The Benefits of a Oil Pre-poo

Extra tender loving and care are the needs of all African American hair types. The kinky texture is prone to dryness and sucks up moisture which can lead to brittle hair and breakage. A pre-poo can aide in moisture retention while adding to the oils that need to be in the hair.

Adding Moisture

Natural elements around us like: wind, rain, sun, and particles in the air, can have an effect on the state of the hair. Before wash day (especially when clarifying) adding oil will prevent drying out the hair anymore than it already will be. Naturally the hair gets dirty and needs to be clean but African American’s do not produce as much natural oils as other ethnicities being the reason why moisturizing and sealing is so important! Adding back in all the good stuff.

Sectioning

Working in sections has been a life savor for my hair journey and helps me manipulate through my hair more effectively with less breakage. A Pre-poo subcontiously gives you the opportunity to go through the sections of your hair and check things out! Get the shredded hairs out the way and make sure your whole head of hair is getting the same treatment.

Hair Growth

During my pre-poo process I love using peppermint oil! Working in sections I’m able to access my scalp and apply the oil directly onto it. I feel the tingling sensation and give myself a great scalp massage which stimulates hair growth.

If your hair is super dry I would recommend treating your pre-poo process identical to moisturizing and sealing. I would moisturize with a water based conditioner and follow up with the oil. This allows the oil to really penetrate the cuticle and result in smooth, soft, and shiny hair.

 

Enoy! Until next time loves.

Bantu Knot Out

Continuing my curly girl series #CGS I decided to do this super cute modified bantu-knot out. I ran across Roothie Patootie’s youtube channel and she had a styling video where she did a different type of method with bantu knots. I though it was a brilliant idea and I just had to try it out! I love the bounce and shape it gives my hair! I can’t wait until day 2 or 3 to see how it drops! Watch the full video down below to see how I did it and how it came out!

Enoy! Until next time loves.

Kera Care Thermal Wonder Wash Day

Im definitely taking it back with this one! I used to use Kera Care products when I was in high school a long time ago, and now I want to start using it again full time! One thing that I always associate Kera Care products with is the fresh tingling sensation you get with these products. I’ve never felt that before with another other hair products and I really enjoy the feeling. Ill break down my wash day with some pros and cons:

PROs

  • Sulfate Free
  • Great Lather
  • The prepoo gives a lot of slip and moisture to the hair
  • Tingle sensation makes your scalp feel amazing!
  • I can feel the “thermal protectant” working while using the prepoo

 

CONs

  • Shampoo is drying after second wash
  • Products burns your eyes

Although this product is for naturally curly hair I wanted to try it out since Im three months post relaxer and I knew flat ironing would be a challenge. The thought of my whole wash day routine helping with the flatiron process is amazing! For chemically treated hair though, I would shampoo then use the prepoo. OR you can use the Kera Care moisturizing conditioner after you shampoo.

Do I feel like treatment helped with the straightening process?

Being that I used silk elements heat protect and not the Kera Care line I would say yes and no. Yes because I felt silk agents in the prepoo and I knew that contribution came in handy while flat ironing. I would say no because I didn’t use the whole line for my routine and Im not sure if that affected the results in any way!

Would I use this line again?

Yes of course! Since being in cosmetology school I’ve grown an appreciation for salon products. I know that using the same line also affects the results because the formula is made to work with the product line. AND not to mention the bottles are sealed so no one has been in the store taking your product!

If you have any questions feel free to ask away!

Until next time,

Do what you love, love what you do.
