Ok, so ya’ll know I’m never really for straightening the hair with any kind of chemical or so called natural straightener. I’m still not. But this article is very interesting. It’s about the Brazilian Blowout technique that women have been raving about to straighten their hair. As I’ve said in the past, a hot comb or a blow dryer in moderation are the only 2 methods that I tolerate if you just have to straighten your hair for a change, but I’d prefer those not to be used either if one can help it.
Read the article & leave a comment to let me know what you think. Also if you’ve tried the Brazilian Blowout let us know what your results were. Peace 🙂
