It?s the hottest trend in hairstyle now. The Brazilian Blowout — the keratin smoothing hair treatment that took over Hollywood last year was suddenly booked on my calendar. I was told it would only take 90-minutes and would be perfect for that last minute photo shoot or hot date.
I had seen photos of celebrities with their new shiny manes and assumed it wasn?t for me. After all, I already had straight hair. But somehow, my hair never looked as good as it did on the day of my monthly visits with Steven Crithfield of Claudio d?Italia in Brentwood.? I just couldn?t do it on my own.
Steven convinced me to try this simple treatment. I figured if it was good enough for Halle Berry, Lindsay Lohan, Ashley Tisdale, and Nicole Richie?s manes? it was worth a try. Who wouldn?t want Jennifer Anniston perfect-hair on a daily basis? The Brazilian Blowout products are even listed in Vanity Fair as Janie Bryant?s favorite shampoo. It was time to go Brazilian.
When I arrived at the salon in Brentwood, Steven greeted me with a smile and snapped the ?before? photo. The treatment started with the Brazilian Blowout Acai shampoo. I was told that these products were similar to those that come from the rain forests in Brazil and actually improve the condition of the hair. No harsh chemicals were used.
After 90-minutes the final touch of the Acai Smoothing treatment was applied to my hair, which was then flat-ironed and ready to go. Thank you Steven for washing the frizz right out of my hair. I may not make it back to Rio this year, but you’ll find me in Brentwood.
