The pre-shampoo treatment is a protective hair remedy designed to supplement nourishment into moisture-deprived hair shafts. This is a practice for days when shampooing and conditioning don’t cut the slack for you. It integrates a protective layer over the hair strands to limit the shampoo’s ability to strip away moisture.

The Benefits of Pre-Pooing

Pre-shampoo treatments have a restorative effect on tangled, damaged, and dry hair. It adds extra moisture to the strands, making it easier to detangle the head. It also boosts the conditioner’s effectiveness to account for stronger hair shafts that are less prone to breakage. Lastly, it promotes soft and vibrant hair, which elevates your overall look!

Note: Before you work with a conditioner over your hair extensions, read Brenda’s prescribed method. A conditioner should only be used on the ends of the hair shaft, else it may slip the hair extensions out.

What to Use for Pre-Pooing

This treatment entails applying creams, balms, butter, and oils to dry hair before shampooing the head. Pre-pooing oils are recommended for those with straight or curly hair, while aloe vera is advisable for dandruff or an itchy scalp. However, balm and butter are recommended to those looking to reverse damage caused due to coloring, heat, and chemical treatments.

How is Pre-Pooing Done

It may be left on for as little or as long as desired; while normal hair could do with half an hour of pre-pooing, dehydrated strands tend to demand a full day.

Start by dividing your hair into sections to deliver the product to each region on your head.

The idea here is to trap hydration and moisture, which ultimately results in strong, shiny, and healthy hair, so you want to coat your hair from the roots to the ends.Hereafter you can detangle the tangles using a wide-toothed comb and leave the hair pre-pooing overnight. Once done, you can wash and condition your hair to remove the products used during the pre-pooing treatment.
