DIY Pre-poo, hair oiling mask before shampoo| wash day

  • DIY, Hair

Today I have another recipe for homemade potions – DIY Pre-poo, a nourishing EH hair mask that we use before washing. Jets is another method of hair oiling – using a nourishing and oil mask. It is so great and easy to use that it is very easy to apply to hair, and everything is easy to rinse. It does not need to be emulsified with a conditioner and there is no way of overburdening the hair due to overdoing it with oils.

Therefore, it is a hair oiling method recommended especially for busy and beginner hair maniacs. I love to nourish my hair this way, especially during the winter months when frost, humidity, radiators and dry air are seriously damaging my curly hair. After such a mask, they are always smooth and very soft, and they shine wonderfully. I am not afraid of ruffling or ruffling after wearing the hat. It is definitely a very easy and quick method for hair oiling, as well as a recipe for tuning the mask / conditioner. If you are interested in what my recipe for your favorite DIY hair oil mask before shampooing looks like, check out my short post.

As a base conditioner, you can use any simple emollient mask without sticking and silicones, such as Kallos Color, Gloria, Hegron, Sessio, Russian etc. You can also use a simple moisturizing conditioner – then we do not need to add aloe anymore.

Oils can be replaced with those that best serve our hair (or those that we have at home). The pre-po mask can also be used with any cooking oils available in our Kucknip – olive oil, rapeseed oil and even butter.

Instead of aloe vera gel, we can also use honey or dissolved sugar in this recipe – they have a similar moisturizing effect, but they can stick the hair a bit.

It is important to wash off such a mask properly! It is necessary to wash it off with shampoo, and to close the care, we can also use a light emollient conditioner – we brush it or leave it only for a few minutes.
