Extending the Life of Your Brazilian Blowout

Making decisions on how best to keep your hair elegant often proves to be a difficult task. There are quite a number of hair treatment procedures with cons that could impinge on your comfort and the beauty of your hair. For instance, most keratin straightening treatments require users to take a 3-day break away from washing their hair to ensure the success of the treatment. For some people waiting as long as three days to wash their hair after receiving the treatment could be a nightmare.

On the flip side, completing the Brazilian Blowout procedure doesn’t extend beyond the salon. It doesn’t require any waiting time before you can wash your hair either. Basically, you can return to your schedule without worrying about messing the treatment up. You can exercise and put your hair in a ponytail or clip. Any way you choose to do it, your hair will most certainly remain smooth, frizz-free and radiant.

Brazilian Blowout Aftercare

Once the Brazilian blowout process completed, you need to follow a few specific rules. This, of course, refers to things you should and should not do to lengthen the lifespan of your treatment. The right aftercare and maintenance are needed to ensure that your hair continues to look good for as long as possible. Since the Brazilian Blowout is an expensive treatment, owing to its numerous benefits, extending the longevity of this treatment will also help you reduce the bill at the salon since you can stretch out the time between salon visits.

Washing Your Hair after Brazilian Blowout

Brazilian Blowouts generally last longer when there is minimal hair washing involved. Try to wash your hair up no more than thrice a week if you can. This is bound to make the effects of the treatment lasts as long as possible.

Highly experienced hairstylists and experts innumerably warn against using products with sulfate contents on the hair as such chemicals negate the effects of blowout treatment chemicals. This, in turn, expunges the protective layer of the hair. Though most of the regular shampoos used today are formulated with sulfates to create a lathering effect these shampoos will prematurely strip the Brazilian Blowout treatment out of your hair. To avoid this, make sure to always use a sulfate-free and sodium chloride-free shampoo and conditioner, preferably those formulated with natural and organic ingredients.

Brazilian Blowout Shampoo and Conditioner

Upon application or usage of quality aftercare products, your hair stays soft and frizz-free for a period of 10 to 12 weeks. The Brazilian Blowout procedure requires the use of their associated take-home product line to maintain a smooth, frizz-free manageable hair for as long as 12 weeks. This is made possible because Brazilian Blowout products, unlike most regular hair care products are sulfate and sodium chloride-free. The Brazilian Blowout aftercare line features anti-frizz shampoo, conditioner, smoothing serum and a deep conditioning masque.

The Brazilian Blowout Acai Shampoo and Conditioner contain the same complex of amino acids that can be found in the Brazilian Blowout Professional Solution. This way amino acids are deposited back into the hair with every hair wash, allowing for longer-lasting smoothing results.

Pure Brazilian Anti-Frizz Shampoo & Conditioner are sulfate and sodium chloride-free formulas that smoothen thick coarse hair and take away frizz, making hair more manageable. Both products are safe for washing hair after chemical straightening.

Brazilian Blowout and Hair Coloring

It is recommended that you color your hair before having the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment. Hair coloring can be done either before or on the same day you receive the treatment. As the treatment will seal in and further enhance hair color. If you wish to get a color service after the treatment has been done, you will need to wait at least two weeks to administer color. Prior to that, color results will not be even, due to the protective protein layer the blowout treatment coats the hair shaft with. This coating leaves little to no room for your hair to absorb the dye.

Here is a useful tip. Consider coloring your hair a shade darker than your selected color of choice. This is important as the color will fade during Brazilian Blowout treatment. Choosing a darker shade of hair coloring will afford you the exact hair color you want after the treatment is done.

It is advised that the color should only be applied to the root area after the smoothing treatment for maximum preservation.

Precautions Before/After Swimming

Before you hit the beach on a hot, sunny day, or take frequent swims in the chlorinated water you should know that these could affect your Brazilian Blowout treatment if your hair isn’t protected. Applying the Brazilian Blowout Smoothing Serum on the hair prior to swimming acts as a protective barrier. The serum also provides UVA/UVB protection and helps preserve your hair color. After exposure, rinse your hair with clean water and then reapply the Brazilian Blowout Acai Daily Smoothing Serum.

Deep Conditioning

Using a daily hair conditioner and deep conditioning your hair twice a month keeps your hair silky and healthy. After washing and “detangling”, using the deep conditioning masque produces incredible results, especially when it is applied to the hair and left on overnight. A quality deep conditioning masque infuses hair strands with essential proteins that seal in the Brazilian Blowout treatment. By doing this, you will be able to keep your hair healthy, shiny, and smooth and at the same time, lengthen the lifespan of the Brazilian blowout treatment.

Brazilian Blowout Acai Deep Conditioning Masque is designed to replenish the hair with vital moisture and deposit essential amino acids into your hair. It keeps the Brazilian blowout smooth and puts the frizz away.

Which Styling Products to Use after Brazilian Blowout Treatment?

Choosing a hair styling product must be done with a lot of scrutinies. You are required to be very selective during this search. Your hair may get heavy and oily much faster with these products as opposed to without anything. Each time you wash your hair, allow the strands to dry by air. Avoid blow-drying. If it happens that you must blow-dry, coat your strands with a heat protectant.

Brazilian Blowout Ionic Bonding Spray is designed to strengthen weakened fibers, seal the cuticle, and to enhance and prolong the results of your Brazilian Blowout. It cuts blowdrying time, prevents frizz, and protects the hair from heat and environmental damage. It also leaves your hair soft, shiny and easy to brush.

Apply a few sprays to damp, freshly washed hair before blow-drying. You need only a small amount, or else your hair may feel greasy.

Brazilian Blowout Thermal Straightening Balm can be used as a supplementary product to the Brazilian blowout process making your hair looking like you have just done the Brazilian blowout. It is supposed to be used before blow-drying and flat ironing. It is especially suitable to keep your hair smooth and shiny after your Brazilian blowout starts to wash out.

It can be used as a heat protectant and a straightening balm for hair that not received the Brazilian blowout. It protects the hair against heat tools and makes curly hair easier to straighten with a flat iron. The straightening effect is temporary and lasts until the next wash.

This straightening balm works best for wavy or curly hair that tends to get frizzy in the humidity.

How to use: Apply dime-sized product on damp hair before blow-drying and evenly distribute through your hair working from roots to ends.

If you only plan to use a blow dryer, without a flat iron, you can skip the roots to prevent weighing your hair down, especially if you have fine hair.

Be careful to apply a small amount, as too much of the product can weight down hair or make it look greasy.

Brazilian Blowout Daily Smoothing Serum is designed to smoothen, condition and detangle your hair before blow-drying. It offers heat protection and leaves your hair manageable and flowing with a gorgeous shine. It smoothens split ends, keeps the curls shapely and tames frizz. You should start with the least amount while your hair is still damp concentrating on the ends.

This formula also protects your hair from the sun and the dryness and damage associated with chlorine and salt-water.

  1. Good day

    I am currently in Auckland, New Zealand. I am new to the country and would like to know where the best place is to buy some of the above mentioned products at reasonable prices.

    I’m particularly looking for a shampoo and conditioner that is safe to use on Brazilian blowout hair and which will also nourish the hair?

    As well as the Brazilian blowout acai daily smoothing serum.

    Some advice will be much appreciated.


  2. Hello, Janine. You can buy the products online via Amazon, often for much better prices than you will find in salons. The only other place that you will find them is in salons that offer keratin treatments, and they will charge you quite a bit. Additionally, I would personally recommend the acai masque over the smoothing serum (if you’re going to choose between the two), but both are good 🙂

    Hope this helps.

  3. Can someone help me I just got the Brazilian blowout yesterday but didn’t like it after my eyes started irritating me so if I wash with regular shampoo would it take off the treatment off my hair or what are the consequences please help.

  4. don’t do it! the two may not be related and you’ll lose all the effect of the treatment. ..

  5. I like to put aloe on my head before I wash my hair, is it ok to do that when I had a Brazilian blowout?

  6. Brazilian Blow Out has made my hair start falling out. Please, somebody, tell me if my hair will stop shedding or am I doomed.

  7. Please stay away from any chemicals in hair products for a while. Visit your dermatologist if the problem exaggerates. If you want to do a straightening treatment again, consult a hair professional about mild, smoothing treatments they can offer. If you just want to combat frizz, add hydrolyzed silk proteins to your shampoo and conditioner. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s direction for the concentration levels. Keratin leave-in conditioners can help to defrizz and repair damaged hair. If you feel bad about your thinning hair, consider using a halo stale hair extension. This type of extensions is not attached to your hair and will not cause any damage or breakage. I hope this will help.
