What is a Brazilian Blowout?
A Brazilian Blowout is a chemical smoothing treatment that uses a liquid keratin formula which bonds to each strand of hair, actually improving the condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle, thus decreasing blow-dry time and improving the hairs manageability.
During the treatment the hair is blow dried, straightened, rinsed out and blow dried again. The heat causes the chemicals to activate and bond to the shaft.
Will a Brazilian Blowout leave my hair completely straight?
A Brazilian Blowout treatment will not necessarily leave you with straight hair if you don’t want it to. The more your stylist irons the hair, the straighter it will be. Should you wish to wear your hair curly but just remove the frizz, your stylist will tailor the treatment to either preserve the texture or make it smoother. But ask your stylist as you may require a different treatment depending on your desired results.
How long will the results last?
The Brazilian Blowout treatment will last up to three months, sometimes longer if you don’t need to wash your hair as regularly as most people do.
What’s the down time after a Brazilian Blowout?
In the past the treatment came with some restrictions on activities directly after the treatment. With today’s modern formulas, you can leave the salon and carry on with your normal life.
