What ingredients to avoid after keratin treatment?

After getting a keratin treatment, it's important to avoid certain ingredients in hair care products to maintain the longevity of the treatment. Here are some ingredients to avoid:

  1. Sulfates: Sulfates are harsh detergents found in many shampoos and can strip the hair of its natural oils. Look for sulfate-free shampoos to prevent premature fading of the keratin treatment.

  2. Sodium Chloride: Sodium chloride, also known as table salt, can cause the keratin to break down and wash out of the hair faster. Avoid hair products that contain salt.

  3. Alcohol: Alcohol can dry out the hair and cause damage, which can lead to frizz and breakage. Look for alcohol-free products or those with a lower concentration of alcohol.

  4. Formaldehyde: Formaldehyde is a common ingredient in some hair straightening treatments and can cause irritation to the scalp and eyes. Avoid any products that contain formaldehyde or its derivatives.

  5. Parabens: Parabens are preservatives that can cause irritation and allergic reactions. Look for products that are labeled as paraben-free.

  6. Silicone: Silicone can coat the hair and prevent the keratin treatment from penetrating the hair shaft. Avoid products that contain silicone or use them sparingly.

Overall, it's important to use gentle, nourishing products after a keratin treatment to prolong its effects and keep your hair looking healthy and shiny.
