One of the best ways to do this is by getting a keratin hair smoothing treatment. Contact a professional as this is a chemical hair treatment. One big benefit of this is it can last for months in many cases. Keep reading for more information about this so you can decide if this would be right for you.
Keratin Hair Smoothing Treatment Process
The stylist will use enough keratin hair smoothing treatment to completely straighten hair. If you have curls and want to keep them, this hair smoothing treatment can still work for you. Instead of straightening hair, it can be used to loosen and relax your curls so you can still have curly hair without frizz.
The hairstylist will wash your hair when you arrive at the salon. They will then apply the keratin hair smoothing treatment while your hair is still wet, or they will dry it first. This depends on the type of hair you have. No matter if they apply it when the hair is wet or dry, they put enough keratin in your hair so that every strand is saturated. When finished, they leave the keratin in for a certain amount of time. How long it sits depends on how frizzy your hair is and how straight you want it to be.
When the stylist finishes with the smoothing treatment and styles your hair, there are things you must do at home to keep your hair looking great. Ask the hairstylist how long you need to wait to wash your hair. In many cases, this may be a couple of days or more. Washing it too early can reverse the treatment and you will have frizzy hair again. This will result in a lot of wasted time and money.
Ask the hair stylist for the best type of shampoo to use after you can start washing your hair again. Sulfate-free shampoo is often recommended as sulfates can damage the keratin and cause it to break down much faster. The stylist may ask you to wash your hair less often after the treatment.
The hairstylist can give you many tips on keeping your hair straight longer so you can enjoy frizz-free hair. Reach out to a hairstylist for more information on keratin hair smoothing treatments.
For me, summer is a busy season. During this beautiful, warm time of the year, I like to go to the beach, play with my dog outside, go swimming, and engage in other fun outdoor activities. Because I spend more time outside during the summer months, having a low maintenance hairstyle is crucial. I prefer to keep my hair shoulder-length at this time. In doing so, I can put my hair up in a ponytail. However, because my hair isn’t extremely long, it won’t get weighed down by stifling humidity. If you like to spend your days in the great outdoors when the weather is warm outside, consider visiting a salon near you in order to get a fun, new hairstyle. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best haircuts for outdoor enthusiasts, no matter the season.
