$99 for a Brazilian Blowout (Up to $450 Value)
An anti-residue shampoo kicks off the 90-minute salon session, then the hands of a certified stylist work the Brazilian Blowout formula through your hair, making sure each strand gets the proper treatment. Following a blow-dry and some flatiron work, the stylist applies a conditioning mask and a smoothing serum to nourish the hair and seal in the Brazilian Blowout formula. A final blow-dry leaves your hair with a smooth, healthy, and frizz-free look that can last up to 12 weeks.
Some hair-straightening products that claim to be formaldehyde-free include aldehyde compounds, which are similar to the carcinogen formaldehyde. Side effects may include nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among others. Learn more about the health risks here.
