Sometimes, even the curliest girls want stick-straight strands, which can easily be accomplished with chemical straightening treatments. However, you can't just go about your normal hairstyling routine after you get it treated. Here's what Allure magazine recommends.
1. Don't wash your hair right away after treatment. Wait a few days or even a week before you suds up. When it's time, use sulfate-free products, like DS Laboratories – Revita.COR Hair Growth Stimulating Conditioner, which won't get rid of the chemicals on your hair.
2. If you want to color your hair, do so after the straightening. This will ensure that the color doesn't rinse out during the chemical processing.
3. You don't need to use any heated styling products after a straightening treatment – your hair should look naturally straight. However, a flat iron and a blowdryer can make your hair a bit sleeker and smoother if that's the look you're going for. Leonor Greyl – Condition Naturelle will ensure that your tresses are protected.
