If you’ve always had curly hair, but wanted to change it up a bit, Brazilian blowouts can be the answer to your problem. Maybe you’ve seen before and after photos on Instagram or our website. Maybe you’ve had a friend recommend you to our site to check it out. Whatever the case may be, a Brazilian Blowout can be a life-changing and transformative treatment. While especially effective in the Winter, a Brazilian Blowout can make any type of hair appear radically different during any time of the year; from super curly thick hair, to frizzy and fine hair, this type of treatment can work for anybody. If you’ve never heard of a Brazilian Blowout, we’re here for you. Located on Grand Ave (near Old Town), we’re here to help with any hair treatment service you need.
What is a Brazilian Blowout? The Brazilian Blowout is a type of liquid keratin treatment that bonds to your hair. This liquid formula can effectively seal cuticles and loose ends, diminish your frizz, and provide protection against external and environmental hazards. Aptly named, the treatment DID originate in Brazil, and uses many ingredients that are indigenous to the country. Combining annatto seed, açai berry and camu camu, the treatment will leave your hair hydrated and ready to tackle the day. This combination of powerful ingredients can create a powerful, glossy shine, make your hair more resilient to heat styling and also make your hair less frizzy.
Keratin treatment or Brazilian Blowout?
Both treatments effectively do the same thing: both keratin treatments and Brazilian Blowouts eliminate frizz and smooth out the hair. In fact, there’s not much of a difference between the two. Both treatments smooth the hair, remove frizz, decrease blow-drying time and enhance shine. However, there are minor differences. Brazilian Blowouts tend to leave your natural texture in while also removing frizz. In a traditional Keratin treatment, it calms the natural curls of your hair more and also takes away visibly more volume than a Brazilian Blowout.

Are Brazilian Blowouts safe?
This type of treatment works on all hair types, and actually improves moisture levels and shine. Many people are concerned with some formulas that contain formaldehyde. However, there isn’t any more of this ingredient in the treatment than would be in your nail polish. The only way breakage would occur is if a stylist goes too hard and long on the flat iron. All of our blowout specialists are highly trained to prevent this from happening. The process does not take very long. Overall, it is only about an hour to an hour and a half. Working section by section, the formula is applied root to tip, then blow-dried and finally heated by a flat iron.
How long does it last?
A Brazilian blowout should last about three to four months. Once you see the treatment start to dissipate from around the hairline, that’s when you know it’s time to get your treatment redone.
