Hair Relaxer Treatment for Irvington
Many people in Irvington wish that they could spend less time trying to manage their coarse, unruly hair. They wish that it was permanently straight and easy to deal with so they could have more time in the morning not fussing and fighting with their stubborn strands. We are here to tell you that there is a solution to this problem! At Hair On The Hudson, we offer high-quality, affordable hair relaxer treatments. Our hair relaxers are formulated with industry standard ingredients that seek to protect your hair rather than strip it of all its nutrients and proteins. Many hair relaxers in the past were very poorly formulated but now they are much less damaging than ever before. If you decide to go forward with a hair relaxer treatment, you will enjoy a relaxing salon experience.
First, one of our friendly Irvington hair technicians will decide on what strength of relaxer to use on your hair. After applying and rinsing out the treatment, you will enjoy a soothing shampoo and deep conditioning mask that will calm your scalp and hair follicles. It’s really that easy, and takes no longer than three hours, depending on the length and thickness of your hair.
Hair Relaxer Aftercare
After you get your hair relaxer treatment, there are a few things you can do at home to get the most out of it and to prevent dryness and excess damage. Firstly, limit heat styling for the first week. This will allow your hair to come to terms with the treatment it has undergone. A hair relaxer treatment can be a shock to the follicle, so our Irvington hair experts suggest to shampoo twice a week, at maximum. Instead, try to focus on replenishing the hair with moisture. This can be done with oils and masks that are massaged into the hair and scalp. To take this to the next level, apply gentle steam or low heat from a blow dryer. This opens the hair follicle and allows it to absorb the moisture from the oils.
Secondly, few people know that sleeping with a protective hairstyle such as a braid or loose bun will greatly reduce the risk of hair tangling and breaking overnight. A tip is to massage a small amount of nourishing hair oil into your mane before bed, and then go to sleep with it in a braid or bun. When you wake up, you can easily rinse out the oil in the shower.
