Brazilian blowout - result and review;=)

Good evening everyone!

So this afternoon I went and tried out the Brazilian blowout zero at a salon close to me. I will tell you about what she did and what she told me about the whole discussion that arised among my comments yesterday about this being dangerous.

First of all: here´s what she said about this treatment: the original brazilian blowout DO include a gas called formal dehyde, but not the one they use in Europe now that is called Zero. The reason behind the decision from the European union to not accept the original treatment in Europe is not because it is dangerous for me as a customer. Its because this gas is dangerous to inhale for the hair dresser doing the treatment.

But this new Zero treatment is ok and has no dangerous ingredients. So now you all know which one to use if you´re gonna do it. The thing with the formal dehyde was that with that in the product the hair was straight even if you just dry your hair and use the fingers, but the new one need that you do use a brush when drying it.

Now, let´s continue with the procedure:

When I came there, she washed my hair with special schampoo and conditioner. Then she started to put on the formula all over the hair, dividing the hair in thinner parts.
After that she blow-dried the hair almost dry just using her fingers and then continued to dry the whole hair with a round brush (just like when they blow-dry it normally)

This took quite some time to get every part really dried and with volume.

Then it was time to use the really warm flat iron and flatten the whole hair. Took quite some time again. After all was done, we rinsed it and then she blow-dried it with the round brush again and ta-da! I looked like a million dollars;=)

I didnt take a before-photo today but here´s one from some days ago:

And here´s the result afterwards:

Johan says its amazing and that I look like a polished horse...haha!

And here´s a little video;=)



  1. Hello Anette!
    I'm wondering how expensive was this brazilian blowout. I'm thinking about it from some time because my hairs like to live with their own life.

  2. Good evening =)

    I must say that the result is great. It suits you. And beautiful hair!
    Oh! And thank you for the video! I love your smile at the end. Cute!

    I wish you a lovely evening! And have a good night.

    Hugs <3

  3. Hey Anette :)
    Glad you seem to have enjoyed yourself, and your hair certainly looks amazing :)

  4. Anette,
    your look is great and Johan has right to tell about a horse, your hairs seems a mane! XD Thank for posting the pics and the video! If i'm not mistaken i can hear the Nemo's voice. *___*

    Have a nice evening!


  5. beautiful! your hair looks so much better than before ! i love my hair, and hate when it looks like i didn't care for it... how expensive is the brazilian blowout ? how frequently do you have to have it ? or is it just one time ?
    cheerz !

  6. Wow, that's a great result, Anette!
    Like a polished horse? Hm, when I look at it... some likeness is notable, yes :P

    Is this Nemo playing with his toys there in the video? ^^ Sounds like someone would put a wooden toy on the ground. Or what is that sound in the background?

    Greetings from Germany,

  7. haha a horse? ermm if you take that as a compliment dear... Hah just joking I know what he means.

    It looks gorgeous by the way, I'm very jealous as mine is like straw.

    Take Care

  8. ow wow! That looks gorgeous! Really beautiful and so polished and accurate!

    Thanks for such a useful tip, Anette, now we are informed on how these things are done :)

    How long does straightening effect last? And how do you think, will you use that brazilian therapy on a regular basis from now on? It's just that I see from the video that you're so delighted with how beautiful and million dollar looking your hair is :)
    Johan has great sence of humor, haha! Btw, as weird as it sounds, but people say that using a horse shampoo will make your hair much stronger, thicker and shiny...almost like the horse's one! haha. I think I will try it, who knows, maybe the rumours about its effect are true! Anyway, it won't get worse, I think.

    I hear Nemo's murmuring in the video..sooo cute ^__^

    Have a nice evening, Anette, and enjoy yor new amazing hairdo!

  22. Your hair looks beautiful. You are always beautiful. I love your voice and your open approach to the fans.
    The more I get to know you through your blog, I adore you more :) I'm really happy that you're part of my favorite band. And they were lucky to found someone like you. Can not wait to hear the new album and to travel around Europe following your performances.

  23. It looks great!! Here in Brazil the price for that procedure is not so expensive, but the products we have to use after that.. oh my!!! I had this done on my hair once and I loved it..

    Did they tell you all the things about how to take care of your hair? Like, you cannot use any types of shampoo, you have to use shampoos with no salt in the formula.. Anyway, your hair looks much better now :)
    See ya!

  24. Yeah =) I love it, super results !!

    Here in France, this process is reallllllllyyy expensive! Fortunately I don't need it, my hair are as strenght as yours after the Brezilian Blowout!
    But, that's also a problem cause I can't do anything with hair! They are so strength that I can't curve it, even if I put a lot of hair spray to fix it! But well, we always want to be what we're not ! =)

    Oh, I love your smile at the end of the video !!!

    Love & Hugs!

  25. Hi Anette. :)

    Your hair looks great! And oh my gosh, it is getting so long. I never realized it was that long until now. :P But yeah, your hair looks really good. :) Thanks for telling us about this/posting the video!

    Best wishes,

    Big hug to you, Johan and boys :)

  41. Hi Anette

    I'm a hairdresser and I know this techique This is a very good product ^^


  42. the sleek effect lasts for 30 washes, after this you hair still looks healthy
    if you did that before dye it in black again to mask the unhealthy look, could be even better

    you can tell Tuomas to do that!
    his hair almost screams for a good treatment like this that you have done

    why don't you use the lines Resistance and Nutritive from Kérastase? they are simply amazing
    surely you know =D

    anyway, very happy to see you joy with new restored hair

  43. ... a Race one ... no doubt...

    lots of love,

  44. Ååh, så vackertvackertvackert!
    Var det dyrt? Jag tycker att jag borde göra nåt med mitt hår, jag vet bara inte vad.. Svart skulle snyggt, jag vill bara inte att det ser hemskt ut och jag måste färga tillbaka det direkt..

  45. That is amazing! Your hair looks so beautiful... Argh I really want to have this done! I have never heard of it before.
