Before you shampoo, do you pre-shampoo? While formulas vary to address specific needs, most of these before-you-cleanse-type products are designed to enhance the benefits of your shampoo and conditioner. They often have an oily consistency, and when used in conjunction with a massage, they can be quite soothing.
But are they necessary? No, but many people love to use them because of the soft and shiny results these treatments provide. Do you like pre-shampoo treatments, or do you pooh-pooh the idea?
