I love DIY beauty products because A) It saves money and B) you can customize your treatment. So when I read about the benefits of prepooing, I created the perfect treatment for me.
Prepooing is


  • 1 - 2 - Tablespoon of olive oil or coconut oil
  • 5 - 10 - Drops of peppermint oil


Using a spoonful of coconut oil or olive oil, mix in 5 or so drops of peppermint oil. Get your hands wet with the mixture and massage into your scalp. Make sure to rub the mixture through to the end of your strands. Find this and more at www.CurlyConundrum.com.

This pre-poo is seriously amazing! Every other pre-poo I have tried left my hair feeling crispy, but this one is golden. My 2C-3A curls are bouncy and beautiful. I can't wait for my next shampoo! Will recommend this to ALL my curly girls!

Wow, I love this it's perfect! I recently have been experiencing knotty and dry hair ( thanks humidity!). And I brought a real crappy shampoo and conditioner with makes my hair bleurgh!. so I thought that trying this might help. Boy did it ever! even with crappy shampoo, my hair is healthy, shiny and soft and everything in between! Smells great, it's flawless! But the down side was that it was a little expensive. But it does my hair a treat. Highly recommend

This worked so well! My 2C-3A hair is curlier then it has been in weeks! I think my hair was just really dry, but this moisturized my hair really well. I would definitely recommend this!

I have actually started adding peppermint into my deep conditioners as well. I just ordered some extra virgin coconut oil and it should be coming today! I can't wait to try this tonight!

I just used this pre-poo. I love it my scalp feels oh so wonderful and my whole room smells great! I have washed and now doing deep conditioning mask and my scalp is still tingling as I type this. I had lovely little coils once I rinsed. I love it! And as an added bonus I found store right near my home to get my oils from versus online. Thanks for sharing!
