Did you pay a generous amount or use your arms to work to get your hair strands to look put together throughout the day? Are you having a challenge maintaining your Brazilian blowout? The actual problem is not mastering the technique but using the right products to make sure the hairstyle lasts as long as possible. This does not come easily to many people. People struggle to get their Brazilian blowout to last longer than they wish to. I know your hair means much to you as it does to us. We strive to give you the best experience when it comes to your hair. We will give you some tips and tricks on maintaining your Brazilian blowout.
Use Sulfate-free Shampoos
Avoid using hair shampoos that contain harsh sulfate cleanser in their formula. Although most drugstores are formulated with sulfates to boost the leathering effect, you can also get many sulfate-free and salt-free formulas in beauty stores. Salt is used as a thickening agent in hair shampoos, but it negatively affects the beauty and longevity of your blowout treatment. Thus, for a long-lasting Brazilian blowout effect, ensure you buy a sulfate-free and salt-free shampoo and conditioner, preferably formulated with natural and organic ingredients.
Wash Three Times Weekly
Your Brazilian blowout will generally last longer when minimal hair washing is involved. Washing your hair regularly chips away the protective layer left behind by the Brazilian blowout. This undoes the smoothing effect and causes your hair to revert to its natural state. Thus, don’t wash your hair more than three times a week. This will help you prolong the effects of the treatment and keep it working like it’s supposed to. With proper care, your Brazilian blowout will last 10 – 12 weeks.
Deep conditioning your hair twice a month will keep your hair healthy-looking and silky. Apply a deep conditioning masque to freshly washed hair to infuse your strands with essential proteins that seal in the Brazilian blowout treatment. This keeps your hair shiny and smooth for longer. Look for a formula meant for Brazilian blowouts to rejuvenate your strands by adding essential amino acids and moisture to keep the dreaded frizzles away.
Timing is everything when you want to color your hair and get a Brazilian blowout. You can do hair coloring the same day you receive the straightening treatment. The blowout will seal in color and enhance the results of the coloring service. If you plan to color after receiving the Blowout, it is best to wait at least two weeks. Applying the color earlier will have you getting inconsistent results. The protective protein layer from the blowout makes your hair more color resistant. When applying a color before Brazilian Blowout, consider coloring your hair a shade darker than your desired color. This is because the color will fade a bit during the Brazilian treatment.
Protection Before/After Swimming
I’m sure you will want to enjoy a dip in the pool (chlorinated water) or hit the beach on a hot, sunny day. However, you need to play it safe and remember the hefty investment you have made in your hair. Remember that chlorinated and saltwater can affect your blowout treatment if your hair is not properly protected. Applying the Brazilian Blowout Smoothing Serum on the hair before swimming acts as a protective barrier. The serum protects you from UVA rays and helps you preserve your hair color. After swimming, rinse your hair with clean water and reapply the Brazilian Blowout smoothing serum.
Use Heat Protection
We are addicted to blow-dryers to some extent. However, spray a heat protectant formula before using your hot styling tools to keep your hair looking shiny, smooth, and healthy. Remember to apply a few sprays to dampen your freshly washed hair before blow-drying. Use small amounts; otherwise, your hair may feel greasy. Also, when choosing hair styling products with a lot of scrutiny. Be very selective during this search. Over-using styling products may get your hair heavy and oily. Each time you wash your hair, allow it to dry by air to avoid dampness.
Sleep on Silk
Silk is smooth; thus, it reduces the friction between your hair and the pillowcase. Therefore, for a pillowcase that’s 100% silk or satin to protect your hair. Replace the pillowcases on all your pillows regularly. Keep in mind that a cotton pillowcase may cause frizz or might ruin your results. However, this is not a Brazilian maintenance thing. Always sleep on silk to keep your hair well protected. Silk provides a tender resting place for your hair and minimizes split ends.
Use Brazilian Blowout Products
When washing your hair, make sure you use products specifically meant for hair that underwent a Brazilian Blowout. Mostly, your hair stylist will recommend some good products that they sell in the salon or products you can buy outside the salon. If you opt for drugstore products, you have to be very careful to get the right one. Look for anti-frizz shampoo, anti-frizz conditioner, hair serums, and conditioning hair masks.
