Have you been washing your hair wrong for your entire life?

Apparently, there's a growing new trend of people using conditioner FIRST and shampoo second.

The theory is that the conditioner softens and untangles your hair.  Then you shampoo lightly afterward to wash away the heaviness of the conditioner and clean your hair without eliminating all of the moisture or taking away the shininess.

This might not work for all hair, though.  A website called TrueBeauty.com says it won't work if you have thicker or drier hair . . . for those types of hair, you should actually shampoo and condition in the boring old order.
