Yuko Straightening Homecare

  • Soak entire hair to rinse out oils, dirt and styling products etc.

  • Shampoo the hair using a Yuko or other sulphate free shampoo. Remember that shampoo is designed for the scalp and not the hair, focus the product in this area. Rinse thoroughly and repeat.  

  • Squeeze the excess water from the hair and then apply your treatment. This should be applied to the ends of the hair first working your way up (not on the scalp). Leave the treatment in for the required time and then rinse.

  • The treatment should not be rinsed entirely from the hair try to leave around 10% in.

  • Squeeze the excess water and gently wrap in a towel. Do not rub the hair as this may cause damage.

  • If desired add your protein spray or other nourishing protection. 

  • Always (where possible) dry your hair with a hairdryer focusing more on the scalp areas and blowing downwards. 

  • Try to avoid leaving the hair wet as moisture left in the hair can cause frizz to return over time.   

  • Finish with a light oil shine spray if required.
