What Is Pre-Shampoo Treatment? What Is Pre-Shampoo Treatment? What Is Pre-Shampoo Treatment?

When it comes to taking care of your hair, you know how important it is to treat your strands with a whole lot of TLC. That’s especially true if you color your hair or use heat tools to style your strands on the regular—these two activities can cause your hair to feel a little, well, worse for wear if you don’t follow the right hair care routine.


Luckily, there are a lot of different kinds if of products to choose from to help pamper your strands: shampoos, conditioners, hair masks, leave-in conditioners, cleansing oils, hair creams, and the list goes on…and on and on and on. Seriously, the possibilities seem like they’re just about endless! Now, there’s another product making waves in the hair care world—and that would be pre-shampoo treatment.


Curious about what pre-shampoo treatment is and how it can potentially benefit your beautiful hair? Keep reading for the rundown on pre-shampoo treatments!



Pre-shampoo hair treatments can come in any number of formulations including butters, conditioners, hair masks, and hair oils. Depending on the particular product’s instructions, they are applied either to dry or wet hair before you cleanse with your normal shampoo and conditioner combo.



So now you know what a pre-shampoo treatment is, but why exactly should you consider using one? Well, the idea is that pre-shampoo treatments can help to remove excess styling products, dirt, and oil that can build up on your roots. Pre-shampoo treatments can also provide a surge of moisture to your tresses before you wash with shampoo. Sounds pretty neat, right?



Regardless of your hair type, you can look for a pre-shampoo treatment that suits your needs. There are formulas that can help manage frizzy hair, exfoliate buildup on your roots, and provide moisture. Look for one that best suits your hair care concerns.



As soon as you walk down the hair care aisle, you’ll quickly realize just how popular pre-shampoo treatments have become. With oils, butters, and creams to choose from, there are definitely a lot of options! If you have oily roots and dry ends, consider trying the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Extraordinary Clay Pre-Shampoo Mask. Apply the mask to your roots section by section, making sure to cover your entire head—do this on dry hair before you shampoo. Leave the pre-shampoo treatment on for five minutes, gently massaging it into your scalp when you rinse. It’s that easy! 

To get the most out of your pre-shampoo treatment mask, be sure to pair it with the following system of hair care products for optimal results.
