The Brazilian Blow Dry

Last week when I was having a hair treatment done at my hairdresser, she asked me if I had ever considered having a Brazilian Blow dry done to my hair. I was completely confused as I had never heard of it before.
Basically the Brazilian Blow dry doesn't completely straighten the hair; you hair will still have volume and body and can still be worn curly or wavy. It simply softens whatever wave or curl you have already.
So, if you blow dry your hair, it will still have wave or curl but absolutely no frizz! But don't worry, you can still straighten your hair, and the best part is that it'll take about a fraction of the time do do so!
Something else my hairdresser told me is that there is no obvious 'line of demarcation' - which means that when your hair grows out there is no obvious difference between the treated hair and the new growth.
I am going for this treatment sometime in the next week or so, so I'll do some before and after photos.
I have very very frizzy hair and cant leave the house without having used my GHD, so fingers crossed the Brazilian blow dry works :)
Nicole Ritchie is a big believer too - check out her blog post here.



  1. There was an article about how the FDA did not approve the brazilian blow dry..and it's dangers on

    I never heard of it until I read that article :-) GOod luck!

  2. I had a look at the article, and the main reason behind the dangers of this treatement is Formaldehyde which can cause asthma, headaches etc. SO ladies it is very important to check with the salon to ensure their product is Formaldehyde free :)
    Thanks Ms. E for the info :) xx

  3. Definitely, what a great website and enlightening posts, I surely will bookmark your website.All the Best!
