Default So - about this rinsing upside down thing...

Am I the only spaz that can't keep conditioner and styling products (also applied upside down to very wet hair) from running into their face and eyes? I tell you, most of that stuff tastes terrible! :P

How the heck do you keep it from dripping onto your face?

OMG you're not the only one, i just tried it today not for any "hair" reason but i just got a tattoo on my back so i just didn't want to get any conditioner or products on my back and let me tell that i've discovered that no poo doesn't taste as good as it smells

i'm looking forward to hear some responses

Yeah, it does run in my face. But I always have a washcloth handy. I'm just used to it now. I'll keep doing it because it's fabulous for root volume.

Haha
I suck at rinsing upside down but I do apply product upside down to quite wet hair and I always get water all up in my ears and nose and stuff. Haven't gotten it in my mouth yet, luckily. 'Bout get it in my eye pretty regularly but I've managed to avoid that for the most part as well.

Next time you have to replace your showerhead purchase one that is on a coil and can be removed from the wall. This helps tremendously

Yup, that does help big time. I forgot to mention that's how I keep it out of my mouth is and when I do rinse upside down. But I quit doing that because it gave me tangles out the wazoo and didn't give anymore volume than applying product upside down and plopping.

I'm slowly getting better at this, but I have noticed that my face has been breaking out a bit (I don't usually break out!) I figure it's from conditioner/products dripping onto my face. Anyone else?

This may sound silly or obvious, but are you all bending at the waist to flip your hair upside down, or just tilting your heads forward? I bend at the waist so my hair doesn't touch my face at all, and I've never noticed water or products dripping onto my face.

I was thinking the same thing. I get som water around the edes of my face and in my ears, but I've yet to have any problem with getting products in my eyes or mouth. But then again I usually make sure my mouth is closed.

I bend at the waist, but I have to lift my head to grab my products. Maybe I will just put them on the floor *behind* me so I can just grab them upside down. Who besides me would make this so complicated Thanks for the suggestions...

I cannot figure out how you guys all do this upside down thing in the shower. I have just mastered the plopping thing so I guess I will just have to keep doing it rightside up in the shower. I cannot figure out if I did that upside down in the shower how I would get dried off at all and then get my products while still upside down - I would look like the hunchbank of notre dame!

I keep my products on the ledge or floor of my shower (depending on which bathroom I'm in) and my towel within reach.

After rinsing upside down (bent at waist so no hair touches my face) I grab my body towel and wrap it around me. Then I apply my products, then step out and take about 2 steps over to my toilet where my tee-shirt is ready for plopping. Once plopped, I stand up.

It sounds like I'm bent over for a really long time, but it's really not that long. What's much worse are the days when I don't take a full shower and just flip my head over the tub to wash my hair. Then I'm upside down a long time and my back really starts to hurt.

That does not sound too bad. I might have to try it. My back has been really bad lately (something about 46!!) and sometimes just being upside to get my products in is a hassle.
