Smoothing treatments are a great investment for your hair and help in cutting down styling time. As with any investment you still want to make sure you’re enjoying the benefits of the service for as long as possible. To help, we’ve rounded up the top at-home ways to prolong the life of your smoothing treatment and make sure you get the most bang for your buck.
It may seem obvious, but washing your hair too frequently will shorten the lifespan of your smoothing treatment. Ideally, you should shampoo your strands about 1-2 times a week at most in order to keep the formula in your hair longer. If you find your strands looking a bit dull and flat, use Cezanne Root Blast to add volume and texture in between washes. The formula gives your hair body without leaving a stiff finish or compromising your smoothing treatment.
Shampoo and condition wisely.
On wash days, it’s extremely important to use products formulated to prolong your smoothing treatment. The Cezanne Perfect Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner are formulated with a hydrolyzed protein to protect and strengthen your hair while rebuilding elasticity and restoring shine. Plus, these products are color-safe and free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates, meaning they are beneficial to use even when your smoothing treatment grows out.
Condition before styling.
Whether you’re air-drying or using hot tools to style your hair, make sure to apply a leave-in conditioner to maintain the treatment’s silky effects. Cezanne offers two color-safe formulas for different hair types. The Cezanne Leave-In Spray Conditioner is a lightweight formula ideal for fine to medium hair. Formulated with the same hydrolyzed protein as the line’s shampoo and conditioner, this product prevents flyaways and leaves hair smooth, soft and shiny. The Cezanne Leave-In Creme delivers the same results as the Spray Conditioner in a thicker, lotion-like formula ideal for those with thick or coarse strands.
Protect your tresses.
No matter what your daily hair routine looks like, it’s important to protect your hair from heat and environmental stressors. Before heat styling, apply the Cezanne Perfect Finish Thermal Protectant Spray to protect your hair and deliver high shine. On days when you’re not heat styling, or when your hair is in need of a refresh, apply the Cezanne Leave-In Perfector Spray to dry hair to protect your strands from harmful UV rays and heat, restore moisture and shine and strengthen your locks.
Incorporate these steps into your routine and you’re bound to enjoy your smoothing treatment for as long as possible. Plus, because the products are strengthening, moisturizing, color-safe and free of harmful ingredients, you’ll be able to have great hair long after your treatment grows out.
