Post-Keratin Treatment Care: Keeping Your Hair Soft and Silky!

Hey Hair Lovers! Just had a fabulous keratin treatment and wondering how to keep that smooth, silky look going strong? I’ve got you covered with some super easy keratin maintenance tips. Let’s keep that hair shining! ✨

  1. Give Your Hair a Break: Hold off on washing your hair for at least 24 hours after your treatment. The longer you can wait, the more time the product has to work its magic. When it’s time to wash, use a sulfate-free shampoo and treat your hair to a pH-balancing Felps mask. Leave it in for 10-15 minutes, then rinse and style as usual.
  2. Avoid Getting Wet for a Day: Try to keep your hair dry for 24 hours post-treatment. This means no washing, no swimming, and try to keep sweating to a minimum. Got caught in a drizzle? Dry your hair quickly with a hairdryer.
  3. Space Out Your Washes: To keep that keratin goodness lasting longer, don’t wash your hair too often. Less frequent washing helps maintain the smooth, sleek benefits of the treatment.
  4. Choose the Right Products: Stick to hair care products that are made for post-keratin treatment care. These are specially formulated to keep your hair looking great for longer. Look for silicone-free and salt-free products. If you can, use products from the same brand as your treatment – they’re designed to keep your hair’s pH balanced.
  5. Planning a Hair Color Change?: If you’re thinking about a new hair color, wait at least two weeks before or after your keratin treatment.
  6. Protect Your Hair from Salt and Chlorine: Both can shorten the lifespan of your keratin treatment. If you do get exposed, make sure to rinse your hair thoroughly with fresh water.
  7. Be Gentle with Wet Hair: If you need to comb your hair while it’s wet, first use a detangling mist to make it easier and less damaging.
  8. Skip the Salty Sprays: Love those beachy waves? Avoid sprays that contain salt. Opt for a keratin-based spray to keep your style in place without harming your treatment.

Remember, using products specifically designed for keratin-treated hair really helps. Avoid salt and silicone in your shampoos and conditioners to keep your hair looking fabulous for longer.

Also, be cautious with oils like coconut or jojoba. While they make your hair feel soft, they require a lot of shampoo to wash out, which isn’t ideal after your treatment. Wait a couple of weeks before using them again.

The key to extending your keratin treatment’s effect is in how you care for your hair afterward. With the right products and care, you’ll be enjoying that smooth, sleek look for weeks to come! 💆‍♀️🌟💕
