DOS & DON’TS

Fairlady - - PUT TO THE TEST -

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.
