Pre-poo is a vital step in your hair care regimen, and could be the key to beating dry hair and increase moisture and it’s something you shouldn’t skip if you like myself have highly softer hair.
Let’s start by the basic. What does pre-poo means?
→ Pre-poo=pre shampoo. Simple!
Applying oils and/or conditioners to the hair before shampooing. Often times a heat source is used to allow the oils and/or conditioners to penetrate the hair and impart moisture.
It is great for natural dry, dull or damaged hair.
Overall, it is usually performed to help the hair maintain necessary moisture during the drying shampoo process.
Some people pre-poo with oils, conditioners, honey, or a combination. I like to pre-poo with a combination of olive oil and coconut oil or avocado oil. The benefits are undeniable!
TIPS: Can also be applied directly onto hair ends.
After a pre-poo treatment you should notice soft hair ends shiny ones too. Your hair and scalp will be ever so grateful for helping restore some moisture and restorative oils that have been lacking. Making pre-poo a part of your regular routine will show great improvements to your hair’s texture and sheen.
∴ Why I love it?
This technique will condition your strands before applying a shampoo which can dry your hair out. I personally like using oil, specifically coconut oil the day before my wash day. When I am short in time, I limit it to a 30min treatment.
∴ Why coconut oil?
It’s no secret that coconut oil is a amazing oil for natural hair. It nourishes, conditions, repairs and provides shine to natural hair textures.
Coconut milks does everything that coconut oil does. The only difference is it’s milk and is much lighter for people do not enjoy their hair being too oily. It is a much lighter option from this viscous oily cousin, making it a more ideal detangle for the curliest hair types.
