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... Lets do it together!

Re: **Pre-poo Through 2014**

DominicanBrazilian82.....
I am in with the pre poo!
I am approaching full APL
I am natural
I soak my hair overnight or for a few hours
Next year hopefully I will be MBL. I seem to be a slow grower but plan to be nicer to my hair next year.
My length check is not until next month.
I stocked up earlier this month. I bought 2 EVCO jars, 1 organic olive oil, a tall bottle of grapeseed, 1 pumpkin seed oil and wheat germ. I still have an unopened vatika oil from Hairveda. I may look like an oil slick but I am ready for treatments!!

I will be doing this once or twice a week.

DominicanBrazinian82

Love the pre-poo although my DH thinks I'm cray cray to put oils in my hair just to wash it out, I'll be prepoo'in straight to MBL. Count me in!!


b) Current Hair Length - BSB, about an inch or two from APL

c) Relaxed/Texlaxed/Natural/Transitioning - Natural

d) Pre-poo Process/Products - I really like the OJON restorative hair treatment, I also like Keraveda's oils, they all have coconut oil so I'm good with that. I also want to try new mixtures even incorporating some water based products. If i don't have long I'll sit under heat for a few. If Im prepoo'in overnight I'll nix the heat and go for the soak.

e) End-of-Year Goal Length - MBL for sure!!

f) Pre-poo Frequency? (1/week, 2/month, etc) Once a week

g) Most Recent Length Check Pic (12/31/13 Latest) I just did a length check a week or so ago, I'll post the pic later

3. Post your process each pre-poo session. From each other we can learn techniques, processes and, my favorite, products!!![/QUOTE]

I added water to my prepoo this week and I'm sitting in it now. I mixed together a couple of butters, oils and some fenugreek tea. It became a cream and although I'm not fond of wet hair all day, I'll let you know how it turns out.

Later
