Before modern hair treatments, frizzy hair could only be smoothed by pressing it with an iron or by running it through the fingers of a jazz pianist. Achieve a noteworthy 'do with today's Groupon: for $140, you get an all-natural Brazilian hair-smoothing treatment at Hair on 5th Avenue in Scottsdale (a $350 value).
The stylists at Hair on 5th Avenue straighten and smooth hair using organic Pure Brazilian products derived completely from plants. To begin the 90-minute smoothing treatment, technicians lather locks with an anti-residue shampoo that cleanses away buildup and opens pores to prepare follicles for the main event. Next, they slather on the Brazilian thermal reconstruction solution, infusing hair with substances only found growing in the Amazon rainforest, such as exotic plant extracts and a laid-back attitude. After a blow dryer and hair straightener lock in shine like an iron fixes Gremlins fan art to an old T-shirt, fingers massage in a deep-conditioning mask to equilibrate hair’s pH and prolong the treatment’s effects.
