Pre-Poo..Don't Mind If I do!

Pre-Poo..Don't Mind If I do!

Pre- poo your curly hair to get a

next level clean!


Hair growth is directly affected by the health of your scalp.  Brittle tresses, breakage prone strands, hair loss and stunted growth are all attributed to the health and cleanliness of your scalp. One way to ensure your scalp is clean and in perfect condition to thrive is to do a  pre-poo on wash days.


What is a pre-poo?

A pre- poo is when you use a natural oil or an oil blend to break down dirt and excess oil prior to shampooing.  Adding a natural oil blend like our Rizos Curls Nourish Oil to your scalp, while your hair is dry, and massaging it into your scalp with our Rizos Curls Pink Scalp Brush allows the properties of the oils to break down and degrade the sebum, natural oil and product build up that accumulates on your scalp between wash days. This layer of debris can make new hair growth a challenge as a singular strand does not have the strength to push through this blanket of gunk across your scalp. 
Adding a pre-poo to your regimen is not as popular as other hair and scalp maintenance. 
It is often forgotten or misunderstood.
Let's clarify ( No pun intended!)
Think of face make up remover. When you have a full face of make up..mascara, foundation, eye shadow, lipstick..In order to remove the make up off your face you can not simply wash with a cleanser. Cleanser only, will remove minimal make up and just smear the product leaving much of the residue visibly behind on your skin. When you add a make up remover, one with oil content, you will see the make up slowly break down and separate from your skin with each swipe of make up remover.  The oil is the magic ingredient!  Same goes for a pre-poo!


How to do a pre-poo?

As mentioned, you simply add drops of Rizos Curls Nourish Oil to your scalp and dry hair. A little goes a long way with oil, so start with a few drops and add additional drops as needed. Massaging the oil into the scalp. Cover head with a shower cap and allow the oil to penetrate the build up for 10-15 mins or overnight. Wash with Rizos Curls Hydrating Shampoo and rinse as usual. Continue with your wash day routine. Pre-poo is an option to be done as often as needed. Those with naturally oily hair may choose to pre-poo every wash day, as others may do it 1x a month as part of scalp maintenance. 



🌸Rizos Tip🌸: Want a squeaky clean scalp?

After you pre-poo with the Rizos Curls Nourish Oil, use the Rizos Curls Detox Scalp Scrub to gently sluff off all the dirt, oil, flakes and build up the pre-poo has loosened.
