Brazilian Blowout Explained

Millions of people are availing themselves of a Brazilian blowout, but many may know it as a keratin treatment. The process smooths the hair cuticle, minimizing frizziness and making hair easy to style. It’s a customizable treatment that utilizes liquid keratin to wrap each and every strand of hair in a protective layer.

There’s a difference between a traditional keratin treatment and a Brazilian blowout is the concentration of chemicals. A Brazilian blowout is more customizable than a straight keratin treatment. It’s also safe for color-treated hair; many individuals choose to have the treatment at the same time as they’re having their color refreshed.

Keratin is a protein that can be found in human hair and within the animal kingdom. The semi-permanent treatment lasts about 3 months and requires about 90 minutes to complete. Keratin gives hair a healthy shine, while strengthening locks and making strands less susceptible to breakage.

The treatment can be customized to simply control frizz or to relax tight curls. A specially trained stylist will apply the keratin solution, blow dry the hair, and then heat it with a flat iron to seal in the keratin. Hair is then rinsed before receiving a conditioning treatment. A keratin treatment can be applied to all the hair or to select areas.

It’s important for individuals to know that a controversy over the ingredients of keratin treatments continues to rage. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued warnings about the formaldehyde content in many keratin solutions. For individuals that choose a Brazilian blowout, the FDA also recommends that the treatment only be performed by a professional.

The good news is that there are also keratin formulas that are formaldehyde-free and achieve the same results. To maintain a Brazilian blowout, don’t wash hair too often and avoid chlorinated pools, salt water, clarifiers, and products that contain sulfates.
