Your most precious resource is your time. On average, women spend about 53 minutes a week working on their hairstyle! But, you can’t go out with a ponytail or bun every day.
Most of us weren’t born with hair that we don’t need to style. But, what can you do to reduce your hair styling time? How about a smoothing treatment?
We put together a quick guide to explain the differences and benefits of getting an agave smoothing treatment or a Brazilian blowout. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know before booking your salon appointment.
What Is an Agave Smoothing Treatment?
An agave treatment eliminates almost all frizz and volume in your hair. You can also expect about an 80% reduction in curl retention time. That means you may have a hard time getting your hair to hold a curl if you want that hairstyle.
Agave smoothing treatments use a special amino acid complex (Carbo-C) to change the hair’s chemical bonds. This gentle method reforms the bonds in such a way that makes your hair sleek and smooth like glass.
What Is a Brazilian Blowout?
It seems like every full-service salon advertises its Brazilian blowout these days. But what is it and how does it differ from a regular blowout service?
This service creates a protective keratin protein barrier around each strand of hair to banish and protect against frizz. It smooths the hair cuticle from root to tip and makes your hair shafts less porous.
After applying the liquid keratin, the stylist will blow-dry the hair, straighten it, rinse out the solution, then blow-dry the hair once more. The heat from the hairdryer and straightener causes the keratin to activate and bond to the hair shaft.
How Long Do They Last?
Getting your hair treated will make easy hairstyles a breeze, but the treatment’s effects don’t last forever! Both the agave treatment and a Brazilian blowout last about 10-12 weeks. If you want to extend the life of your treatment, make sure to use sulfate-free shampoo and wash your hair every other day.
Where Can You Get These Treatments?
You may see advertisements for these salon services, but make sure you look up reviews first. Less skilled stylists that don’t know the proper process could damage your hair! Make sure the stylist you choose knows how to do these services well by looking for reviews or asking for pictures of their recent work.
Making Your Haircare a Smoother Process
When you do smoothing treatments, you’ll notice your hair looks better without any styling. You might even run a brush through it and go!
Keep this article in mind when you’re deciding which hair salon services you want to try. Make sure to experiment until you find what works best for your hair.
