Is Hot Oil Treatment Better Than Prepoo?

Every pre shampoo step contributes to moisture retention therefore prepoo and hot oil treatments, though different, both provide the hair with protection against the impact of shampoo as well as retention of moisture.

The question a reader posed was whether hot oil treatments are better than prepoo. Another wanted to know if hot oil treatment is faster to do compared to prepoo.

The answers to these questions depend on several factors. If you don't heat up your oil but sit under the hooded dryer for 5 minutes on medium to high heat, the oil gets absorbed faster. Coconut oil has become the go to prepoo and hot oil treatment to prevent hygral fatigue. The heat will allow faster absorption of the oil during the heating process.

On the other hand, if the oil is preheated before application, the penetration is equally good. So, which one takes less time?

I'll go for hot oil treatment since preheated oil works faster too. With prepoo, you may not have to time to sot under a hooded dryer or any form of heat so you will have to leave it for a couple of hours.

That's my take though. What's your view?
