Q. Who is the best candidate for the Brazilian Blowout?
A. It has been our experience, that good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. We have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine/course/frizzy/curly), as well as hair that has been permed, Japanese straightened and extensions. In doing so, we have found that with proper communication and a well considered application, everyone can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.
Q. What kind of look will you get from the Brazilian Blowout?
A. The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment.
Q. Can I still receive a Brazilian Blowout if I have highlights and/or color?
A. Yes, the Brazilian Blowout will actually improve the health of color-treated/highlighted hair by conditioning the hair while sealing the cuticle for enhanced color, reduced frizz and radiant shine.
Q. Is the Brazilian Blowout going to make my hair straight?
A. If your hair is wavy, the Brazilian Blowout will make your hair appear naturally straight and healthy. If your hair is very curly, it will minimize frizz while enhancing the appearance of the natural wave/curl. If you have straight, frizzy hair, this treatment will eliminate frizz and promote radiant shine.
Q. How long does the Brazilian Blowout last?
A. The Brazilian Blowout will last for 10-12 weeks if the Açai After-Care Maintenance product line is used. The Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last.
Q. Can you apply the Brazilian Blowout directly on top of other relaxers and strengtheners?
A. Yes. The Brazilian Blowout actually works best on chemically treated hair, and helps to improve the hairs condition by fortifying each strand with essential amino acids.
The Brazilian Blowout works great directly on top of a relaxer. Perform the relaxer first, Brazilian Blowout next, and then neutralize at the very end of both treatments.
The Brazilian Blowout is great to perform when someone is trying to move away from having relaxers or Japanese straighteners. It puts movement back into the hair, allowing the hair to look its best.
Q. Will my hair lose volume if I receive the Brazilian Blowout?
A. No, your hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the Brazilian Blowout. Your hair will maintain its natural volume and you will still receive great bend and memory when blow-drying and/or using a curling iron.
Q. Can you color your hair the same day you receive a Brazilian Blowout?
A. Yes, however, you must color your hair prior to having the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment. If you get a Brazilian Blowout and wish to get a color service at a later date, you will need to wait 2 weeks.
Split End Repair Q. What is the difference between the Split End Repairing Treatment and a Brazilian Blowout Smoothing Treatment? A. The Split End Repairing Treatment is a 10 minute service that is only performed on the ends of the hair to instantly repair, mend and seal broken and split ends for up to 4 weeks. The Brazilian Blowout Smoothing Treatment is a 90 minute service that smooths, eliminates frizz and improves the health of the hair from roots to tips for up to 12 weeks.
Q. What is the Thermo-Marine Bonding System™?
A. The Thermo-Marine Bonding System™ is a heat-activated, protein-enriched technology that instantly gathers and binds together broken and split ends while the Brazilian Blowout Super Nutrient Complex™ smooths the cuticle. The end result is stronger, healthier ends defended against damage caused by heat styling, hot tools and environmental stress.
Q. How does this service differ from at-home repair treatments?

Generally, at-home treatments provide a temporary conditioning and protective effect from wash to wash whereas the Brazilian Blowout Split End Repairing Treatment instantly repairs broken damaged ends, providing 4 weeks of healthier ends protected against further breakage caused by everyday styling and environmental stressors./p>
Q. Can the Split End Repairing Treatment be performed on color-treated or highlighted hair?

Q. Can I receive a Brazilian Blowout Smoothing Treatment and the Split End RepairingTreatment on the same day?
A. Yes. In fact, the Brazilian Blowout Split End Repairing Treatment is ideal for clients with fragile and/or broken ends which will benefit from the reparative benefits of Thermo-Marine Bonding System. What's more, the Split End Repairing Treatment is excellent for maintaining strong healthy ends between smoothing treatments.
Q. How often can you receive the Split End Repairing Treatment?
A. You can receive the treatment as often as every 4 weeks. The treatment is formulated to improve the integrity of the hair so the condition of the ends will continue to improve with each treatment.

A. Healthier, stronger ends with less breakage and a noticeably improved texture.
Q. Who is the best candidate for this treatment?
A. Anyone who wants to improve the condition and integrity of their hair will benefit from this treatment, especially if you have fragile, over-processed ends. It's also recommended if you are looking to grow your hair longer as it helps maintain healthy ends without sacrificing length.
Q. Is there a waiting period with this treatment?
A. No! The minute you leave the salon, you may wash the hair, exercise, even put the hair up in a bun or a clip immediately after receiving the service without worry.
Q. Can I get this treatment in place of a haircut?
A. In order to maintain optimum hair health, you should schedule haircuts with your stylist on a regular basis. A haircut by a licensed stylist is your first line of defense against split ends and breakage as it helps prevent damage from progressing. In fact, receiving the Split End Repair Treatment after a precision cut or even a trim will not only help maintain the shape of your cut between appointments but help in preventing ends from splitting.
Q. Does the product release formaldehyde?
A. No. This product does not release formaldehyde before, during or after the treatment.
