Pre-shampoos have found the spotlight and now some of us cannot live without them. But why is it?

Well, these are usually highly concentrated products, applied on the dry hair and scalp and we are supposed to leave them to stay for a long period of time so they can really act. Therefore, they have the time and means to do wonders on our hair.

The first piece of advice we give you is to start applying the product way before the time you want to shower. This way, you can do other things while the product acts. To sum up, it may appear a lot of work, but the results are worth it! A balanced and purified scalp or nourished hair fibers are just a pre-shampoo away from you.

What is a pre-shampoo treatment?

A pre-shampoo treatment is a product developed to be applied before shampooing, on dry hair. Usually oil or balm, these products can have different actions as helping to balance the scalp or moisturizing the hair fibers. However, they all have the goal of leaving the hair softer and healthier.

How long should I leave a pre-shampoo?

Well, it really depends on the product. Most products recommend at least 20/30 minutes. Also, depending on the product goal, it might be applied on the scalp or on the hair fibers. Nevertheless, you should always check the directions of use before starting.
