HAIR TREATMENTS

You’ve heard of it, you’ve seen the dramatic before and after shots on Instagram, and you may have even looked into getting it done yourself. For some, the Brazilian Blowout has become notorious in the hair realm for its transformative (and dare we say, life-changing) qualities, especially if you spend a good hour fighting with the round brush after lathering up. There are a few similar treatments out there that adopt the moniker. We decided to answer the most common questions regarding the Brazilian Blowout treatment.

HOW LONG IT WILL LAST?

Provided that you remove the shampoos that contain sulfates and chlorine from your shower, your treatment should last anywhere from three to four months—possibly longer if you don’t need to wash your hair as regularly as some. Once it wears off, your hair will return to its natural curl pattern. “You’ll start to see it around the hairline first,” Matos says. “That’s your indicator of when it’s time to get it redone.” Even if you don’t get it touched up right away, there’s no obvious line of demarcation between the previously treated hair and new growth, unlike with other relaxing or straightening methods.

WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER THE TREATMENT?​

Unlike the post-keratin routine, there aren’t any restrictions as to what you can and can’t do in terms of activity, so you won’t have to skip out on your hot yoga class. Additionally, since the treatment is rinsed out in the salon, you can wait as long or as little as you’d like to wash it, but again, just be sure to use a sulfate- and chlorine-free formula to preserve its lifespan.

IS IT SAFE?

The treatment is safe on any hair type, and actually helps to improve shine as well as moisture levels. Everyone is concerned because of the formaldehyde in the formula, but there isn’t any more in this than would be in your nail polish. There is a very, very small amount, but with any chemical processing, there is always a chain reaction of bonding the treatment to your hair.” The only situation in which breakage does occur is when a stylist goes too hard with the flat iron, so be sure to find a stylist that knows what they are doing.
