Happy Halloween, Everyone!!! The costumes are out, the vibe is spooky, and fall has finally arrived in Virginia! With all the costume ideas out there this year, I decided to not only have some fun at work, but to work a costume around a fabulous protective style: Paying homage to the iconic Janelle Monae, a little extra “umph” to the classic pomp transformed this work look into a perfectly fashionable (and work-appropriate) Halloween statement. How are you rocking your natural hair this Halloween?

This post has been a long time coming–like three months long time coming [insert shame face here]. But since I’ve slightly altered my regimen from the first time I experimented with the pre-poo, I’m going to summarize my review of the initial product combination I tried and update what my actual pre-poo regimen is today. What is a Pre-Poo? Why, I’m glad you asked! Pre-pooing refers to the process of applying oils and/or conditioners to the hair before shampooing. If your hair is low porosity like mine and has a hard time allowing moisture in, a heat source can be used to help the oils and/or conditioners (sometimes a combination of both) penetrate the hair. What Are the Benefits of Pre-pooing? Well, as long as you don’t use a stripping shampoo post pre-poo, the process allows the hair to retain more moisture even after shampooing. Depending on your hair type, this may allow you to (1) skip a deep conditioner if you’re in a rush or just feeling lazy…
There is one major problem with the natural hair movement. Whether it was an unwitting happenstance or a conscious effort by some, the natural hair movement has created a monolithic view of what it means to be natural.
