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.  There is risk of hydral fatigue with overnight prepoo, so try this only if your hair is super dry and in need of moisture. 

How long to keep it? At least 20 minutes before wash. You can keep it overnight. You decide based on how your hair feels,

The scalp treatment goes first, the smell is quite strong but I love it! This smells like a mixture of herbs and tea tree oil. The texture is light but sticky. The herbal hair mask smells lovely like citrus, one of my favorite fruity scents! Little goes a long way, one pump per section is enough!
Like all prepoo treatments, hair feels soft after washing it out. The hair elixir has a floral scent and doubles as a serum also.

People change, right? #ad We learn. We grow. We do better. I know I have. I try. And it’s awesome to see brands do it too. When I tried Vilvah last, it didn’t work for me. I told them, I moved on. They did better. They changed their formula, came up with a new line and it. is. amazing. Here’s what I used: ▪️Moringa & Argan Oil Hair Mask: A little goes a long way! Keep in a shower cap for an hour before shampoo (or overnight for super dry curls) and you’ll see and feel the difference. My hair feels so shiny and moisturised . ▪️Herbal anti-dandruff shampoo: Again, I only needed a little. It clarifies hair really well, lathers only a little, and works well with other products in the line . ▪️ cream conditioner: Doubles as a deep conditioner, so I kept it in my hair for ten minutes after I applied it. And I didn’t need to use creams afterwards, so I just styled with a leave in and a curl enhancer. These are my no gel, no cream results and I’m super impressed with how much moisture the line offers when used together . ✅ code: HONESTLIZ for 10% Vilvah.com Thank you to @Vilvah_ for partnering with me. It’s a treat to work with homegrown brands and I’m looking forward to finding more treasures for my community in India.
