Overnight Oil Pre-Poo

After my trip to Cornell, in the mountains, my hair was feeling pretty dry.  I wanted to do some sort of overnight treatment, so I decided on an overnight oil pre-poo.  Since I am still on this Peppermint Oil kick, I was eager to mix up a concoction.


My mix included:
Peppermint Oil
Avocado Oil
Olive Oil 
Vitamin E Oil


I didn't drench my hair in the oil, because I didn't want to wake up with a mess, but I definitely used more than I normally would; I would say that I used enough to coat the hair shaft.  As I was applying my mixture, I made sure to massage the oil into my scalp as well.  I put a plastic cap on my head and tied a scarf around my head.  I figured that the heat would help the oil to penetrate as much as possible.


I woke up this morning and washed out the oil, and then continued with my normal wash/condition/deep condition routine.  My hair is very soft and is full of life.


An oil pre-poo can be a cheap alternative to a overnight deep conditioning treatment.  Chances are that you have oils in small amounts already.
