Once you’ve gotten a keratin smoothing treatment, get ready for the hair (and haircare routine) of your dreams!

1. Keep it clean and dry.

Don’t get it wet. Don’t wash it in the shower, go easy on the workouts so you don’t sweat it out, stay out of the rain if it’s overcast outside, and definitely don’t go swimming. Seriously. Be very careful after getting a keratin smoothing treatment. The protein treatment needs time to settle in, and you don’t want to wash it out.

2. Wear your hair down.

No ponytails, fancy updos, buns or braids for the first few days. Your hair is sensitive during this time and any way you style your hair might leave kinks or curls in your strands. This rule even includes wearing glasses that will press up against your hair, using a headband to pull your hair back, or tucking your hair behind your ears.

3. Prioritize your wash and care routine.

Go easy on styling products and focus on finding the right shampoo and conditioner. This is the time to put some love into your wash and care routine. We suggest the Suave Keratin Infusion Smoothing Shampoo and the Suave Keratin Infusion Smoothing Conditioner to promote extra smoothness and shine. The beauty of this treatment is that it does all the styling for you!
