Mastering the Art of Hair Smoothening: The Basics  

Now, let's talk about how you can do hair smoothening at home. While visiting a salon is a common way to get the treatment done, it can also be a little pricey. And we are here to help you on your journey to smoother hair. First, start with a clarifying shampoo to remove any buildup and prepare your hair for the smoothening process.  

You can easily smoothen your hair at home as long as you choose a high-quality smoothening kit that suits your hair type. Follow the instructions carefully, applying the treatment evenly throughout your hair. After the recommended processing time, rinse thoroughly and apply the provided conditioner to seal in the smoothness. Finally, avoid heat styling and excessive washing in the first few days to allow the treatment to set and provide long-lasting results. Remember, patience is key, and with consistent care and maintenance, you can enjoy gorgeous, silky hair that will turn heads wherever you go!

Aftercare is crucial to extend the duration of your smoothening treatment, and you need a hair smoothening shampoo and conditioner to support your hair's health and smoothness. To start, use the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner combo. This dynamic duo is formulated with the same keratin that helps to nourish and strengthen your hair while taming frizz and flyaways. Apply the shampoo to wet hair, gently massaging it into the scalp and working it through the lengths. Rinse thoroughly and follow up with the conditioner, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends. Leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing to ensure maximum hydration and smoothness. 


2. Get instant relief with a hair mask

Say goodbye to frizz for 72 hours straight and hello to manageable, sleek hair. It strengthens and fortifies strands, reducing breakage. Easy to use, simply apply it generously to damp hair after shampooing, leaving it on for three to five minutes, or longer for an extra pampering session.

All you need to do is apply it evenly from the mid-lengths to the ends, avoiding the roots before you get to blow drying.


4. Be gentle while combing

It is important to care for hair after smoothening to maintain the smoothness and longevity of the treatment. Start by using a wide-toothed comb or a detangling brush to gently remove any tangles or knots. Begin combing from the ends, working your way up to the roots, to prevent unnecessary strain on the hair strands. Avoid using a fine-toothed comb or brush as it can lead to breakage or disrupt the smoothening effect. Additionally, avoid excessive brushing throughout the day to minimize frizz and preserve the sleekness of your hair. By following these gentle combing techniques, you can keep your hair looking smooth and fabulous for long. 


5. Common mistakes to avoid

When it comes to smoothening hair, there are a few common mistakes that you should avoid to ensure the best possible results. Firstly, never skip the strand test. This test helps you determine the compatibility of the smoothening treatment with your hair, as well as how long the whole thing will ideally take. Skipping this step can lead to unexpected outcomes or damage. Secondly, don't exceed the recommended processing time. Leaving the treatment on for too long can over-process your hair, causing it to become brittle and prone to breakage. It can also get a little tricky because you shouldn’t wash your hair too soon after the treatment either, as it needs time to set and lock in the smoothness. Lastly, avoid using heat styling tools immediately after the smoothening process, as this can reverse the effects or cause damage.  

FAQs about Mastering the Art of Hair Smoothening

Q2. What are the benefits of hair smoothening? 

Smoothening reduces frizz and flyaways, providing a sleek and polished look that lasts for an extended period. It also makes hair more manageable, saving time and effort in daily styling routines while enhancing the smoothness and softness of the hair. 

Q3. Is smoothening good for hair? 

Smoothening hair can be beneficial for certain hair types. If you desire smoother, more manageable hair, this is for you. But Smoothening treatments often involve the use of chemicals or heat to relax the hair's texture and reduce frizz. While these treatments can provide temporary smoothness and make styling easier, they may also pose potential risks if not done properly or if the hair is already damaged or weakened. 

With these tips as part of your aftercare regimen, you can ensure that your hair smoothening treatment lasts longer, keeping your hair irresistibly smooth, soft and stunning.
