- Once the Brazilian Blowout has been applied to the hair, you can wash your hair the next day if you want. But, you will have to use some specific products, which I will tell you about later.

Brazil…tropical country. So many things we have inherited from this great South American country! Caipirinhas, drumming in the zamba and wiggling in the axé, colorful and tasty tropical fruits, and of course, hair treatments to fight frizz.

How could they not want to make the most of a semi-permanent treatment that would allow them to do without the flat iron, to show off their straight and frizz-free hair?
Even if you don’t live in Brazil, but if you want to get rid of the frizz in your hair and have it perfectly straight, the Brazilian Blowout treatment is for you.And one of the first things you need to know is that your hair must be freshly washed to apply it.
- If you go to the hairdresser’s, the stylist will wash it for you before you start.
- If you decide to do it at home, you will also have to wash it previously. It would help if you used a pH-balanced shampoo.

Why you should wash your hair before applying the Brazilian Blowout treatment
Your hair must be clean before applying the Brazilian Blowout. After all, this is a keratin treatment used to fill in the hair fiber when damaged by chemical processes such as dyeing or bleaching.
If your hair is not clean when you apply the Brazilian Blowout liquid keratin, residues such as environmental dirt or hair product residues will be sealed over the hair.
Then, you’ll get dull hair at best. And, at worst?
The keratin won’t stick to the hair fiber. It won’t seal the cuticles, the frizz will still be there, and you’ll have to re-treat. It is clear.
That’s why the first step in any keratin treatment, especially in the Brazilian Blowout, is washing with a pH-balanced shampoo to remove all kinds of residues.
You should wash your hair twice and up to three times before applying the keratin because it’s the only way to make sure your hair is free of residue.
If you’re doing the treatment in the salon, your stylist will know exactly which pH-balanced shampoo to use. However, if you want to wash your hair at home before going to the salon, forget about using your regular shampoo!
You should use a pH-balanced shampoo.
So you from going crazy looking on the internet, here are some of the ones that we use in the salon before applying Brazilian Blowout:
- NEUTROGENA ANTI-RESIDUE SHAMPOO
- FREE & CLEAR SHAMPOO
- PAUL MITCHELL CHAMPÚ 3
Any of these three pH-balanced shampoos will remove all kinds of residues from your hair so that the keratin used in Brazilian Blowout works perfectly on the hair fiber.
Remember to wash your hair at least twice.
Once you get the Brazilian Blowout, your life will change.
You’ll notice your hair is much softer, shinier, and frizz-free. And that’s great news. But I have even better news: this keratin treatment has very low maintenance.
You can even wash your hair within 24 hours of the treatment. Don’t believe me? Read on.
How to wash your hair after Brazilian Blowout to make it last longer
Do you remember the instructions of all the stylists after applying the traditional keratin treatments?
Just in case, I remind you: no clips on the hair, no physical activity that can make the hair sweat, no water from washing the hair nor raindrops for at least 72 hours.
Guess what? With Brazilian Blowout, that’s history.
You can get physical activity as soon as you leave the salon, tie up your hair, wash it, and even open the door to play.
And it won’t matter if you sweat and wet your hair with the sweat drops because nothing will happen to your Brazilian Blowout treatment.
I repeat, you can wash your hair immediately after leaving the salon if you want. You don’t have to wait 24 or 48 hours to do it.
Brazilian Blowout is magic for the modern woman who does not want to waste her time or daily activities. But, you must wash it with Brazilian Blowout shampoo for better results and longer treatment duration.
Actually, Brazilian Blowout is a brand of hair products. If you go for its keratin treatment, it’s best to continue using its products to extend the effects of the product.
You should use ACAI ANTI-FRIZZ SHAMPOO BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT every time you wash your hair to continue adding keratin and strengthen the treatment.
If you can’t afford those products because they are expensive, you have the option to wash your hair after Brazilian Blowout with shampoos that do not contain sulfates nor parabens so that they do not degrade your treatment.
Sulfates are corrosive chemicals that remove dirt from your hair, but also color and hydration. The best ones?
- EVER PURE L’OREAL
- PANTENNE SULFATE FREE
While Brazilian Blowout’s shampoo and conditioner cost between $100 and $120, any of these two shampoos cost $20 or $30, and they won’t ruin the treatment.
Before applying a Brazilian Blowout, you must wash your hair with pH-balanced shampoo so that the keratin can completely penetrate the hair fiber and seal the cuticles.
After the application, you can wash your hair almost immediately, using the original brand’s hair products or shampoos without sulfates or parabens, to extend the treatment’s effectiveness.
