The Brazilian Blowout

The Brazilian Blowout has been out for a while, but there are still some people who don't know about it or who are on the fence about it. So here's what you need to know.

The Brazilian Blowout is a smoothing treatment that, according to the website, actually improves the condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle.

Now, I've seen the Brazilian Blowout firsthand. The girls in the before and after photos haven't sat for hours while a stylist meticulously blow-dried and flat ironed their hair. The hair actually looks like that after the treatment with just a simple blow dry. 

Don't get me wrong. You do have to sit for hours. The treatment takes a while because you have to be shampooed, then the product is combed through your hair, then you're blow-dried, flat ironed, washed, and blow-dried and flat ironed again. You can see if you have a lot of hair like I do how it could take a while. 

But afterwards, you've got sleek, frizz-free hair that lasts for many weeks! If you ask me, it's well worth the sitting time. 

The blowout is really a revolutionary process in my opinion. It isn't permanent, so your natural curl will come back after so many weeks. Plus it doesn't damage the hair in anyways. In fact, since you'll use your flat iron a lot less often, you could almost say that the blowout helps your hair. Like I've said before, it is isn't permanent, why not try it?

If you have questions about the blowout, how it works or what is in it, ask your hair care professional.
