Deep Conditioning Treatments on Dirty Hair

Am I the only one that likes to do my deep treatments before I shampoo or co-wash? I can't stand hopping in and out of the shower, and honestly I notice no difference when doing my DT after I wash my hair.
Who else prefers this strange method of treating their hair?

It is not strange. I do it. I know others who do.There is a school of thought that it is best to deep treat before the hair is swelled up with water and unable to absorb as much of the treatment. Aubrey Organics conditioners have instructions for deep conditioning on dry hair on the bottles and Shea Moisture's facebook page has instructions about how to use their Purification Masque in this way.

Thanks sagehen. Knowing that deep treatments before formally washing the is neither good or bad makes me breath easy. I think these rules on when to do what to your hair and quite forgets the individual nature of curly hair and all hair for that matter.

Hmm true. I would think that it is just as similar too when someone moisturises day to 2-3 hair when it's obvious the hair gets dirtier with each passing day. Meaning with that thought the hair would not be able to receiive moisture benefits.
Just a thought...

I have to pre-poo/DT this way. My clean hair hates oils and too much moisturizing product. This is the only way I can keep my hair in good condition. I must use the good stuff and then shampoo and rinse out, style. Once dry/styled, I can only use a miniscule amount of product on my hair.
Hey Auntcurly! My sentiments exactly. On another note, my friend MUST dt after or else her hair doesn't act right.

I see Nat's point, but I wash every 3 days or so and don't use heavy products because they weigh my hair down (I have fine, porous hair- after several days my hair very obviously needs some attention so I never have days upon days of buildup to worry about). I should have added that to my original response.

Ive been doing this for the last three years . My hair is thirsty do it works for me.

I usually prepoo on dirty hair, then wash and condition with a rinse out.
My prepoo is more about loosening my hair up prior to washing and leaving behind a layer of moisture if I'm doing a harsh shampoo, or drying ayurvedic treatment.

Yeahhhhhboi, Im on my smartphone!!!
I've been doing this for ages too. I also can't stand hopping in and out of the shower. I normally put my DT on dry hair in the evening, leave it on overnight and then shampoo and use a rinse out the next morning. Saves me a lot of time in terms of actually doing my hair, and works well for me.

Okay, since time is becoming an issue for me(and I hate the in and out of the shower routine), I need to start doing this. My question: Do you wet the hair to put the dt on? My hair is lo-po and I only wash once a week, so I might have some buildup and have the issue with penetration.
TIA

Also when I have something heavy in my hair like gel, I have to stick my head in the facet to rinse it out with water prior to DT my hair. That in my opininon is better than getting in and out of the shower, eww(pet peeve). The key is knowing if you benefit from this method if DT. Some people dont like to do it this way and that is a fact.
I hope you give it a go

I've been doing it for a month now and I love it. Yes I use up more conditioner but my hair sure does love it.
I've been adding oils to a cheap conditioner and then adding it to my dry dirty hair and OMG I'm in love. I do it every Wednesday now. Cuts down on detangeling for my hair.

Now, as I'm typing this, I have Shea Moisture's Purification Masque in my dirty hair. I'm using it as a pre-poo (I've seen YouTubers use it both ways, and Shea Moisture provides somewhat sketchy instructions on the label, which is annoying). I'm going to rinse it out after an hour, put my hair in big, giant twists, let it air dry tonite, apply my Bigen color tomorrow morning, shampoo that out...and deep condition on my freshly shampooed, damp hair.

I never use a pre-shampoo conditioner as my only conditioner.

I just did a henna treatment on dirty hair and I have to say I loved it.
