Frequently asked questions
What is a Brazilian Gloss Treatment?
A Brazilian Gloss treatment is a revolutionary hair smoothing process that softens, smoothes, and dramatically restores the health and shine back into your hair. A Brazilian Gloss treatment employs the use of Keratin, a natural substance, which is in fact, the main protective substance in our hair, skin and nails. The treatment effectively bonds the keratin to the hair shaft, repairs external damage and ensures a healthy, high-gloss shine.
Is the Brazilian Gloss treatment permanent?
No, it is not permanent. The treatment lasts approximately 3 months after which the hair is completely back to its original state.
What type of hair works best for Brazilian GlossTM?
Our proprietary keratin based formula works on all hair types. This professional treatment creates a keratin bond with the hair follicle that actually works to improve the health and shine of your hair.
Is the Brazilian GlossTM treatment a relaxer?
No, this treatment is not a chemical relaxer.
How straight will Brazilian GlossTM make my hair and will I lose all of my curl?
The Brazilian Gloss treatment is not designed to make your hair completely straight or to eliminate all of your curl. You will see a substantial reduction in the amount of your curl, but your hair will maintain a healthy looking amount of volume while completely eliminating frizz.

What shampoos should I use after my Brazilian GlossTM treatment?

The Brazilian Gloss shampoo's and conditioners are specially made to extend the life of a Brazilian Gloss treatment and help to make your hair shiny, smooth and full of shine. The aftercare products are also free of any sodium chloride and are sulfate free.
Should I use Brazilian Gloss shampoos and conditioners even though I have not had a treatment done?
The Brazilian Gloss aftercare products are exceptional for eliminting frizz and are recommended for anyone that wants soft and shiny hair, regardless of whether they have had the professional salon treatment done.
Are there any restrictions on washing my hair after the treatment?
No, there are no restrictions, and unlike other treatments there are no waiting periods on washing your hair. In fact, your stylist or salon will wash and condition your hair before finishing your treatment.
Can you perform the treatment on hair that has been previously straightened or relaxed hair?
Yes, the treatment can be performed on any previously relaxed or straightened hair (including Japanese straightening systems).
On my next salon visit, should I do touch-ups on my re-growth, or should I have the whole head redone?
For a uniform appearance, the entire head should be re-treated.
