If you have fine curls, you might find yourself coming to dread wash day. On wash day, fine curls can be prone to tangles and knots, but then using too heavy of a conditioner can also weigh your strands down. If you’ve felt like you’re in a never-ending cycle of difficulty with your strands, you’re not alone. Pre poo can be your savior when it comes to washing your fine curls. Here’s how to pre poo fine curly hair, and have a much better wash day.
**Pick a product:
**Start by selecting a product designed for finer curls. You don’t want to use an oil that’s too heavy, or else it’ll end up dragging your curls down. Instead, opt for a lightweight oil that will still soften, without leaving your strands a sticky mess. Pre made pre poo products containing plant milks are a great way to go.
Apply in sections:
As tedious as it can feel at times, working section by section is the way to go when it comes to curly hair. Gently section each area out, making sure not to pull on knots or tangles. Then work the pre poo into your curls, making sure to lightly cover all areas. While you’re working on applying, make sure you don’t apply it directly to the roots of your hair or on the scalp. Instead, start at the midshaft and work your way down the curl shaft. If you apply to the roots, that can ultimately cause your pores to become clogged, or damage the roots of your curls. After you’ve applied the product, use the tips of your fingers to gently massage it into the strands, focusing on the ends.
One of the benefits of a pre poo is it saves you time on trying to detangle your hair in the shower. Instead, focus on detangling while your pre poo is sitting on your curls. Use your fingertips or a wide toothed comb to work the product into your curls, and remove any tangles. Go slowly and gently to avoid damaging your strands.
