Getting the Max out of a prepoo

Art by Cassandra Calin

Hey y’all! I  know that I  have talked about prepooing several times. Here’s the thing it works! It would be a huge disservice to not push prepooing when I know the benefits it has.

For those who may not know what prepooing is it is basically preparing your hair to be cleansed. This is done by simply adding conditioner or an oil( in my case coconut oil) to your hair and scalp focusing on your ends and working your way up the hair shaft.

Getting the maximum out of a prepoo is easy. The first thing you can do to get the most out of a prepoo is to take advantage of applying your product to your scalp by giving yourself a scalp massage.

Scalp massages are great because they get the blood flowing and promote growth. A few minutes a day proves to be beneficial why not kill two birds with one stone.

Not only does a scalp massage promote hair growth it begins the process of lifting the build up from your scalp.

While coating the hair It would be a great time to section your hair. Once your hair is sectioned you can take this time to do a little finger detangle.

I wouldn’t go ham on a serious tangle, but anything that reduces tangles during the cleansing process is a win.

This is actually an alternative for me to dry detangling. Anybody who knows me knows I don’t detangle my curls dry. This is an easy fix!

Earlier I mentioned focusing on your ends during the prepoo process here’s why that’s oh so important. Adding coconut oil to your ends before washing your hair prevents split ends.

Having healthy ends cuts down on trims. I don’t know about y’all but I dread the wash-day that I also have to trim. Anything I can do to cut back well why the heck not 🤷🏾‍♀️.

Not only does applying coconut oil prevent split ends it reduces the look of them. If you already have them that’s a win! Who could say no to that.

But be warned this doesn’t mean it’s a cure for split ends. Believe me girlfriend you still gotta get at them👏🏾! However, this is a band-aid for the time being.

Prepooing has done wonders for me. It has made detangling easier and helps with how much cleansing can strip from my hair and scalp. This is especially great for me now that the season of dry itchy scalp are upon us.

I hope that this information was helpful in your journey to healthy hair. Remember, be happy, be curly, be you, and you will never fail!
