Question About Pre-Poo Treatments

CrosshairsCrosshairs Posts: 127Registered Users
I was just wondering...do most of you put in your pre-poo treatment on wet or dry hair?

I've been co-washing, then applying coconut oil as an overnight pre-poo to wet hair and covering with a plastic cap. In the morning I use Devacurl's No-Poo (not really a shampoo), then condition again and style.

When I read that people do pre-poos, very rarely do they say if they apply on wet or dry hair. Can anyone let me know? ThanksA

    I load my hair up with apricot oil before shampooing - always on dry hair. I've never tried with wet hair, so don't know what it would be like. Might be worth an experiment. :)

    Pre poos are better on dry curly hair. They absorb better and there's less mess.

    A pre poo like a hot oil treatment makes the hair soft and it prevents the shampoo from drying out the hair.My shampoo is very gentle but i'll like to do a hot oil treatment again.I only did it about 2 or 3 times so far.

    I apply it to dry hair.Almost 2 years ago I made my olive oil hot( caution) and I apply it to my puffy dry hair, shampoo,and left my hair to air dry.Hours later I felt defined curls in my short puff( i braided the front and i had a band on the rest of my hair to make a puff).I hope when i try that method again it would work.Some products that i used when my hair was short didn't work well on my hair now.i heard some people here said the same thing abou their hair.
