Default Do you prepoo before a co-wash?

I will be cowashing for the first time tonight. I was wondering if anyone here does a pre-poo first? thanks.

Yes I do.

Sometimes I prepoo with oils, sometimes I DC on dry hair then cowash... other times I don't prepoo at all.

I do sometimes. I pre-poo with Vatika Frosting or olive oil before co-washing.

Yup I'm pre-pooing right now; I pre-poo with a cheapy conditioner like Suave or v05 for about 2 hrs then follow up with co-washing....this method is a Godsend while stretching!

So are you gonna co-wash with the same conditioner that you pre-poo with or another? And are you gonna DC afterwards? If so, will it be the same conditioner again or another ?

I prepoo with oil anytime I'm going to wet my hair, doesn't matter if I plan to cowash or shampoo.

Now when I was trying to use up stuff I'd prepoo with all kinds of random mixes just so I could get rid of the things I didn't like.

I pre-poo before pooing or co washing.

Day before I clarify with V05 Kiwi & Lime conditioner with lime juice mixed in it. I then pre-pooed with amla oil, then I pooed with Amla Poo and co washed with V05 Moisture Milks. Did a mild protein DC followed with a moisture DC.

I'm going to co-wash with Aussie Moist, but sometimes I'll co-wash with the same V05 or Suave conditioner. Today I'm not going to DC, but if I were, I'd DC on dry hair (with Aubrey Organic WC or HSR) then co-wash

Hey OP you might want to add a poll to make it easier for you IMHO

I don't always pre-poo before co-washing, but if I have time yes I try to do that. Either with Vatika Frosting or coconut oil. I sometimes do it with EVOO.

Post Re: Do you prepoo before a co-wash?

This is a good question. I've always wondered this myself. When I co-washed for the first time ever a few days ago, I decided to turn the pre-poo into a DC on dry hair first, with heat for 30 minutes. My dc mix had a little olive oil mixed in, so it was pretty similar to what I normally do, before a wash. I then rinsed, and co-washed with a different conditioner. No shampoo, just water and conditioner. Stepped out of the shower, added leave-in, and a little serum, styled as usual. I let my hair air dry since I applied heat to it earlier for the DC. I really liked doing it this way; it saved time, and allowed me to condition my hair without using shampoo. I also didn't worry about rollersetting, going under the dryer, or silk wrapping my hair after the co-wash. I can see where co-washing can be done easily between shampoos, and if you DC and co-wash on the same day, you're killing two birds with one stone.

I pre-poo with VO5 mixed with EVOO or EVCO followed by co-wash. The extra oil help keeps my hair soft especially the new growth.

I used to pre poo before co washing.

If you are using oil or are heavy handed, the co wash may leave you a bit oily. Co washing doesn't clean like shampoo does.

If I want extra moisture when I co wash, I let the conditioner sit before I rinse it out. Depending on the type of conditioner used, you can get a nice deep condition or nice light moisturizing treatment AND a co wash... without build up and all in one step.

ITA. It just depends on what my hair needs at the time.

You might want to start out with just one step though. That way if you do/don't like it you will know why. Then try different products and/or steps as you go along. If you try several steps the first time and don't like, how will you know which product/step caused the issue? Just a suggestion. Good luck!

I know this is an older thread but I had to comment @ the bolded.

This is what I have started doing as of late and so far so good. I slather my Motions Moisture Plus with some Vatika oil onto my dry hair, cover with a plastic cap for about 1/2 hr and then while taking a shower rinse, add a lil more conditioner onto the wet hair and then rinse. I then proceed to air dry and wet wrap once I've put in my leave in and seal
