Beautiful, lustrous hair is an essential element of our personality. It gives us the confidence to face a tough day at work, helps us get noticed at social events, and adds a sparkle to our smiles, too! Caring for our hair has become easier today, thanks to the various hair care products and treatments available in the market, the most popular being the keratin treatment. It smooths the hair and is considered a blessing for every hair type.
Women with wavy, curly, or frizzy hair vouch for the keratin treatment that makes their lives easier. It makes the hair strong and manageable, reduces the appearance of split ends, and gives the hair a natural, glossy look.
However, caring for Keratin-treated hair is important if you wish to enjoy its gorgeous effects. Knowing the haircare procedure to be followed after a keratin treatment will help you look after your beautiful tresses better.
We bring you all the information you need about keratin treatment and after-treatment hair care. We also talk about the popular GK Hair products that assist you in the maintenance of your hair, whichever type it may be.
What is Keratin treatment?
Keratin is a protein that is present in our hair, skin, and nails. It is also found in products that promise to strengthen your hair. However, Keratin treatment involves the application of glyoxylic acid to straighten the hair. It is worked through the hair, blow-dried, and sealed in with a flat iron to maintain smooth hair for 3 to 6 months.
This treatment works for every hair type and is usually opted for by women who have wavy, curly or frizzy hair. One of its biggest advantages is that it reduces the need to blow dry or straighten the hair regularly. Moreover, with regular use and after-treatment hair care, there is a marked improvement in the quality of your hair.
Post Keratin Treatment Hair Care
Keratin treatments last for a few months. But, caring for one’s hair, especially for the first three weeks to maintain its smoothness, is crucial. There are several dos and don’ts advised by hair care professionals, following which you can maintain the glossy, frizz-free look of your crowning glory.
Here’s how to look after keratin-treated hair for the first three weeks after the treatment:
- Avoid washing your hair for 24-48 hours after the treatment. This helps the keratin treatment to get perfectly absorbed into your hair.
- Use a good-quality shower cap to prevent your hair from getting wet.
- Avoid saunas, spas, swimming, and steam showers. Water in any form is best avoided during the first three days.
- Choose your shampoo and conditioner carefully to keep the hair looking fresh and enhance the treatment. Always pick sulfate-free shampoos, such as GK Hair shampoo and conditioners, that do not contain alcohol, parabens, and sulfate. These have been specially formulated for post keratin treatment hair care.
- Do not lay your head on a cotton pillowcase, as it will absorb the moisture from your hair and leave it dry and frizzy. Silk or satin pillowcases work best as they reduce the friction between hair and don’t absorb moisture, either.
- Avoid any other hair treatments, such as bleaching or colouring, for three weeks after the keratin treatment.
