Changing My Hairstyle

A few years ago, a friend of mine told me that my hair was a little dated. I was kind of offended at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that she was right. I needed a change, but I wasn't sure what I wanted. I started doing a little research, and I was able to find an incredible salon near my house that offered what I was looking for. I made an appointment, and the hairstylist walked me through a litany of styles, colors, and accessories. This blog is designed to help people to learn more about what a spa or salon can do for you, so that you can change your look too.

Benefits Of A Brazilian Blowout

From shampoos and conditioners to perms and highlights, there are many products and services that are meant to improve the look and underlying health of your hair. Unfortunately, the wide array of these products and services can make maintaining your hair's look and health a bit overwhelming. In addition, many of these products and services can actually damage your hair if used excessively. Thankfully, help is available for anyone who wants to give their hair a makeover. This guide will help you understand the process of a Brazilian blowout and if the benefits are suited to your hair's needs.

The Process

Before you can understand the benefits, you need to understand what the process involves.

Depending on your specific stylist or hair professional, the process begins after a quick wash and dry of your hair. Shampooing cleans the hair, removing any dirt, oil, and dust that will affect the keratin application.

After dividing the hair into different sections, your stylist will brush a keratin solution onto your hair. The amount of solution will depend on your specific length of hair. Therefore, if you have long hair, more of the keratin solution will need to be applied to your hair.

Once the keratin is applied to each section of your hair, your stylist will blow-dry your hair on a medium heat setting. Then, a flat iron is used on the hair. The iron soothes the hair, but it also activates the keratin solution.

The hair is then washed to remove the leftover solution. Finally, your stylist will blow-dry your hair using a large round brush. Blow-drying the hair locks the keratin treatment into the hair while adding volume and style that lasts.

The process of a Brazilian blowout can be long, but the benefits are worth the wait.

The Benefits

Keratin is one of the main benefits of a Brazilian blowout. You may have heard of this protein, but you may not fully understand how it helps your hair. When applied to your hair, keratin is absorbed by the hair follicles. This helps to strengthen and enhance the hair from the inside out.

Most people who have keratin treatments or use shampoos, conditioners, and other products infused with keratin report that their hair is stronger, smoother, less frizzy, shinier, and more manageable. Of course, it is important to note that each person is different and the final results of your keratin treatment will depend on the current state of your actual hair.

If you have naturally curly hair, a Brazilian blowout can tame its unruly nature while still keeping your curls. If you want to reduce the curly nature of your hair, a Brazilian blowout can help, too. The treatment can straighten your hair while improving its overall health.

If your hair is frizzy, the keratin treatment can smooth out of the frizz, helping your hair stay in place in a relaxed, attractive manner.

Hair that is coarse can also be improved with a keratin treatment. The keratin will soften dry, coarse hair strands, improving the look of your hair while reducing the risk of breakage and hair loss.

Hair that has been damaged by excessive coloring, perms, and heat treatments can also benefit from a Brazilian blowout. The keratin application will restore damaged hair, improving its texture, strength, and shine.

Another benefit of a Brazilian blowout is how long the results last. As long as you are using shampoos that do not contain harsh ingredients like chlorine and sulfates, your Brazilian blowout/keratin treatment will last between 3 and 4 months.

If you need to improve the look, feel, or strength of your hair, consider a Brazilian blowout today. Get in touch with a company such as Detour Salon & Detour the Store for more information.
