I'm contemplating getting a Brazilian Blowout. Before getting engaged, I kept my hair pretty short. In fact, I think the last time I had hair that was long enough to even hit my collar bone was 2006. When we got engaged I was already overdue for a haircut and decided to just let it grow out since I have known since day one that I want an updo. Just about a year later, this is how long my hair is now.
It's long, thick, dry, frizzy and hard to manage. I've read about the miracles of the Brazilian Blowout and it is so, so tempting. Luscious smooth and frizz-free hair without having to use products or blow dry? Sign me up! It only lasts up to 12 weeks so if I get it done now it will be pretty much worn out by the time our wedding rolls around. So, it will get me through these next 110(!) days, I can get my updo, and then get my Post-Wedding Chop when we get back from our honeymoon.
My local salons charge around $300 for a Brazilian Blowout, so I'm having trouble pushing myself to make the appointment. I keep thinking maybe I should try a home deep conditioning treatment or invest in some good anti-frizz products first.
What do you think? Just say pocketbook be damned and go for the blowout, or try something cheaper first? Any recommendations for at home products? Anyone out there had a Brazilian Blowout and have any words of wisdom for me?
