Ultimate Prepoo Recipe

Hola Queens,

I don’t know about you, but I need to plan my wash day from beginning to end at least a day before my wash day otherwise I feel conflicted and end up doing everything last minute and end up forgetting something. Due to the Self-Care July challenge (if you do not know what i am talking about and want to take part click here) I have been thinking what could I add to my Pre-poo that would better? Oil ! A great prepoo seems to always involve oil, it seems to be every naturalista’s answer when they face the question of their favourite prepoo.

As i mentioned on my last post, Aloe Vera + Fenugreek Seeds is my favourite prepoo & it never fails me for a moisture, strength, shine pick up.

The video is for demonstration purpose only. It’s how I do my usual Prepoo.

Hot Oil Treatment is amazing, and every hair needs it here and there. Curly and Coily hair is naturally dry AF & we need anything that will give our tresses long last moisture, isn’t it? Plus everyone has at least one type of oil at home which makes this super practical.

Benefits:

  • Strengths Hair
  • Adds Shine & luster
  • Reduces Breakage/ Damage
  • Less Split Ends
  • Promotes Growth
  • Reduces Dryness

What you need

  • Aloe Vera Leaf
  • Fenugreek Seeds
  • Water
  • Spray Bottle
  • Oil of choice – I used a mix of JBCO & Olive Oil
  • Aloe Vera Juice (optional)

You can use one oil or a mixture of your favourite oils.

Preparation

  1. Mix the fenugreek seeds, aloe vera juice & water in a spray bottle
  2. Leave the mixture to infuse for minimum 2 hours. I recommend leaving it for 6 hours.
  3. The fenugreek seeds will have sprouted.
  4. Warm up your oil/oils with warm water underneath.
  5. Cut the small spines out and cut the Aloe Vera in half and into smaller pieces (as shown in the picture above)
  6. Section your hair between 4-8 parts. I recommend 6 parts+ as it ensures every strand is coated.
  7. Apply the spray from roots to ends & detangle
  8. Apply the Aloe Vera from roots to ends concentrating in the roots and ends ( these need extra love)
  9. Apply the Oil from roots to ends concentrating on your ends
  10. Twist the section & proceed to the next
  11. Apply the Aloe Vera all over the scalp once you finished twisting all sections
  12. Apply plastic cap & allow the mixture to sit on your hair for minimum 30 minutes.

I left the prepoo for about 2 hours and I took it out, my hair feels and looks amazing. This will definitely be a prepoo for when I am feeling a little fancy because it does take longer to make and its an extra step but its worth it. Hair is feeling very hydrated & moisturised ain’t even it sis. My hair above that.

The curls were popping.

Next time I do this prepoo I will make sure to take some pictures and include it. I have none of that day only videos during. But you can see the level of moisture my hair has. I’m in love,

Thank you for reading this post.

Question : What is your favourite oil for your hair & why?

One thought on “Ultimate Prepoo Recipe

  1. I also have to plan my washday a day ahead. I hardly ever have an impromptu washday except I’m just cowashing my hair. My favourite oils are olive oil and avocado oil
