B&TD Review | The Brazilian Blowout


Day 1 Brazilian Blowout

Guess what? I FINALLY did it. I got the Brazilian Blowout!!! 

After seeing so many of my co-workers get this treatment - and loving it - I just HAD to try it for myself! So I researched some salons in the Bay Area and decided to take the plunge at La Diva Hair Salon.  They were close to home and had a super awesome informational website, plus they managed to squeeze me in for an appointment on my birthday. YAY! 

This treatment has changed my life. I didn't realize how long I was spending on my hair each morning! Instead of 20 minutes just to defrizz my mane, its been 10 mins for drying AND styling! How cool is that?!  At this rate, I'm seriously considering sending all my hair styling products to family and friends because I have yet to really use any of it. Just a drop of shine serum and thats it. Really, that's it. With the Brazilian Blowout my hair is super shiny and frizz-free. I literally flatiron my ends and I'm off - to live my life.  Just the way its supposed to be, right?


So its been a little over 6 weeks and its still pretty straight.  I lightly flatiron ends and any waves that appear ... and my hair finally held a curl about 3 weeks ago!  One thing to note is that I've been using the Brazilian Blowout Shampoo & Conditioner (every 2 days) and the Masque (once a week), so I believe that's helped the treatment last a lot longer.  The only downside is that the products have caused a little dandruff, but it's a small price to pay for beautiful hair - I'm totally in LOVE with my locks and loving the treatment so far! Well worth the cool $175 I spent at La Diva. Thank you hair gods! 

Stay tuned for my 12 Week Update!

UPDATE 6/13/2011:  Its been almost 4 months since my treatment and I have about 40% of my frizz back.  Not too bad, but not too good either. I will most likely get another treatment soon, I'm just trying to time it perfectly with my Vegas trip in the fall as I like to curl my hair and I've found that it curls well after 6 weeks. Anyway, thats the scoop - stay tuned!
