The Brazilian Blowout has a following for a reason—it smooths out frizzy hair, tames curls and makes styling a million times easier. It just has one problem—it’s potentially cancerous. Luckily, there are other treatments out there, like the Agave Healing Oil Smoothing Treatment that could take its place.
This treatment draws its power from the blue agave plant from Mexico. The amino sugars from the plant help lock in moisture and also bonds with proteins to strengthen the hair. The plant’s natural oils also nourish the hair to smooth it out and make it shinier, without completely getting rid of any natural curls or waves.
The treatment takes about two hours, lasts up to 12 weeks and can cost anywhere between $200 and $400, depending on where you go. Many women say that after having the treatment done, it cuts down their blow-dry time by more than half and their hair just feels softer. But the real bonus here is that it’s completely formaldehyde-free, making it a safe option for your strands.
