As a consumer, you are always stuck with which brand or service to go with? Coke or Pepsi? Nike or Adidas? Or how about Keratin or Brazilian?
Keratin Treatment and Brazilian Blowout is a temporary hair smoothing treatment that helps reduce hair frizz, decreases blowout time, and enhances hair shine. Both are very similar but yet so different at the same time!
Keratin Treatment and Brazilian Blowout have the same application style. Both would start off by using a clarifying shampoo, rough drying hair until 70% of moisture is out, apply solution, blow drying thoroughly and seal it off with the flat iron to lock and seal.
Keratin Treatment will give you a greater amount of smoothing and a deep conditioning shine result. The Keratin chemicals are less harsh which is safer to use on your scalp and hair. The ‘Trissola' brand is a formaldehyde free application treatment for Keratin. This treatment allows you to wash and style the same day without any restrictions! The Keratin can last up to 4-6 months and hair texture remains healthy/shinny. Make sure your stylist is using Trissola for your Keratin! ! !
The downside of a Brazilian Blowout, has high amounts of formaldehyde and other harsh chemicals when heated. The formaldehyde gas is released into the air causing skin irritations, burning eyes and throat, asthma attacks and nose bleeds which can be extremely harmful for you and your stylist. As for the quality of your hair, the Brazilian Blowout is similar to the Japanese straightening treatment! Both leave your hair feeling amazing after the first month but once the product starts to rinse out, the quality of the hair is limp and brittle because of the harsh amounts of formaldehyde.
The internet will tell you otherwise, but my experience as a professional, the Keratin Treatment gives you or your client an overall phenomenal product for the quality of your hair whilst still giving the “Brazilian Blowout” look and feel. A Keratin Treatment ranges roughly from $350-$700. All depending on the length and quantity of the hair.
If you're looking for a smoothing hair treatment, I would go with the Keratin!!! Its definitely worth the investment!
