8. What’s the difference between a Keratin treatment and a Brazilian blowout?
The most basic difference between these two treatments is that Keratin involves depositing the chemical treatment throughout your hair for a long period of time (three days!), while a Brazilian blowout involves a shorter application followed by a flat-iron and blowout at a high heat. With Keratin treatments you leave the salon with your hair dry but with the chemicals still on, and you must let it set for three days before shampooing. And you better hope it’s not raining or you’ll be stuck indoors for a while. Moisture is a big no-no while letting your hair set. With a Brazilian blowout the treatment is washed out of your hair and finished off with a conditioning mask before you leave the salon.
