06 January 2023

After a month with your protective hairstyle, you are about to undo it to find your dear hair!

Be careful all the same to respect certain steps and to apply a deep care on the hair. It would be a shame if the protective hairstyle did not turn into a destructive hairstyle…

There protective hairstyle  is ideal to avoid any manipulation of the hair for a given period and to protect it from certain aggressions (cold, wind, dry weather, sun, pollution, friction, etc.).

Yes, but here it is a protective hairstyle cannot last forever . After 4 weeks, we already have to say goodbye. Problem, you don't get rid like that of a month of knots and a month of dust at the root. Here are some tips to help you out.

After a protective hairstyle, we integrate a deep care into our hair routine

The hair routine includes several key steps:

#1. disentangling

Moisten the hair from roots to ends with a spray bottle, then loosen it section by section with your fingers.

#2. Deep care

It is a question of hydrating or fortifying the hair. The deep care being greasy, it is better to do it before shampooing.

#3. Shampoo

The shampoo allows you to wash, remove excess material and lighten the hair. We make sure to use a shampoo that does not go against the effects of deep care.

#4. Breathing

We let the hair breathe while waiting at least 15 days before making a new protective hairstyle.

What deep care after a protective hairstyle?

Deep care is a long-lasting moisturizing or repairing treatment. Concretely, it acts in depth unlike ordinary care which forms a protective barrier on the surface. There are three different treatments:

#1. Deep moisturizing care

If you have dry, rough, brittle and difficult to style hair, it is better to opt for a moisturizer. The latter compensates for the lack of hydration by nourishing the hair in depth. To seal in hydration, it is advisable to perform regular leave-in treatments or apply brilliantine.

#2. Deep protein care

When the hair is damaged following a change of season, a change of protective hairstyle or overuse of the straightening iron or the hair dryer, it is recommended to apply a protein treatment. The latter repairs the cracks in the hair fiber and strengthens it by filling in the lack of keratin. Be careful, however, not to abuse this treatment, at the risk of drying out the hair.

#3. The nourishing oil bath

It nourishes the hair but does not hydrate it. Each oil has its specificity. For textured hair, it is better to capitalize on vegetable oils such as papaya oil for example.
