Keratin treatments are a way to always look fresh out of the salon. And yes! You will have manageable hair every day. This treatment enhances the body and the texture of your hair by fixing the frizz and unruly flyaways. How does this treatment do that? A keratin treatment works on the principle of locking keratin in your hair strands under the cuticle layer with heat. However, this treatment is not permanent as our hair is constantly growing. But we can maintain it for a longer period of time. All you need to do is take some precautions before and after the treatment.
The First 24 Hours Are Critical!
The first rule is you should not wash your hair for 48 hours after you have had a treatment. Don’t disturb the texture and minute things like pulling your hair in a bun should be avoided. A hair pin might crease your hair. Avoid any physical activity so that your hair stays free of any sebum or sweat, as it can disrupt the treatment. If your hair gets oily in the first 24 hours, don’t wash your hair even then. In short, do not disturb the style that was made for your hair for the first 48 hours.
Maintain The Treatment In The Long Run
Aftercare products do matter and can help in prolonging the keratin treatment in Australia. GK Hair also has several high-end products that can save you from salon visits every 3 months. Go for a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner since this will be something you will use at least 2 to 3 times a week. It is the foundation of maintaining your treatment. Sulfate-in-a-shampoo rips off the moisture, which will, over time, make your hair frizzy. They also can wash away the keratin, which was sealed in your hair strands.
