PrePoo Your Way To Gorgeous Curls
What is it?
Let's start with basics. What is a prepoo? This is when you mix natural oils, such as almond or jojoba, with a moisturizing conditioner. Once you've created your customized mixture based upon what your strands need, you can apply it throughout your strands. Once strands are coated, you'll protect your strands from the harshness of a shampoo. If you don't want to use oils, you can try all natural ingredients such as yogurt and avocado.
How to do it:
After you've created your customized mix, it's time to get started. You can adjust your mix based upon your individual curls' needs. Feel free to add things in, such as a mashed bananas, or even essential oils. This will help maximize the amount of moisture your curls receive during the treatment. Working in small sections, apply the product to your strands. Once curls are completely covered, place a plastic shower cap on your head. Allow to sit for 30 minutes. You can apply heat as well if you'd like. After you've finished this treatment, shampoo your curls and follow with a conditioning treatment.
Whenever you plan to wash your curls is when it's best to prepoo your curls. This could be weekly, bi weekly, or even monthly.
Why should I prepoo?
Glad you asked! There are a lot of benefits to prepooing your curls. When you prepoo, your curls become easier to manage while shampooing, and much less likely to break when handling. Curls will be softer, and easier to detangle.
