Default Re: Add Olive Oil to Shampoo

I have done this and my hair came out so silky, but I don't use shampoo anymore. I use shampoo bars, so I just pre-poo with coconut oil beforehand.

Adding oil(s) to the shampoo eliminates the pre poo method, plus it saves time. Any non-moisturizing shampoo can be converted to a moisturizing shampoo by adding oil(s), lotion, body cream, skin butter, and conditioner to it.

Some of the same ingredients can be added to conditioners.

Co-signing...I add olive oil to my Biolage Condish when I get 6-7 weeks post on a 8-9 week stretch. It makes ahuge difference in softening the hair and making it more manageable.

I add castor oil to my shampoo from time to time to keep my NG soft and to enhance the moisturizing effect of the shampoo.
