What is Brazilian hair straightening?
Contrary to what its name indicates, it is not a proper smoothing, but a care: It does not only feed the hair deeply, but it redefines the curls and removes frizz. How is it possible ?
It’s about making a mask with keratin on your hair. This is applied by wick with a brush, then is activated by heat with smoothing plates. The break time of the product is between 15 and 25 minutes for optimum effect. In this way, the keratin penetrates deep into your hair: it feeds them, sheaths and gives them a shiny side. The care will provide flexibility, redefinition, and nutrition without frizz or weigh down the hair.
Who is the Brazilian hair straightening for?
Almost all women and men will benefit from this care because it improves overall hair quality.
Here are the main advantages of Brazilian hair straightening:
It facilitates blow drying (setting). The hair takes the desired shape. This reduces the temperature of the hair dryer and the duration of blow drying: it is a good technique to save time when preparing in the morning and to avoid continually attacking his hair. It nourishes dry, porous and rough hair. This is especially true for hair that is regularly tested by coloring, discoloration or styling.

What are the risks of Brazilian hair straightening?
The main risks were related to the presence of formaldehyde which made it possible to stiffen and flatten the hair. We were talking about smoothing.

Canada imposes a maximum threshold in the products used. What we respect meticulously since none of our products contain formalin! Learn more about Brazilian Smoothing and all the types of smoothing that can be done with professionals at Salon 2e.
