What is the best way to sleep after keratin treatment?
You can sleep however you want, but we recommend that you keep your head elevated on a pillow with silk or satin pillowcase to avoid crushing your hair. On the other hand, if it makes you feel less anxious, you can definitely sleep on your back with your hair spread out!
Make sure your hair is straight below your head when you climb into bed. After that, carefully place your head on your pillow so that your hair is flat. For the first three days following a keratin treatment, sleep on your back. Your hair could become wrinkled or frizzy if you sleep on your side or stomach.
Keep your hair straight while sleeping: Right after the rebonding procedure, you need to be very cautious for the initial three days. You must keep your hair straight when you are sleeping, put them in a dangling position, pointing towards the floor. Make sure your hair does not get trapped underneath your head.
- DO wait 72 hours before shampooing.
- DO wear hair down at all times.
- DO blow-dry and flat iron hair if hair gets wet during the first 72 hr period.
- DO style your hair with a blow-dryer and brush during the 72 hrs if desired.
- DO put hair in a shower cap when bathing.
Keratin treatment typically takes two to four hours in the salon. It starts with a hair wash and conditioner. After a rough dry, the formula is applied to the whole head. The setting time lasts for about 30 minutes, after which the hair is ironed to straighten it.
Ideally, you should wait 3-4 days after your treatment before washing your hair. This allows the keratin to set and bond properly with your hair. If you absolutely must wash your hair sooner than that, it's best to wait at least 12 hours.
- Avoid making any impressions on the hair from clips, ponytail holders, hats, or sunglasses.
- Resist the urge to tuck your hair behind your ears.
- No up-dos with bands or clips.
- No braids.
- At night, sleep with hair loose.
Why Is It Difficult To Tie Straight Hair After A Keratin Treatment? A keratin treatment needs at least three days to fully take effect. You must relax at this period and refrain from any manipulation that can obstruct the procedure. It is never advised to pull, tug, or use accessories.
Swimming in chlorinated water or salt water (such as a pool or the ocean) can cause the results of a keratin treatment to wear off sooner. You should use shampoos and conditioners that are free of sodium chloride and sulfates because these chemicals can strip away the effects of the treatments.
Sleep On A Silk Or Satin Pillowcase. Prevent frizz and status by sleeping on a silk or satin pillowcase. The softness of both silk and satin eliminate the friction between your hair and the pillow (a similar idea to wrapping your hair) and can help keep your hair looking fresh and less slept-on in the morning.
What not to do after keratin treatment?
Avoid getting your hair wet for the first 72 hours after the keratin treatment. Use a shower cap when showering, and avoid swimming, saunas, steam showers, etc. hold your hair back even while washing your face or brushing your teeth. If it's monsoon, always be prepared with a raincoat with a loose hood and umbrella.
Yes, but if you wait until after you do the treatment you should wait at least 2 to 3 weeks. Can you do the treatment on top of relaxed hair? Yes, you can do the treatment over any previously relaxed hair.
After the treatment, do not get hair damp or wet for 72 hours. Do not dent the hair for 72 hours. This includes up-dos, ponytails, braids, hairbands, sunglasses on the head, hair accessories and tucking the hair behind the ears. Wash less frequently using lukewarm/cool water.
Generally speaking, it is okay to use heat styling tools on your hair post keratin treatment, whether that be blow dryers, a curling iron, or a flat iron. This can be done as soon as the product is washed out of the hair.
