Frequently Asked Questions About The Brazilian Blowout    

386-760-3283

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

A. 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. 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 Acai 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.

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. Will my hair return to its original state after the Brazilian Blowout treatment has completed its life cycle?

A. 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 fortifying and conditioning nature of the product.

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. 

Q. Can you swim in the pool or ocean after you have the Brazilian Blowout treatment?

A. 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.

Q. How soon can you touch up your color after you receive the Brazilian Blowout Treatment?

A. You should wait at least two weeks to administer color to the hair after you receive the Brazilian Blowout, as the color will not deposit as effectively with the protein protective layer provided by the smoothing treatment.

If you need to touch up color / roots in between treatments, this is ok, 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 color through the entire head of hair, make sure that the you are using the Brazilian Blowout masque at least once or twice a week to fortify the treatment back into the hair.

Q. How soon can I wash my hair after the Brazilian Blowout treatment?

A. You can wash your hair immediately after the Brazilian Blowout treatment, or as you would normally.

Q. Can I receive the Brazilian Blowout if I have over-processed blonde hair? What if my hair is platinum blonde?

A. It is important for your stylist to assess the condition of your hair to make sure it is in a healthy enough state to apply extreme heat through the use of a flat iron. If it is felt that the hair is in questionable condition, your certified stylist will adjust the temperature of the flat iron accordingly. The stylist will have to determine the appropriate amount of heat to apply.

Q. Can you perform a Brazilian Blowout on extensions?

A. 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.

Q. Can I receive a Brazilian Blowout if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

A. 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.

Q. How soon can I receive another Brazilian Blowout treatment after I receive my first treatment?

A. The Brazilian Blowout is just like a conditioning treatment, so you will not harm the hair by performing them too soon or too much, however, please remember that you can only fill the cuticle to its capacity.

Q. What is the active chemical in the Brazilian Blowout solution that makes it work so well?

A. The Brazilian Blowout smooths 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, smooths the cuticle and repairs any preexisting damage.

Fighting for Stylists & Salons


UPDATE..
Brazilian Blowout Proven Safe, "Contains no Formaldehyde." test results released. OSHA Confirms...


 

LOS ANGELES, CA -- November 9, 2010) -  The following statements are attributed to Brazilian Blowout -- Last week, Brazilian Blowout (www.brazilianblowout.com) formally initiated legal proceedings in response to the Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services, Occupational Safety and Health Division's (Oregon OSHA) inaccurate and unsupported conduct. Brazilian Blowout intends to seek an award of punitive damages to dissuade Oregon OSHA (OR-OSHA) from acting so recklessly again in the future. It is the company's intent to distribute all awarded proceeds to the salons and stylists who have supported Brazilian Blowout in the face of this adversity.

 

Flaws were immediately found in the testing methods first used by Oregon OSHA. Upon this first set of tests conducted by OR-OSHA, the organization issued an alert to Oregon hair salons about Brazilian Blowout's products. Test results publicized in OR-OSHA's release of Oct 08, 2010 are inaccurate. OR-OSHA claimed to have found levels of Formaldehyde in Brazilian Blowout Professional Solution in "upwards of 10 percent or more in some samples." OR-OSHA and its officials failed to distinguish between Formaldehyde and Methylene Glycol and published the percentage as Formaldehyde only.

 

The only method that accurately measures Formaldehyde in water based cosmetic products is called "13C-NMR," and OR-OSHA did not conduct this correct type of testing. Had OSHA performed this test, they would have discovered that only traces of Formaldehyde are detected, in this case .0011%.

 

On Oct 29th, OR-OSHA released results of a comprehensive air monitoring study conducted across seven salons, each case yielded exposure levels that are safely below OSHA's Action Level, Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL), and Short Term Exposure Limit.

 

Despite these findings, OR-OSHA continues to misrepresent to the public that the Brazilian Blowout product is unacceptable and dangerous. This misconduct and these misrepresentations have resulted in immeasurable damage to the tens of thousands of stylists who are successfully providing Brazilian Blowout services throughout the world.
