Now that you have an amazing product, it’s time to take the first step of the treatment. Make sure you wash your hair thoroughly, using only shampoo (a keratin one, preferably)! If you have curly hair, make sure the roots are very clean. And if you have straight hair, maybe shampoo it twice in order to have it extremely cleansed! Oh, and don’t forget to rinse it well, ok?


The main step of the keratin treatment is actually applying the product. Firstly, dry out your hair with a towel (live it a little wet, though). Then, apply the keratin product starting by the ends and moving upwards! Just make sure you stay away from the roots! After applying it throughout your whole hair, massage it so it gets deep into the scalp and hair fiber.

Although the time you should let the product act can change according to the brand, normally, it’s something around 30 minutes. Before you let it act, with it already in your hair, comb your mane with a wide-toothed comb to ensure all parts of the hair are with the keratin treatment on them!


After you let it act, it’s time to wash it off! Rinse your hair with lukewarm or cold water, and make sure you take all of the product out of your head, ok? After rinsing, don’t apply any other product, as it could interfere with the keratin treatment.

We know it may seem odd to ask you to blowdry your hair when the keratin treatment is usually done to the damage caused by heating devices. However, this is a really important step, because you are ensuring that the keratin is active and that your hair is looking smooth and shiny! So use a hairdryer and a brush to have the perfect final result!

Now that you know finished the keratin treatment, you must wait at least 2 days to wash your hair again, ok? Depending on your hair’s health condition, you can do this treatment once or twice a month (just don’t overdo it, as it can have some negative effects on your mane). As you can see, it is quite simple to do a keratin treatment at home! But remember: you need to have a great product – and you can find some incredible ones at Metro Brazil! Check out our website!
