And when that doesn’t happen you’re disappointed. Its on to the next one. This post will help to decrease your product junkie tendencies. And get more out of your current product stash. Here are 3 simple things you can add to your current regimen to give it an extra boost.
How to get the Most Out of Your…
Shampoo by Pre-pooing
Pre-poo is the process of treating the hair with coconut oil before shampooing to prevent excess loss of natural oils and damage. The natural oils can be stripped by traditional shampoos during the cleansing process.
I have to admit that I was somewhat anti pre-poo. It just didn’t make sense to condition or moisturize your hair before shampooing. But I was wrong. Studies show that moisturizing your hair with coconut oil before shampooing prevents damage and the loss of the hair’s natural proteins in addition to helping the hair stay moisturized.
I use whipped coconut oil to pre-poo my hair.
Conditioner by adding oil
Get more out of your conditioner by adding a natural oil. A little bit of olive oil, jojoba, almond and/or avocado oil will take your conditioner to the next level. This will add an extra moisturizing factor and vitamins to the conditioner’s existing formula.
Leave-In Conditioner by adding Aloe Vera gel or juice
