Earlier today was my wash day and a naturalista got curious and adventurous.
Heeyyah mane embracers, how’re y’all holding up? Thank you for stopping by and welcome to my natural hair blog.
Had a new wash day experience today and felt I should share with y’all because I love and value you so much. I switched up from using an instant conditioner for prepoo to using a mixture of olive and castor oil this year because am reducing the number of products I use on my hair. My thinking is too many products on my hair equals exposure to lots of chemicals, how did I get to that conclusion? I have no idea lol.
Back to my new experience, I used my moisturizer (water+leave-in) for my pre-poo. My adventurous self thought, “if the moisturizer makes my hair soft & gives a little slip, how about I use it as my prepoo and detangler as well”
That worked out better than I anticipated the detangling process was smooth and after cleansing, my hair was super soft and had the “super moisturized” kind of feel. I have never been this excited and am here typing as I figure out if I really need to deep condition.
I would love to know if any one of you has used a moisturizer as a pre-poo or detangler or both and if you did, how did your hair feel/workout. If you haven’t tried it I would encourage you to try and let me know how that worked for you. For wash day essentials I got you here.
