Ins & Outs: Brazilian Blowouts

Brazilian blowouts have become all the rage recently. We’d like to address this hot topic and give you the inside scoop on this trendy treatment.

Are you:

  • Struggling to tame frizzy hair?
  • Looking to shave time off of your daily hair routine?
  • Hoping to turn heads with a stunning new look?

Then, you’re in the right place! 


What is a Brazilian Blowout?

A Brazilian Blowout is a transformative treatment that straightens your hair and leaves you with insanely glossy locks. 

It’s kind of like magic, especially for people with frizzy or curly hair. 

If you’ve been dreaming of smooth, shiny, healthy-looking hair, a Brazilian Blowout may be the perfect way to make it a reality.


How Does It Work? 

During a Brazilian Blowout, your stylist will use a liquid keratin formula to treat your entire head of hair. This formula essentially protects each strand of hair after application, making it healthier, stronger, and smoother. 

The Brazilian Blowout formula also enhances the color of your hair, leaving it sleeker and more vibrant. 

After the hair is treated, it is blow-dried and straightened to seal the product. Then, the stylist will rinse the formula out and blow-dry your hair one final time. 

You may be wondering, how much is a Brazilian Blowout? The Brazilian Blowout cost can range anywhere from $200 - $500. Be sure to read the salon’s Brazilian Blowout reviews before deciding so you have the best possible experience. 


How Long Does a Brazilian Blowout Last?

With proper hair care and maintenance, a Brazilian Blowout typically lasts three to four months. At its max, a Brazilian Blowout can last up to six months. 

There are many factors that impact how long the treatment holds, including the natural texture of your hair. If you’re serious about getting and maintaining a Brazilian Blowout, there are a few major things to note to leave those locks looking fresh as long as possible: 

  1. For the most optimal results, avoid washing your hair for 48 hours after the treatment. 
  1. Switch out any hair products that contain sulfates, chlorine, and other harsh chemicals.
  1. Try to wash your hair less often. Three times a week maximum is ideal if you’d like to extend the life of your Brazilian Blowout.

Though you may find products that advertise the ability to do a Brazilian blowout at home, the quality and length of treatments are far inferior to what you’ll get at a salon.


Do Brazilian Blowouts Work with Curly Hair?

The short answer is: Yes! Brazilian Blowouts with curls can create a major transformation. They may even have more powerful results than on previously straight hair. 

However, your texture does matter, and not all hair types will end up being *perfectly* straight. For example, if you rock thin wavy hair, you will have a straighter result than if you sport thick curly hair. But, even if your hair is not completely straight by the end of a Brazilian Blowout, it will undoubtedly be shinier, stronger, and healthier. And ultimately, you’ll be reveling in the fact that your hair is noticeably less frizzy and much easier to maintain. Your curly hair blowouts will take half the time and give off a whole new vibe.


Brazilian Blowout vs. Keratin Treatment - What’s the Difference? 

This is one of the top questions we see about Brazilian Blowouts, and we’re here to break it down for you.

Here’s the deal: Both Brazilian Blowouts and Keratin Treatments are semi-permanent hair smoothing treatments. And, as mentioned before, Brazilian Blowouts actually use a specific kind of Keratin treatment to get those fabulous results. Where they differ is in the intensity and ingredients of the treatment.

Keratin Treatments are often stronger with more concentrated ingredients but can calm down more unruly locks. The application process takes much longer to complete, and the maintenance right afterward is more stringent. However, Keratin Treatments generally last longer than Brazilian Blowouts.


Should I Get a Brazilian Hair Treatment?

At this point, all that’s left to do is find a salon! Start searching here for trustworthy, reputable, certified Brazilian Blowout salons near you.

If you want noticeably shinier, healthier, smoother hair that’s easy to maintain, this may be that perfect answer you’ve been searching for. Those Brazilian Blowout before and after photos are always dramatic - why not treat yourself and experience that stunning transformation?
