Q. WHO IS THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT?
It has been our experience, that good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. We have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine/course/frizzy/curly), as well as hair that has been permed, Japanese straightened and extensions. In doing so, we have found that with proper communication and a well considered application, everyone can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.
Q. WHAT KIND OF LOOK WILL YOU GET FROM THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT?
The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment.
Q. CAN I STILL RECEIVE A BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT IF I HAVE HIGHLIGHTS AND/OR COLOR?
Yes, the Brazilian Blowout will actually improve the health of color-treated/highlighted hair by conditioning the hair while sealing the cuticle for enhanced color, reduced frizz and radiant shine. Always color hair before doing the Brazilian Blowout treatments to ensure you won’t remove the treatment. Root touch ups should be done on the roots only so you don’t remove the treatment on the rest of the hair.
Q. IS THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT GOING TO MAKE MY HAIR STRAIGHT?
If your hair is wavy, the Brazilian Blowout will make your hair appear naturally straight and healthy. If your hair is very curly, it will minimize frizz while enhancing the appearance of the natural wave/curl. If you have straight, frizzy hair, this treatment will eliminate frizz and promote radiant shine. Some clients experience 30-60% less tightness of their curls, some can now wash and go.
Q. HOW LONG DOES THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT LAST?
The Brazilian Blowout will last up to 12 weeks if the Açai 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. By maintaining with their after care products, some clients have doubled the length of their treatment. The treatment and it’s longevity is only guaranteed when maintained with the Brazilian Blowout aftercare.
Q. CAN YOU APPLY THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT DIRECTLY ON TOP OF OTHER RELAXERS AND STRENGTHENERS?
Yes. The Brazilian Blowout actually works best on chemically treated hair, and helps to improve the hairs condition by fortifying each strand with essential amino acids.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. Keratins and Japanese treatments can break the bonds of the hair making the hair chemically altered with the possibility of damage and can change your color making appear brassier or lighter. This can take years to recover or having to recolor your hair, where as the Brazilian Blowout actually repairs the hair and leaves all your bonds intact and enhances your color by sealing it in.
Q. WILL MY HAIR LOSE VOLUME IF I RECEIVE THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT?
No, your hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the Brazilian Blowout as the treatment is 100% customizable. Your hair will maintain its natural volume and you will still receive great bend and memory when blow-drying and/or using a curling iron.
Q. CAN YOU COLOR YOUR HAIR THE SAME DAY YOU RECEIVE A BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT?
Yes, however, you must color your hair prior to having the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.
Q. WHAT IS FRIZZ AND HOW IS IT CAUSED
There are two types of frizz, one is caused from the cuticle of the hair expanding, making the outer cuticle rise and start to look like a shingled roof or fish scale. There’s also Re-Growth frizz. Each day we lose an average of 70 strands of hair and they regrow daily. Lighter and shorter hairs can appear frizzy with humidity around the roots or hairline. Low iron, hormonal changes including thyroid, post pregnancy or even stress can all be connected to extra hair loss. Once the hairs establish some weight and length they will settle back down. The Brazilian Blowout will help with both of these types of frizz.
