CN responds: When I have the time (not so much now, lol), I definitely pre-poo. Prior to getting in the shower, on dry hair, I apply a conditioner/oil mix. I use whatever I have on hand, nothing special and mix in Grapeseed or Olive Oil and a dollop of honey. I don a plastic cap and go about my business (no heat source… just my own body heat). I leave it in for 15-30 minutes prior to hopping in the shower for my regular routine.
