In this one I’m sharing how I do my hot oil/pre poo treatment and how I easily turn it into a deep conditioning treatment when needed. This treatment is great for all hair types and definitely caters to dry, frizzy, or damaged hair. Applying this treatment to your hair routine regularly will give noticeable improvement in hair growth, a healthy scalp, moisturized hair, and length retention.
So lately I’ve been seeing everybody posting about how to grow longer healthier hair and so many people have been posting about hair growth pills and what not. That has sparked my interest in finding natural alternatives to growing your hair and retaining the length you obtain because truthfully length retention is equally important as growth. You can grow all the hair you want but with out the retention of that length you won’t see any progress.
So after some research I’ve found a few tips that I’m going to try and see if these things actually work.
Care and Maintenance
1) Use sulfate free products. While sulfates help clean the hair they also strip the hair of it’s natural moisture drying it out.
2) Pre-pooing (pre shampoo) using extra virgin olive or coconut oil. For those of you unfamiliar with pre-pooing it’s similar to doing a hot oil treatment where you apply the oil to your scalp and the length of your hair, let it sit for about 30 minutes (or longer if you’d like) and then rinse out and shampoo like normal. The purpose of pre-pooing is
helps in detangling
nourishes the scalp and hair
keeps hair moisturized during washing
prevents hair from being strip during the wash process
(I’ll make a separate post on how to pre-poo, very simple though)
3) Deep Condition after every wash. One of the things you want to keep in mind about your deep conditoner is that the first ingredient needs to be water. A great way to do this is by adding heat with the use of a conditioning cap and sitting under a hooded dryer for about 15-20 minutes. These are a few of my favorite:
10) Using minimal heat. A great way to dry your hair and help to retain moisture is by doing the LOC method above and then put you hair in a few large two strand twist. If you don’t want to wear the twist out you can always cover your hair with a cut hat (one of my favorite ways to wear my hair.
I will be trying these things and I will keep you updated on the progress because I think that there are other alternatives to these expensive hair pills.
