7 Hair Products That Work Amazingly Well as Pre-Shampoo Treatments

We're all about a good post-hair-wash treatment mask or deep conditioner, but did you know that you can also benefit from conditioning your hair before shampooing?

There are a ton of treatment options to choose from, whether you're looking at a standard conditioner or a natural oil. Read ahead to check out some of our favorite products to use before shampooing.
