If this is a fear for you, don’t worry! Removing the oil from the hair is not a seven-headed animal. Just wash your hair well after treatment. And remember that foam is not synonymous with cleaning, so avoid shampoos with sulfates or anti-residues, as they can damage the hair and make all the benefits of nighttime wetting go away.

There is also a technique to facilitate the removal of oil from the wires. She calls it UCPE, an acronym for “wet, condition, pause and rinse”. The only difference is that after sleeping with the oil in your hair (wetting), you will apply conditioner to your hair ( conditioning), wait for it to act for a few minutes (pause) and then rinse with plenty of water, preferably cold (rinse).

If you choose to remove nighttime wetting with this technique, you don’t need to shampoo. You will notice that the conditioner itself will help – and a lot – to remove the oil from the hair.
