Summer is officially here ladies, and it ain’t messing around. Scorching heat (that we only appreciate on the beach or on a junk), rooftop BBQs, camping, it all sounds so idylic doesn’t it? Unfortunately nothing in the world is perfect, not even in Hong Kong, and we all have one common enemy: humidity. Not only does it make us feel gross from the most simple tasks like walking to 7/11, but it reeks havoc on our hair.
On BloomMe Talk we have already tackled this nasty nemesis with our Humidity Fighting Hacks, but for those that want a slightly more permenant fix for frizzy hair, we are here to introduce you to Brazilian Blowouts, a hair treatment that will blow your mind.
So, what is a Brazilian Blowout?
A Brazilian Blowout is a smoothing treatment for your hair that protects it with a layer of protein that stops the hunidity from being able to get inside the cuticle. So no matter how curly, frizzy or Einstien-like your locks become in the Hong Kong summers, you can count on your blowout to survive for at least 12 weeks.
Unlike other hair smoothing treatments, the BB only take around 90mins and requires no upkeep from your end, so you can go straight from the salon to socilaising. Don’t worry if you’re not a fan of the pin straght J-Anniston look, with these types of blowouts, you’re able to customise how straight of wavy you’d like your hair to be.
But, how does it work?
The gaps in the hair scructure cause it to bend and coil, creating curls and frizz. What these gaps also do is suck up all the excess moisture from the air, and you don’t need me too tell you that there is A LOT of excess moisture in Hong Kong’s air! The keratin formula in our beloved brazilian fills in these gaps with a coat of protein making our locks shiny, smooth and sleek- whatever the weather!
Where can I get one in Hong Kong?
