Do you think you have dry hair? How do you know it's dry? Okay, so it's hard to the touch. It looks ashy. It's hard to style. I'm a firm believer that dry hair is not something that has to be accepted with natural hair. There are numerous ways to infuse/maintain moisture into natural curly hair. This week, I'll just start with the pre-poo (or pre shampoo) treatment. Before you shampoo, you can opt to put your favorite conditioner, also followed up by your favorite oil(s) on your hair. If you want to leave this on for 15 minutes with a shower cap or overnight...it's up to you.
The benefits to this are: minimize the drying effects of harsh shampoos, infuses moisture, encourages moisture retention, minimizes breakage, conditions hair, softens hair, etc. The benefits are numerous. So if you find that your hair constantly feels and looks dry, you can add a pre-poo treatment to your shampoo regimen! Stay tuned for more dry hair solutions!
