After the cream is applied the hair is kept as it is for thirty to forty five minutes and then washed. After the straightening cream is washed away with another cream called a neutralizer is used to keep the hair from not changing its color. This also affects the hair in a serious way. After the hair is straightened it does not mean that since the hair is straight every thing is alright. The neutralizer cream needs to be applied as the straightening cream’s effect remains on the hair and if the neutralizer is not applied there are chances that the color of the hair could be changed and that is irreversible.
