What is homemade pre-poo?

The pre-poo or pre-shampoo is a homemade combination of products that protect your hair! It is exactly what the name implies: “pre-poo”, that is, the step before shampoo. With the daily routine, washing your hair becomes something very automatic and we can forget about details that make all the difference. In this case, the detail is to apply the shampoo only to the hair roots. Once this is done, we must also protect the hair extension in the rinse.

That’s exactly what pre-poo is for. It should be applied to the hair extension before washing, as it is used to prepare your hair for shampoo application. The result of this protection is softer, fuller, hydrated and stronger strands.

Benefits of homemade pre-poo

Hairdresser Aldenice Nunes talks about the benefits of treatment prepared at home. Here are the main ones, check them out below!

  • Protects hair extensions and ends from the chemical components of the shampoo, including sulfate;
  • Ensures that the hot water from the shower does not damage the wires;
  • Provides hydration to the hair;
  • Prevents drying of the tips;
  • Leaves hair stronger, softer and shiny;
  • Helps to thicken hair more, avoiding split ends or with breakages.

She also points out that pre-poo is “something very simple to be done, it doesn’t weigh on your pocket and it doesn’t take a lot of time, but it has several benefits for the hair.”

Care and contraindications

According to Aldenice: “the care to perform the pre-poo involves the details of each type of hair. For example, oily hair requires more attention at the ends, while drier hair needs care in the middle and at the ends”. There is no contraindication for homemade pre-poo, only more personalized care.

A valuable tip given by Aldenice is to always comb your hair very well after applying the pre-poo. It is recommended to do the pre-poo before every wash, but 3x a week already presents satisfactory results. Even if applied just 20 minutes before the bath, it already offers more protection! According to the hairdresser: “homemade pre-poo is indicated for all types of hair, but those that have gone through a chemical process ask for a higher frequency and are worth the time invested!”.

How to make homemade pre-poo

Making the pre-poo is very simple, the combinations can vary a lot, but the base is a mask or cream combined with another more specific product for your hair, such as aloe, honey, vegetable oil, among other options. Best of all, you don’t need to make the recipe every time you wash. Make and store your mix in the fridge, and it should last for 1 month.
