If you’re like a lot of people, the summer heat can really do a number on your hair – to the point where it’s a mess of frizz and any style you try just won’t hold up! It’s frustrating when you can’t get the frizz under control, but thankfully, there’s a great solution here at Village Salon & Spa – a Brazilian blowout.
What is a Brazilian blowout?
A Brazilian blowout is a smoothing treatment that infuses vital protein – which for your hair, is keratin – directly into your strands to smooth over rough patches on each strand for a smooth, shiny finish. Your hair will be easier to style with no frizz and an incredible shine that really shows off your hair color.
It’s called a Brazilian blowout because in addition to the keratin, the other ingredients in the special Brazilian blowout formula are all botanicals that are native to Brazil. Each ingredient is chosen for its moisturizing and strengthening properties for your hair for a smooth, beautiful look that lasts.
How does a Brazilian blowout work?
Before understanding how a Brazilian blowout works for frizz, it’s important to understand how your hair gets frizzy in the first place. Each hair strand is made up of an inner core and an outer layer called a cuticle, that protects the core structure. The cuticle is made up of a bunch of cells that layer over each other – sort of like fish scales or roof shingles, with each cell stacking on the other and clinging together tightly.
When something happens to loosen these bonds, like heat damage, those ‘scales’ start to come apart, exposing the hair’s core. When the cuticle is damaged, it looks frayed like a rope end, and multiple hairs can start to tangle together as the loose ends stick to each other. The result is frizz – and tangles – and impossible-to-style hair. Even your hair color starts to get affected because instead of a smooth strand that reflects light well, frayed cuticles make your hair color look dull.
When you get a professional Brazilian blowout, the special ingredients coat your hair’s cuticles with bonding proteins and moisturize them with special botanicals, making each strand soft and smooth.
At Village Salon & Spa, we also offer a Brazilian blowout split-end treatment, which helps repair split ends, another cause of troublesome frizz.
Who needs a Brazilian blowout?
Anyone with dry, damaged, or frizzy hair can benefit from the effective ingredients in a professional Brazilian blowout treatment. A Brazilian blowout is a smoothing treatment, not a straightener like some keratin treatments, so even people with curly or wavy hair can benefit from a Brazilian blowout treatment. In fact, Brazilian blowouts work great for long, wavy hair to get rid of the frizz that is often a problem for that hair type.
It's important to tell your Village Salon & Spa stylist exactly what results you want from your Brazilian blowout before your appointment, since it is possible to straighten your hair or leave it wavy, depending on the technique used.
How long does a Brazilian blowout last, and is it hard to care for?
With the right care, a professional Brazilian blowout can give you results that last up to four months. It’s important to care for your hair using only salon-trusted professional products that are recommended by your Village Salon & Spa stylist for the best results. If you frequently swim in chlorinated swimming pools, your stylist may recommend additional products or a swim cap to maintain a smooth, healthy finish for your hair.
With a Brazilian blowout, there’s not much special care required beyond what you would do for your hair otherwise – avoid excess heat, use only professional products formulated for your hair type, and avoid excessive exposure to heated styling tools.
Other types of keratin treatments require additional care, like avoiding tied-back hairstyles or shampooing within days of treatment. But for Brazilian blowouts, aftercare is much easier.
How long will my Brazilian blowout appointment take?
It takes about an hour and a half for most Brazilian blowout treatments, although this might vary based on the length and volume of your hair. Your expert Village Salon & Spa stylist can explain everything you need to know to prepare for your appointment when you come in for a consultation.
