Having your hair chemically straightened can look great however, if you do not take care of it, it can look dry and damaged. Here is how to take care of chemically straightened hair.
After your hair has been chemically straightened, wait 48 hours before you wash your hair. The chemicals need time to set. Then, once a week for the first month, apply a deep conditioning mask and cover your head with a shower cap to lock in heat.
When you sleep, use a satin pillow case, this will help protect your hair by preventing it from tangling.
When it comes to styling your hair, avoid using high heat blow dryers or curling irons. If you must use them then reduce the heat.
Try to avoid using hair spray or gel as they can dry out your hair.
If you want to colour chemically straightened hair, then wait 14 days before you do.
