Want to make this treatment last throughout the duration of 12-16 weeks?
Well, there are specific habits that you can practice for that.
Give your hair time to blend with the keratin
Especially during the first three days after the treatment. And for that, you must avoid at all costs
getting your hair wet. No washing, no sweating, no swimming.
And don’t forget your umbrella: rain is also forbidden.
Few days after receiving a Brazilian blowout, your hair’s keratin is still malleable. Because of it, you
must avoid putting your hair up, doing hairstyles like braids and ponytails or
even style it with a curling iron.
Styling your hair after your Brazilian blowout
If your hair care routineused to include several hairsprays, leave-ins, oils and mousses, forget that:
you don’t need so many products to maintain a Brazilian Blowout.
The overuse of these products can make your hair look greasy and dirty.
Plus, blow dryers are your new best friends: blow drying your hair helps maintain the super straight and
silky look. Use the low heat mode, that is less aggressive to ensure you don’t open
the cuticle of your hair strand causing the product to wear off quicker.
Mild cleanse shampoos are the best to make a Brazilian blowout last longer. Choose moisturizing and sulfate-free, paraben-free formulas. Besides keeping the treatment for longer, they also help hydrate and nourish your strands. There is a range of keratin aftercare shampoos, which is even better.
Conditioning is a must
All hair types need conditioning. After getting a blowout, that doesn’t change. Wear deep
conditioners and hair masks weekly, biweekly, or monthly (according to your needs).
This also helps your hair to feel soft and look shiny.
Washing the hair less often helps maintain the look longer, since the treatments get washed out
gradually. That’s why gentle cleansing shampoos are the best options:
sulfates and parabens reduce the longevity of the treatment.
Just like that, there are also other factors that can affect your blowout longevity, such as UV
lightning, salty water, and high levels of chlorine. So, be careful when going to the beach or swimming pool.
Following these tips, you guarantee a good longevity of your Brazilian blowout
and keep your hair looking gorgeous for longer!
