A Few Tips To Extend The Life Of Your Brazilian Blowout
- Try not to over-cleanse the hair- Shampooing 2-3 times a week max.
- AVOID Shampoos that are not sold in professional salons and that contain: Sulfates and Sodium Chloride. These will strip the treatment out of your hair.
WHAT HAIR TYPE DOES THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT WORK BEST ON?
Everyone's hair can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment! People who have frizzy, damaged or processed hair see the most dramatic results. I have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine, course, frizzy, curly) as well as hair that has been permed, permanently straightened and on hair extensions, all with great results!
IS MY BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT GUARANTEED TO LAST 12 WEEKS?
Yes, but only if you purchase the recommended aftercare products. Certain shampoos contain ingredients that can strip the Brazilian Blowout protein out of the hair. The recommended aftercare products will keep you hair smooth and frizz-free for at least 12 weeks.
I COLOR MY HAIR. WHEN CAN I HAVE A BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT TREATMENT?
It is recommended to do the color and the Brazilian Blowout the same day to "lock in" your color for a longer-lasting result. If the Brazilian Blowout has already been done, you should wait about 2 weeks before coloring. This is because the protein treatment will create a barrier, thus not allowing the hair color to penetrate properly.
WHAT WILL MY HAIR LOOK LIKE AFTER RECEIVING THIS TREATMENT?
The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. If your hair is naturally curly, you should still be able to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) by scrunching it and letting it air dry. The beauty of having the Brazilian Blowout treatment is you can blow dry hair smooth and straight in half the time.
IS THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT GOING TO MAKE MY CURLY HAIR PIN-STRAIGHT?
Everyone's hair and curl/wave pattern is different and takes differently with a Brazilian Blowout. If your hair is wavy and frizzy, the Brazilian Blowout will reduce frizz and make the hair appear straighter, especially when blow-dried. If your hair is very curly and frizzy, it will reduce frizz and you may have a looser curl, similar to a "body wave". With both wavy and curly hair, you may not achieve the "pin straight" look. However, if this is your goal, we can always do a little extra ironing in areas that are very frizzy and curly to get the smoothest, straightest result possible. Brazilian Blowout is not a straightening system- it is a smoothing system. As the protein treatment wears out, the hair gradually returns to its natural shape, just in better condition.
CAN I GET A BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT AND KEEP THE CURL IN MY HAIR?
Yes, we are able to customize the treatment with less ironing to keep as much curl as possible, while still smoothing the cuticle to combat the frizz. Less ironing can mean the treatment doesn't last as long, but it really depends on the coarsness of the hair and the porosity.
CAN I GET A BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT IF MY HAIR IS COLORED OR HIGHLIGHTED?
Yes, the Brazilian Blowout will actually improve the health of color-treated and highlighted hair by conditioning and sealing the cuticle for enhanced color, reduced frizz and radiant shine.
HOW LONG WILL THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT LAST?
On most hair types, the Brazilian Blowout should last for at least 12 weeks if the Acai After-Care Maintenance product line is used. The Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last. Also, washing your hair every two or three days and using the Brazilian Blowout Acai products will make your results last longer (up to 4 months) than if you were washing your hair daily.
CAN YOU APPLY THE TREATMENT TO HAIR THAT HAS BEN CHEMICALLY STRAIGHTENED OR PERMED?
Yes. The Brazilian Blowout actually works great on chemically treated hair, and helps to improve the hairs condition by fortifying each strand with essential proteins and conditioners.
The Brazilian Blowout works great directly on top of a relaxer. Perform the relaxer first, Brazilian Blowout next, and then neutralize at the very end of both treatments.
WILL MY HAIR LOSE VOLUME AFTER RECEIVING THIS TREATMENT?
No, generally your hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the Brazilian Blowout. Your hair should maintain its natural volume and you will still receive great bend and memory when blow-drying and/or using a curling iron. Your hair should be sleek and smooth, but not flat.
HOW SOON CAN I WASH OR WET MY HAIR?
The hair is washed 2-3 times at the salon prior to the treatment. After the ironing process the product gets rinsed out, and then we blow dry. If you want, you can wash your hair immediately after the Brazilian Blowout, but for longest lasting results, try to wait 24 hours. Make sure to use the Acai Shampoo and aftercare products. It is night and day difference in the longevity of your treatment.
CAN I GET A BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT IF I HAVE BLEACHED PLATINUM BLOND HAIR?
It is important for me to assess the condition of your hair to make sure it is healthy enough to use a hot flat iron on it. If it is felt that the hair is in questionable condition, the recommendation is to turn the flat iron down from 450 degrees to approx. 380-420. I will have to determine the appropriate amount of heat to apply, depending on the health of the hair. The hair type in question is hair that has been bleached and dyed over and over and resembles a lack-luster, wool-like texture and appearance.
I HAVE EXTENSIONS. CAN YOU APPLY A BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT TREATMENT ON THEM?
Yes, the Brazilian Blowout works great on hair extensions and makes the hair smoother and more manageable.
HOW SOON AFTER MY FIRST TREATMENT CAN I HAVE ANOTHER ONE DONE?
The Brazilian Blowout is just like a conditioning treatment, so you will not harm the hair by performing them too soon or too much, however, please remember that you can only fill the cuticle to its capacity. I have been performing Brazilian Blowouts on clients since 2009 and have never had a treatment "not work" in a clients hair.
WHAT WOULD I DO IF I WANT PERMANENT STRAIGHT HAIR?
Try the Bio Ionic Permanent Hair Straightening System! It permanently changes the structure of the hair by using a low odor, chemical called Thioglycolate (similar to a perm solution) that gently, but permanently, changes the bonds in the hair from curly to straight. Leaves hair soft and shiny. See the "Permanent Hair Straightening" page for more information and photo gallery.
