Ladies and Gentleman alike, I know what's on your mind.  "Melinda, is the Brazilian Blowout safe?" 

The answer is an unequivocal YES!  I would never put my clients or my co-workers in harms way.

Don't take my word for it, scroll down and click the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) prepared to OSHA standards.

What is the Brazilian Blowout?  Well, It's magic in a bottle. 

Lets explain the process in the simplest terms.  The plant derived formula seals the microscopic cracks in the hair cuticle.  Now that your hair is smooth and sealed, moisture can not enter.  Moisture causes the frizz.

Ever wonder why your hair is unmanageable
on humid days?  Now you know.

IS THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT SAFE?

An unequivocal YES! It is unfortunate that an amazing product, company, and brand must defend their product at the expense of TV ratings. As stated above, I would never place my client, my co-workers in harms way. The Brazilian Blowout formula is plant derived and formaldehyde free.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

First, know that the Brazilian Blowout is a brand and a treatment technique. Simple, the name of the company is, you guessed it, Brazilian Blowout. The technique is called a keratin treatment and you will find other brands out there.

The simple non-scientific answer is that the Brazilian Blowout is a keratin sealant treatment of the hair. Keratin is the protein your hair is made of. Your hair has microscopic cracks in the cuticle due to damage. The cuticle is the outermost part of the hair shaft in case you were wondering. The more severe the cracks, the more severe the frizz. These microscopic cracks absorb moisture and that's why your hair gets super frizzy on humid days.

It's simple:

1. Seal the cracks
2. Create a smooth surface.
3. Viola!, you've stop the frizz. Your hair is smooth and healthy.

After thoroughly washing your hair, probably three or four times, I will use a special heating iron to seal the keratin to your hair. The process should only take about 90 minutes and has almost no restrictions on what you can do to your hair after your treatment.

Many people are confusing the Brazilian Blowout with the Japanese hair straightening technique. Don't! They are not the same thing. The Japanese technique uses chemicals to relax and straighten the hair.

WHO ARE THE BEST CANDIDATES FOR THE BRAZLIAN BLOWOUT?

It has been my experience, that good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. I 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, I have found that with proper communication and a well considered application, everyone can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.

WHAT KIND OF LOOK WILL YOU GET FROM THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT?

Your 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.

IS THE BRAZLIAN 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.

HOW LONG DOES THE BRAZILAN BLOWOUT LAST?

The Brazilian Blowout will last for 10-12 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.

CAN YOU APPLY THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT DIRECTLY ON TOP OF OTHER RELAXERS?

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.

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. If you are coloring hair dark brunette or red, you will want to color the hair a shade darker than you otherwise would, as the hair color will experience fading during the Brazilian Blowout treatment.

CAN YOU SWIM IN THE POOL OR OCEAN AFTER YOU HAVE THE BRAZLIAN BLOWOUT TREATMENT?

Yes, you can swim in either the pool or the ocean after you receive the Brazilian Blowout treatment, however, the treatment may be slightly compromised if you swim on a regular basis. We recommend that you apply the Brazilian Blowout Smoothing Serum on the hair prior to swimming in order to act as a protective barrier to maintain the smoothest possible result for the longest period of time.

HOW SOON CAN YOU TOUCH UP YOUR HAIR COLOR AFTER YOU RECEIVE THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT TREATMENT?

You should wait at least two weeks to administer color to your hair after you receive the Brazilian Blowout, as the color will not deposit as effectively with the protein protective layer provided by the smoothing treatment.

If you need to touch up color/roots in between treatments, this is ok, as the hair being touched up is new growth and does not have the treatment on it.  If you need to highlight or pull the full color through the entire head of hair, make sure that the you use the Brazilian Blowout masque at least once or twice a week to fortify the treatment back into the hair.

CAN I RECEIVE THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT IF I HAVE OVER PROCESSED BLONDE HAIRE? WHAT IF MY HAIR IS PLATINUM BLONDE?

It is important that I assess the condition of the your hair to make sure it is in a healthy enough state to apply extreme heat through the use of a flat iron. If it is felt that the your hair is in questionable condition, the recommendation is to turn the flat iron down from 450 degrees to approx. 380-420.

CAN YOU PERFROM A BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT ON EXTENSIONS?

Yes, the Brazilian Blowout performs perfectly on hair extensions. It would be best to perform the Brazilian Blowout separately on the extensions prior to putting them into the hair. If you wish to perform the treatment on extensions that are already in the hair, exteme care will need to be taken when applying the solution to the bonded area. Brazilian Blowout solution acts as a conditioning agent, and may create slip resulting in the extensions separating from the hair. With care, a great result can be achieved.

WHAT IS THE ACTIVE CHEMICAL IN THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT SOLUTION THAT MAKES IT WORK SO WELL?

The Brazilian Blowout smooths the hair through the use of a proprietary polymer system that bonds amino acids to the surface of the hair.  This treatment is 100% salon safe. What makes the Brazilian Blowout treatment effective is our use of the Super Nutrient Complex in conjunction with a proprietary polymer system. This combination is what rounds the follicle, smooths the cuticle and repairs any preexisting damage.

HOW IS THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT DIFFERENT FROM THE JAPANESE STRAIGHTENING METHOD MANY PEOPLE ARE FAMILIAR WITH?

Japanese hair straightening changes the actual structure of the hair.  In doing so, there is an obvious difference between the new hair growth and the hair that has been treated, resulting in a life-long commitment to continuing the straightener or cutting hair off (if you are unhappy with the result).  This service can also leave the hair flat, too straight and with little to no shine or luster. The hair's integrity seems to be compromised, and after a few treatments, the hair appears to be in an unhealthy state.
