Prepoo is hair treatment done before shampooing to prevent the shampoo from stripping the hair of its natural oils and moisture.

This treatment can be done from 20 minutes to overnight depending on your hair needs. Prepoo helps to reduce frizz and sometimes help to soften the hair.

Investing in a good thermal cap or plastic cap is encouraged for all naturalistas. Also if you always wash your hair with shampoo, then don’t skip this step.


1. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

This oil contains fatty acids that coats the shaft of the hair. EVOO moisturizes the hair and helps to loosen dandruff.

2. Coconut oil

This is a carrier oil that helps to fight frizz, stimulates hair follicles, boosts hair growth, protects hair from split ends and it’s easily absorbed into the hair.

3. Jamaican black castor oil

This carrier oil which is very thick can also be used for prepoo because it improves blood circulation in the scalp which stimulates hair growth.

4. Avocado

Avocado is edible and nutritious. It contains more fatty acid than Olive oil. It nourishes and strengthens the hair strands and prevents grey hairs.

5. Sesame oil

This is my favourite prepoo oil. This oil also helps to fight frizz, darkens the hair and protects the hair against UV rays from sunlight.

Which is your favourite prepoo oil?

  1. OMG!!!!!!!

    Your hair is so full, thick and black. Please what is your secret? Do you use henna on your hair? You have such a wonderful 4c hair. Gorgeous!


    1. Awww, thank you very much dear.

      Honestly, I don’t have super secret because I document my journey on this blog. Just visit our HAIR column to see my regime. And to answer your question, I have never used henna before but I did try to change the colour of my hair to red last month but it didn’t work. I used colour Me hair dye.
      All the best on your hair journey💕


  2. All I see is the texture of your kinks. For sometime now, I haven’t prepooed but when I do, I use Honey and coconut oil.
