You’ve made the plunge, chosen the right salon, and now you’re looking fresh dressed like a million bucks! So, what now? NOW you take care of your investment. Welcome to the aftercare phase, Brazilian Blowout Beauties! Here’s what you need to know to maintain the smoothing treatment beyond the salon.

Brazilian Blowout Longevity

Twelve weeks; That’s how long a Brazilian Blowout is marketed to last. According to, a Brazilian Blowout lasts longest when Brazilian Blowout Acai aftercare products are applied. The longevity of a Brazilian Blowout slightly increases as clients continue to receive application services.
The treatment may last less than 12 weeks due to various reasons such as salon customization of treatment application, haircare regimen, or aftercare products used. Don’t fret. We have a few tips to help you develop an aftercare regimen that’ll help preserve a blowout regardless of if you’re a naturally curly or straight Brazilian Blowout Beauty.

How Preserve a Brazilian Blowout

To best preserve your Brazilian Blowout, we recommend the following:

  • Minimal hair washing: As the babies say, “save the fishes.” Only wash your hair 2-3 times a week.
  • Condition after every wash: Conditioner helps to smooth the hair and increase manageability.
  • Apply a smoothing serum: Applying a smoothing serum seals the cuticle, locks in moisture, protects hair from thermal heat, and helps the hair to remain tangle free.
  • Skip the flat iron: This is more of a personal favorite of ours. There’s no need to flat iron your hair every day. Many clients achieve a straightened hair look without the use of a blow dryer or flat iron, thanks to keratin bonding to and protecting the cuticle.

Product wise, preservation of a Brazilian Blowout is best achieved using Brazilian Blowout aftercare products, including ACAI Anti-Frizz Shampoo, ACAI Anti-Frizz Conditioner, Ionic Bonding Spray, ACAI Daily Smoothing Serum, and the ACAI Deep Conditioning Masque. These products have a similar composition to the Brazilian Blowout professional solution products used in the salon. Apply the Ionic Bonding Spray and ACAI Daily Smoothing Serum after every wash and before applying heat. If you decide to use alternative products, select shampoo and conditioner without sulfates or sodium chloride. Additionally, select alternative products that contain ingredients native to Brazil, including camu camu, annatto seed, and acai berry.

Alright, Brazilian Blowout Beauties. Let’s talk non-cleansing and conditioning products and practices, including:

  • Shower caps: Shower caps protect your hair from water, helping you to achieve minimal washing throughout the week.
  • Silk pillowcases: Silk pillowcases prevent snagging and frizz with a smooth surface. Cotton pillowcases can cause friction, which causes frizz.
  • Wrapping your hair: Wrapping your hair before bed using silk or satin bonnets is the best way to minimize hair tangling and time spent in the mirror at 7:45 a.m. when you’re due to work at 8:00 a.m. (We see you.) You can style your hair the night before, wrap it in a circular motion, pin it in place, and secure your masterpiece with a silk or satin bonnet. All that’s left to do in the morning is unpin your hair, comb and/or brush your hair out, and VOILA – a fresh hairstyle with no additional heat or further styling.

Where to Purchase Brazilian Blowout Aftercare Products

ACAI Brazilian Blowout products can be purchased from Alternative cleansing, conditioning, and other aftercare products can be purchased at your local general stores. Once you begin to see your natural hair pattern return around your hairline, we recommend setting an appointment. As time continues, the remainder of your hair will begin to revert to its natural state. Unlike other smoothing or straightening treatments, there will be no presence of a demarcation line as keratin does not break the bonds of the hair shaft.
