When you visit a keratin treatment salon, you expect to get rid of any frizz and have soft, smooth hair. While in most cases you have the straight hair of your dreams, it’s sometimes not the case, especially when the treatment is applied by an inexperienced professional.
When you don’t like how the hair looks or feels, you want to reverse it. While it’s possible to reverse a keratin treatment, you can’t do it in one day. You also can’t do it in one week. It will take you several weeks to completely reverse the keratin treatment.
Wondering how to reverse a keratin treatment? There are plenty of ways you can do it. Some of these ways include:
Wash your hair
When you wash your hair, you prevent the keratin from working in the cuticle’s inner part. As soon as you get home, wash your hair with as much water as possible. To increase the length of time you are exposed to water, enroll in swimming classes in your area.
Yogurt and sea salt
Mix salt and yogurt and let the mixture sit for a few minutes. To remove the keratin, begin with rinsing the hair with lukewarm water, then gently apply the mixture to your hair then massage it evenly throughout.
Keep the mixture in your hair for 45 minutes, then put a towel on your shoulder to prevent it from dripping on your clothes. After 45 minutes, wash your hair thoroughly. Once you are done, pat dry the hair with a microfiber towel.
Give your hair time to air dry, so don’t blow dry it.
The salt exfoliates the hair while the yogurt buffers the exfoliating drying effect with its moisturizing properties, making sure that the hair doesn’t get brittle and fragile.
After applying this mixture, you will notice the keratin treatment begin to fade. For the treatment to completely go away, you have to repeat the process a few times.
Engage in physical activities
Engaging in physical activities makes you sweat, which significantly affects your keratin. The cool thing is there are plenty of physical activities you can engage in. The most popular ones being: spinning, basketball, soccer or any other strenuous activity that will make you sweat.
Sea salt spray and coconut oil hair mask
Begin with spritzing your hair evenly with the sea salt spray, massage it gently over your hair, and support your hair’s hydration with a warm coconut oil hair mask. For the coconut oil to infuse into your hair, sit under the hair steamer for at least 15 minutes.
Since the coconut oil is slightly alkaline, it will open the cuticles to loosen the keratin layers so they can melt away and you have your original hair.
Try out different hairstyles.
When you get a keratin treatment, you are discouraged from trying out any hairstyle, but you should try out as many styles as possible when you are looking to reverse the style. As soon as you come back from the salon, wash the hair, then try to style it to your preferred style.
You can braid it, pull it up in a ponytail and use different bows and clips. The purpose of doing this is to touch your hair as much as possible and, as a consequence, impede the keratin from penetrating and acting on your hair.
Use a Bentonite clay hair mask.
Finally, you can reverse your Brazilian keratin straightening Rockville using a Bentonite clay mask that works as a deep cleansing treatment. The treatment flexes the hair cuticles and removes the keratin layers the same way it would remove buildup and toxins from the hair.
