Step-by-Step Wash Day (Hair Edition)

Pre-poo provides a protective layer to your hair that avoids moisture strips from the shampoo. 

  • Section your hair into 4-8 parts
  • Apply conditioner and/or oil throughout the sections
  • Detangle sections with fingers or wide-toothed comb & twist.
  • Cover head for up to 30 minutes or overnight (optional)
  • Rinse hair thoroughly

Shampoo captures excess oil, dirt, and product residue/buildup.

  • Always use sulfate and paraben-free shampoo!
  • Apply and massage the shampoo onto your scalp. (It promotes blood flow and hair growth)
  • Focus on your roots. (Applying on the ends will only get them dry.)
  • Do not detangle hair during this step.
  • Rinse hair with warm water
  • Only apply shampoo 1-2 times to clean the hair.

Conditioners smooth and detangle the hair, which helps reduce breakage and split ends.

  • Always use sulfate and paraben-free conditioner!
  • Apply GENEROUSLY and focus on your ends (avoid your scalp)
  • Start to detangle your hair with a wide-tooth comb or detangling brush
  • Rinse hair thoroughly.

  • This is an optional hydrating treatment
  • Apply generously on each section and put on a conditioner cap for at-least 30-45mins (You can use heat for better penetration).
  • Rinse out with cold water

Moisturized hair is more elastic, less prone to breakage, and less prone to tangles. This will all help you retain length as your hair grows.
