Thumbs up Protein as Pre-Poo Treatment Results

Just want to say thank you Macherieamour and the other ladies who suggested using protein conditioning as a pre-poo treatment. I tried and tried all week to find your thread(s) on this (since the search isn't working) to comment there and I couldn't.

I did this successfully using Keraphix on my dry hair, then rinsed and shampooed, followed by deep moisturizing conditioner. My hair was so soft, softer than all the other protein days when I used it after shampooing and still stronger. Very little if no shedding too. I'm going to do this from now on - thank you so much!!

I'm so happy with this method, thank you again!! Usually my hair was kind of stiff after I was all done, no matter how well I rinsed. This way, I have just as much body as before or even more and my hair has the protein strength.

BTW, I was going to try the ORS mayo when my keraphix was gone after all the good things I heard about it from you and the others!!

Yeah, I think CreoleinDC mentioned that it worked really well with plant based products. Something about the steam adding oxygen...I have the worst memory.

Miz- I still cant wait to try the Aveda- one day ill be off my pj diet

Anky also mentioned doing this with Mayo- cheap protein/moisture treatments are always good in my book

Default Re: Protein as Pre-Poo Treatment Results

I am going to give this a try. I am really working on my hair and trying to really make a change. I have to cut 2 inches and I am bombed about that. I have plenty of Keraphix that I dont use often because I am afraid of too much protein but I will give it a try. Keraphix is such a great product. I love it on my hair when I do use it. I will get to pre pooing! Thanks ladies.

Question, how long do you guys leave the protein conditioner on your hair? I will be trying this soon w/ my jar of ORS Mayo that's been collecting dust for about a year now.

How often do you guys do this? I was about ready to trash my ORS mayo until I read this. I used it last (conditioner) instead of using as a pre-poo and my hair was a hot mess.

I haven't tried ORS mayo yet but I was using the Keraphix protein reconstructor about every two weeks, sometimes three or four. I'm going to use it more often now, like every two washes.

Macherieamour or someone else can help you with your ORS mayo question better than I can.

In place of the hot towel, you can also use a heating cap. I purchase an electric one (for like 20 dollars). I really like it. Before this I would put my hair in a plastic cap and sit under the dryer like they do at salons. Either way works well.

This is the only way I know how to do a protein treatment. If I don't shampoo after using protein my hair would never detangle.

Default Re: Protein as Pre-Poo Treatment Results

For the hot steam towel- i just leave a large hand towel ( the one in between a wash cloth and a large regular towel, or a hair turban) under running water.

I slather the conditioner all over my dry un washed hair.

Then, I wring out the towel and twist it around my head.

I put a plastic cap over top.

Its kinda like an at home steam treatment.

But there are tons of ways other people do it. Using a hot towel out of the dryer or just a plastic cap under a hood dryer or electric cap

Do you use a plastic cap or not? For some reason I feel weird not using a plastic cap but if the results are good than I will try it.
