Brazilian Blowout FAQ, The Real Low Down on Brazilian Blowout

Q. Is the Brazilian Blowout a keratin treatment?

A. No it is a smoothing treatment that puts a coating on the hair. It is healthy for the hair cuticle and is considered advantageous for all hair types.

Q. Who is the best candidate for the Brazilian Blowout?
A. In our experience people who have heavily processed, damaged or really frizzy hair. We have performed these treatment on all hair types including frizzy, course, fine and ethnic hair. All hair types benefit from Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.

Q. What will my hair look like after the Brazilian Blowout?
A. Your hair will be really smooth (no frizz), shiny and manageable and with plenty of body. You will still have the option to wear it curly or wavy (depending on the hair type) as well as drying your hair in half the time it took you before.

Q. Can I still receive a Brazilian Blowout if I have highlights and/or color?
A. Absolutely, in fact we recommend you have this procedure done immediately following a hair color treatment. The reason being  the Brazilian Blowout will actually seal the cuticle of the hair shaft so it basically puts a coating over the color allowing your color to last longer while simultaneously reducing frizz and giving you a wonderful shine.

Q. Will the Brazilian Blowout make my hair straight?

A. If you have curly hair it will smooth it out and reduce the frizz. In essence yes it will make it straight but depending on the degree of frizz and curl you have it is hard to say whether it will completely straighten your hair. I can tell you this, we have performed this on some of the most coarse and frizzy hair imaginable and it made the hair extremely smooth and shiny. Amazing results!

Q. How long does the Brazilian Blowout last?

A. The Brazilian Blowout can last up to 12 weeks as long as the Acai product line is used in coordination with the treatment. We have seen it last longer in many instances. Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative smoothing treatment meaning the more you have it done the healthier and longer lasting your shine will last.

Q. Can you apply the Brazilian Blowout on other relaxers or straighteners?
A. Yes. The Brazilian Blowout actually works best on chemically treated hair. We have applied it to other relaxers/keratin treatments with absolutely no issue. Brazilian Blowout helps to improve condition of the hair by fortifying each strand with essential amino acids.

TIP: 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.

The Brazilian Blowout is great to perform when someone is trying to move away from having relaxers or Japanese straighteners. It puts movement back into the hair, allowing the hair to look its best.

Q. Will my hair lose volume if I receive the Brazilian Blowout?
A. Absolutely not! Your hair will keep its natural volume and you will have normal volume when blow-drying/styling or using a curling iron.

Q. Can you put color or foil your hair the same day you get a Brazilian Blowout treament?
A. Absolutely in fact we recommend it. Just be sure the BB is done before you receive your color treatment.

Q. How long does a Brazilian Blowout treatment take?

A. This process takes around 2hrs on average depending on hair length. For short hair it can be completed in an hr and half. For long hair can take up to 3 hrs depending on the speed of the stylist. We find that on average it takes about 2 hrs.
