Why You Should Pre-Poo Your Natural Hair

Should you Pre-poo your natural hair? If you have been around in the natural hair game for a while, then you have probably come across the term pre-poo. Pre-poo isΒ a pre-shampoo treatment for your hair. I usually like to add my favorite oil and a rinse out conditioner for my pre-poo.

Some amazing combos for pre-pooing are:

  • Coconut oil & Castor Oil
  • Olive Oil & Honey
  • Jojoba oil & Conditioner

You can use any combination, depending on what your hair likes.

Benefits of the Pre-Poo

How to pre poo natural hair


Helps with MOISTURE

I bet you hear about moisture all the time? In fact, moisture is one of the main issues many curly girls deal with when going natural. A pre-poo treatment will help put moisture back into your hair.

Detangles Hair

Pre-poo treatments are known to help you get those stubborn tangles out of your hair. It will make your detailing session a breeze. Breakage is more prone to dry hair, so when you apply your pre-poo treatment and let it sit for 10-30 minutes, it will help not only detangle but also reduce breakage.

Protects your hair

The shampoo process can be a very rough process on your hair. The pre-poo treatment will help protect your hair from the harsh shampoo process.

Softens Hair

I have noticed that when I do a pre-poo treatment, my hair is left very soft and shiny after my pre-poo. Pre-pooing is perfect for any hair type.

How to do a Pre-Poo Treatment:

  1. Section hair into four sections, then apply your pre-poo mixture
  2. Cover your hair with a plastic cap, and let your pre-poo treatment sit for 15-30 minutes
  3. Rinse your hair, then proceed with your shampoo
  4. Repeat on wash day if desired

      Hi! No I would sit under the steamer with your deep conditioner. The pre-poo is just your pre-shampoo treatment to help make your shampoo process easier.
