Brazilian Blowout is an alternative to a daily use of a straightener or undergoing chemical straightening treatments. Using keratin it creates a protective protein layer around the hair shaft that eliminate frizz and smooths the cuticle. Originally, the method was developed in Brazil, for women battling effects of hot temperatures, high sun exposure, and very humid climate. However, taming and smoothing brittle, unruly hair is not it’s only benefits. The treatment aims to rebuild hair structure, nutrition and smooth out dry and damaged hair, thus, also ensure healthy regeneration.
Read on to find how it works, to whom it’s intended and where you can get it done in Hong Kong.
Keratin is naturally produced in the hair follicles, it is the main building material of the hair shaft, called the hair’s cortex. The keratin fibers are interconnected with crosslinked sulfide bonds, thanks to which the hair is elastic and elastic. Keratin also forms part of the outer coat of the hair to provide the hair with shine and resistance. Therefore it’s lack leads, among others to the opening of hair scales and as a result to split ends. When our hair becomes dull, brittle, excessively falls out – it may mean that they lack this ingredient. The reasons for losing keratin are many: atmospheric conditions, UV radiation, hair coloring procedures, as well as everyday stylization. The treatment is recommended for anyone who has dry, brittle, damaged or dull hair, often difficult to comb it with, unnaturally inflated.
Brazilian Blowout effectively diminishes frizz, seals the cuticle, and provides armor against any external damage. Not to mention, an insanely glossy mirror-like shine after getting the treatment done, your hair will be hydrated, less frizzy, and more resilient to styling.
It works great in all types of hair – curls, waves, straight, thick or thin. The treatment can be carried out (in contrast to other methods) on colored or damaged (by chemical treatments, dying, or bleaching). It’s recommended for people with hair prone to “drizzle”, dry, fried and frizzy look that is difficult to manage.
Personalized effect. Do you want to tame the frizz but not necessarily get rid of your curls? The treatment can be tailored to your hair type and desired effect. Thus, straight or curly you can still get your hair smoother and more manageable.
No down time. There’s nothing better than leaving the salon and immediately getting back to your normal life. Unlike after other keratin treatments, with Brazilian Blowout, there aren’t any restrictions as to what you can and can’t do. Thus, you can go ahead with your normal routine, wash your hair, tie it in a ponytail, and trim it.
The effects of the treatment should last up to 4 months – possibly longer if you don’t wash your hair too often and remove shampoos that contain sulfates and chlorine. After that time when your hair returns to its natural look you should start thinking about getting it redone.
