Now look, the hair you’ve regrown may fall out, and you’re going to return to the rate at which you were losing hair before you began treatment, So if you stop using it. It contains cysteine, that I believe is also a component of Garnier’s Sleek and Shine Blow Dry Perfector.
I imagine the new formula’s smell won’t be pleasant if cysteine’s present in any appreciable quantity.
Not sure how permanent an effect you’d have you may disrupt some disulfide bonds in the hair fiber temporarily. Do you know an answer to a following question. We all pick our poisons don’t we? You should take this seriously. For me, Actually I eat/be as healthy as I possibly can. I use Coppola and do it myself. Oftentimes I will continue to, as it’s the next best beauty enhancement since the wheel.
There really ain’t any methylene glycol in the ingredient list for the new product, Just a note -I think BB has been upfront about what’s in the BB Zero. I am more interested in how this kind of a product could’ve identical effect as one containing formaldehyde. We did the BB Zero on half of her head and none of us were impressed anyway. We still had to spend time blowdrying, and the treated side of the head showed this subtle difference, Know what guys, I doubt we could be bringing this product into our salon. Have you heard about something like this before? Our test model was a typical curly/frizzy hair type that we had with the last Keratin smoothing treatment we used. Needless to say, my salon had training day on the BB Zero. You’re confident that nearly any stylist would use gloves and be careful not to get the solution on the skin.
Being that if you don’t it could indeed be dangerous.
The BB Acai solution said it had no formaldehyde and similar harsh chemicals.
Why? Why, when the company went to such great pains to say it was safe? Use the gloves, use proper ventilation, and take other precautions to minimize exposure when you use the product. Consequently, people know to take precautions because The whole point is to describe the contents accurately. On the basis of plenty of the comments above I can not see any reason to think the BB Zero provides many benefits whatsoever, and I should be surprised if there are any hardcore scientific studies of BB Zero’s effect on hair proteins. It’s up for grabs, maybe a hair stylist could answer this question better. Fact, mostly there’s much talk about products being not only formaldehyde free but free as a matter of fact, that kind of talk wipes out an entire functional group from consideration! Ah, and that’s a story for another time. For example, I just thought that I should let you guys know about it.
F450 Amino Fusion by Thermafuse.
It’s the salon type where you will never expect to find a Keratin Treatment.
I found the most wonderful little salon that really tries to focus on health and wellness. I looked it up and was excited to find many blogs about it containing before and after pictures… a certain amount these pics astounded me. Look it up for yourself. Plenty of info can be found easily by going online. They had something different. Consequently, they promised on their website that Undoubtedly it’s formaldehyde and keratin free… lots of products have promised this. They try to be organic and all natural in their products. I contacted them and they ld me the name of the product. Thus, I actually believe this story highlights a few important problems regarding product disclosure, government protocols, and media hysteria. Write. Side note to all. Just keep reading! The treatment actually leaves your hair extremely silky, defrizzed and smooth. Straighteners are now superfluous. It dries smooth, So in case I leave my hair to air dry. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… First time I had it done and washed my hair, it felt like my hair had been transplanted with someone else’s!
Leaving it to air dry would result in a bird’s nest effect, before having BB. Hair also takes 5 minutes to blowdry, and I no longer need to use a brush / nozzle or serum. I was able to blow dry my hair in 10 -15mins or 45 mins, Previously I have had two BB treatments which have worked really well on my hair and lasted 3 -4 months. I recently had the BB Zero treatment and it did not take to my hair. Basically, I had the treatment on Friday and did not wash my hair until Sunday afternoon and my hair was similar condition as it was prior after one washing. I will follow up with them next week. I went back to my salon and my Stylist noticed that it did not take so they applied a BB Mask, supposed to seal the BB treatment?? Now pay attention please. Accordingly the salon Changing times in Tillicum mall had offered to call the company.
I was glad there was a bb zero and I tried.
BB zero does not work.
They did my highlights for free after a few days but I am still waiting to hear from the owner as they can not return the money. It’s a well-known fact that the salon shouldn’t offer that product!! I did have the original bb and it worked really well. Company is lying saying that it delivers identical results. I was charged 300 dollars and it was a waste of time and money. Now look, the stylist was coughing and her eyes irritated by the end of the treatment. To be honest I can remember the whole methylene glycol/formaldehyde thing being confusing, Therefore if someone doesn’t know much about chemistry. Considering the above said. Especially when certain people are arguing depending on CAS numbers, and similar, and when ain’t recalling their original formula. Betcha it happens especially with people like you continuing to tell them that there’s no way it should be hazardous. You’re wrong, and that’s exactly what makes you dangerous, whatever your motive is. You talk about averages but what are you planning to do when and hereupon never give my money to this company again. Salon is willing to redo my hair this week. What bothers me the most is that I contacted Brazilian Blowout and they did call and said they have wonderful reviews and that it’s the stylists fault. Then the original is amazing and leaves my hair almost straight for about 3 months at a time. I have used both original BB and the Zero. Nonetheless, not as curly as it’s naturally, even after 4 months, my hair is very wavy. Basically, the Zero doesn’t work for me. Certainly, I am very skeptical of this new safe version and question if So it’s formaldehyde free, despite the list of ingredients. With all that said… I woke up this morning with an awful migraine and nausea. Besides, a question about BB Zero… are there any ingredients that are potentially dangerous in this new version? Basically, does anyone know if there been tests done to prove this new version truly is formaldehyde free? For instance, whenever believing this to be a safe product for myself and my stylist, my eyes and nose were gushing throughout the entire procedure… significantly more during blow drying, yesterday I received the treatment.
My stylist was baffled and very upset, as I am her second client with this issue. I received the Coppola Keratin treatment 8 months ago, and this formaldehyde free treatment did not produce these effects. By the way I cannot offer for awhile because being since the cancer risks, I have not received the original BBO. I will make it fairly simple for you to know how BB Zero measures up to this product, I was extremely satisfied with the Coppola treatment. You should take this seriously. In regards to effectiveness, I will report back to allow you to all know how it holds up. Nevertheless, you can wash your hair as normal, almost any 2 days or whatever -no greasiness required. That’s where it starts getting very intriguing. Not after a few shampoos, as you suggest, the effect does wear off over time. A well-known fact that is. Around 20 30″ shampoos gradually make the treatment wear off. Essentially, it was still frizzy and I went to a humid place and encountered rain, and my hair was pretty much similar to before I wasted $ 300 on this treatment, right after the second wash.
I was anxious to get this done and realize now that the few online socalled reviews are probably promos.
It looked great after they styled it at the salon.
What a disappointment! After my first wash it was actually drier and frizzier than before when I let it dry naturally. Fact, I had the ZERO done two weeks ago, and it didn’t work really for me. There’s loads of variability in chemical use, number of ‘blowouts’ per shift, flat iron temperature, and ventilation. Lab fees should run you about $ 40 per sample and I’d suggest that you collect 4 samples per blow out. Essentially, and a board certified industrial hygienist, I actually would strongly recommend that you seek technical assistance to assess your worksites, as a former OSHA Compliance Officer. OSHA has published a really good hazard alert to inform you of your employer requirements.
For ages being that some data collected at unknown locations under unknown conditions is posted, doesn’t mean that you’re free and clear.
Ultimately, the measured formaldehyde exposure on your stylists will determine the extent your salon will need to comply with OSHA’s formaldehyde standard.
I hope this information is useful. For ages being that each salon and stylist is unique. A well-known fact that is. It makes sense that formaldehyde will smooth hair. Scanning through the list of ingredients,, To be honest I really don’t notice anything that looks like camouflaged formaldehyde. Oftentimes formaldehyde can react with free amino groups to join hair proteins together, that seems like it would even out the surface of hair strands. Is this stuff legit? With that said, the poser is… so you kind of need formaldehyde for this stuff to work properly? It’s awrite the second application really burned so I had it rinsed out and had conditioner applied. Lye based straightners just don’t work for me.
Lye also burns.
The burning stopped.
My problem with the new formula is the product has lye. Generally, it worked like a miracle on my very curly hair. I should continue to get it done. My stylist is very cautious about using the product only with significant ventilation. Known she also applies it quickly. Why cant I get the hair treatment I prefer, I tally ‘agree we’ must have the right to ‘pick our poison’ in that I can smoke cigarettes if I seek for to. I had the original BB treatment done twice in the last year. I landed on for ages being that I saw an article about BB Zero and was preparing to try it. I am interested in the Zerran product and should like to receive more information from people that used it or have knowledge about it. It is it does not sit right with me, Actually I read about it. Please help! I am not sure about Thermafuse. Eventually, it gives a horrifying reaction to my eczema that causes me to become a hermit. Sometimes I look a mess, To be honest I will go without treatment for now. I truly appreciate for a while as I can’t use lye in my hair. Its difficult to accept any other textures, when you go straight hair.
I just started using a product called Reallisse by Zerran.
a smoothing system that is vegan and uses corn, wheat and oat proteins.
It has just launched in Canada. I can not compare it to BB or BB zero or any other keratin treatments but glad that Surely it’s not linked to all the negative problems. Therefore, hope this helps. Let me tell you something. I never used BB or any other because of all the negative Hype. A well-known fact that is. Just search it on the web. I did it to a co worker and myself and in my opinion That’s a fact, it’s great. It has a sister product called Reform which is a permanent straighting system. By the way I can assure you that we are not all ditzy and clueless, as a ‘scientificallyminded’ person. With all that said… Perry, regardless of the safety of the BB, Know what, I just seek for to dispel a bit of your ideas about the effectiveness of the BB.
I resent the idea that women are unable to make an assessment of their own hair as they was blinded by the hype. Some women may just love the fact that they can look groomed / professional without having to waste time in the morning styling their hair. Besides, the Heat protecting properties are really up to the individual. Needless to say, the products themselves do not appear to provide any kind of thermal protection, obviously by using this equipment less the hair will experience less damage throughout the effective time of the treatment. Therefore, most brands claim the treatments will reduce thermal damage to the hair following the service, however as far as I can tell so that’s for awhile because being since the reduced drying time and reduced need for heated tools.
Further more if you guys are getting running noses or itchy eyes and similar your performing the treatment WRONG! I’d you read instruction it suggest that the hair be 75percentage percent dry or 50 with zero and not to do this with a blow dryer only use a wel and bloat well also this stops from over saturation of product hence why u must never use more therefore 2 caps fulls now if u do the treatment incorrectly and dry the hair a 100 percent and apply it on dry hair ur definitely using any procedure u do on a client equates to about 3 or 4 by the book treatments thats 1200 dollars your throwing it away by not folling directions and the hair needs to have water in hair as a proper catalyst for the treatment I’m sorry all you stylist are idiots do your research and know what your performing! Accordingly the first three weeks, my hair looked nice.
I shan’t get the Brazilian Blowout Zero again.
I was really anxious to get the Brazilian Blowout done at a salon in Altoona.
My hair was back to the way it used to be, after that. Know what guys, I will have learned another difficult and expensive lesson, I’d say in case not. Also, I should like to try the original. I’m hoping it works. Anyway, I paid $ 300 for the Brazilian Blowout Zero, to my extreme disappointment. It doesn’t work. Essentially, save your money. Hi Joann I should actually concur with what bb said stylist dont realize that bb zero is less forgiving and the procedure is slightly different they must take 1/8 to 1/4 inch sections when applying and flat ironing wit the original it was biggers sections. Use your instinct, So in case something is irritating your throat, eyes thence thats not right. Ilove my hair with the brazilian and been doing them for 2 years but I am now stopping, its not worth your health and the company is a little not forth coming and I can not trust that. As a stylist for 25yrs I have used and love the results of the original but very skeptical because of the company no actually coming out publicly to defend there selves.
And therefore the new ZERO from brazilianblowout does NOT give identical results. Now claiming the ZERO does identical is just false advertisement and Im feeling it is just one the twisted more info there putting out there. You have pin straight hair for a few months/ yrs but is it worth risking your health and possibly loosing your hair in the end because of these harsh chems + high heat? I really look for to ask some women. Not the ammonia or peroxide that originally make the change in the hair, Surely it’s comparable to a colorrefreshing shampoo or conditioner which contain the ne one might look for to refresh. I hope that helps! COMMOM CENSE WILL TELL YOU THAT YOU CANT FLAT IRAN A HAIR WET!!!!
THATS CRAZY!!! IHEARD FROM SO MANY CLIENTS AND SAW WITH MY OWN EYES SALON OWNERS USING THE FLA IRON, RIGHT AFTER THE SOLUTION WAS APPLIED… WITHOUT BLOWDRYING THE HAIR…. It’s vital to know which products contain formaldehyde so you can take extra special precautions that you wouldn’t otherwise. I’m certainly don’t have the qualifications to make a judgment about public health concerns, Oooh, To be honest I can only offer my opinion. From my limited understanding, I reckon other formaldehyde containing hair products are regularly used in it’s dangerous especially to the stylist. Seriously. Anyone who has already used BB shall not be satisfied with anything else. I choked when I did myself and had a racing heart, that summer I did alot of these treatments and had an unexplained wheeze. You should take it into account. Not me. You must wear gloves that time, in any circumstances please do not breath the fumes!! It’s abeing that they say on their bottle and insist that they was truthful, as the manufacturer of a line of hair products.
It just BLOWS MY MIND -even with all the scientific evidence to the contrary. Now this new set of marketing to continue the lying. On p of this, thanks for striving to set the record straight. Thank you for the quote above To clarify. Nobody has claimed the aftercare products contain a bonding agent, and the ingredients of every are listed on the bottle, as is mandated for ‘home use’ products. Eventually, not the chemical agents, I’ve been taught.’ in other words, the proteins and botanical smoothers. You should take this seriously. I did the Zerran … ha! You see, aFTER home shampoo that claims it works.
Used BB 3 times and later noticed severe alopecia… 3 huge bald spots… yes I was stressed at the time but that combination may been my demise … at any rate a product with that amount of toxicity.
Brazilian Blowout Zero does not work!
It was a tal waste of everyone’s time the lack of results were immediately obvious to me and my hair dresser. Anyways, the difference is night and day. Remember, I am a client who used preZero with perfect results, consequently had it redone with Zero two weeks ago. While acknowledging that they have since learned that look, there’s a huge problem with the new formula, they kindly agreed to redo it this morning. I worry about the formaldehyde, that is why I will continue to monitor this debate and may not choose to do this again in the futurebut one problem I know for sure.
So there’s no reason to waste time and money on the new version, a product that delivers absolutely Zero value, the original product works.
When a manufacture produces a product it usually has a reason to use their complete line.
Be careful of hidden ingredients from other brands that strip the hair. Brazilian Blowout, the gold bottles, is designed to use their shampoo and masque at least once a week. Keep reading. If you are spending $ 350 after that, another $ 75 seems excessive. Certainly, try a mini BB 46″ weeks after your initial BB to refresh and get NEW growth. I know sticker shock happens on retail goods but not all shampoos are identical. As a result, I have yet to use a chemical straightener for any longer being that it seems that the manufacturers aren’t actually very much in to the clients and only look for to profit. I do not know how much can cause one’s scalp to burn or react but I would probably stay away. I can’t imagine how that can be healthy for one’s hair especially since we have relaxers/perms that are for a while being that many have said that it burns.
Sorry but I noticed that one ingredient in the Brazilian Blowout Formula is Sodium Hydroxide which is the scientific term for LYE.
Not nearly identical burning, itching, etcetera I found that odd.
I mentioned this to my stylist and asked her if they had changed the product she said no. I am so glad I stumbled upon this site. I was thrilled. Found it odd that the results werent quite similar. If I cant have the original formula consequently I’m not wasting my time or money. With that said, went back a second time. I love my stylist but she LIED. Sounds familiar? Thought I will do it again since I liked it once, didnt like it once, and needed a tie breaker. Usually, should have saved me that $ 300 for the third go round. Wish I had read this first. BIG LIE. I had the original BB done last year and it was extremely uncomfortable the entire time, my eyes burned, my chest was on fire, I couldnt stop coughing, and stuff BUT the results were unbelievable for a girl with naturally coarse thick unruly hair.
I am preparing to print this off and take it to my stylist.
Because of the restrictions on hair care products, I’m pretty sure I can’t even put anything in it to make the curls looks nice.
I wish I had found this site before I wasted the money on a BB Zero. To be honest I bought it heavily discounted from one of those Groupon/Daily Deal type sites. I’ve had the treatment about a month…I guess I’m planning to just give up and go back to using my normal ‘leave in’ conditioner regardless of what’s in it so I can look normal without using the ‘flatiron’. Texture is nowhere near silky and shiny like they claim it will be, while I admit my hair dries faster and is easier to flat iron.
They are nevertheless announcing a really new formula that doesn’t contain methylene glycol, nevertheless Brazilian Blowout emphasizes that they are not surrendering their stance.
They claim that this version, called Brazilian Blowout Zero, gives similar results as the original formula.
Whenever considering its hefty price tag, that it had better. With that said, if you need, enable you to know how it goes, when I get the treatment I will. Of course, there is a link for the MSDS form for the F450 AFST -Should pop up as a.pdf. I hope this helps! Usually, now I’m confused about how they avoid ‘greasy looking’ hair -if just a few shampooings will neutralize the Blowout’s effects, enough people is being happy with the original product’s results to maintain the hype. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… Interesting, thanks for those points! By the way I will also continue to use BB on my own hair outside when there’s a slight breeze, I actually will lok.
Does contain frizz somewhat, and I have only tried it on finer hair, I have tried Kera Spa, leaves natural curl.
I can’t I’m almost sure I am of coarse just a laymen.
At what cost, I get that those of us with unruly. Coarse hair have found a product that gives us beautiful hair. I have to say my hands were like sand paper when I got done, my throat burned as did my eyes. Anyways, I am trying other products and have not found one to be nearly what BB is, To be honest I cant even say having a wind tunnel fan blowing directly at you will be safe. Oftentimes I am so torn, what happens if down the road Surely it’s for any longer period of long long time effects of BB are detrimental? Ok, and now one of the most important parts. I guess its like smoking some are planning to do it I was unaware at the time that it was, well not good for you usually, however I did use it after preparing to a class up in Sioux Falls, the reps there were adamant about not having to use glove and proper ventilation is all that is needed, we questioned them again and again, and the woman do the BB, on one of our salon owners insisted she did a few of these a day, I don’t think so.
I am no chemist but I have used this product a few times with a EPA approved vent system, It’s not good, By the way I for ages it needs to get out of your system, or does it ever?
It seems to me that there must be a chemical reaction occurring between hair and ingredients in BB, otherwise the results can’t last.
Aftercare products seem to do something that prevents the reversal of said chemical reaction. If no product comes in contact with your skin, for a salon stylist like yourself, and the ventilation is good enough that you can’t smell the product before, during, or after application, therefore it is probably reasonably safe for the stylist. Thus they throughout the application, as far as for the clients -I imagine it’s not great for the product to come in contact with their scalp. With all that said… Since heat could drive the expulsion of the formaldehyde linking gether hair amino acids, -and it is just speculation -I would imagine that more frequent heating of BBtreated hair will result in a shorter lifetime of the treatment effects.
Besides, the original BB may seem to protect hair from heat styling by decreasing the appearance of flaws just like split ends and frizziness -these flaws are often used synonymously with damaged.
Thanks for replying here and sharing your understanding, Jordana!
My curiosity is piqued about how quite a few other hair care products work on a molecular level. With the straight effect, what should the result be. With a shampoo/ or condtioner with methylene glycol. Therefore the service of Brazilian done the next day. Would the amino acids/ proteins. Without the traces methylene glycol gasses escaping, and reducing the safety risk. Sigh, By the way I figured I must chime in, I actually got the BB zero for myself to do in the premises, and I must say, it did not work… All it did was make my hair feel a tad softer and that’s it.
My hair is not even thick or curly, it’s really REALLY fine with a wave through it and frizz. I followed the directions perfectly but still managed to have poor results. I loved the way it left my hair so smooth shiny and silky and youthful looking. That is interesting.a week later I went back to the doctor cause the pain was unbearable. I’ve been taking all kinds of vitamins to try and keep my hair. Now let me tell you something. Should never ever do the BB again, I’m almost sure I am taking Biotin and fish oil, HoShumon and Biosil and Vitamin I should love to have the silky smooth hair. Month after having it done, By the way I got a sore throat that lasted 7 weeks.
That stuff burned my nose and throat so if you feel you must do it, you must wear a mask to protect your nose and throat.
I have had the BB done twice.
My throat hurt so bad that I had to make a trip to the emergency room and they gave me numbing meds to numb my throat cause I couldn’t swallow it hurt so bad. I worry a lot now about throat for ages being that my throat still becomes sore at times and when the doctor did a routine check the other day she mentioned how dark red it was inside my nose. You should take this seriously. No more! Please don’t do this or if you know of something that will make or a lot hair!! Now look. It was 8 months since I had BB and my scalp still has sores that are finally going away and I believe for the most part there’re I actually am not recommending it to anyone.
That should be great, I’d say if someone should please make sure a safe way to do this treatment.
BUT SPARE THE OTHERS who choose not to!
Respect gonna be given to those who choose not to do this service and spare their clients potential health problems! Needless to say, you are right about the ‘smoking’ comparison.The real problem is in a salon setting for the stylists who choose not to do this they are stuck next someone who does.THAT is WRONG. Actually, separate days for just BB must be striving to know the consequences, disappointed to find the company had lied about the formaldehyde.
I had the first BB treatment twice and really liked it.
By the way I wasn’t sure if it is also something that can cause internal damage as well, it seems most complaints are from breathing the air? It is amid the most thorough posts I’ve that I am thankful for. Besides, into the bloodstream, bB treatment only emit a dangerous gas in the air in the course of the drying/straightening process, or is it also absorbed through the scalp? Doesn’t it sound familiar? If you don’t value your health you have a poser. Of course I seek for to work without a runny nose, ‘tight band around’ -my -head feeling, and difficulty breathing. Of course tony, I don’t carepercentage of any chemical is acceptable. They’re not turning a profit from selling you a product, OSHA, for sake of example, is concerned with occupational safety.
I do encourage you to look up ‘nonbiased’ sources of information about how to safely use salon products. All the best to you, and I hope you stay in good health. I am a Hairstylist, and do not perform this service.I work in a salon that does the Brazilian Blowout service and have experienced first hand at the health problems it induced! Severe burning/sinus pain/eye pain/headache. Now pay attention please. NO, Actually I would NOT continue to do this service.What your client is experiencing with her sinuses is exactly what has happened to me. I will be looking to find a salon that does not do these…for your personal health!
I don’t even DO this service!Cancer survivor??? For ages being that someone does not seem to have a ‘reaction’ does not mean you are not still being constantly exposed to Formaldehyde. How amazing to find an organometallic chemist. I suffered through a chem class with amongst the pioneers of organometallics at Cornell. Glad to see you are having more success. Normally, I’m also glad to see you are not engaging in the chemophobia that quite a bit of the blogosphere is with regards to BB. Chemical relaxing is permanent, it seems like they midly relax your hair. It’s the active ingredient in most ethnic hair straightners. How do they bring the pH back down? That relaxes the hair, no? What about the sodium hydroxide aka lye?
Since the pH of the product as a whole is acidic, in this case I doubt it’s having very similar effect, You’re right that lye can be/has been used to relax curly hair.
In this case, I reckon the NaOH is just there to buffer the product to the correct pH, and without it the product my be you have to at least use another highquality, ‘sulfatefree’ line, I’d say in case you opt not to use the Brazilian Blowout Acai line. Every time you use the Acai Hair Care you’re helping to enhance and deposit a bit more of that protective layer to keep the cuticle smooth and shiny, jordana explains that the Acai line contains most of the active ingredients that are in the Brazilian Blowout treatment itself.
I waited and researched about BB for months before I got it.
I still have to either flatiron or round brush it to death, By the way I for ages blonde hair with some natural wave and hoped to tame the frizz and shorten drying time…I should say that my drying time was shortened somewhat.
My stylist dd the BB Zero 4 days ago and I am so displeased! For instance, my hair still has frizz and only has one my head part that is straighter. Do NOT use BB Zero!!! Whenever resulting in the hair strands being held in the new conformation, in the course of the heating and pressing of the hair, new disufide cross links form in the keratin. Thioglyocolic acid is sometimes used in straighteners. Hair fibres relax, the idea is that the free thiol reduces the disulfide bonds in the keratin. You should take this seriously. My guess is the cysteine is the major active.
I tried the BB Zero a few times and Surely it’s not working.
I have used regular BB and on p of that Simply Smooth keratin treatment which both worked better.
How disappointing! I did not seek for to use those anymore since they emit the formaldehyde when flat ironing. For example, I actually bought a salon sized bottle from a stylist online. Needless to say, the last time I had Coppola done I could smell it, that never happened before, and after a while had intense scalp itching and weird hair. I’m using Wen now and happy with it. I think that if the Zero doesn’t work my stylist will redo with original BB. Just has the BB Zero done yesterday. Certainly, I was really in for a while being that for a while naturally blonde hair is a mess without some sort of treatment. BTW I hate the follow up shampoos, either coppola or BB. She uses it and well as her stylist sister and they have used ti on numerous clients. I think that results are so variable relying upon the type and condition of one’s hair that comparisons are very difficult. I will rahter have NO hair than hair that isn’t helped in one of these ways.
I had my hair japanese straightened three times over the course of two years, after that, had coppola done three times over a year with perfect results.
My stylist has used Coppola, BB and BB Zero and feels that Zero leaves more body in the hair with more shine and lasts about similar interval as BB. I had a BB treatment yesterday and so far, am thrilled with the results. I was advised to buy the official BB acai shampoo, conditioner and a treatment product but due to cost I postponed buying it until I’ve done more research. Is it really necessary to use the BB aftercare products?
Are there more economical alternatives?
I can not find much information/research/safety information about this product, only what appears to be a PR release on a couple of different websites.
Goupon posted an extremely discounted Brazilian Blowout Zero at a salon in my area. So, I became interested in it when I realized that this product does not contain formaldehyde, as the original formula does, that I have heard a lot controversy about. Does anyone have any information as to this product’s safety? I did some further research to make sure if so it’s a product I will feel comfortable using and I came across this blog. That’s interesting right? I don’t look for to risk my health, I would like to use a hair smoothing product. I have read plenty of the readers comments about a vegan formula that does not contain formaldehyde and akin harsh chemicals, called RealLisse, produced by a company called Zerran. Thanks Denise.
