PRE-POO RECIPE FOR MOISTURE

You know the benefits (some) get from pre-pooing. I know I had great strength against breakage when I used to pre-poo when I began my hair journey. I slacked off but now trying to regain what worked again.

Somehow I misplaced the 100% Coconut Oil I just bought. So I had to remix the pre-poo oils. I decided to use Shea Butter and Olive Oil. No matter what your ingredients are, just be sure to check your allergies. Always test a small area prior to doing your whole head. That's with any product you plan to use.

This is my routine for pre-pooing hair:

  • DO NOT COMB HAIR
  • PUT HAIR INTO FOUR SECTIONS
  • START WITH THE BACK SECTION SINCE THAT IS THE SECTION THAT WILL MOST LIKELY RUB AGAINST MATERIAL. 
  • APPLY MIX TO ONE SECTION - MAKE SURE IT IS WELL THROUGH THE STRANDS - PIN THAT SECTION UP AFTER APPLICATION
  • REPEAT FOR THE REMAINING THREE SECTIONS
  • PLACE A SHOWER CAP OR PLASTIC BAG OVER HAIR
  • DECIDE IF YOU ARE GOING TO GO UNDER THE DRYER FOR 20 MINUTES 
    • OR WEAR THE SHOWER CAP WITH A HEAD WRAP OVER TOP OF THE BAG TO PIN IN NATURAL HEAT/MOISTURE FOR 20 MINUTES
  • IF THIS IS FOR YOUR REGULAR WASH DAY, SHAMPOO AND CONDITION AS NORMAL
    • FOR MYSELF, I DO AM JUST GOING TO WASH OUT THE SHEA MIX AND THEN GO STRAIGHT TO CONDITIONING MY HAIR. I DECIDED TO SKIP THE SHAMPOO PROCESS SINCE THIS IS NOT MY WEEK TO SHAMPOO.
  • STYLE AS NORMAL
My hair maintained the moisture and some of the oils since I did not "cleanse" with shampoo. It is so shiny, soft and easy to manipulate. Give pre-pooing a try if you never have. You will love the resultspre
