In the Philippines, where humidity and heat can make hair care challenging, keratin treatments are the secret weapon of many Filipinas looking to achieve a sleek, frizz-free, and manageable mane. HairMNL Studio provides high-quality services that cater to the needs of every hair type and texture. But the journey continues when you leave the salon - proper keratin treatment aftercare is equally essential. In this article, we guide you through the keratin treatment process and recommend the best products for keratin-treated hair available on HairMNL.com.
What is Keratin Treatment?
Keratin is a protein naturally found in our hair, skin, and nails. Keratin treatments replenish the hair's natural protein, straightening it and reducing frizz, giving you silky smooth and easily manageable hair.
At HairMNL Studio, we offer professional keratin treatments, applying a keratin hair-straightening product to your hair and then using the heat of a flat iron to seal it in. This process leaves your hair straight and shiny for about 2-2.5 months. View HairMNL Studio's menu of services here.
Keratin Treatment Aftercare: What You Need to Know
After getting a keratin treatment, the aftercare process plays a crucial role in maintaining your hair's health and ensuring the longevity of the treatment. Here's a rundown on how to take care of keratin-treated hair:
- Wait Before Washing: It's usually recommended to wait three to four days after your treatment before washing your hair.
- Use Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner: Sulfates can strip the keratin from your hair, shortening the lifespan of your treatment. Opt for sulfate-free options to protect your hair.
- Limit Chlorine Exposure: Chlorine can wash out the keratin, so limiting swimming in chlorinated water is best.
- Avoid Salt Spray: Salt spray can also strip keratin from the hair, so it's best avoided.
- Heat Styling: If you use heat styling tools, ensure you use a heat protectant to prevent damage.
