pre shampoo treatments are an all day day/weekend type activitiy. I do them maybe every other month because the whole process takes so dang long.
For my regular shampoos I use elucence or devabrown no poo or I mix curlisto's chocolate shampoo with some conditioner. There are a few good ones out there that I discover from time to time, but I think for laziness sake, I keep going back to the same usual suspects.
I dont have enough hair to make sectioning worthwile. I just take my time and rinse thoroughly
For a serious shampoo, poo or no, I section in fours. If I'm just rinsing through to re-wet for styling, I sometimes work with just two sections - hair divided down the middle. Because I have 65-70% shrinkage in some areas and my hair is fairly long, sectioning is essential for me to clean the scalp without having a gang of tangles.
I used to do hot oil treatments before shampooing as part of my routine. I have'nt done any pre-shampoo anythings in a good while but I've been thinking of trying one by J.F. Lazartigue.
Since my BC was just last month, I can just run the shampoo through. I'll either use Kemi Oyl Moyst No Soap Shampoo or Paves No Sulfates Allowed.
ETA: I do prepoo treatments when I actually have time to do them. >.< I need to get back into the habit of doing them with my weekly wash.

My hair is thick, so when I do use shampoo I probably should section but I just don't have that kind of time in my life. I make sure I rinse well, and that's about it for me.
