I am a hairstylist and have gotten two brazilian blowouts so far. I really love how it makes my hair look and feel. I love that my dry-time is decreased by half, I love not having frizz, and I love having smoother, straighter, more manageable hair.
Despite how I like getting them, I personally choose not to offer them to my clients because of the possible chemicals that I would be exposed to on a regular basis. Moderation in all things it what I say. Do I believe its harmful to get a brazilian blowout once every 3 months? No, but how doing them 8 hours a day, everyday? Possibly.. Not worth the risk to find out.
When it comes down to things like this, it always comes back to a personal decisions and weighing the risks. This post is to provide you with enough resources to make a decision if a brazilian blowout is a good option for you.
