What Is A Brazilian Blowout?

Brazilian blowout is a semi-permanent protein treatment that helps reduce frizz and makes the hair smooth and shiny. This hair treatment originated in Brazil and uses liquid keratin formula that contains acai berry, camucamu, and annatto seeds. The formula coats the hair with a protective protein layer to reduce external damage and closes the open hair cuticles to reduce frizz. The best part is, Brazilian blowout is suitable for all hair types – fine, thick, fragile, damaged, dry, and color-treated hair.

Many prefer getting a Brazilian blowout from the salon. However, with the right instructions, you can get it done easily at home! Check out the tutorial below.
