If the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, then disheveled hair provides the least efficient route for climbing monkeys to reach the bananas in your fruit hat. Today's Groupon tames tresses for easy scaling: for $99, you get a Brazilian blowout at Element Salon in Orem (up to $250 value). This Groupon is valid for stylists Julie or Heidi.
At Element Salon, expert stylists Julie and Heidi imbue frizzy or damaged locks with smooth, sleek shine using the protein-packed Brazilian blowout treatment. Before kicking off the 1.5- to 2-hour session, the stylists rinse away dirt and oil, remove stowaway gum from behind ears, and divide hair into even sections. The strand tamers then coat locks from root to tip in the amino-acid glaze, allowing it to settle into the cuticle and seal in shine while blocking frizz. Reconstructed strands fall into place with the help of a blow dryer and flatiron before returning to the shampoo basin to repeat the process one more time. Following the blowout, tresses swish and sway in their newfound sleek form for up to 12 weeks or seven minutes on Mercury. Curious clients can peruse a helpful FAQ page to learn more about the treatment.
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.
