Brazilian Blow Out

Have you heard of it?  And no, get your mind out of the gutter, it’s not something like that!

Happy Friday-eve bloggies!  I hope everyone is starting to get excited about the weekend!  I know I am.  Today after my favorite boot camp class at the gym, I got my hair done.   It was a big deal because I got something done that was very new to me.   The Brazilian Blow Out, is a straightening treatment to get rid of the waves and frizz in your hair.   It is supposed to last about 12 weeks, depending on how often you wash your hair.    It took an hour and a half, and I went from frizz central to this:

Please excuse the no make-up, post workout, look. 

I love that this is a treatment that actually conditions your hair and puts it in better shape than it was before.  So many things done to hair, color, highlighting, perming, etc. are damaging, but this is actually very replenishing.  Also, usually to get my hair this straight, it would take about an hour of blow drying, flat iron, hair serum, etc.  My hair feels so soft and healthy.  I think it’s shinier that it was before as well.

No meals to report today.  I’m going to spend the rest of the day cleaning and getting ready for lots of out of town guests.  We are baptizing Ava this weekend, and having a big shindig at the house on Sunday after the service. 

What are your weekend plans?  What treatments/work do you have done to your hair?

  1. Um....you look gorgeous in your "after workout" picture....and your hair looks fabulous! My friend had that done recently and LOVES it!!! I got my hair straightened back in the day when it first came out and it took all the body out of my hair. :( Now I just get it colored/highlighted every few months.
