I always have people asking me if the Brazilian Blowout Products are really THAT important. The truth is, they are important. Let me give you a little rundown on them.
The products: (these descriptions are taken right off the BB website)
The Acai Shampoo Anti- Frizz Shampoo-
“An exclusive, sulfate-free cleansing system extends the life of the Brazilian Blowout by maintaining the vital moisture and protein balance needed for optimal smoothness and radiant, frizz-free hair.”
The Acai Anti-Frizz Conditioner-
“A specially formulated conditioner extends the life of the Brazilian Blowout by infusing the hair with vital moisture and essential nutrients while coating the hair
with smoothing proteins that fortify and seal the cuticle. Locks in moisture, locks
out humidity, protects hair color and promotes smooth, radiant, frizz-free hair.”
The Acai Smoothing Serum-
“This unique smoothing formula extends the life of the Brazilian Blowout as it detangles, conditions and seals the cuticle to lock-in moisture and lock- out humidity. The end result is smooth, frizz-free hair with radiant shine..”
Acai Deep Conditioning Masque-
“A creamy, rich, intense conditioning masque drenches the hair once a week by coating each hair strand with exclusive, nutritive proteins to eliminate frizz, promote shine, and guarantee the longest-lasting smoothing result.”
The serum also acts as a barrier against other products. So if you put it in your hair before you put your styling products in, it will help protect your BB.
If you spent a lot of time in the ocean or in the pool it is a good idea to wet your hair first and then apply the serum to your hair before you jump in the pool or ocean. Salt is death to your blowout and so be sure to protect your blowout with the serum. It is also recommended to have your hair protected before you sweat a lot too.
If you can’t afford purchase all of the products I suggest that you get any sulfate free shampoo (my favorite is Rockaholic by Tigi) and the smoothing serum. It is the most economical way to preserve your blowout.
