Do you know what is it, what are its benefits, and most importantly how is it done? Well, cysteine hair treatment is quite an easy type of hair treatment and merely involves three steps.

What Is Cysteine Hair Treatment?

Completely safe for your hair, cysteine hair treatment is a semi-permanent hair therapy that repairs dry and damaged hair without any possible side-effects. This hair therapy promises to control the unnecessary frizz in your hair and make it more manageable.

This hair treatment can also be done at home and typically does not require professional help. But you can always have someone to assist your so that nothing goes wrong during the treatment.

How Is Cysteine Hair Treatment Done?

It is quite easy to do cysteine hair treatment at home. It involves three steps - washing, treating, and conditioning - each of which are explained in detail below:


In this step, you need to wash your hair thoroughly with a mild sulphate-free shampoo. While washing you hair, you need to ensure that you completely remove any oil residue or dirt from your scalp and hair.

Once you have washed your hair, you need to blow dry it to remove excess moisture present in it. Though you should not let your hair get very dry. Now, move on to the next step - the actual cysteine hair treatment.


This is the second and a very important step of cysteine hair treatment. In this step, you first divide your hair into small sections. While treating your hair, always start from the back. Here, some people might need help or some kind of assistance. Take some amount of cysteine smoothening cream and apply it on your hair - one section at a time. Ensure that you apply the cream all pover your hair from roots to tips. Continue doing this until all the hair is covered.

Once done, leave it to dry for about 30 minutes before you wash it off with a shampoo. Blow dry your hair, but again, ensure that it does not get too dry.


In the last step of this treatment, you apply a conditioner. Apply a protein-based leave-in conditioner. Then, take a hair straightener and straighten all your hair and leave it at that.

Do give cysteine hair treatment a chance and say goodbye to dry, damaged, and frizzy hair forever.
