Pre-shampoo treatments

Pre-shampoo treatments are being launched by several companies (Kingsley elasticizer, Kerastase soin premier Therapiste, and now Tresemme makes one). My hair reacts very well to these. When I use them, can I skip the rinse-out conditioner after the shampoo since my hair does not tangle, and apply a light leave-in, or do I need the rinse-out? My hair is untreated but fine and prone to breakage.


  • When it comes to questions like this, there is no definitive answer based on science. It's more about what feels right for your hair. 

    If using a pre-shampoo treatment and a light leave in provides enough conditioning for your hair type, then I say skip the rinse out. If you find your doesn't feel conditioned enough, then you should probably add a rinse out back in to your routine.
