Whatever or however you choose to Pre-poo remember:
- Kinky, or curly hair are always in need of moisture and a Pre-poo treatment is a great way to add extra moisture when applied. Seasonal stress on the hair such as heat, humidity, wind, salt water, etc, can leave curls extra dry. Adding a prepoo treatment to hair helps to restore lost moisture.
- A Pre-poo treatment helps avoid tangles. After a Pre-poo treatment hair is softer, and more manageable. Making it easier to detangle the hair.
- If are a natural that uses sulfate shampoos. Sulfates can strip the hair, sometimes stripping the natural oils our hair need to help shape and protect the hair. Adding a Pre-poo treatment to the routine can help restore the hair.
Overall, after a Pre-poo method is completed you will notice soft, shiny, healthier hair. Its a well worth treatment, for a well worth beauty. 🙂
