Avocado and Coconut Milk Pre-Poo and Whipped Coconut Cream Cleanser

Greetings! It is that time of the week for my conditioning and cleansing! I am not using protein this week. I put together a video (it was hard work!) for you all with my process of mixing the pre-poo and the cleanser. The pre-poo is great for maintaining your moisture balance when you cleanse. It’s a great blend of moisture and lubrication. I have an older pre-poo article that details the benefits of pre-poos but  it needs some serious updating so I will post that a little later :)!

I like mix my own poo/cleanser as well because I don’t want to cleanse with something that won’t properly remove the excess pre-poo or that will strip the hair post pre-poo! Hope you enjoy my video!

Thanks for visiting my page!

Pre-poo Recipe (pre-shampoo)

 I tried a new pre-poo recipe the other day and was very satisfied with the results so I wanted to share it with my readers. These are the ingredients I used:

•red palm oil (5 tablespoons)
•coconut milk (1/4 cup)
•honey (2 tablespoons)
•yogurt (1/4 cup)

I moistened my hair slightly with water. I applied to mixture to my damp hair, covered with a shower cap and let it penetrate for about 2 hours.  I rinsed thoroughly with warm water and then applied some Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner. After that, I shampooed once with Hair Garden Cleansing Shampoo and followed with the Giovanni conditioner. I then sectioned my hair into four sections and applied coconut oil to my dripping wet hair before towel blotting it. I let my hair air dry for almost 30 minutes and then detangled with Hair Garden shealoe moisturizer. I braided my hair into three cornrows and let it dry overnight. The next day I had soft, shiny hair and a moisturized scalp!

Give this recipe a try! You can add or exchange ingredients for your experimenting pleasure! I would love for you to come back and share what you tried and your results on my blog! Thanks for reading!
