Brazilian Blowout is a liquid keratin formula that adheres to your hair to create a protective layer around each strand, effectively reducing frizz and sealing the cuticle.
Therefore, it will repair chemical damage and better seal-in color pigments.
That’s why this product, which originated in Brazil and uses ingredients native to the country, such as camu camu, annatto seed, and acai berry, is so effective against frizz.
Your colored hair will be hydrated, less frizzy, and as shiny as a mirror after receiving the treatment.

Why is Brazilian Blowout so effective on colored or highlighted hair?
Brazilian Blowout is an ideal product for colored or bleached hair that needs to be repaired because it restores the cuticles broken by chemicals, leaving your hair soft and frizz-free.
When can you do the treatment on your colored hair?
It is always best to do it immediately after coloring your hair. Why?
Let’s look at it very simply.
When you color your hair, there are two key ingredients involved for the color to be deposited in your hair fiber:
- Hydrogen peroxide: it softens the hair cuticle to dissolve natural hair color.
- Ammonia: it opens the hair cuticle to deposit new color.
To get the best out of the coloring process, your hair needs to absorb the pigments, which means there shouldn’t be any elements that prevent the color molecules from penetrating the hair.
If you color your hair after the Brazilian Blowout, three things could happen:
- Frizz in some places
- Uneven hair color
- Elimination of part of the keratin from the Brazilian Blowout
Can you see your advantage?
You already have colored or highlighted hair! That’s why you can do the Brazilian Blowout whenever you want, whether it’s the same day you dye or highlight your hair, three days later, or ten days later.
You will get the best of both processes: coloring and the Brazilian Blowout.
As we said before, during hair coloring, the ammonia opens the hair cuticles to deposit the color pigments. It triggers an oxidation process that increases the pH level of the hair to 10.
As a result, colored hair becomes weak, brittle, and dry. But, when you do a Brazilian Blowout hair treatment after coloring, you will:
- Repair your hair
- Balance pH
- Smooth and close the cuticles
Also, keratin coats the hair with a strong protective layer that prevents color pigments from escaping when washing or exposing it to sunlight.
Now, if you need to renew your hair color, but you already did a Brazilian Blowout, things change completely, and that’s what I’m going to talk about next.
How to renew hair color or highlights if you already did a Brazilian Blowout
If you’ve already done a Brazilian Blowout to your hair and now you want to color it, bad news!
You’ll have to wait at least two weeks to color your hair. Otherwise, you’ll degrade the treatment and lose some of the keratin’s effect. What will happen then?
Your hair will be rough and frizzy again.If you can’t wait two weeks because your color looks too untidy, you should use Brazilian Blowout Ionic bonding spray. This product will help you get the keratin effect back.
Now, the only area where you can color your hair even if you previously did a Brazilian Blowout is in the roots, either in full color or highlights.
Do you know why?
Because Brazilian Blowout is applied leaving two or three centimeters off the roots because the product should not touch the scalp or virgin hair.
So, if you only want to do a roots color renewal, you can apply the color only on that section of your hair.
The same goes for highlights.
If your highlights have grown and you want to touch up the roots, you can do it without touching the rest of your hair because, if you do, the keratin will prevent the dye from penetrating the hair fiber.
Brazilian Blowout is ideal for colored or highlighted hair because it repairs the damage caused by chemical processes.
However, you must apply the hair dye before the Brazilian Blowout so that the chemicals do not wash the keratin away.
If you already have colored hair, apply the Brazilian Blowout with total peace of mind all over your hair.
The only time you will renew your color, if you have already used Brazilian Blowout, is when you are touching up the roots. In that case, you will only be applying the dye on the growth, which is the only section where keratin is never applied.
