Pre-Poo = Pre-Shampoo Treatment/Conditioning

Pre-pooing is super beneficial to your wash/co-wash day!!! It helps with stripping and drying caused by shampoos. It can also boost your co-wash session by adding increased slip and manageability. Some pre-poo by doing a HOT (Hot Oil Treatment)... Others pre-poo by steaming on dry hair with their favorite conditioner. However you pre-poo... Let's do it together! :circle:

a) Current Hair Length: APL
b) Relaxed/Texlaxed/Natural/Transitioning: Natural
c) Pre-poo Process/Products: On Tuesdays, I pre-poo my plaits with co-wash conditioner under a heat cap for 30 minutes. For CW Saturdays, I pre-poo with DC under a heat cap for an hour or more. For shampoo Saturdays, I pre-poo overnight on Friday with oil, add on DC on Saturday mornings & sit under a heat cap for an hour or more. I am a product junkie so what I use will vary.
d) End-of-Year Goal Length: MBL
e) Pre-poo Frequency: Twice a week.
f) Starting Length Check Picture

I pre-poo'd Tuesday night by putting Dove Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner on my braids, sat under the heat cap for 30 minutes, CW'd and rinsed it out.

I will do an oil pre-poo overnight tomorrow. Not sure what I will use, but I'll let you know.

@ladybevy @IronButterfly
Have you pre-poo'd this week? If so, what did you use?

No I haven't yet. But I usually do my pre-poo overnight on Thursday night. My wash day is usually Fridays. So I will be doing it tonight not yet sure what I'm going to use yet.

OK. My pre-poo is in the fridge thawing out to use either tomorrow or Sunday. I make a concoction of coconut milk, fresh aloe vera gel, oils and honey and store it in the ice tray until ready for use. Extra cubes get put in a container in the freezer. When these puppies thaw, I will transfer the liquid into an applicator bottle, drench my hair with this creamy white goodness and top my hair off with some coconut oil. I'll keep it on for about an hour and proceed with the hair washing. I think I'ma do a clay cleanse this weekend.

ETA Mission accomplished!! Left pre-poo in for over 2hrs cuz I was watching The Martian. I hate Matt Damon for making me like him so much when he can be such dooz IRL.
