A Brazilian Blowout is a branded salon treatment done with its own range of products and performed in salon by a trained hairstylist. The treatment will smooth the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft which seals the hair cuticle and will eliminate frizz.

Brazilian Blowouts consist of applying a liquid protein solution to the hair. This solution adds a protective layer around your strands, coating the cuticles so that they appear fuller, smoother and shinier. These treatments last up to 12 weeks depending on your hair type and post-treatment care.

It is possible to create similar results with a specifically created DIY friendly Brazilian Keratin Home Kit. The effects won't be quite as strong as a professional formula, but you also run significantly less risk of running into serious health complications from improper use.

Genuine Brazilian Blowout solutions are not something that you can buy from any local beauty or online store, since they contain harsh chemicals. These treatments usually contain formaldehyde which is a cancer-causing chemical and is not safe to use for pregnant women. Aside from formaldehyde, these formulas contain a number of other strong, potentially hazardous ingredients

When purchasing a Brazilian Keratin Home Kit we strongly recommend choosing a product which is Formaldehyde Free. Be sure to read all of the instructions and warnings thoroughly. Even at-home formulas are not without health risks.

It is advised that with any chemical product (including any formaldehyde-free treatment) to do a patch test at least 48 hours before you apply anything near the scalp. A patch test is more about addressing any potential reaction you may have to the treatment and will tell you if you're allergic to any of the ingredients, also try applying it to your inner wrist

Keep the Treatment off your scalp and skin when applying the treatment as it may cause irritation. Gloves and a barrier cream to apply around your hairline is not get the treatment on your skin during the application.

Remember to follow the instructions Step by Step and use the recommended aftercare products to extend the life of the treatment.
