Pretreated strands are far less delicate than the straightened hair, which has to be cared for in detail in order to make it look and be healthy. You may have to avoid curling irons, backcombing and straightening irons while using vigilant conditioning and gentle treatments.
Hair will get damaged due to the rough treatment in which styling methods, hair clips, extremely vigorous shampooing, tight roller sets and wet hair brushing are included. Hair has to be left alone to be natural, so avoid doing anything you may think will impair your hair and be rough on.
Conditioners and Shampoos for Relaxed Hair
Relaxed hair is very easy to detect due to the feel in the hand and texture change after the use of styling products. It will be more damage prone and if this is a problem that you have encountered with earlier, get a shampoo for relaxed tresses. High-emollient and low-detergent products will not harm delicate cuticle and all the natural oils will remain. The stress from the styling procedures can be decreased by the protective barrier made with the moisture placed on the parched hair.
We will see which styling products can be used and which will not cause great damage to the hair. You will have to continue with the use of styling products filled with moist if you used them before the relaxing treatment. You can get products that are designed especially for the hair treated by chemicals and you even need to increase the use of such conditioners. But you will have to be careful and never exceed with the use of styling wax, pomade and conditioning oil, because this will make your hair look grimy and increase the number of shampooing. There are some styling products that you will have to avoid and some of them are hair sprays based on alcohol, gels and sculpturing lotions. Also, there is a chance that your hair will start to break after the relaxing treatments and this will suggest improper neutralization of the strands.
Healthy hair means that you will have to do less with the relaxed hair. So you will experience less breakage and have a stronger hair if you decide on the wash-and-wear instead of the straightening iron or a blow-dryer. Never exceed with the thermal styling although it is permitted on occasional basis. Try to become relaxed with the relaxed hair or you can see with your hair stylist to find a way for you to keep the problem out of your vision and mind.
