    2. Avoid chemicals, heat and processing of your hair

    Don’t go back to using chemicals again right after doing the detoxing. Your hair would get damaged again. Try and avoid:

    • dyeing your hair as bleaching and coloring would damage your hair.
    • Using Heat Producing products like straightening iron again.
    • Any Sulfate related shampoo or conditioner

    Do deep conditioning treatments at least once to twice a week, and space out the dying processes by at least a month before dying again. If you need to heat your hair, use a thermal treatment with silicone ingredients.

    3. Comb your scalp with the right brush

    While your hair is dry, you should use a wide-toothed comb to comb from your hair roots to the tip. So that your hair would untangle any knots at the end. you can also apply oil so that you can prevent damage while combing, shampooing and drying.

    When your hair is wet, you should use a scalp scrubber. It massages the scalp in a circular motion to remove any buildup and rinse out all the detox mask.
