How to change your haircare routine after straightening your hair

Use a sulfate-free shampoo: 

Sulfates can strip your hair of its natural oils, which are essential for keeping it healthy and moisturized. Look for a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo to use after straightening your hair.

Condition regularly: 

After shampooing, use a hydrating conditioner to restore moisture to your hair. Consider using a deep conditioning treatment once a week to keep your hair soft and healthy.

Avoid heat styling: 

Give your hair a break from heat styling tools like flat irons and curling irons to prevent further damage. If you must use heat, use a heat protectant spray to minimize damage.

Protect your hair while sleeping: 

To prevent your straightened hair from getting frizzy or damaged while you sleep, consider wrapping it in a silk or satin scarf or using a silk or satin pillowcase.

Avoid washing your hair too frequently: 

Washing your hair too often can strip it of its natural oils, leading to dryness and damage. Try to wash your hair no more than 2-3 times a week.

Use a leave-in conditioner: 

A leave-in conditioner can help keep your hair moisturized and protected from environmental damage. Apply it to your hair after washing and conditioning.

Trim regularly: 

Regular trims can help prevent split ends and keep your hair looking healthy. Aim to get a trim every 6-8 weeks, or as needed.

Protect your hair from the sun: 

UV rays can damage your hair and cause it to become dry and brittle. Consider wearing a hat or using a UV-protectant spray when you're out in the sun for extended periods.
