    Post treatment care for AGAVE smoothing/straightening

    Leave agave in your hair overnight. The next morning, rinse really really well with water only. Follow with two shampoos and then condition. Leave in conditioner for 5 minutes.
    Towel dry and ideally, add a small amount of Agave oil from the Agave haircare range.

    To keep the Agave treatment effective you must use the Agave sulphate free range of hair care. Other products strip the smoothing treatment out..
    Do not colour you hair for 1week.
    You can expect your treatment to last around 10-12 weeks depending on your hair, lifestyle and the way you care for it.
    It is better to get your next Agave treatment before this one has completely washed out.
    Enjoy!
