Tip of the Day : 24 February

Brazilian hair straightening


If your hair is damaged or stained and you do not want to fight against unruly curls and frizz, you may try a Brazilian hair straightening.
It is a care based on keratin and cocoa that smooths and protects the hair shaft and can be applied to all hair types. Your hair will look silky and shiny and keep an aspect of brushing in all your activities for a period of 3 to 4 months.
Smoothing is done in a salon and may be a little expensive but the result is spectacular.
And remember: after a Brazilian hair straightening, you should not wet your hair for 3 days.
