What in the world is a Brazilian Blowout and why do I need it? This is the kind of comment you hear often at Sascha’s Salon on Marco Island.
Salon owner and hair designer, Maria Elena Pujol, says it’s easier to show clients than to tell them. “It’s the perfect application for our high humidity lifestyle here in Southwest Florida,” she explains.
Who needs a Brazilian Blowout? Maria Elena says it’s designed for “everybody who has the kind of hair that doesn’t want to be tamed. That includes women and men of all ages and hair types.”
Maria Elena adds that the process works exceptionally well for older women whose hair may have become brittle, frizzy and difficult to style.
Sascha’s Salon customer Shari Fairchild is a convert.
“It’s just wonderful. I have curly, unruly hair. But, after the Brazilian Blowout, I look younger and my hair is softer and stronger, smoother. I can’t say enough good things about the treatment.”
How does it work? Here’s how it’s explained at www.instyle.com:
“The Brazilian Blowout is a liquid keratin formula that bonds to your hair to create a protective layer around each strand, effectively diminishing frizz, sealing the cuticle, and providing armor against any external damage. The smoothing treatment originated in Brazil, and uses ingredients indigenous to the country… After getting the treatment, your hair will be left hydrated, less frizzy, and more resilient to heat styling.”
“The end result,” says Maria Elena, “is hair that looks younger, more radiant.”
How long does it last? According to Maria Elena, “it lasts for up to three months, but even longer if you continue to use the accompanying Brazilian Blowout products.”
