A Brazilian blowout aims to give you smoother, shinier and more manageable hair, especially during the summer, where hot and humid weather might normally affect the quality of your hair. Although chemicals are used in the treatment, your hair will still feel natural. You will also still be able to use all of your favourite styling tools on it, including straightening irons and curling tongs.
The treatment is designed to give your hair a protective coating, which seals the cuticles and smoothes them to prevent frizz and to maintain shine. To get the best effect out of the treatment, the user must first wash and shampoo their hair to ensure that the product is clean, and then the chemicals are applied. Once the products have been applied by your salon stylist, they can be heated using flat irons, so that the chemicals will be activated. Heating may be repeated to give the best possible effect and to seal in the product. After about 60 to 90 minutes, you hair will be successfully straightened, smooth and shiny.
Once you have had your treatment, you may need to do some aftercare steps to ensure that it continues looking good for as long as possible. Using acai aftercare products is one of the most effective ways of ensuring that you reap all of the benefits of the treatment. Many specialists will advise that you avoid using products on your hair which contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfates, because this chemical works in direct opposition to the blowout treatment chemicals, and will strip your hair of its protective layer. If you have any concerns about products that you are thinking of using, you should discuss this with your stylist before you use it. People who follow the proper maintenance routine can enjoy shinier, smoother and straighter hair for up to 3 months after the treatment. People who don’t follow salon advice or who use an inferior chemical straightening treatment may only enjoy 4 weeks of good hair.
The Brazilian blowout is the perfect treatment for summer, because it helps your hair to fight against the elements which make it frizzy, curly and unmanageable. Having the treatment at the beginning of summer can make your summer days more enjoyable, because you won’t have to spend any time worrying about what your hair is going to look like when you go out.
