brazilian blowout on african american hair

So does the brazilian blowout on african american hair work well or is it a myth? Well the quick answer is yes but you should really consider if it’s for you.

There are some Pros and Cons to go over so this is kind of like a review sort of speak. If you go through the process know that you will definitely get bone straight hair. If that is what you want then believe me it will happen.

However, you need to understand that hair this straight is NOT a real good thing especially at the risk you undertake by opting in for this style. This is NOT a Brazilian Keratin treatment.

Brazilian Blowout is not Formaldehyde free; it contains Glutaraldehyde which is a colorless liquid with a pungent odor used to disinfect medical and dental equipment. It is also used for industrial water treatment and as a chemical preservative.

However, it is toxic, causing severe eye, nose, throat and lung irritation, along with headaches, drowsiness and dizziness. It is a main source of occupational asthma among health care providers.

Glutaraldehyde is an oily liquid at room temperature (density 1.06 g/mL), and miscible with water, alcohol, and benzene. It is used as a tissue fixative in electron microscopy. It is employed as an embalming fluid, is a component of leather tanning solutions, and occurs as an intermediate in the production of certain industrial chemicals.

Now that you have the information you need you can make an intelligent decision on whether you want to proceed with a stylist or salon that administers this hairstyling.

  • My hair is 100% natural never ever been relaxed only blown out with a hairdryer, im planning on getting the Brazilian blowout but first would like to know if after I get the Brazilian blowout and say I have it for two weeks and think its time to wash my hair with a sulphate free shampoo will it make my hair no longer straight like how it was when it was first done ? as in do I have to re-straighten it? and if so then why does everywhere keep telling me it can last up to 12 weeks if you cant get your hair wet?

  • With the Brazilian Blow out you can shampoo your hair the same day if you want to. And everyone’s hair is different, but it much more manageable. It dries faster and styles easier.
