Stylist Tiffany Vance, owner of Hedda Hair and Body Bliss in Joliet, Ill., began doing the chemical service in June.

"I've had extremely good results," Vance says. "It's good for all curl types, especially those who color their hair."

A big selling point of BKT is that it doesn't have the strong chemicals - sodium hydroxide and ammonium thioglycolate - that are in most relaxers and straighteners. These harsh chemicals can cause damage and breakage.

Instead, the active ingredient is keratin, a protein similar to a component in human hair, which naturally straightens the hair. Unlike many chemical processes, Brazilian Keratin Treatment works best on hair that's been color processed, highlighted or chemically treated.

I've been using Cocoa Keratin System and it's been excellent for my hair, very long lasting and I do it myself. It includes the pre-treatment shampoo, smoothing treatment, daily shampoo and conditioner. It contains protein and argan oil so my hair is moisturised and nourished as well as smoothed, strengthened and softened. An excellent treatment for all hair types!
I have done Brazilian Blowdry a few weeks ago. My hair looked great for a couple of weeks, but now my hair has reverted to normal. It might be wrong hairdresser or wrong product. I paid £75 and If i would decided to do it again I’d prefer to pay extra money to make sure make sure quality of the product is great and hairdresser is qualified to do the treatment. After all I’d love the treatment to last up to 3 months. HerSolution

If you are skeptical about doing the Brazilian blowout, I would HIGHLY recommend that you try it. I have tried every gel, oil, shampoo, you name it, to tame my frizz. Wisconsin gets extremely humid in the summer and it is embarrassing how bad it can get. I just got the treatment done today and I am AMAZED at how quickly I could see it work. First, you get your hair shampooed 2-3 times (my favorite part). Then the stylist adds the keratin stuff to your hair, blow drys meticulously, and straightens your hair. Then they shampoo it out, and blowdry. After the second round of shampooing, I couldn't believe how smooth my hair looked - despite being towel dried. Never in my life have I been able to just blowdry my hair and leave it. I always spend 20-35 min getting my hair ready in the mornings. Now I will be able to blow dry it (or let it air dry - another first!). Maybe the company has changed the products, but they smell wonderful. They have that acai berry stuff that makes it smell like all other fruity/flowery shampoos. My eyes watered a little bit as the stylist was adding the keratin and blow drying - but I've also experienced that when getting my hair hilighted. I couldn't be happier with how it looks!
It wears off gradually. There is no demarcation line.
is this a relaxer that has to grow out or wear off?
I have lost 50% of my hair in three weeks due to this Keratin treatment. I am using Re+5 keratin treatment,Your hair will be noticeably softer and straighter, with added life and shine as well as a lengthened look. http://www.re5keratin.com/brazilian-keratin-kit.html
WOW! I decided to try this treatment beacause summers in NC are brutal. The humidity makes my 3b hair 3x bigger. I'm lucky, I found a wonderful (and to my suprise, AFFORDABLE)stylist (Anson/Howard Jacobs Salon in Raleigh) and !Voila! straight, silky hair. I cannot stop looking at it and either can my co-workers. It's a drastic change from my big hair. Everyone loves it!
I just got it done at Shane Hair Style Color in Sherman Oaks Ca. I absolutely LOVE my hair and reccomened the service! Always check the Brazilian Blowout website to make sure that your stylist is certified-I shoped around before I decided to go with him and found that there are alot of salons around claiming to have the treatment when they are really carring a knock off. If you live in LA you should check out his studio. He is currently offering half off all services(including the Brazilian Blowout) for first time guests. 818-200-8850

Wassup??>Okay you guys.. So i am a combination of 3b,3c,and 4a. majority of my hair is 3b. I have 4a in the "kitchen"back of the neck area lol... and 3c on the sides of my head [by my temples].... It frustrates me to have to tame my hair everrryy freakin' day.. so Ive gone to the world of Weave. My hair seems to have a major history of breaking.. Ive always had long hair from toddler until about 13...like the single Aaliyah's . My hair went thru a terrible breakage point.. broke off all the way up to like a inch past my ears[devastation].No one seems to know the problem. It always gets temporarily correct then it breaks off again. My hair grew 3 inches past my shoulders at age 16. Then broke off again..Its just never been the same since my youth.And ive went through the stages off dying my hair[which broke the back of my hair off to only a half an inch long,unbelievable right?], perming my hair, pressing my hair, all types of breakage treatments. Now i'm 20. Have been 100% natural for 2 years ..no perms what so ever. I managed to get the back of my hair to grow to 3 inches long. Now my hair is 2 inches past my shoulders with bangs in front. Basically my whole reason of typing this lol... i want to get the Brazilian Keratin Treatment... what do you guys think? ive been looking at before and after results of people..reading up on it and everything..It seems to heal and nurture the hair back to health. All after pictures ive seen of people, there hair has grown significantly. Do you think this would be a good choice? I just want my longg hairrrr baccckkkkkk.. I REFUSE to ever put a perm in my hair again! Thanks Ladiesssss
WHY ARE PEOPLE SPENDING SO MUCH MONEY?! Okay, I came across this brand, ENCANTO, and it's really really good. I paid less than $60.00 for an 8 oz kit! (Good for about 3 treatments). I just did it like a week ago, and my hair is amazing. Best of all, it only took me like 2 hours. Definitely buying a bunch as x-mas gifts for my girlfriends. Oh, best of all, i swear my hair is like a mirror and reflects light. Okay, so I'm becoming a narcissist. BUT, YOU WOULD TOO AFTER BKT!

Brazilian CocoChoco Keratin Hair Therapy is growing rapidly all around the globe. Visit WWW.GOLESHLEEPROFESSIONAL.COM for more information,
I suggest that you do some research before you get this treatment applied. I have seen prices as cheap as 120 for a treatment and application - to 600 for the same thing! Also make sure you purchase a formaldehyde free keratin. I have used and recommend sunliss. It is by far the best keratin from Brazil. http://www.sunliss.com
I did the BKT treatment myself and absolutely love it!! It's the best beauty decision I've ever made. My hair is wavy, coars and frizzy - BKT kept it straight and frizz free for 2 1/2 months. It's now been 3 1/2 months & the waves are starting to come back. But, my hair is softer and less frizzy than ever before. You don't have to pay someone at a salon to do this for you - you can very easily do it yourself at home. I wrote a detailed article with pictures at Associated Content, so if you want more detailed & step-by-step info copy & paste this link to check it out: http://www.associatedcontent.com/user/508171/colleen_lindstrom.html
I just got my BKT treatment and I can't believe I took this long to do it!!!! I LOVE IT!! Unlike the Japanese that I did 2 years ago and it destroyed my hair.. I was traumatized and finally my friend convinced me to do it since I looked like a frizz ball all summer... nways I did it with this girl from sickoffrizz.com she's really nice I just wanted to put in a good word for her! GREAT JOB!! I loooove my hair! xoxo ;)
I'm actually doing it right before my birthday. It's only straight for the 1st 4 days but once you shampoo it then it has loose waves. Can't wait! =D
PS don't know if the site moderator will allow this, but I thought I'd try...I'm a stylist in Santa Monica, CA, please check out Brazilian Blowout on my site at www.jordanalorraine.com
The BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT brand is different from the others mentioned here. It does not make the hair stick-straight, but rather it kills the frizz and reduces the curl by about 75%. As a result, it is easy to manage, maintains some body, can be worn wavy, or can be blown out in just a few minutes. It is also formaldehyde-free and is FINISHED when you leave the salon; no list of rules about ponytails, clips, and not washing your hair for 3 days. I am in love with it, as a client AND a stylist!
