So you are snowed in and you need to shampoo your hair? Why not consider a "pre-shampoo" hair treatment? The treatments go on dry, lightly soiled hair; no processing cap necessary. If you have oily hair, then you do not need it! Examples of treatments: 1) Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment contains nuts and is great for coarse or thick hair. It smells like a mixture of coffee beans and incense. It works great as an overnight treatment. It can be purchased at Sephora and a few other places. 2)Minardi Fortifying Pre-wash Therapy is a great treatment for fine or thin hair. You can apply generously on dry hair and leave on for about an hour. 3) If you have a favorite "Hot Oil" Treatment, then the same principle applies . . . weigh it down and shampoo it out.
All of the "pre-shampoo" treatments should be shampooed out. They are designed to weigh the hair down while nourishing the hair shaft when you have dry hair. Then you can shampoo, condition, and style as you normally would. You should see a shinier coat of hair!
