Curly hair can be a curse and nuisance to women who desperately want straight locks. Save the time and frustration of de-frizzing and burning yourself with hot irons. To accomplish effortlessly straight hair, one may need assistance. These five-star beauty salons have perfected the act of pin-straight hair, using a blowout technique – the Brazilian Blowout. While the treatment is fairly pricey, results are undeniable and long lasting. At-home products just don’t compare and result in wasted money without accomplishing straight locks. A Brazilian Blowout uses pure amino acid, a type of keratin treatment, and is exceptionally nourishing and refreshing for hair.
