You might’ve heard that rinsing your hair with cold water after shampooing and conditioning helps to close the cuticle and seal in moisture from the conditioner, giving you healthier-looking hair. Don’t know about you, but that seems like too much effort when there are so many products on the market designed to give your locks some shine.

However, the Inverse Hair Conditioning System takes that principle and uses the power of ice to give you naturally gorgeous, picture-ready hair – no cold shower required. At the risk of sounding like an infomercial, it helps bring you stronger, shinier, healthier and more manageable hair with no chemicals, no heat, no cords, no mess,

After testing it for one week, I’m happy to say that it lives up to its claims. My hair was softer and shinier. One thing I didn’t expect (but was very excited about) was that it helped maintain my colour. I have a challenging balayage (a.k.a. brass central). I tone it myself and usually need to touch up bi-weekly, but after using the inverse, the brass was kept at bay for an extra week. That alone makes this product a must in my hair care arsenal.
