What happens if you don’t rinse out Brazilian Blowout?
What happens if you don’t rinse out Brazilian Blowout? If you don’t rinse out Brazilian Blowout, your hair will continue to take up the treatment’s protein.
For best results, the manufacturer recommends rinsing your hair after the process to remove any excess.
Today I had one of my clients, her name is Karina. She came in for a reparative hair treatment, which helps to reduce hair frizz and look healthier.
Karina is a high-performing athlete.Do you know what that means?
It means she trains hard every day and competes to achieve the highest level.
She participates in national, international and even Pan American games.
Why was it a problem to apply the keratin treatment?
Karina washes her hair every day after training, and she always wears her hair tied up
However, keratin treatments need to be followed in certain guidelines. For example, you’re not supposed to wash your hair for at least three days after the treatment. Also, don’t tie your hair up or else it might leave marks
There are other options for Karina if she wants to keep her curly hair. For example, she may consider a Brazilian blowout.
Yes, the Brazilian Blowout.
I didn’t recommend Brazilian Blowout because it’s one of the most expensive treatments in the salon. This has not changed my opinion on it.
So, the downside is that you can’t wash your hair for a while. But you’d trade that inconvenience with not having to worry about washing it and tying it back for awhile.
I explain the process & aftercare before preparing everything to apply the Brazilian Blowout.
Here’s what happened over the course of the session: we started with a Brazilian Blowout; I was almost close to finishing it when Karina asked me a question
WHAT COULD HAPPEN TO MY HAIR IF I DON’T RINSE OUT THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT AS RECOMMENDED BY THE MANUFACTURER?
The question surprised me.
Why on earth would someone willfully ignore the manufacturer’s directions?
It is important to give clear instructions for any product. The reason why the instructions are accurate is because of all the research they did on the product before releasing it.
Karina advised me to keep the Brazilian Blowout in for longer, as she believed that the protein in it would help to tame her frizzy hair.
I’ll be honest with you.
As a professional, I always use the products as instructed by the manufacturer. So here’s what I did with Karina:
Step 1: I washed her hair and gently dried it with a towel.
Step 2: I applied the Brazilian Blowout to each section and then removed the excess product with a fine comb.
Step 3: I let the product sit in her hair for 45 minutes
Step 4: I blew-dried her hair.
Step 6: I rinsed her hair with warm water and asked the salon to keep her until it was dry.
WHY DID I ASK HER TO STAY IN THE SALON UNTIL HER HAIR AIR DRIED?
I wanted to show her that even though I had rinsed out the product after applying it, there would be no frizz residue.
That’s what happened. Karina was extremely happy, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Follow their instructions to be safe
Now, what would have happened if Karina had not rinsed out the Brazilian Blowout?
There probably wouldn’t have been much difference
By the time you reach steps 4 and 5, the majority of the Brazilian Blowout process is complete.
You can mold your hair into whatever shape or style you want by following this simple step.
Once you have completed all five steps of a Brazilian Blowout treatment, your frizzy hair will be completely repaired and eliminated.
So, what is step six, rinsing out, for?
One way to maintain control over the effectiveness of treatments is to wet the hair and let it air dry after application, this will reduce frizziness and damage.
It takes approximately 20-25 days for the Brazilian Blowout treatment to be fully absorbed by the hair
This means that if you do not rinse your hair after a Brazilian Blowout, the product may stay in your hair for a longer period of time.
Now, do you want a tip?
Brazilian Blowout is a professional-level treatment. It is not FDA approved and can’t be used at home.
This is why you can find different types of keratin treatments online. Some of them are washed out and others stay in the hair, but they work just the same.
If you’re going to pay for a Brazilian Blowout, be sure that the stylist performs the treatment as recommended by the manufacturer.
Now, after-care is also important. That’s what I’ll talk about next.
