The verdict on pre-pooing

I kept saying that I didn’t feel the difference with my hair whether I pre-poo or not. That is now a false statement.

Last weekend, I accidentally forgot to pre-poo. I had just finished working out and I think I was too focused on just washing the sweat out that pre-pooing completely slipped my mind. It wasn’t until I put the conditioner in my hair that I realized I hadn’t pre-poo’d. I just continued with my usual routine and deep conditioned. Instead of using My Honey Child – Olive You deep conditioner, I switched back to Shea Moisture – Organic African Black Soap Balancing Conditioner.

When I finished washing and conditioning my hair and began twisting it, my hair felt different. It felt like it hadn’t really absorbed the moisture. It didn’t feel dry, but more like stripped. It wasn’t horrible, but I definitely felt the difference.

With that said, I’ll continue pre-pooing knowing that it is benefitting my hair.

In the next post, we’ll discuss my ends.
