As previously stated in another entry, pre-pooing is a conditioning step taken by a lot of women prior to shampooing their hair in order to prepare the hair for the harsh ingredients and detergents found in a lot of shampoos. A couple of weeks ago, I formulated my own pre-poo and tried it for the first time along with Organix Coconut Milk nourishing shampoo and Suave Humectants conditioner. When I first came to you all about these products, I thought that the Suave Humectants conditioner is what was making my hair feel so ridiculously soft, but last night I found that it was not! It was actually my pre-poo formula! Now, I'm not completely done playing around with the formula. I still want to try adding my Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti Breakage Serum to the mix simply because I love the product THAT much. But anyway, if you have these ingredients at home, I definitely recommend giving it a try. It's relatively cheap to make and one of the benefits is that you know exactly what's in it 'cause, well, you watched yourself do it! Anyways, on with the recipe:
You may or may not want to add the megatek but it adds a lot of protein to the mix which could be beneficial in the strengthening of you hair (as long as you don't go into protein overload). Whenever I do this again and add the Coconut Milk Serum, I'll only be adding 4 pumps which is what I usually use for my entire head (1 pump per section) any other time.
So after stirring everything up, focussing especially on the coconut oil which was in a solid state when I did this, I applied about two or three tsp to each section of my hair. Whatever was left over was also used to saturate my hair afterwards. Once that step was completed, I put a plastic cap over my head and sat under the dryer for 10 minutes with the heat set to medium. After coming out from under the dryer my hair felt extremely soft and ridiculously manageable. I swear by this process! Give it a try and let me know what you all think! Until next time, Happy Healthy Hair Growing!
