How to dry your hair after a Brazilian straightening?


If you've had a Brazilian straightening done, you've probably wondered how to dry your hair afterwards. After a Brazilian straightening, you should shampoo your hair completely. This will remove all residue from the straightening, and rebalance the acidity of your scalp.


When to wash your hair? Usually 3 days after your straightening. A special shampoo is recommended after this procedure, because it is essential to avoid salts, sulfates and derivatives.

These components are aggressive and can gradually eliminate the smooth effect of your hair, while giving you ends and frizz.

First of all, do not use a towel to rub your hair, it will break the fiber and split some hair in two at the ends. Only use a blow dryer or a steam helmet.

To dry your hair, start by using a thermal protector. This is a type of product based on water-soluble silicone derivatives that create a protective layer on the hair fiber.

This layer acts like a mesh that distributes heat evenly.

A thermal protector is your hair straightener's best friend. It is very important to invest in a good product of this kind to protect your hair against heat, the elements and to make the straightening last over time.

It has been proven that regular use of a heat protector increases the duration of straightening by 200%, from 3 months to 6 months.
