    its been done in my country for months now, my stylist always suggests it to me as i have very fine hair that tends to frizz but i d rather wait till summertime when i spend my days at the beach and i need for it to dry fast at night

    i think it s great to finally be able to have nice hair without spending half hour blowdrying it

    hi! i was looking at new discussions and i read this...
    i've done the brazilian in december and i'm totally crazy about!
    i had wavy dry hair and now they are soft and shine!
    they told me that treatment noutrishes hair but it's not a straightening....
    anyway, i asked to a friend of mine that done it before. she had very unruly hair and now she's perfect.
    i have to do the second treatment after 45 days, then after 3 months, then after 6 and then 1 time x year.
    i was sceptic but i don't know why i didn't do it before :smile:

    I found out about this on Nicole Richie's blog. My salon does it and I am considering saving up to get this done. I live in Florida and the humidity can be unbearable at times and my poor hair turns into a frizz ball, regardless of the amount of anti frizz/smothing product is in it. Even when I go to the gym my hair frizzes, it is so annoying.

    candycandy - did it take long to do? are there any chemicals in it that are bad for you?

    Here is a before and after I found on brazilianblowdry.com

    I have done it to my hair a couple of times when I was living in the Virginia area a couple years ago... I used to get it done by one Dominican stylist in D.C.

    I love it. No one does it here where I live now :(

    i think this could help you iloveCouture :smile:
    i mean, your hair won't become like the picture every time you wash them up!
    but it will be so easy to brush them and keep the look.
    consider that before doing it it took me 30 minutes to brush my hair into smooth and they were never good!
    now 5 minutes passing my hand through the hair when i use the hairdryier :wink:
    i was told that this product is made with keratin and sugar cane and it's not chemical.
    like every hair colouring you have to avoid to do if you're pregnant.
    it took me about 2 hours and i had not to wash the hair for 3 days if i remember right.
    i paid about $280 products included ( then you have to use only this kind of shampoo, cream and serum ).
    i hope it helps!

    i did it back in october last year, it was right before my honeymoon so i was thinking i dont wanna waste my time worrying about how frizzy my hair's gonna get everytime i shower n spend a lot of time drying it and styling and applying a butt load of products that i know are only gonna end up making my hair look dirty right after washing it.
    im so glad that i did it, my hair dresser only used a blow dryer and no straightening iron because i told her i hate the sticky straight look and i would love to see my natural hair texture sans the frizz, but she said that the goal is not to straighten, just treat!
    oh my, i know i sound like a commercial, a bad one too but this is the first time in my life that i feel confident about my hair! i hiiiighly recommend it! my hair is wavy and never curly nor straight, so this just gave the waves more health and sheen and body

    I've been doing it for the past 2 years with Suzy at the Argyle in LA (first place in US to do it). I adore it but wish I could find it for less than $350. I hear Fantastic Sams does is but I'm completely afraid of that place.

    Would love any recommendations in the los angeles area if you know of anything cheaper.
