Okay, maybe I'm just behind on the latest hair trends but have you heard of a Brazilian Blowout? Well, let me educate you:
Salons guarantee after a Brazilian Blowout your hair will be frizz free and manageable for 6-12 weeks, depending on how well you take care of it. Apparently, it is also humidity proof. Here is a before and after picture from the Brazilian Blowout website:
When I first read about these I thought that would be great for this mop I'm growing out. Not that I would be getting one anytime soon but I was thinking it would cost about $100.00. Well, guess how much they cost?
Go ahead. Guess.
$411.00! Now if you don't want the take home treatment that makes it last longer it's "only" $250.00. I wish I had a hidden camera when I heard that number. There I was driving along Texas Avenue in the lovely College Station when this very polite girl in a local salon says, "The full treatment is $411.00." Oh. My. Gosh. Are you comprehending that? Four hundred and eleven dollars....for a hair treatment...that doesn't last forever.
Needless to say, I won't be getting one. I think I'll just stick with my flat iron.
