  • A stylist will then apply a straightening solution to the hair and leave it for 20-30 minutes. The cream is responsible for making the hair straight.

  • Wash off and then blow dry the hair and its done.

Immediately after the Hair Smoothing Treatment

  • Do not wet your hair for three days and also you are not supposed to tuck/pin/tie your hair in any way.
  • Salons will also advise you not to use hair oil for about 15 days post the smoothing process.
  • While sleeping keep your hair straight.

Three Days after the Hair Smoothing Procedure

  • After three days, you can shampoo your hair and leave the conditioner for longer than usual.
  • Avoid hot water while hair washes as it will strip the tresses of moisture.
  • Use toothed hair comb to clear the strands. DONOT use a hair brush.
  • Apply hair serum as this protects your hair from sun, dust, and pollution
  • Get hair spa done as that adds vitamins to your hair and replenishes the nutrients lost during the chemical treatment.

Side Effects

Some keratin products contain formaldehyde which can cause problems like a headache, skin rashes and teary eyes in one is continuously exposed and work with it regularly. Ensure you use a salon that is well ventilated. You can also try other products that swap out formaldehyde for mild ingredients. Search for the exact name of the product used in the salon and look for material safety information.
