A pre-shampoo treatment can be described as the icing on the cake of hair care. It is a process whereby you apply certain products to your hair (e.g. hair conditioner, natural oils, humectants, butters and so on) prior to washing it so that your hair is extra conditioned and more manageable. This treatment helps the hair to withstand the harshness of the shampoo and fortifies and strengthens it. Although it may be not be viewed as an absolutely necessary step, it however promotes longer and healthier hair.

Recipe No. 1


Small bowl/container/spray bottle
A tablespoon
1 – 2 tablespoons of instant (rinse out) hair conditioner
These conditioners are identified by their runny consistency they are not thick like deep conditioners. They usually have stated on their directions that it should be left on the hair for about 3-5 minutes and rinsed out.

1 -2 tablespoons of oil
There are many natural oils that can be used such as olive oil, sweet almond oil or Wura’s Secret Hair Growth Oil.

Add both ingredients in a bowl and mix together properly till the mixture is well blended.

Part hair in four sections and apply the mixture onto each section of hair making sure that the mixture is rubbed in properly. Cover hair with a plastic cap. Leave on hair for about 10 minutes with heat (i.e. under a hair dryer) or about 20 minutes or more without heat (depending on how long you can stand it). Rinse off, then begin the washing process.
