Hot Oil Pre-Poo w. Results

I almost never do hot oil treatments. I have way too many memories of me burning my scalp off and wondering why I even bothered. But this time I decided to do one because I couldn't deal with the dryness the shampoo was about to bring- I REALLY do not like shampooing my hair! So I did a hot oil treatment that consisted of:

  • Olive Oil
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Grapeseed Oil

 Once I heated it up in the microwave to a decent temperature, I applied it to my hair over the sink and massaged it to my scalp while making sure each strand was coated. After letting it set for about 5-10 minutes I shampooed it out once instead of my normal 2-3 times. I immediately felt a difference in my hair, it felt and smelled clean and was still moisturized. I was shocked to say the least! All this time I heard this, that and the third about pre-pooing and it's magic that I was too lazy to try out. I detangled and twisted my hair using Eden's BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Leave-in Conditioner, my Sunburst and I was VERY pleased with the results. My hair was moisturized, and 2 days later my curls are still popping and juicy without a refresher. I am now a fan of the Pre-Poo!

*Sidenote: I recently got a few inches of hair cut off, this also contribute to my healthy twistout and well formed curls. As sad as I was about losing the length, my hair hasn't looked better in ages!
