Certified Brazilian blowout hairstylist Shirin Esfahani defuses frizz within internationally renowned hairstylist Giuseppe Franco’s two-story salon, which juxtaposes glowing chandeliers against industrial gear motifs in a roomy black-and-white setting. Shirin works the kinks out of coiffures with both the original and formaldehyde-free Zero variations of the Brazilian blowout treatment, as well as with Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy treatments. Before applying any of the three treatments, Shirin washes hair with a shampoo that removes residue and keep strands from braiding themselves in self-defense during the procedure. She then combs up to 1.5 ounces of the smoothing serum through strands, allowing it to penetrate deeply into the cuticle. The 90-minute treatment concludes with a rinse, blow-dry, and flat-iron styling, which yield soft, frizz-free results that can last 8–12 weeks. Long or particularly frizzy hair may require the use of additional product, which can be purchased for an additional fee.
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.
