How to do a Pre Wash Oil Treatment aka Prepoo

Step 1: Using your fingers, divide your hair into 4-6 sections.





Step 2: Apply a heavy coating of pure coconut, olive, or avocado oil throughout each section. Make sure to put oil on every layer of your hair. Use 4-6 tablespoons depending on your hair length and strand thickness.




Step 3: Cover your hair with a plastic cap to keep the oil from dripping down your face and neck.



Step 4: Leave the oil on your hair for 1 hour. Some say it's better to keep the oil on longer (even overnight), but you'll have to decide for yourself. You can try different lengths of time to see if your hair feels better after longer treatments.



Step 5: Before you shower, comb your hair out with a wide tooth comb to remove tangles or knots.



Step 6: Wash and condition your hair.



Step 7: Be consistent. Do a Pre-Wash Oil Treatment before every shampoo.





Pre-wash oil treatments are a great way to soften and strengthen hair.


* Sometimes I use a deep conditioner or conditioner in place of the oil. Works just as well
