3 Reasons You Should Pre-Poo
What’s better than jumping in the shower and clarifying your curls with a much-needed shampoo? Not much! Shampooing your natural hair is essential for your scalp’s health, removing product build-up and restoring your hair. But, what about adding pre-poo?
Here are three of the top benefits of pre-pooing your hair!
What is pre-poo?If you’re still learning natural hair terminology, then the phrase ‘pre-poo’ may have you a little confused. Pre-poo is an abbreviation of pre-shampoo and it simply means applying a treatment or oil before shampooing. You can do this every wash day or on occasions when your curls a little TLC, either way, it can do wonders for your hair.
Struggle with knots?] If so, you want to tackle your knots and tangles by applying a pre-poo then detangle your hair is best. Allow it to work it’s magic first for around 30 minutes then detangle as this is much gentler.
Save on conditioner
There’s no denying that we can all go a little overboard when it comes to applying conditioner, so much so that it often runs out way before shampoo! By adding pre-poo into your routine your curls are easier to detangle and get an extra dose of moisture, replacing the need for excessive conditioner. Not only will this save your products, but when your curls are less stripped your moisturizer can actually penetrate the hair rather than simply being washed away and having no real effect.

When hair is ‘over-clean’ it can become dry and brittle which isn’t great for curly hair. Pre-poo restores your hair before washing by ensuring that the scalp and lengths of your hair have the right balance of oils. Soft, shiny and moisturized curls will look and feel a lot better than squeaky clean locks - this can also promote hair growth and make your wash days last longer too.
