My hair was flat-ironed once, blow-dried twice, painted with a protein treatment by three stylists and washed four times over the course of 90 minutes today. I was a model for a Brazilian Blowout training seminar at Spalon Montage. The treatment costs $200 to $250 and the promise is three months of silky smooth, frizz-free hair. Initial reaction: my hair is smooth, sleek, shiny and totally cooperative - but then, I would expect no less after three stylists - and a teacher - worked on it at the same time. True, they didn't use any finishing products to get it to stay in place and it does feel really silky. The real test will come when I attempt to style it myself...and when I take it on vacation, for a week of humidity, salt water and chlorine. Then I'll let you know if I'd recommend it.
