Default Keg priming a pumpkin

Hey everybody happy thanksgiving to you all!
I was jut curious about something. I have been kegging for a couple of years and just started researching about priming when kegging. I made a pumpkin ale which tends to not hold a head for very long. This year i thought about priming it first then kegging it. Your thoughts?
Your response is appreciated,

Do you mean naturally carbonating in the keg?

I keg condition most of my beers. I add .75oz priming sugar/malt per gallon to two cups of water & boil for 4-5 min. Then cool in an ice bath before adding to my keg.
Purge the keg w/ CO2 then rack your beer to the keg.
I let it sit at room temp for about ten days then cold crash.
