Hey everyone! Welcome back to my blog, thanks for stopping by! Today’s post I wanted to talk about why I love getting a Brazilian Blowout done on my hair, and share some pictures with you as well!
First off, let’s start with a photo of what my hair looks like naturally.
You can see from this photo, it lays a little straight at the top, but there is a huge ridge in my hair and it’s quite puffy. I don’t think this photo does the puffiness justice, but trust me, it can get pretty wild looking with just bring natural.
My hair is quite thick, and it takes about an hour to straighten it, if I really have the time to set down and section everything out. It’s not as long as it used to be, but no matter what length of hair you have, it always takes longer to do stuff with it it when it’s thick.
So what a Brazilian Blowout actually does for me is, it tames and relaxes it so much! It helps with the drying time, and makes it significantly straighter without having to use a straightener constantly when I want to style it. After I wash it I’ll still wrap my hair up in a towel to help dry it that way, but when I take it out of the towel, instead of seeing curls, it’s just straight! (Now if my curls would dry nicely, then I’d be okay with it, but unfortunately for me, I’m not that lucky!) I’ll then just blow dry it with a round brush and it looks like this!
So you can tell that it’s definitely straight, yay!! You can see though the ends are flipped out a bit, and there is still a little body to it. If I wash my hair at night, I’ll usually sleep on it like this, and then when I wake up in the morning, I will run a straightener through to touch it up a bit, and that only takes maybe 15-20 minutes!! It’s a game changer!!!
Now let’s get down to the real talk for a second, as much as I love the blowouts, I don’t get them too often because they are pricey! I’ll be straight up honest with you, it will cost you around $300 to get this done. I don’t say that to be like hey look at me and what I bought, but I just wanted to be honest with you so you aren’t shocked when you look up the price. Some salons are different, and may offer different pricing but that’s how much it was for me. However a blowout is going to last you about 3 months if you wash it frequently, maybe 3 times a week, but I can get much longer out of my hair, so i’ll usually wash it 1 to 2 times a week depending on what I’ve been doing. It will last and still look (and smell) nice for me, plus I don’t get extremely greasy so I don’t have to worry about that really. So my blowout will last me well into the summer and start of fall for sure.
You also get product with your blowout to use at home to help with the upkeep of it, which is SO nice and handy! It looks like this:
So that is the shampoo, conditioner and a spray you put it before you dry and style it. It really helps keep the treatment locked in your hair. This is the first time I’ve gotten the spray so I’m not too familiar with it, but I can tell you they all smell SO good, very tropical!
Now you can buy these at the salon where you got your blowout at, but it is cheaper on Amazon to restock. I hate to say buy online instead, but if you want to save a buck or two, you can find them here!
