Brazilian blowout Q+a and aftercare
Q. WHO ARE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUTS BEST RECOMMENDED FOR?
A. Good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. The treatment has been tested 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?
A. 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. IS THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT GOING TO MAKE MY HAIR STRAIGHT?
A. If your hair is wavy, the Brazilian Blowout will make your hair appear smooth 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.
Q. CAN YOU APPLY THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT DIRECTLY ON TOP OF OTHER RELAXERS AND STRENGTHENERS?
A. Yes. The Brazilian Blowout actually works best on chemically treated hair, and helps to improve the condition of the hair by fortifying each strand with essential amino acids.
Q. WILL MY HAIR LOSE VOLUME IF I RECEIVE THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT?
A. No, your hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the Brazilian Blowout. 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 I STILL RECEIVE A BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT IF I HAVE HIGHLIGHTS AND/OR COLOR?
A. 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.
