- Fuss-Free Hair Treatment: Tropika Club thinks the Brazilian Blowout is a fuss-free hair treatment that is perfect for Singaporeans returning to their office and dealing with the humid weather.
- Brazilian Blowout: The Brazilian Blowout is a hair-straightening treatment that eliminates frizz, curls up your hair, smoothes your hair texture, and provides an exquisite shine. Its ingredients are mostly indigenous to Brazil.
- How it Works: The treatment uses a liquid keratin formula that bonds to your hair, forming a protective layer around each strand. This diminishes frizz and keeps the shape of the hair’s curl. The treatment could last from three to four months.
- Tailored to Your Needs: The Brazilian Blowout lets you tailor the treatment to what you want. You can tell your hairstylist if you want to keep some of your curls or keep your frizz. It aims to make your hair easier to work with.
What is the Brazillian Blowout?
Simple, versatile, and effective, the Brazilian Blowout is a hair-straightening treatment that’s practically the stuff of dreams: it not only eliminates frizz, curl up your hair, and smoothes your hair texture, but it can provide an exquisite shine too.
As for its namesake, you can simply point to its ingredients. Acai berries, annatto seeds, camu camu; most of them are indigenous to Brazil.
How does the Brazilian Blowout Work Its Magic?
The treatment usually uses a liquid keratin formula that bonds to your hair, forming a protective layer around each strand. That’s how it can effectively diminish frizz and keep the shape of the hair’s curl. With the protective layer, the treatments can seal the cuticle and prevent it from external damage. Meanwhile, its active ingredients are the key to keeping your hair hydrated, frizz-free, and glossy. z
That’s not all. It’ll be more resilient to heat styling too. And, so long as you avoid shampoos with chlorine and sulfates, the treatment could last from three to four months—and longer if you don’t wash your hair often.
Luscious Locks the Way You Want It
Still want some waves? The Brazillian Blowout lets you have it. You can always tell your hairstylist that you want to keep some of your curls or keep your frizz. The hair treatment actually let you tailor it to what you want.
Most of the time, the Brazilian Blowout aims to make your hair easier to work with. But take note if you have curly hair. After you get the hair treatment, you won’t get a pin-straight texture for your hair after you air dry. While you’ll still have volume and waves if you dry it, the hair treatment just helps you take less time blow drying your hair.
You don’t have to worry if you’ve dyed your hair either. You can still get a Brazilian Blowout even if you have coloured hair. In fact, it could even help you keep the colour for longer because it seals off the hair shaft. Some even follow up their hair-colouring session with a Brazilia Blowout since the hair cuticle is already open from the colour. But remember to let your stylist know because the hair treatment could make the colour brighter than usual though a skillful stylist would already know that.
Brazilian Blowouts vs. Keratin Treatments
They essentially do the same thing on your hair: vanquishing frizz and providing shine. And, both treatments are safe for most hair types and can be done on colour-treated hair.
But here’s the one defining advantage of Brazilian Blowouts over keratin hair treatments: it’s more customisable. With the myriad of keratin hair treatments out there, you’ll save yourself hours searching for the right one for your hair or the look you want. With the Brazilian Blowout, you can easily adjust the treatment to get different hair texture by simply controlling the temperature.
The Brazilian Blowout has less fuss for its post-treatment downtime too. You can still go about your regular styling routine afterwards. For keratin hair treatments, you can’t wash it for at least three or four days. Most of the time, you can’t even tie your hair up.
Brazilian Blowout Dangers
As much as it’s effective, it’s worth noting the side effects of the hair treatment as well. The actual processes in the hair treatment pose no harm—it’s that some of the ingredients could be harmful to your hair and scalp.
The ingredients for the hair treatment could include chemicals such as formaldehyde, formalin, formic aldehyde, methanol, methylene glycol, methylene oxide, oxomethane, oxymethylene, paraform, and timonacic acid.
Perhaps one of the more glaring ingredients in the hair treatment you might have heard of: formaldehyde, a cancer-causing chemical. One study that compared different Brazilian Blowout solutions discovered that the solution consisted of almost 12 per cent formaldehyde. It’s around three times higher than most other keratin hair treatments.
There could be other side effects too. Though it’s more common for experienced hairstylists to experience them. The side effects could include headaches, dizziness, bleeding nose, nausea, chest pains, scalp burning, and more. And, since experienced stylists often use heat to seal in the keratin in the hair treatment, the chemicals in the hair treatment are released into the air. That could trigger breathing problems, asthma, or wheezing.
Some have had hair problems and hair damage after this hair treatment, and other hair-straightening hair treatments involving chemicals. Bear in mind, you might experience hair loss, hair breakage, as well as dry, brittle hair. Do check with your professional hairstylist about the ingredients in your hair treatment before you do it. Usually, reliable salons with professional service can help you steer clear of the dangers.
The Brazilian Blowout is a hair treatment that is perfect for Singaporeans who want to have smooth, frizz-free hair. This treatment uses a liquid keratin formula that bonds to your hair, forming a protective layer around each strand. This layer diminishes frizz and keeps the shape of the hair’s curl. The treatment can seal the cuticle and prevent it from external damage. Its active ingredients keep your hair hydrated, frizz-free, and glossy.
One of the great things about the Brazilian Blowout is that it can be tailored to your specific needs. You can tell your hairstylist if you want to keep some of your curls or if you want to keep some of your frizz. The treatment aims to make your hair easier to work with, so if you have curly hair, you won’t get a pin-straight texture for your hair after you air dry.
The Brazilian Blowout is also more resilient to heat styling than other Keratin Treatments. If you avoid shampoos with chlorine and sulfates, the treatment could last from three to four months—and longer if you don’t wash your hair often.
In conclusion, the Brazilian Blowout is an excellent choice for Singaporeans who want to have smooth, frizz-free hair. It’s a versatile treatment that can be tailored to your specific needs, and it’s more resilient to heat styling than other Keratin Treatments. So why not give it a try and see the amazing results for yourself?

FAQ FOR WHY THE BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT IS PERFECT FOR SINGAPOREANS NOW
Q: Where can I get a Brazilian Blowout in Singapore?
A: There are many salons in Singapore that offer Brazilian Blowout treatments. Some of the top salons to get a Brazilian Blowout in Singapore include Vintage Studio Hairdressing Spa, Picasso Hair Studio, Style By Louise & Co., The Big Blow, 99 Percent Hair Studio, Blow + Bar, Full House Salon, Trimmings Salon & Spa, Venetian Hair & Makeup, and Be Salon.
Q: How long does a Brazilian Blowout last?
A: A Brazilian Blowout can last for 3-4 months if you take good care of it. You should avoid harsh shampoos that contain sulfates and chlorine as they strip the hair of natural oils and the goodness from the hair treatment. Foreign beauty websites recommend that you only wash your hair once or twice a week, but we know that it can be difficult to do this in Singapore’s humid weather. Instead, you can just shampoo your hair every 1-3 days and rinse it between washes.
Q: Is a Brazilian Blowout suitable for curly hair?
A: Yes, a Brazilian Blowout is suitable for curly hair. The treatment is sealed with a flat iron and your hair only becomes straight if the stylist goes over your hair with the straightening iron multiple times. Customers love that this is customizable and they don’t have to hide their natural hair texture to have frizz-free hair. If you do want your hair super straight, you can let the stylist know and they’ll adjust the ironing accordingly. A caveat though, if your hair is really curly, you might not be able to get it pin-straight without additional brushing and blow-drying after your shower.
Q: Is a Brazilian Blowout safe?
A: Yes, a Brazilian Blowout is safe. As everyone is moving more towards natural or at least less damaging products, many salons have been reducing the number of strong chemicals used. One such substance is formaldehyde which has been found to cause a variety of health problems when used in large amounts. With Brazilian Blowouts, formaldehyde is not used within the treatment at all. A tiny amount may however be produced when the stylist flat irons the hair but the concentration is too low to cause any effects on humans.
