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:
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.
