Keratin Smoothing Treatment Do’s and Don’ts: How to Make the Most of Your Treatment

Today, we’re talking all about keratin hair treatment do’s and don’ts. This keratin smoothing treatment is a gamechanger that will give you straight, silky and soft hair. On top of gorgeous locks, it also allows you to save time and money with a less complicated styling routine, which for many is a huge way to rock their preferred style without the constant blowouts.

Once the keratin smoothing treatment has settled in, it’s important to keep in mind certain keratin smoothing treatment do’s and don’ts that apply to the first few days after you get the treatment done. One wrong move can ruin the effects, so it’s important to know what will affect your hair, and how to avoid those mistakes. Read on to check out some of our keratin hair treatment do’s and don’ts:


1. Keep your hair clean and dry.

Don’t get your hair wet that means 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 styling your hair might leave kinks or curls in your strands. This rule even includes wearing glasses that will press 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 extra love into your wash and care routine. The beauty of this treatment is that it does all the styling for you!
