Want to add shine to your dry/dull hair?! I’ve tried so many new products this year, BUT prepoo is one of the top methods that has made all the difference!
If you do this diligently, you’ll be floored with the difference you’ll see in softness and shine. You can see how soft and lighter my hair looks compared to last year here.
Ok, let’s get into it! Here is a quick summary:
How To Prepoo ☑
What is it? It’s preparing your hair before shampoo.
Why do it? To make hair soft, and manageable during wash; decreasing overall breakage and hair loss.
When to do it? On dry hair Before wash, going overnight is optional
What is the goal? To detangle and moisturize hair enough, so shampoo/cowash doesn’t strip all moisture out.
What to use: Your favorite oil, curl cream or intense oil serums. Using conditioner is optional for a better slip to help you detangle.
Can this be cowashed? Yes! This depends on how much oil/product you use. This is not deep conditioning so be gentle, and light.
Method: Section your hair and coat hair with product and detangle. Scalp Massage. Cover with a shower cap (important!!)
How do I do it? The hard water in my new house dries my hair out a lot so I wash every 3 days or twice in a week now. I OVERNIGHT prepoo with a shower cap under my satin bonnet once a week only. You don’t want to risk hydral fatigue with overnight prepoo, so be mindful.
How long to keep it? At least 20 minutes before wash. You can keep it overnight. You decide based on how your hair feels,
