Shortly after joining the curly girl community, you will typically be bombarded with terms and techniques you’ve never heard before.
Today I’m breaking down the term pre-poo. What it means, do you need it, and how to do it.
What is a pre-poo?
A pre-poo” is an oil treatment applied to hair before shampooing or cleansing. It can also be applied overnight. The purpose of a pre-poo is to add moisture, repair hair shaft, and detangle curls before washing.
You can easily create your own pre-poo full of delicious oils! I used coconut oil, argan oil, and Jamaican black caster oil.
