
I haven't tried this method of washing yet, but I would totally give these a try. I love their deep conditioners.
