Brazilian blowout and keratin treatments are hair smoothing treatments used to straighten hair without causing any damage to the hair follicles. These treatments bond protein to the outer layer of the hair, which help smooth, protect, soften, and relax the hair. The bonding process takes place once a flat iron is applied.
Both treatments remove frizz, add shine, seal in color, and decrease blow dry time, but a Brazilian blowout is often the preferred option but not the best. Before we get into the reasons why, let’s discuss these treatments in detail.
Brazilian Blowout — The product used for this treatment gets its protein from a blend of amino acids. Before the product is applied the hair is shampooed and carefully dried until only a small amount of moisture remains. Once we apply the product the hair is blow dried and flat-ironed. When the hair is completely dry we shampoo the hair and completely rinse out the product. Next a conditioner is applied, rinsed out, and dried one last time.
Keratin Treatment — Similar to the Brazilian blowout keratin treatments start with shampooing the hair and drying it completely. Next the product is applied and covered with a cap for roughly 20 to 30 minutes. The hair is then blow dried and flat-ironed. Clients leave the salon with the product partially or completely in their hair and are asked to wash it out after three days.
The process only takes about 90 minutes whereas some keratin treatments take between two and three hours.
You can do whatever you want with your hair and the look will last about three months.
Keratin Treatments don’t harm your hair in any way and we love seeing the look on a client’s face when the treatment is finished.
The products I support are the Brazilian Blowout and The Uberliss Treatment.
