NaturallyCurly user CurlyConundrum shared her recipe for a DIY pre-poo, and it’s so simple we can’t believe we didn’t think of it ourselves! With just two ingredients, you can “deliver a blast of moisture to your scalp and hair.” She finds that it helps to detangle curls, while protecting hair from being stripped of its natural oils.

What You’ll Need

  • coconut oil 1 – 2 tbsp (olive oil works too”>
  • peppermint oil 5 – 10 drops


Thirty minutes prior to showering, wet your hands with the mixture and rub it into your scalp and hair from roots to end. You can also leave it on overnight for a conditioning treatment.

If you try this recipe out for yourself, be sure to leave a review and let other curlies know how it worked for you.
