What is a Brazilian Blowout? It’s a life-changing hair-smoothing treatment that’s been getting stellar results for more than a decade. Think about how great you’d feel if you had a professional blow dry every day and smooth silky hair. If that sounds dreamy, a Brazilian may be right for you.
What Is a Brazilian Blowout?
A Brazilian Blowout is a semi-permanent hair-smoothing treatment that smoothes out your hair by sealing in a special keratin solution. Keratin is a rock star protein found naturally in hair, skin and nails, offering strength and protection to the parts of ourselves that we show the outside world. The unique Brazilian Blowout keratin solution creates a protective layer around each strand of hair, eliminating frizz and giving you glossy gorgeous locks.
What Does a Brazilian Blowout Involve?
Our trained stylists mindfully approach every Brazilian Blowout to give you the results you want.. First, we apply the treatment solution from top to bottom. Then we blow-dry the hair and heat it with a flat iron to seal in the treatment. Finally, we follow up with a rinse and conditioning treatment.
Like many hair treatments, a Brazilian Blowout takes around 90 minutes. The great news is, when you’re done, you’re ready to go. You don’t need to wait to exercise or shower as with some other keratin treatments.
What Are the Benefits of a Brazilian Blowout?
There are so many advantages to taking the semi-permanent Brazilian Blowout route:
- You’ll save tons of time in your morning routine: blow drying takes a fraction of the time it took before treatment.
- The treatment works well for curly, wavy or straight hair with a little frizz. It’s great for thick or fine hair.
- Your stylist can customize it to your needs, whether you’re looking for smoother hair or prefer to keep your bouncy curls while eliminating frizz.
- The protein treatment actually strengthens your hair. It can help smooth and strengthen damaged or processed hair and always adds a layer of radiant shine.
- It’s safe for color-treated hair and can even be done at the same appointment as your color refresh.
Will a Brazilian Blowout Hurt My Hair? Is It Safe?
We get this question a lot because of media reports about some of the chemicals found in the Brazilian Blowout treatment. While it’s true that chemicals are part of the solution (along with keratin and lots of natural plant-based ingredients), some of the reports have exaggerated the dangers of these chemicals which are also present in other common beauty products. The Brazilian Blowout contains small amounts of a relative of formaldehyde as a bonding agent, and it’s a key part of why the treatment works so well. Since so many cosmetic and hair care products contain chemicals, the main takeaway is that it’s super important to have an experienced stylist who can do the treatment safely. This is why cheap knock-offs and DIY attempts are a big no-no.
What research shows is that instead of damaging your hair, the Brazilian Blowout treatment improves your mane by adding a protein layer. It’s done wonders for clients with damaged hair and protects your hair’s natural volume. We recommend talking with your stylist if you have any concerns.
How Long Does a Brazilian Blowout Last?
Like many other semi-permanent treatments, a Brazilian Blowout usually lasts around three months because of hair growth. The good news: it’s a cumulative treatment. This means that each treatment adds on to the results of the previous one. The more you use it, the better your hair texture will be.
