Brazilian blowout anti-frizz straightening treatment

Brazilian blowout anti-frizz hair straightening treatment Singapore
The brazilian blowout anti-frizz straightening treatment is getting increasingly popular in Singapore. So let’s find out what it is exactly and where you can get this treatment in Singapore.

What is a brazilian blowout anti-frizz straightening treatment?

Many of us here in Singapore struggle with frizzy hair that is unmanageable. As we all know blowdrying and ironing our hair on a regular basis does a lot of damage to the hair. To the rescue comes this new hair treatment. It is basically a new form of hair straightening treatment that turns curly and frizzy hair into lovely tresses that will look shiny, straight and smooth.


What is the procedure

The procedure is quite simple: First  your hair is washed with mild schampoo after which keratin is applied to the hair cuticles. After that the formula is sealed into the hair with a blow dryer or flat iron. You then have to leave the product in your hair for as long as possible but at least 3 days.
After the treatment it is best to maintain the benefits for as long as possible with a special shampoo and conditioner. The longivity of the procedure depends on your hair but my personal experience is that the frizz stays on for about 3-4 months, depending on how much you wash your hair.

Advantages

  • The main advantage is that no harsh chemicals are used so the treatment is not so damaging to the hair as some of the other available treatments
  • You will get straight, smooth and healthy looking hair in a short amount of time
  • As opposed to the Japanese Straightening Perm the brazilian blowout does not need to kill any hair and instead of growing out, the Brazilian method ensures that the hair fades out and this encourages fresh growth of hair.
  • Feel like a star! It is claimed that celebrities like Halle Berry, Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Ritchie are all using it.

Disadvantages

  • The main downside to this treatment is that you may need to wait, after the treatment has been completed, for up to seventy two hours before you can wash your hair again and the smell is not that pleasant! So be sure not to do this treatment before an important event or party.
  • It is not cheap. Expect to pay well over $200 (depending on the length of your hair)

Duration and after care

The Brazilian blowout anti-frizz hair straightening treatment takes about two and a half hours to complete. It is recommended that you use aftercare shampoo and conditioner products at home to prolong the effect of the treatment.

    Great article! I am a Brazilian Blowout Specialist in Los Angeles, and I’d like to clear up some common misconceptions mentioned here. Brazilian Blowout is a trademarked, BRAND NAME. It is the one that Nicole RIchie, Lindsay Lohan, Halle Berry, Ashley Tisdale, Melanie Brown and Bridget Marquardt have had, and the one whose shampoo you linked to.

    BUT–Brazilian Blowout does NOT make you wait any time before you can wash your hair. If you are required to wait before doing this, the treatment you have had is NOT Brazilian Blowout.

    I don’t know if the real thing is actually available in Singapore. There are other keratin hair treatments which are good too, which give similar results. But it is only fair the clients know WHAT is being used on their hair, not to falsely advertise a brand name and use a different product.

    Thanks for your detailed comment Jordana. The treatment here is definitely advertised as the brazilian blowout. However, I had not realised that Brasilian blowout was a specific brand name. I will need to ask next time!

    I’m glad you love your hair, whatever treatment was done to it. But for legal reasons, I would advise the salon to stop using that name. I don’t know how trademarks work Internationally, but you might want to mention it to them.

    Here in Brazil the treatment’s known as Escova Progressiva, although only one product actually uses that name. I think it’s a similar situation to the Brazilian Blowout thing.
    One company grabbed a name that’s become universally recognised as an umbrella description for a host of very similar (basically the same) products.
    Hence one product is called Brazilian Blowout (and here in Brazil, where the treatment was created it’s called Escova Progressiva by the way), but a bunch of other treatments offer similar results and use the name.
    I actually run a company exporting Brazilian hair products and I certainly agree that the treatment (whatever name we’re going to give it) is becoming very popular in Singapore. We’ve noticed a big spike in customers on the island, and all over south-east Asia, where women are using it to battle the humid environment’s effects on their hair.
    Anyway, I really wanted to congratulate you on the article, which I stumbled across today, and to let you readers know that my own blog has lots of information on Keratin straightening including tips and a how to guide.

    Best,
