Brazilian Blowout vs Keratin

Brazilian Blowout vs. Keratin – Distinguishing between the two treatments can be tricky. So, it’s important you receive the right information if you’re looking for any kind of smoothing treatment.

Both treatments essential aim to do the same thing, which is to eliminate frizz and smoothen your hair by temporarily coating the outer layer of the hair. But they differ when it comes to intensity.

Brazilian blowout and keratin treatments are hair smoothing treatments. They are use to straighten hair without causing any damage to the hair. These treatments bond protein to the outer layer of the hair. Thus, 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. However, a Brazilian blowout is often the preferred option. Before we get into the reasons why (Brazilian Blowout vs Keratin), let’s discuss these treatments in detail.

Why Brazilian Blowout?

The product used for this treatment gets its protein from a blend of amino acids. The results are incredible. Before applying the product, the hair undergoes shampoo and blow dry. After the application of the product, the blow drying and flat iron steps takes place. Also, when the hair is completely dry we shampoo the hair and completely rinse out the product. Finally we apply the bonding spray, rinse it out, and dry the hair one last time.

Why Keratin Treatment?

Similar to the Brazilian blowout keratin treatments start with shampooing the hair and drying it completely. Next, the application of the product is done with a shower cap between 20 to 30 minutes. Then, the hair is blow dried and flat-ironed. Clients leave the salon with the product in their hair and they cannot wash until after three days.

Benefits of Brazilian Blowout

One of the biggest benefits of receiving a Brazilian blowout is it is a lot more convenient. The process only takes about 90 minutes. Whereas, other keratin treatments take between two and three hours to finish and you still need to wash out the product after three days. Brazilian blowouts does not harm your hair in any way.

Another benefit of getting a Brazilian blowout is that the process is complete as soon as you leave the salon. You can do whatever you want with your hair and the look will last up to twelve weeks. As mentioned earlier, other keratin treatments require you to wait three full days before rinsing out the product at home. During that time you cannot do anything, such as putting your hair behind your ears or wearing barrettes or bobby pins.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the best candidate for the Brazilian Blowout?

It has been our experience, that good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair.

We have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine/course/frizzy/curly), as well as hair that has been permed, Japanese straightened and extensions. In doing so, we have found that with proper communication and a well considered application, everyone can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.

What kind of look will you get from the Brazilian Blowout?

The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment.

Can I still receive a Brazilian Blowout if I have highlights and/or color?

Yes, the Brazilian Blowout will actually improve the health of color-treated/highlighted hair by conditioning the hair while sealing the cuticle for enhanced color, reduced frizz and radiant shine.

Is the Brazilian Blowout going to make my hair straight?

If your hair is wavy, the Brazilian Blowout will make your hair appear naturally straight and healthy. If your hair is very curly, it will minimize frizz while enhancing the appearance of the natural wave/curl. If you have straight, frizzy hair, this treatment will eliminate frizz and promote radiant shine.

How long does the Brazilian Blowout last?

The Brazilian Blowout will last up to 12 weeks if the Açai After-Care Maintenance product line is used. The Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last. This also depends on your aftercare maintenance and activities. Please consult with your stylist for more information.

Can you apply the Brazilian Blowout directly on top of other relaxers and strengtheners?

Yes. The Brazilian Blowout actually works best on chemically treated hair, and helps to improve the hairs condition by fortifying each strand with essential amino acids. The Brazilian Blowout works great directly on top of a relaxer. Perform the relaxer first, Brazilian Blowout next, and then neutralize at the very end of both treatments. The Brazilian Blowout is great to perform when someone is trying to move away from having relaxers or Japanese straighteners. It puts movement back into the hair, allowing the hair to look its best.

Will my hair lose volume if I receive the Brazilian Blowout?

No, your hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the Brazilian Blowout. Your hair will maintain its natural volume and you will still receive great bend and memory when blow-drying and/or using a curling iron.

Can you color your hair the same day you receive a Brazilian Blowout?

Yes, however, you must color your hair prior to having the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.

What is NOT a Brazilian Blowout?

If you were asked not to wash the same day when you had the treatment, it is not a Brazilian Blowout product. The products must appear similar to the photo below.Brazilian Blowout Manila

Is Brazilian Blowout and Keratin treatment the same?

Straight answer is NO. The Brazilian Blowout uses amino acids—which are much smaller molecules—allowing the treatment to be rinsed out the same day. Keratin must crystallize over 72 hours. This is one of the biggest differences between a Brazilian Blowout and a keratin treatment.

Is Brazilian Blowout a Brand or a type of treatment?

There’s a big misconception about the Brazilian Blowout being a treatment. It is a BRAND of product that provides hair smoothing and frizz reduction treatment. Some salons and parlors uses the “Brazilian Blowout” as a classification of a treatment to promote a non-Brazilian Blowout brand or a knock-off (fake Brazilian Blowout) brands. If you want to make sure you are getting the Brand as your hair treatment, we recommend checking with Beauty Lane Philippines for the list of salons they supply this product.

Quick Tips for Maintaining Your Silver, Ash, or Gray Hair Color

The darker your natural hair color, the longer it takes to lighten. First of, in order to achieve a beautiful ash gray hair color, the hair must first be close to almost white. Also, In order to lighten hair safely, it’s best to go slow and do it in stages. In some cases, it may require several visits to the salon. And with time in between for the hair to recover, and to lighten it to the correct stage.

If you need to purchase toning hair care products, you may visit SimplyBeauty.ph for your hair care needs delivered to your doorsteps.

And here are the tips:

  • Accept that you’re going to be living with damaged and/or dry hair. The required bleaching or pre-lightening means there’s no way to prevent damage, but using good hair care products will help your hair maintain health in between. If your salon has an Olaplex treatment, we highly recommend adding this treatment during the pre-lightening color procedure.
  • Hold off on shampooing as much as possible. If your hair is oily, but not necessarily dirty, try a dry shampoo instead. This helps you keep your silver color longer.
  • When you do shampoo, use a toning (purple or violet) shampoo. Choose one that doesn’t turn to lather too quickly. If it does, the purple dye will wash out and lighten, which isn’t as effective.
  • If you find after using a toning shampoo that you have spots that seem a little more blue or purple than others, you may not be applying the shampoo evenly. Mix some water into your shampoo and the thinner texture will be easier to work through your hair.
  • Avoid heat styling. In addition to causing additional damage to your hair, the heat will also cause your silver color to fade over time.
  • Towel Dry and avoid high heat blow dryer.
  • If your hair is frizzy or needs a little bit more help, smooth on a bit more hair serum.

Does your hair become unmanageable after every wash? Or is it so curly that combing spells trouble for you? If yes, then some hair care treatments like hair smoothing or hair straightening might be the only option for you. Though both the processes of hair smoothing and hair straightening result in sleek and manageable hair, they have a slight difference.

Before we figure out the difference between hair straightening and smoothing, let us give you a brief on them first!

What is Hair Smoothing?

Hair smoothing primarily is a hair care treatment that leaves hair smoother and silkier than before without changing the natural hair type. It is mostly just an alignment technique. If you have dull hair with split ends and want to make them manageable, this is the perfect option. Both natural and cosmetic ways offer the same results of making your hair straight.

What is Hair Straightening?

Hair straightening is primarily a styling method that also untangles unruly locks. There are a many natural products and ways to straighten your hair, but cosmetic hair straightening treatments seem to be more in demand. This treatment not only makes your hair more manageable, but it also gives you the much desired straight hair look.
When hair care is the topic, one of the most discussed issues is hair smoothing vs. hair straightening. Which is the better option?
Why Hair Smoothing over Hair Straightening?

Hair experts put hair smoothing ahead of hair straightening in some cases. This is simply a call taken on what is the end result you seek. If you’re looking to just improve the texture and look of your hair without changing your natural hair type, then smoothing is the choice that they will suggest.

Hair straightening requires the use chemicals as it is not easy to change the ways of your natural hair. If you have curls, then the bonds need to be broken and reset to straight which means the use of both chemicals and heat. And that definitely spells a certain amount of hair damage. And if you can treat your hair to a better condition without damaging it further, then why not?
Why Hair Straightening Over Hair Smoothing?

This is a process that will be recommended to you if your main aim is to have straight hair along with the prospect having manageable hair. When you keep smoothing your hair then over a period of time, your curls will become waves but the chances of it going straight are very poor. This is a result that only straightening can give you. This is the difference between straightening and smoothing. And this is where hair straightening beats hair smoothing.

The Verdict:

It is your choice that counts!

If you’re looking at keeping your natural look and improving your hair texture to make it more manageable, then hair smoothing should be your choice.

If you’re looking to go for a hair makeover and try out the straight hair, then hair straightening is best choice. There is nothing wrong with that. Straight hair is easier to maintain and in this way you get to eat the cake and the cherry too! But keep in mind that chemically treated hair needs more care and love, so make sure you give the TLC it needs!
