Adding Pre-Poo Treatments

Pre-poo – Preparing your hair prior to shampooing. You do this by adding a moisturizing conditioner or natural oils into the hair . You can do this overnight or 30-40mins before you shampoo. This helps keep the moisture in your hair after you shampoo or clarify. Prepoo-ing helps keep that moisture in. (Hairlista)

If you have asked me a few years ago, I'd even give you a few weeks ago, if I would be adding pre-poo treatments to my regimen. The answer would have been resounding no. After incorporating them into my regimen the last three wash days, I decided they are beneficial. Pre-pooing with oils have made detangling in the shower soooo much easier. Pulling the hair apart in the shower has been much smoother. I also noticed during this weeks wash day that I lost less hair in the shower. 

This weeks wash day, I used a few oil blends on the fly. First I used Talisha's Secret 100% Pure Organic Hair Growth and Repair Oil on my scalp and massaged it in. Next, I grabbed Shea Moisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Complex to add to the length of my hair. That only lasted for one section because I  decided to use the TGIN Argan Replenshing Hair and Body Serum to the rest of my hair. I haven't used this oil in a long time. I am definitely happy with using these oils for my pre-poo treatment. I will also be adding Coconut Oil. I've neglected my coconut oil as of late. Time to pull it out and put it to good use. Can't wait to see what the long term effect of it would be since I am over a year post relaxer.

Do you pre-poo? Have noticed any benefits from it?

  1. Hi Candace, I always pre-poo and my hair thanks me for it. It softens my hair, reduces the negative impacts of cleansing {especially when using sulfates} and helps with hygral fatigue. I love pre-pooing with oil & conditioner. Both are winners.
