Cysteine treatment for hair has become quite popular across the world for transforming dry, frizzy hair into silky, frizz-free hair. It is considered a better option than keratin since it is claimed that cysteine has no formaldehyde or any other harmful substitutes. It is said to contain amino acids and natural proteins as well.

This treatment usually lasts for about 3-4 months depending on how much you wash your hair, how you wash your hair, and with what you wash your hair. I have been able to make cysteine treatment last in my hair for about 6 months with these tried and tested tips. These have worked for me, but you must proceed with caution if you plan to follow these. It may not give you the same results. Here are the tips:

But, as far as possible, I try to stay away from tying up my hair or using clips to hold it back, for about 2 days after the treatment.
