I must admit, the first time I heard the term “Brazilian Blowout” I thought it was something obscene, probably because everything about those words, especially together, just sounds that way. I can barely even explain why it sounds obscene without putting an age gate on this post. This could be why it’s such a popular treatment, I suppose. Suffice to say, if it doesn’t sound at least somewhat raunchy to you, you have a cleaner mind than I, and should be commended for it.
Anyhow, once I was assured by my sister Laura that the process was wholly innocent, I let myself be her guinea pig when she needed people to experiment on – and I was happy with the results. I’ve documented (way back in JEFBOT.04) just how unruly my hair can be, especially upon waking or after getting it wet, and the biggest testament I can give to the power of the Brazilian Blowout is that my styling cap has been retired for the past 3 months.
If you’d like to give it a try and live in the Los Angeles area, my sister Laura, a licensed hair stylist, has offered to give a discount to JEFbot readers. Just email me and I’ll pass along your interest to her. Here’s a link to find out more about the process:
