Brazilian Blowout is the latest trend in professional hair care that has created so much buzz in the United States. Infused with amino acids, the hair smoothing treatment promises to give you smooth, frizz-free, healthier and shinier hair in 90 minutes with results lasting up to 12 weeks with no downtime.
This revolutionary approach to hair treatment is used by stars like Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, and Reese Witherspoon and has been featured in mainstream beauty and fashion magazines in the US.
Very recently, Brazilian Blowout was launched at Envy Me Salon and Hairs and Nails Salon (the first salons in the Philippines to offer the service) and I was invited to be among the first few to try out the hair treatment.
I had a trim at Tony and Jackey salon a few days after I had my hair relaxing treatment. A trim wasn’t really necessary but I was looking for an excuse to try the salon’s services.
Well, anyway…I liked the salon’s black-and-white interiors. The facilities are modern — I saw a couple of setting perm and digital perm machines. There’s also a very modern shampoo station complete with chairs with auto-recline mechanism so that clients are comfortable while being shampooed.
Two weeks ago, I finally had my hair chemically treated after enduring the coarse waves and frizz for more than 6 months. I planned to rest my hair and scalp from all chemical treatments for a few months more but I just couldn’t stand the bad hair days any longer.
With a very limited budget, I headed off to Charmlian Hair Experts Salon and Spa where my favorite hairstylist works. After inquiring about the rates, I asked Jun-Jun,the stylist I’ve been salon-stalking for more than 10 years, if a relaxing treatment suits my hair type and texture. After doing the finger strand test, he said it’s okay and started the hair relaxing process.
