FAQ: Hair Straightening And Oil Treatment

Question: 
I just had my hair straightened with a permanent straightener. Can I use a hot oil treatment before I shampoo my hair?

Answer: 
Yes you can, BUT it depends WHEN you had the treatment done. If today, you need to wait couple of days before you use a hot oil treatment and then shampoo your hair. The relaxer (straightener) needs to set in so the curl doesn't spring back. A hot oil treatment will replace some of the oils that relaxer "takes" out in the process of relaxing your hair.

This post should be taken as a first step for a discussion with your hairdresser and/or colorist about your ideas, desires or problems with your hair. Under no circumstances, you should act upon this post ONLY. I strongly advice you to have your hair done by a skilled and reputable hairdresser/colorist in your area.
