Most women want their hair to always look blown and well-groomed. However, it is not easy to realize this especially these days when the summer months make itself felt better. After hours of dealing with both blow dryers and straighteners, hair that deteriorates due to moisture and sweat in the air is a nightmare for all of us. Even if we give a good shape to our hair at the barber or home, the first beautiful state of our hair will deteriorate within hours. For this reason, procedures that prevent hair from deterioration have become frequently preferred in recent years.
If your hair is wavy or curly, but you want it to be straight, one of the options you have is to have a Brazilian Blowout. You must have heard of the Brazilian Blowout application in recent years. Using a Brazilian Blowout on hot and humid days when your hair can easily get spoiled despite a blow dryer or straightener can save you a lot of trouble. Thanks to this application, your hair can stay straight for months. However, you should have this application done considering both its benefits and harms.
Although Brazilian Blowout is usually done in hairdressers, it can be done at home. Of course, it is very important to start with quality materials. Let's take a detailed look at what it is, in what terms it benefits and possible harms before we start applying the Brazilian Blowout.
The Brazilan Blowout is a permanent hair straightening application. Just as the hair is curled for months with a perm, you can think of Brazilian Blowout as the opposite of perm. If your hair is curly or wavy, this application is for you. Of course, it is necessary to use a number of chemicals to provide a permanent flatness in this type of hair. If your hair gets puffy and electrified, the Brazilian blow-dry can save you time by straightening your hair, although it does not prevent it completely. With a Brazilian Blowout, your hair strands will be straight so you can spend less time styling them.
Chemicals and a special shampoo are used to make Brazilian Blowout. Chemicals that stay in your hair for hours playing with the structure of your hair, allowing wavy or curly strands to stay straight. Although the length of time your hair will remain straight varies depending on your hair type, there is a 5-6 month life span.
If you prefer to apply at home instead of going to the hairdresser, you must first provide the necessary materials. First of all, you need to buy keratin from hairdressing salons or online. You should also have a sulfate-free shampoo, a hair straightener along with a fine comb.
After taking the ingredients, first, wash your hair with a sulfate-free shampoo. Then, after waiting with a towel to remove the excess water from your hair, let it dry instead of a hot blow dryer. Divide your hair into tufts and start applying keratin, ending at least two fingers away from your scalp, depending on the type and length of your hair. With a fine comb, let the keratin penetrate your hair well. After applying the keratin all over your hair, collect it with a bone and wait for twenty minutes. Then, blow-dry your hair slowly. While doing this, make sure to sit in an airy place where there is air exchange. Then, depending on whether your hair is thin or thick stranded, with your straightener that you set between 200-230 degrees, go over your hair strands for 8-9 times. Do not wear hairpins or apply any other treatment to your hair after straightening. If you straighten with a straightener in the same way on the 2nd and 3rd day of your keratin application, your Brazilian Blowout will be more permanent and your hair will be smoother. You can wash your hair at the earliest four days after straightening. It is very important that you do not use sulfate-free shampoos in order not to spoil the Blowout. However, after four days, you can care for your hair with care oils.
Although the Brazilian blowout is a practical application and saves time, the presence of high amounts of formaldehyde in some products may be harmful for health. Formaldehyde is a chemical generally used in the industrial sector. This substance, which ensures that the shape given to the hair does not deteriorate, evaporates while the hair is straightened or using a blow dryer, and can be harmful to the eyes, nose, and throat. For this reason, you should pay attention to the product you will use when you go to the hairdresser, and that the product you will buy at home does not contain formaldehyde. Otherwise, while you want to have beautiful hair in the short term, you may encounter bad results in the long term.
If you want to extend the use of the Brazilian blowout, you need to pay attention to some points. The permanence of the Brazilian blowout will change depending on your hair type and usage style and the product you will use in the application. After the Brazilian blow-dry process, tidying up your hair tightly, highlighting, or perming will reduce its lifespan and damage the hair. If you avoid such movements, you can use the Brazilian blow-dry for 6-8 months instead of a few months.
