Cysteine Treatment at Home
It is advisable to perform a small patch test before you do the Cysteine hair treatment at home. Following are the quick steps to do Cysteine treatment at home:
- Washing and cleansing – First and foremost, you need to start with a clean scalp. Shampoo your hair at least twice to ensure your hair and scalp are thoroughly clear. You can combine your usual shampoo with a cysteine smoothing shampoo for better effects. Gently blow dry your hair keeping them partially wet.
- Apply the product – Gently apply the Cysteine Smoothing Treatment using a brush and latex gloves. Apply downwards from root to tips of the hair strands taking a small section at a time starting from back to the front of your head. Cover all the scalp and hair with the product. Ensure an even distribution with a fine-tooth tail comb. Leave the product on your hair and scalp for about 30 minutes, and then wash your hair with a cysteine smoothing shampoo. Gently blow dry your hair keeping them partially wet.
- Conditioning – Apply a protein-rich leave-in conditioner. Ensure even distribution covering every hair strand. Gently blow dry your hair using a round or paddle brush, again keeping them partly wet. Apply a hair straightener to straighten hair strands and clear out curls.
Tips for Lasting Effects
You should wash your hair after 2-3 days of the treatment with a shampoo and conditioner to ensure lasting effects. It is advisable to use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner as a sulfate shampoo may harm the hair by removing its natural oils.
Do not use any hair clips or rubber bands after the procedure for at least two days to avoid unwanted bends. Chlorine may have adverse effects on the results eventually stripping off the treatment. Therefore, it is advisable to skip swimming or any exposure to hard water right after the procedure.
It is better not to apply any oil into your hair for some time as it may cause frequent requirement to shampoo which can wash off the treatment. Many hair stylists and professionals advise not to shampoo more than twice or thrice every week.
