A pre-poo treatment is also called pre shampoo treatment and can be described as the hair care treatment that you can apply to your hair prior to shampooing it. With most people, the pre-poo treatment that they use is the hot oil treatments. Note that there are also homemade treatments that you can utilize too. A good example is a mixture of cheap conditioner extra virgin olive type of oil which you can use when your afro hair starts feeling specifically parched. The best time to apply the moisture is the night prior to shampooing. Wear a plastic bag and wrap the bagged hair using a scarf in order for it to be rescued.

Another useful tip is to wash the hair on weekly basis. This means that you need to wash the hair once or twice in one week. When washing the hair once per week, use sulfate-free shampoo. Shampoo that is sulfate-free will not strip the hair or scalp off its moisture. If you are to wash it two times, this is best when done in summer. In such a case, on one day of the week, use sulfate-free shampoo. The next time, during the weekly wash, opt for a conditioner wash. The other alternative is a co-wash which is known to remove debris and dirt while retaining your hair’s moisture.
Heat styling should be done few times in a year. When you heat style your natural afro hair, you will be damaging it because it requires high levels of heat and the hair is also pulled in the process. The process is damaging because; it removes the moisture from the hair, and when the hair is pulled, and as it dries, split ends and breakage occurs. when you feel that heat must be applied to the hair, the roller set up that is done under a dryer that is hooded is the better option. Although this process is long, the hair is exposed to less breakage.
Between washes, you need to wear a style that is protective. A style is said to be protective if it will keep the ends secured or hidden so that they will not form knots. With natural afro hair, the common protective styles include twists, braids, and corn rows. The best thing is for you to become creative when it comes to protective styles. Between washes, you can wear twists which can be in a braided or woven style.
One of the tips to constantly remember is having a scalp that is always moisturized while during bed time; cover the head using a silky scarf.
