Should You Get the Brazilian Blowout? See One Reader's Hair Care Experience
Check out the transformation that takes place when a curly-haired TotalBeauty.com reader tries the treatment
The Brazilian Blowout Process"The best way to explain a Brazilian Blowout," Chase said as he began the 90-minute procedure, "is that we coat the cuticle of the hair with a high dose of amino acids, creating a protective layer around the cuticle that will smooth out all the frizz."
Unlike processes that use chemicals to get the hair straight -- there's no shortage of horror stories and cautionary tales on the Internet about "formaldehyde" treatments -- the Brazilian Blowout doesn't mess with the natural texture of your hair, it just smoothes it out, and makes curls softer and easier to manage.
"This was actually a pleasant process," Courtney says, "I'm happy to report that it didn't hurt at all or smell bad in the least."
