Prepoo With Coconut Oil: Best Oil for Pre Poo

Look At This Sexy Coconut
They say that the hair is every woman's - or man's - crowning glory. If you're like me, and consider your hair as one of the more important parts of your body, it's probably time for you to consider a coconut oil prepoo treatment. Introducing prepoo with coconut oil has forever changed the health of my hair. My hair is very silky, hardly ever dry, and NOT weighed down. I personally use Spectrum Naturals Unrefined Coconut Oil, but any organic coconut oil will do.

I'm sure that you're accustomed to shampooing your hair when taking a shower. Duh. Shampoo washes away dirt and unwanted chemicals stuck on your hair and scalp, blahblah we already know this. However, we have to face the fact that shampoo products are made primarily of chemicals that can damage hair without you know it. Completing a prepoo treatment before shampooing reduces the damage brought about by the shampooing process. Your hair contains natural oils but daily shampoo usage can strip it off. Many people opt to put prepoo oil prior to shampooing because it helps restore natural hair moisture. Try it and you'll see how it can make your hair easier to manipulate in the shower, safeguarding you against tangling.

Top 3 Prepoo Oils

  1. Pree Poo with Tea Tree Oil: Tea tree oil is antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial. Completing a pree poo oil treatment with tea tree oil is perfect for those who suffer from chronic dandruff or any kind of dermatitis that is effecting the health of their scalp. Tea tree oil packs quite an aromatic punch, so a couple drops on your hair and on your scalp will do the trick. 
  2. Pre Poo with Olive Oil: Use the extra virgin kind. Olive oil is great at moisturizing the hair. However, I personally cannot stand the smell of olive oil. But if you can stand it, then I wholeheartedly recommend completing a prepoo treatment with olive oil.
  3. Pree Poo with Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is one of the few oils that can actually penetrate the hair, preserving the health of it as it moisturizes it. I recommend it if you have a head of hair, no matter the length or texture. 
Worst Prepoo Oils
  • Sunflower Oil: Sunflower oil cannot penetrate the hair. It just sits on your hair and not do much. Yuck.
  • Mineral Oil: Mineral is not natural. It's some man made stuff derived from petroleum. I feel like there is an outlier community out there who actually think that this stuff is good for them and their hair. It's not. Ever. 

If you're thinking that coconut oil prepoo is only for bringing hair's natural oils into equilibrium, then you are wrong. Scientists have already explored its advantages and you'll be amazed with what they've found out: Your hair made of proteins, specifically keratin. It is the main structural material found in the human skin and hair. These proteins and all other materials making up your hair are protected by natural oil secreted from the scalp and hair follicles. Because of too much pollution,stress, and shampooing, your natural oil secretion may be reduced. This is where the coconut prepoo treatment enters the picture. Coconut oil has antimicrobial properties which can battle bacterial growth, it contains vitamin E and lauric acid to preserve the hair's keratin bonds, 90% of it is saturated fat that will make your hair soft, and....coconuts smell quite lovely. I don't mind having my hair smell like tropical goodness.

If you're convinced that coconut oil prepoo is perfect for you, here's how you should use it.

Prepoo With Coconut Oil: Instructions 

1. Make sure that your hair is completely detangled before the treatment. Comb your hair thoroughly with a boar bristle brush.

2. Use comb and mirror to divide your hair into few sections before applying the coconut oil prepoo treatment. You must make sure that all strands are completely covered with the oil. To get the best results, massage your scalp with the oil as well. Remember that your scalp needs oil goodness as much as your hair.

3. Put on a shower cap. At this point, you can just sleep in the bath tub (or not. You'll drown and die), read a book, or just relax for 20 minutes. It takes this time frame for the coconut oil prepoo to function effectively.

4. After 20 minutes, you're ready to shampoo. Just make sure that the shampoo you're using is free of sulfates. You might find yourself shampooing twice to really clean the hair.

This was after my first time using coconut oil as a prepoo. My hair was quite marvelous.
