Anyone done one? A brazilian blowout I mean. I’m obsessed with Groupon, and twice now there have been offers for brazilian blowouts. Each time I’ve click on the link, read all about the salon, and then got nervous and didn’t buy it.
Perhaps I should give you a little background about why I want one. My hair is naturally curly. I know a lot of you are probably shocked because you’ve never actually seen me (or a picture of me) with curly hair. That’s because I straighten it. Everyday. Yep, I shower, blow dry and flat iron my hair all the time. I know it’s terrible for my hair, and during the summer sometimes I’ll say eff it and just wear it curly because the thought of blow drying my hair when it’s 110 outside is just so unappealing. But, can you imagine how much time I would save if I could just get up and shower and let my hair dry naturally but still be beautifully straight?
My sister and I always say that we wish we had a magic wand we could wave to get us ready because it takes forever. And, I truly hate the process, yet I do it all the time. I tried to find a picture with my hair curly so you could see what it looked like, but I don’t have one. If I know pictures are going to be involved, I straighten my hair. Sadly, I’m not kidding. I think it has something to do with having curly hair as a child that my parents found unmanageable and would therefore cut it short like a boy’s haircut to not have to deal with it. They would affectionately refer to it as a “rat’s nest” and I think that has made me dislike it more. Thanks, mom and dad. But also, I feel like it’s huge when it’s curly, and I know it’s not, it’s just not what I’m used to.
But seriously, has anyone had a brazilian blowout? Would you recommend it? Any pointers if I should decide to get one like what to look for when choosing a salon?
