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 it took prior to receiving the treatment.
Yes, the Brazilian Blowout will actually improve the health of colour-treated/highlighted hair by conditioning the hair while sealing the cuticle for enhanced colour, reduced frizz and radiant shine.
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 minimise 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.
The Brazilian Blowout will last for 10-12 weeks if the Acai After – Care Maintenance product range 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.

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.
Will my hair return to its original state after the Brazilian Blowout treatment has completed its life cycle?
Yes, the hair will revert to its original state once the Brazilian Blowout treatment has completed its life cycle of 10-12 weeks, however, the condition of the hair will actually improve as a result of the strengthening and conditioning nature of the product.
Yes, however, you must colour your hair prior to having the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment. If you are colouring hair dark brunette or red, you will want to colour the hair a shade darker than you otherwise would, as the hair colour will experience fading during the Brazilian Blowout treatment.
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/coarse/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 well-considered application, everyone can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.
You should wait at least two weeks to administer colour to the hair after you receive the Brazilian Blowout, as the colour will not grip as effectively with the protein protective layer provided by the smoothing treatment.
If your clients need to touch up colour/roots in between treatments, that’s fine as the hair being touched up is new growth and does not have the treatment on it. If you need to highlight or pull the full colour through the entire head of hair, make sure that the client is using the Brazilian Blowout masque at least once or twice a week to fortify the treatment back into the hair.
Yes, you can swim in either the pool or the ocean after you receive the Brazilian Blowout treatment, however, the treatment may be slightly compromised if you swim on a regular basis. We recommend that you apply the Brazilian Blowout Smoothing Serum on the hair prior to swimming in order to act as a protective barrier to maintain the smoothest possible result for the longest period of time.
Can I receive the Brazilian Blowout if I have over-processed blonde hair? What if my hair is platinum blonde?
It is important for every stylist to assess the condition of the client’s hair to make sure it is in a healthy enough state to apply extreme heat through the use of straighteners. If the hair is in questionable condition, the recommendation is to turn the straighteners down from 450 degrees to approx. 380-420. The stylist will have to determine the appropriate amount of heat to apply.
Yes, the Brazilian Blowout performs perfectly on hair extensions. It would be best for the stylist to perform the Brazilian Blowout separately on the extensions prior to putting them into the hair. If you wish to perform the treatment on extensions that are already in the hair, the stylist will need to be extremely careful when applying the solution to the bonded area. Brazilian Blowout solution acts as a conditioning agent, and may create slip resulting in the extensions separating from the hair. If the stylist is careful and works to first separate the extension hair from the client’s own hair, a great result can be achieved.
There have been no clinical tests performed on the safety of performing the Brazilian Blowout on pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding. As a result, we do advise against pregnant or breastfeeding women receiving the Brazilian Blowout treatment.
The Brazilian Blowout is just like a conditioning treatment, so you will not harm the hair by performing them too soon or too often, however, please remember that you can only fill the cuticle to its capacity. If a client wants to come back for another treatment, or it did not take to the hair the way it should have, you can have the client come back in the 10 days following the first treatment.
The Brazilian Blowout smoothes the hair through the use of a proprietary polymer system that bonds amino acids to the surface of the hair. This treatment is 100% salon safe. What makes the Brazilian Blowout treatment effective is our use of the Super Nutrient Complex in conjunction with a proprietary polymer system. This combination is what rounds the follicle, smoothes the cuticle and repairs any pre-existing damage.
How is the Brazilian Blowout different from the Japanese straightening method many people are familiar with?
Japanese hair straightening changes the actual structure of the hair. In doing so, there is an obvious difference between the new hair growth and the hair that has been treated, resulting in a life-long commitment to straightening or cutting hair off (if client is unhappy with the result). This service can also leave the hair flat, too straight and with little to no shine or lustre. The hair’s integrity seems to be compromised, and after a few treatments, the hair appears to be in an unhealthy state.
