DIY Recipes for PrePoo

In case you didn’t know ‘prepoo’ (short for pre shampoo), is very beneficial for the hair. It doesn’t matter if your hair is natural (unpermed/unrelaxed), relaxed/chemically processed or colored/bleached. It’ll do your hair a lot of good!!

Wondering what exactly this is?

It is the process of applying conditioning treatments such as conditioners, humectants and/or oils on hair prior to washing (either shampoo or cowash). It leaves hair softer, detangled, easy to manage, more moisturized and hydrated. This isn’t deep conditioning…I repeat…this isn’t deep conditioning! The conditioner used doesn’t and isn’t made to penetrate as deeply as the deep conditioner/treatment/masque.

So yes, you would be using ordinary (not expensive)conditioner and no! you can’t use a deep conditioner/masque for the process, rather use it after the process.

Adding this to your hair regimen would allow you experience less breakage/shedding, lesser knots,more defined curls and less frizz!

Products you can use?

You can buy a nice cheap conditioner from a store or online, wherever… or you can make them yourself! Here’s a few list we compiled:
