The word Brazilian conjures up images of beautiful women with smooth, shiny hair enjoying the summer sun and sand without worries of frizz. New Brazilian Blowout hair treatments can help you achieve effortless shiny, straight hair for up to three months. The treatments infuse keratin and a preservative into hair using a straightening iron to keep the hair smooth. Touch-up treatments are eventually needed to straighten new growth. If this sounds like the answer to your hair prayers, here are some places you can try in Pittsburgh.
