How to Take Care of Straightened Hair

To maintain straightened hair, right hair care is essential. If you take right care of your straightened hair you can keep your hair healthy and prevent hair problems. Read on to find some beauty tips for taking care of straightened hair.

Have you recently straightened your hair? If so, you might be wondering what is the best way to take care of it. Hair straightening is a costly procedure, and once you have done it, it is best to take proper precautions and care. Here are some tips to maintain and take care of straightened hair.

Immediate Hair Care after Straightening

Ok, so you have finally done it. You always wanted to straighten your hair and finally you got it done. Your hair looks gorgeous and you just can not stop admiring it. You have just returned home from the salon and can not stop looking at the mirror.
You have decided that you are going to do your best to take care of your hair now. Firstly remember that, do not wash your hair for 3 days after chemically straightening it. This can cause some of the waviness and curliness to return.
Try your best to prevent water from touching your hair. Also avoid wearing clips or tying your hair with a rubber band. Avoid exercise and stay away from humidity. Do not wear hats and caps on your head and do not rest your sunglasses on top of your head.

Using Shampoos and Conditioners

Ask your hairdresser to recommend ideal products you can use after the straightening process. Chemically straightened hair is sometimes extremely sensitive to some products; hence it is always better to consult your hair stylist on what is suitable.
There are some special types of shampoos and conditioners available for straightened or chemically treated hair. Use a moisturising shampoo or conditioner or buy products specially formulated for chemically treated hair. Such products will help to maintain the shine and moisture in your hair. It will prevent your hair from becoming fragile and easily breakable.
You will need to take special care of your hair to prevent it from becoming drier and more brittle. Avoid products that can lead to dehydration of hair such as hair gels, hair sprays and lotions.

Chemically Straightening Hair and Colouring

If you are planning to colour your hair after straightening it, go ahead only after it has been safely decided that you can. Getting your hair straightened and coloured at the same time might not be the best option for everyone.
The amount of time you will have to wait to colour your hair after it has been straightened depends on the straightening technique which has been used on your hair. Most specialists recommend that you will have to wait at least two weeks before colouring your hair after it has been chemically straightened.

Other Tips for Chemically Straightened Hair

Here are some more hair care tips for taking care of your straightened hair.

Avoid Using Hair Dryers

- Frequent usage of hot blow dryers and other hot styling tools must be avoided as their heat could further dry or damage your hair. If using them is necessary, then ensure that you have applied a good protective leave in conditioner first and keep the lowest heat setting.

Wash Hair Thoroughly

- Relaxed hair has the tendency to absorb residue from shampoo and other hair products; hence it is better to wash your hair thoroughly after applying them to prevent your hair from looking dull.

Use Wide Toothed Comb

- Instead of using hair brushes to detangle your hair, use a wide toothed comb or pick as these will be gentler on your hair.

Take Hair Moisturising Treatments

- If your stylist approves, go in for deep conditioning hair treatments at home at least once a week. You can also try a moisturising treatment or hot oil treatment.
Always remain gentle with your hair. Take other tips from your stylist to keep your hair looking shiny and healthy. Maintain your straightened hair well and it will remain soft, straight and healthy for a longer period of time.
