DOS & DON’TS
DO use a sulphate-free shampoo and conditioner after having the Brazilian Blowout. Sulphate-free products are easier on the scalp and hair and won’t strip their natural oils. They will also prolong the treatment. Ask your salon to recommend a few brands.
DO apply a heat protectant spray before using a heated tool (straightener, curling tongs or hairdryer) – this will also help make your Blowout last longer.
DO wait 24–48 hours before washing your hair post-treatment. This makes the treatment more effective. If your hair is looking dirty, spritz some dry shampoo on the roots.
DO let your stylist know if you’re pregnant or taking specific medication, as it is advised not to have the treatment in such cases.
DON’T participate in heavy exercise or work up a sweat after treatment.
DON’T think that the Blowout is used on natural hair only. It can also be applied to hair extensions – but consult your hairstylist beforehand.
DON’T put your hair up in clips or in a ponytail as this may leave kinks. Try not to ‘disturb’ the Blowout.
