Curlsmith Super Slip Pre-Wash Primer is a pre-shampoo treatment that helps detangle and protects the hair's natural moisture from being stripped out.



  • Preserves the hair moisture while clarifying
  • Protects the hair from being stripped out by strong cleansers
  • Helps strengthen the hair's protective barrier, the Microbiome
  • Has great slip to help detangle
  • Helps soothe and treat dry, itchy and flaky scalp
  • Stimulates follicles
  • Lightweight emulsion texture (it's not a conditioner)
  • Vegan, cruelty free, clean ingredients and curly girl friendly
  • Designed for all curls and texture types, this product is also suitable for straight hair
  • Primer can be used as part of the Curlsmith Microbiome Scalp System or on its own to protect the hair from harsh cleansers

Key Ingredients

  • Pre-biotics, nutritive compounds that feed the 'good bacteria' which form the skin's protective barrier, the Microbiome
  • Fermented Rice Water, which has been used for centuries in Asia as a hair treatment to keep the hair healthy, detangled and clean
  • Energizing blend of Ginger, Nettle, Dragon Fruit and Guarana

Formulated Without

  • Sulfates
  • Silicones
  • Drying alcohols

How To Use

Wet your hair thoroughly and apply the product directly onto the scalp before your shampoo, gently massaging it in. While the pre-biotics are working, make your way down the hair lengths, finger detangling until you get rid of all the knots. Leave on for 1 minute. Apply the Curlsmith Wash & Scrub Detox Pro-Biotic, directly on top of the primer, without rinsing. The Pre-Biotic Primer will nourish and protect your scalp while the Detox Pro-Biotic clarifies it.
