I was browsing a hair forum and discovered hair has its own talk…
I kept seeing words like EVOO, JBCO, Prepoo, …saying to myself “What are they talking about” lucky for me they had a link where I could decode some of this talk..
So I thought I’d share a few of the words with you..
DC – Deep Condition
ACV – Apple Cider Vinegar
EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
EVCO – Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
JBCO – Jamaican Black Castor Oil
Prepoo – Preparing your hair prior to shampooing. You do this by adding a moisturizing conditioner or natural oils into the hair . You can do this overnight or 30-40mins before you shampoo. This helps keep the moisture in your hair after you shampoo or clarify. Prepooing helps keep that moisture in.
Cowashing – Washing your hair with conditioner instead of shampoo. This helps to put moisture back in the hair without stripping the hair of its natural oils.
Deep conditioning – Deep conditioning is a nice treat for those with chemical relaxers, colored, dry, brittle, damaged hair. Deep conditioning with a conditioner specifically forumulated for conditions similar to the ones already listed will help revive dull lifeless hair thus giving it more strength, elasticity, moisture, softness, and shine. It is a really good way of replenishing lost moisture leaving it less prone to breakage and unmanagability. It’s good to deep condition at least 1x per week.
Moisturizing – Applying a moisture based product to dry hair without washing it out. You can use a water-based or cream based moisturizer 1-2x per day. This helps to prevent breakage and increase elasticity in the hair.
Sealing – Using a natural oil to lock in the moisture after you’ve moisturized the hair i.e. Coconut Oil, Castor Oil, Safflower Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil. By using an oil over the moisturizer will allow your hair to stay moisturized longer.
