With online meetings, e-numan with friends, and online movie nights with your special someone becoming more popular these days, it's important to keep your locks always video-ready. While it may be tempting to skip this much-needed hair care routine as there's no need to step outside, it's still empowering (and loads of fun!) to put in the effort.

Getting ready for a video call can be fun and give you more confidence!

Give your crowning glory the love it deserves with an easy-to-do hair keratin treatment at home! Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make sure your hair looks smooth, healthy, and shiny for all of your video calls.

Step 1: Cleanse and Condition with the Right Products

While shampooing and conditioning your hair regularly is a given, it's important to know what products best suit your hair type. Those who experience frizz and flyaway hair can use the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner. It serves as a daily keratin hair treatment with its formulation of argan oil and keratin for smoother, shinier hair.

If you have extra long hair, cleanse with the Sunsilk Strong and Long and follow up with Cream Silk Dry Rescue Conditioner to prevent dryness.

Those with colored hair definitely need specialized care. A TRESemmé favorite that works best for hair color is their Pro-Color Series Color Radiance Shampoo and Conditioner. These contain anti-fade technology that ensures your new color doesn’t lose its vibrancy. Meanwhile, jojoba oil, a vitamin-rich ingredient that is a godsend for chemically-treated hair, keeps your locks moisturized!

Step 2: Use a Keratin Hair Treatment Mask

Though frequency may differ depending on your hair type, using a hair keratin treatment at home once to thrice a week can do wonders for bringing life back into dull locks. As a moisturizing ingredient, keratin coats the hair cuticle, allowing it to absorb its nutrients to give you a glossy sheen and a more manageable texture.

The Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Repair Treatment is great for going from a frizzy mess to salon-smooth hair—which is especially helpful in humid weather! It can also help damaged hair (be it from constant bleaching, rebonding, or other chemical treatments) regain its strength.

You can also try the Vitakeratin Expert Salon Treatment, to give your hair the daily nourishment it needs to be restored and repaired from damage.

Step 3: Section, Apply, and Massage

Start by drying off your hair—but not completely! Make sure your hair is still damp. Next, section your hair. This helps you spread your keratin hair treatment evenly, focusing mainly on the roots.

Then, when you've confidently covered all bases, massage the product into your hair and scalp to help seal in all the nutrients from the keratin hair treatment mask.

Step 4: Wrap Hair in a Hot Towel

Having a hot towel around your hair can help keep the product from dripping and add some heat to the mask. This allows the hair and scalp to better absorb the ingredients. Leave this on for 20 to 30 minutes for optimal results.

Step 5: Rinse

Rinse the treatment off thoroughly with either lukewarm or cool water. Cool water helps to seal the hair cuticles, enabling your hair to retain more moisture.

Step 6: Blow Dry and Style

With your healthy locks all prepped from your hair keratin treatment at home, you can blow dry and style your hair however best you like it.

With these steps on how to do a hair keratin treatment at home, you’ll be sure to feel confident and video-call-ready anytime!
