There are women all over YouTube trying this pre-poo treatment saying that the results have led them to have longer hair within 24 hours.
I am going to be honest and say as I watched each video my skepticism was on level 10 and as each lady showed their results the next day my level of doubt wavered as I wondered if this thing really worked.
The treatment is protein based with coconut oil and eggs being the primary ingredients. Here is the recipe according to one YouTuber Maryam Hampton who decided to give this treatment a shot herself:
4 Tablespoons of grapeseed oil
RINSE OUT NEXT DAY
Watch Maryam try it:
According to Maryam and every other YouTuber who tried the recipe, the results are longer hair over night which is pretty surprising considering everything we know about hair growth and how the process works.
My theory is that the protein treatment smooths the cuticles of the strand causing it the hair to stretch a bit. The reason protein treatments strengthen your hair is because the molecules patch up any damage your hair may incur through manipulation and environmental exposure.
Egg protein particles are too big to penetrate the hair strand but they are great for smoothing the outside layers of your hair making it a very effective treatment.
If you are still skeptical I encourage you to try it, and once you do come back and let me know how it worked for you. At the end of the day, it is a great treatment for your hair especially if you think your hair strands need strength.
Here is the original video that everyone watched to get the recipe:
