incorporate pre-shampoo treatments into your regimen, particularly if you're prone to dry ends. Pre-shampoo treatments (or "pre-pooing", for short) usually consist of applying a conditioner and/or oil to your hair and letting it penetrate for an hour or so before your regular shampoo wash. The benefit of prepooing is that it minimizes the stripping of moisture that can come with shampooing. Note: There is no need to apply your prepoo to your scalp; simply applying it to the hair, or even just the ends, is sufficient.
