Brazilian Blowout
updated: Jun 16, 2014, 10:18 AM

Can anyone recommend a good salon to get a Brazilian blowout? I usually go to a place in San Clemente but I'm looking for someone good in town. I'm not looking for Keratin or smoothing treatments, only Brazilian.

Thanks!

For us neanderthals, what's a Brazilian blowout?

I want to ask what a Brazilian blowout is, but the truth is that I'm... afraid...to... know (very afraid! ;-).

@442P, they put a chemical treatment on your hair that straitens it, so you supposedly don't have to blow dry your hair. Have heard good and bad reviews on it. Can frye your hair, and then you have to cut it to make it look good

Legends is a great salon overall. Did not like Patine, felt like a hair factory.

I agree 528464. I switched to Legends 6 months ago after being with the same stylist for over 20 years. Best move ever.

Do some research - Brazilian Blowout is very carcinogenic. The State of California sued the company over it.

I get mine with Ariel at Cheri Bebe. She does a great job and is really sweet. I do not smell anything and it does not seem toxic in any way. I've read those scary reports, as well. But, having your nails done or hair dyed seems waaay more toxic than this stuff. And the results, for me anyway, are incredible..

Brazilian Blowouts contain formaldehyde and derivatives of formaldehyde at 8.7-10.4 %. It is a carcinigen and falls within the prop. 65 warning. Personally, I skip the toxins and deal with my hair with other non-toxic products.

The world cup is supposed to be a Brazilian Blowout. When will I ever get to use that straight line again?

The formal(dehyde) term for it is Brazilian Severe Gastric Disturbance.

I don't know if Brazilian is available - but Joel (pronounced Jo-el as he is French) at Belle du Jour in Montecito is the BEST for haircut and blow dry. 845.7000.

I must admit that I thought it was about taking the Brazillian Bikini Waxing to a whole new level!

Cheri BiBi is amazing, been going there for years, but soooo overpriced! I can no longer afford to have my hair done there anymore. Too bad. Maybe I will try Legends... ?

My mother died from a glioma brain tumor in her 70's with no family history of any cancers. My sister-in-law thinks the chemical exposure,multiple times a year, from perms seemed the most likely environmental exposure to carcinogenic chemicals that could have contributed to the brain tumor. Mom never lived in Love Canal or other areas with unusually elevated cancer rates.

Shear Design in Summerland does a great job at a good price. It's a cheery, sunny little salon right by the beach. 805-969-6414.
