Keratin treatment is a lifesaver for those who want an easy care treatment that can be styled immediately. The effect of keratin treatment allows you to have a good hair day all day long. It smoothes curls, makes your hair very shiny and soft, and gives it a defensive layer that prevents damage to the environment all day long. Basically, keratin makes your hair the best version of itself and keep it that way for a long time.
Keratin treatments may be a bit expensive, but they are definitely worth it and can definitely last longer with proper care. Instead of weeks, you can continue your keratin treatment for months! Very good news for your hair and purse. Your hair care regime not only determines how long your keratin treatment lasts, but it also has an important impact on how well your hair looks through the treatment.
Here are things to do in your keratin treatment hair care regime to ensure that it lasts for as long as it can:
Wash Your Hair Less
First, do not wash your hair for 3 days when you first receive the keratin treatment. If possible, we recommend extending this to a week. However, if you are allowed to rinse your hair again, don't just wash it often!
You don't have to wash your hair as often as the protective layer that keratin gives to your hair will make it, so that environmental build up won’t stick onto your hair. If your hair is manageable and basically already styled, you will need less styling equipment to tame your hair. This means less product build up.
The less products build up, the less time you have to wash your hair. Your keratin treatment will surely profit from less washing, and will last much longer than if you rinse your hair very often.
Use a Premium Quality, Sulfate-Free Gentle Shampoo
If you don't wash your hair too much, that means you have to count as you wash your hair! Do not use cheap shampoos that contain sulfate. Instead, use a premium quality shampoo, “Cadiveu professional” that removes hair buildup without any harsh detergent that can remove the keratin coating.
A shampoo like the Cadiveu’s Brasil Cacau Extreme Repair Shampoo would be perfect for this as it cleanses away buildup effectively, leaving your hair fresh and clean while still being a mild and sulfate-free formula that won’t mess with your keratin-treated hair.
Avoid Heat Styling
Taking a keratin treatment means that your hair is basically styled every day without doing much. It also means that in order to keep it that way, you have to sacrifice some things like: heat styling. Avoid using heat styling tools like curling irons and curling irons, as your hair is already pretty combable and looks good on its own. To dry your hair, go for the cool settings of your blow dryer. This will last your keratin treatment for much longer.
Less Styling Products
Again, keratin treatments ensure that your hair looks good on its own and stays that way all day long. This means you don't have to use too many styling products. Creams, gels and oils should be used sparingly, even if used. By reducing the number of products used for hair, you will avoid heavy buildup in your hair. This makes it much easier to wash your hair with a gentle or mild shampoo, reducing the need for frequent washing and extending the life of your keratin treatment.
Avoid Touching Your Hair
Our hands and fingertips are seemingly dirty. It is one of the filthy parts of the body and it generates a lot of water and sebum. Frequent touching of the hair with your hands will make it much faster to get dirty or greasy. Avoid touching your hair to keep it fresh and clean so you don't have to rinse it often.
Stop Using Heavy Hair Oils
Hair oil is a wonderful beauty secret and a luxury session, but it's one of the things you have to give up during your keratin treatment. Hair oil puts a strain on the hair and is difficult to wash off. Up to 23 shampoos may be needed to completely wash off in a single hair oil session, which is not well suited for keratinized hair. Hair oils are also intended only for those who want to regain the natural moisture of their hair. With keratin treatment, the protective outer coating traps moisture in the hair, prevents moisture penetration and eliminates the need to oil the hair. If you want to use hair oil for aesthetic reasons, you can use a very small amount on the edge of the hair with Cadiveu’s acai oil. It makes your hair much brighter and softer, but be sure to use only a few drops. It gives enormous hydration and energy to the hair scalp. It offers a protective shield around the hair.
Use a top-notch hair serum
Instead of styling your hair with salt sprays, hairsprays, or mousses, you can use a Cadiveu’s keratin serum that are perfect for keeping your locks happy and healthy. The Brasil Cacau Shine Serum forms a protective shield on the hair that aids remove the frizz and acts as a conditioning agent and offers instant shine.
Don’t Towel Dry Your Hair
If you are familiar with the curly girl's method, you already know the disadvantages of drying your hair with a towel. Regular towels are usually made of terry cloth, which is highly absorbent and is ideal for drying the skin, but it can be a burden on the hair. Drying your hair with a terry towel will increase friction, curling and wrinkling, making it unsuitable for keratin treatments.
Instead of a terry towel, use a soft, absorbent microfiber towel to gently stroke your hair. This effectively absorbs excess water in your hair without giving friction that destroys your keratin treatment.
Use a Boar Bristle Brush
Keratin treatments are designed to maintain hair styling and smoothness, but they can still look tangled or messy. In this case, avoid brushing with hard hair that can lead to rubbing and breakage. Use a soft-haired boar brush to gently loosen and straighten your hair without causing rubbing or rubbing keratin treatments. Boar bristles also helps to add shine and suppleness to the hair.
Don’t Style Your Hair
Avoid a ponytail during the first week of keratin treatment. Strange wrinkles may appear. Styling the hair after the first 12 weeks is technically acceptable, but it is still the best option to avoid it as much as possible. Avoid putting your hair in buns, ponytails, up hair, and other hairstyles during your keratin treatment. This ensures that your hair stays in good shape and does not get wrinkles or borders that ruin your keratin treatment.
Keratin treatments are a truly ideal solution for most people who love to wake up like this way of life. Your hair requires such minimal styling and still looks great. It is very important to make sure that it lasts so that you do not need to be treated very often and your hair can always look great.
