Brazilian Blowout FAQ

Brazilian Blowout Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Who is the best candidate for the Brazilian Blowout?
A. 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.

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

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

Q. Is the Brazilian Blowout going to make my hair straight?
A. 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.

Q. How long does the Brazilian Blowout last?
A. The Brazilian Blowout will last for 10-12 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.

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

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

Q. Can you color your hair the same day you receive a Brazilian Blowout?
A. Yes, however, you must color your hair prior to having the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.

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

Quick Tips for Maintaining Your Silver/Ash/Gray Hair Color.

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. Avoid heat styling. In addition to causing additional damage to your hair, the heat will also cause your silver color to fade over time.

6. Towel Dry and avoid high heat blow dryer.

7. If your hair is frizzy or needs a little bit more help, smooth on a bit more hair serum.

Hair Smoothing vs. Hair Straightening

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!

DO YOU NEED AMINO ACIDS OR A KERATIN TREATMENT?

What are amino acids?

Amino acids are a highly necessary component of the body’s processes. Many amino acids can be naturally made by the body, and they are the basic building blocks of protein chains. They function as the basic building blocks of the body supporting the digestive process and heart functions. Other amino acids, also known as essential amino acids, must be supplied to the body through the food we eat. A diet rich in meat, dairy, seafood, nuts, and plant-derived foods are great sources.

Amino acids are key to hair growth and retention. Both L-Methionine and L-Cysteine are known to combat hair loss by supplying sulfur to the hair cells.  In fact, the basic structure of the keratin within hair is made up of amino acids joined together by chemical bonds also known as peptide bonds. Therefore they are a key element to the strength of the hair fiber. There is no question that amino acids are essential to hair growth, hair strength, and length retention.

What is keratin?

Keratin is the hard protein that makes up the structure of the hair built by 18 amino acids. This high sulfur, high fibrous protein can be built through a healthy diet and can be nourished via healthy hair care products and gentle styling and hair care methods. Protecting the integrity of the hair is important but unfortunately excessive heat styling, extreme tension from hair braiding and weaving, product abuse, or any other harmful methods can affect the strength of the hair strand.

As a result, keratin treatments have entered the scene purposed to strengthen the hair shaft and restore the hair’s resilience through a very intentional method. Keratin is bound to the hair with conditioners and keratin to smooth the surface of the hair and prevent frizz. This temporary method helps the hair to be more manageable and require less effort and time when styling. After cleansing with a clarifying shampoo, a solution is typically applied to the hair and left to sit based on the desired effect. The hair is then blow-dried and flat ironed. Strict instructions are given regarding when to perform your next cleansing and conditioning ritual. This treatment procedure could be harmful to weak hair, not because the keratin compounds are harmful, but the intense heat of the blow-dryer and flat iron may be too much for weak and damaged hair to withstand.

Amino acids vs. keratin

Both amino acids and keratin are essential for hair to even exist. Interestingly enough, you cannot have one and not have the other. The presence of amino acids will bring about keratin rich hair growth while keratin treatments are available to adhere keratin compounds to the outer hair shaft to strengthen and smooth the hair. Are both procedures great? Absolutely, yet within reason. Knowing the current state of your hair and its most pressing needs will help you determine if a boost in your body’s amino acids or an external keratin treatments would be better for you!

Which one’s right for you?

EAT MORE FOODS WITH AMINO ACIDS IF…

If your hair is weak as it grows in, then you need strengthening at the developmental stages of hair growth. You will know this if you observe the weak areas to not only exist at the ends but also towards your roots. A boost in amino acids within your body could help produce a stronger set of strands, given there are no other medical hindrances to your hair growth or excessive friction in your hair maintenance methods.

TRY A KERATIN TREATMENT IF…

On the other hand, if your body is producing strong hair, yet damage is evident due to excessive chemicals, heat styling, or other harmful hair practices, a keratin treatment could be an option. Typically women with textured hair that like to straighten their hair with heat, desire less frizz, and enhanced manageability, and have moderately strong hair are the best candidates for this treatment.

Unsure where you fit in? Start by seeing a trusted licensed cosmetologist that has experience with your hair type. If your needs are beyond his or her expertise, see a licensed trichologist or dermatologist to determine the proper path for you to take!
