We're all about a good post-hair-wash treatment mask or deep conditioner, but did you know that you can also benefit from conditioning your hair before shampooing? The point of pre-shampooing — or as many call it, "pre-poo" — is to give your hair some extra strength and nourishment before you wash, specifically if you often find that your hair is dry or brittle. If that's the case for you, consider taking 20-30 minutes out of your regular wash day to give your hair some extra help and prevent your shampoo from stripping it too much.
There are a ton of treatment options to choose from, whether you're looking at a standard conditioner or a natural oil. Read ahead to check out some of our favorite products to use before shampooing.
