We know what you're thinking! Who needs another step in their wash day routine... well, you just might curlfriend! ;)
Pre-poo (or before shampoo) is a great way to add a layer of protection using a hair oil like our Stimulating Herbal Oil before cleansing or clarifying the hair.
Most people would prefer to go straight to cleansing, but if you're focused on length retention, suffer from super dry hair, or hair that can break easily when tangled, this step can be a huge benefit.
Here are four (4) reasons why you should consider pre-pooing your natural hair...
- Long time in-between wash day due to protective styling, your hair will have some shedding. Adding a pre-poo oil to remove it before cleansing will help avoid tangles.
- Hair that dries out quickly (high porosity) after washing and rinsing, doing a pre-poo will help with moisture retention.
- Dry scalp issues. Protecting the scalp is just as important as protecting the hair, this is where natural hair growth starts. Massage a few drops to stimulate the hair follicles and increase circulation over your entire head.
- If the style you're doing calls for a lot of manipulation, doing a pre-poo will prepare your hair for that to avoid lots of breakage.
