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…

2014 has been a wonderful year. D’aller Naturel made its debut on May 1, 2014 from a simple natural hair and health journey documentation to a budding natural hair care, health and beauty resource (and everything in between!). I want to thank each and every one of you for your support, your insight and your encouragement over the last 7 months. Here’s a look back at some of your favorite posts of 2014!

Do the rules of natural hair care confuse you? One minute, you’re reading “no shampoo! low manipulation!” and the next you’ve found a blog featuring a naturalista who does twistouts daily, shampoos weekly, and has hair down to her butt! We all know the cardinal rule: No heat. Welp. Now even that’s changed.
I have been invited to speak as a panelist at Delaware’s 3rd Annual Naturally Redefined Natural Hair & Holistic Health Expo on September 20, 2014 at Clayton Hall Conference Center in Newark, DE. I, along with other bloggers/vloggers will be part of a panel discussing natural hair care.
Hellooooo Naturels! I received a question regarding how to make a decent flax seed gel at home. I mean, far be it from me to keep the wonders of natural hair care to myself, so I was happy to respond. As I was formulating a reply, I figured that I should share the recipe with the rest of you! So without further adieu, here’s a fairly typical DIY flax seed recipe that’s pretty easy to prepare. It can be customized by adding essential oils of your choice: What You’ll Need: 1/4 cup whole flax seeds 2 cups water 1 cheap pair of pantyhose (the 50 cents type from the drug store that come in a little plastic ball) 2 – 3 small containers to house the gel when hot & 1 air tight container to store the gel once made tongs Essential oils (optional) Instructions: 1.
