Where to go for Brazilian Blowouts in Scottsdale/Phoenix Arizona

After transitioning for 9 months (with the hopes of going a full year) I ended up doing a spur of the moment big chop with my husband in the bathroom last month. It was quite liberating and slightly scary to have my husband cut off my straight ends, but I loved the end result.



With a few trips planned for the next couple of months, I was debating between a sew-in or the Brazilian Blow Out. I’ve been hearing lots of women raving about their results from the Brazilian Blow Out treatment and couldn't help but become curious to learn more.

My girlfriend recommended her amazing stylist and owner of the Apricot Lounge Salon, Kimberly Allison, to me… and after a consultation I’ve decided to give it a try! I’m excited to not only have the process done, but be able to pick Kimberly’s brain as she’s worked with celebs like Keyshia Cole. My appt is for Thursday so I'm looking forward to being able to share my results with everyone!!

Below are a few before and after photos of Brazilian Blow Outs that Kimberly has done already. For more info visit their site or facebook page.

Curly hair before




Shiny, frizz free hair after... and her curl pattern isn't lost.







Natural Hair Before



After the treatment, the curl pattern is loosened for 10-12 weeks, but not permanently lost (like with a relaxer or texturizer... you'll get your curls back)



Hair can be blown out with just a round brush. No flat iron was used to style her hair. Hair is left shinier and healthier.

After - So much shine

OMG I think I got to make an appt! I have a wedding to go to in two weeks and was debating on going straight for it with my 5mos natural hair getting pressed (but of fear in loosing my curls I was on the fence) or whether to do a weave cap....I am okay with wearing it natural anytime but at THIS wedding you know how women like to do....get noticed and be the center of attention....lol

Love the photos and thanks for sharing!

Whoa. And you can get your curl back in about 10 weeks? Is a Brazilian blowout different from a Dominican blowout? These result are mind-boggling

WOW so when was your last perm? My last perm was 5/29/09 and u DEF have way more hair then me. You are a fast grower! It looks AWESOME!

@ Skeeta - My last relaxer was 5/20/09... right about the same tie as you. I didn't realize my hair grew fast. It feels like it takes forever lol... I stopped focusing on length and hair goals because it was driving me crazy. I just want healthy hair.
