If your hair is dry and lackluster, an innovative new hair- smoothing treatment promises to give you the manageable tresses you've always longed for. Try a Brazilian blowout, which is a treatment undertaken at beauty salons to straighten hair. The treatment makes hair look healthy and bounce with shine.
The stylist applies active keratin, a protein found in the top layer of our skin which makes it both waterproof and tough, although sometimes this is used in conjunction with formaldehyde. The formula is then sealed into the hair using a hot iron, taking away frizz, curls and unruly waves. Takes about two hours, more for longer or more unruly hair.
It is effective on every type of hair, be it dry, straight, thick, fine, brittle or chemically over-processed. You can even apply the formula on top of other relaxers and straighteners.
The best thing about this treatment is that harsh chemicals, such as formaldehyde and other known carcinogens are not put to use. The treatment not only improves the quality of your locks but also provides nourishment to your most prized possession, that is, your hair.
Also, unlike relaxers, texturizers and perms, this technique allows the hair to go back to its natural state after about three months. This means, you won't have to deal with the awkwardness of two different textures as new hair grows in over time.
Having smooth and shiny locks will not just be a dream now. Anyone can now visit the nearest beauty salon and get the treatment done. Once treated, the hair becomes more manageable and does not need restyling and redoing often. Working out, swimming and exercising can never make your hair look bad.
