Losing My Hair From Brazilian Blowout!
Had the Brazilian Blowout done at a salon in BC, Canada and at first thought the results were amazing! Had it done August 17, 2010 and they used the trademark "Brazilian Blowout" product (I called the salon and double checked) and I also purchase the Acai shampoo and deep conditioner mask.
In the last few weeks I have noticed considerable shedding and breakage of hair. When I run my fingers through my hair 8-9 or more stands come out and some in chunks. It is falling out constantly.
The hairs around my hair line have broken off too. I called the company 1-877-779-7706 and spoke with a rep (Erin) who asked if I was allergic to fruit or nuts (no, I am not) and if I had a hair process done on my hair prior too. I did have highlights put in my hair in June 2010.
The rep stated the product may have something in it that I was allergic to and sent me a basic list of ingredients but could not send all the chemical ingredients due to it being Patent Pending. I was asking for the complete ingredient list to have me tested as she suggested I may have an allergic reaction.
The rep also stated that the salon may be at fault for using too high of heat with the flat iron on processed air from highlights which was why it was falling out. This is just beyond being plausible as my hair is coming out from the root AND breaking too.
I am obviously not the only one going through this and have found several posts and msg boards with other women experiencing the same thing.
I will continue to post and if anyone want to send me an email who is experiencing the same thing please, please let me know.
My hair is auburn, thick and long. (or, at least it used to be thick). Anyone else out there?
