Keratin Treatments vs Brazilian Blowout Treatments

Please call to assure you are scheduled for enough time when booking online.

Both keratin treatments and Brazilian blowout treatments are popular hair treatments that help to reduce frizz, add shine, and make hair more manageable. However, there are some differences between the two:

1. Formula: Keratin treatments primarily use keratin, a protein that is naturally present in hair, as the key ingredient. The treatment coats the hair with a layer of keratin, which helps to smooth out the hair shaft and reduce frizz.

Brazilian blowout treatments, on the other hand, use a formula that typically contains a blend of keratin, amino acids, and other ingredients. The main goal is to create a protective protein layer around the hair shaft, reducing frizz and improving the hair’s texture.

2. Application Process: Keratin treatments usually involve the application of the treatment solution to the hair, which is then blow-dried and flat-ironed to seal in the product. The process helps to infuse the keratin into the hair strands.

Brazilian blowout treatments also involve applying the treatment to the hair, followed by blow-drying and flat-ironing. However, the heat from the flat iron helps to bond the treatment to the hair more effectively, resulting in a smoother and more sleek appearance.

3. Results: Both treatments offer similar benefits, such as reducing frizz, improving manageability, and adding shine. However, the results may vary depending on individual hair types and the desired outcome.

Keratin treatments tend to provide a more natural look, enhancing the hair’s texture while keeping some volume. They can help relax curls and waves, making hair more manageable without completely straightening it.

Brazilian blowout treatments often deliver a straighter and sleeker result, with a focus on creating smooth, shiny, and straight hair. They are particularly effective for those with curly or frizzy hair who desire a straighter style.

It’s important to note that both treatments are temporary and gradually fade away with subsequent washes. Additionally, the specific products and techniques used by stylists may vary, so it’s best to consult with a professional to determine which treatment suits your hair type and desired outcome.
