What is a Brazilian Blowout?
The Brazilian Blowout is a smoothening treatment to make your hair look shinier, sleeker, and smoother. It is a hair treatment composed of a liquid keratin formula. Keratin is a protein found in your skin, hair, and fingernails. It is what helps keep them strong, healthy, and is essential for growth. The Brazilian Blowout works by creating a protective layer around each hair strand, giving it that shiny, smooth finish.

It is typically recommended for people with chemically processed, frizzy, and damaged hair. The Brazilian Blowout treatment can be performed on all hair types from fine to coarse hair. It is also safe for use on color-treated hair.
