Another Brazilian Blowdry

Roughly 2 1/2 years ago I had my first Brazilian Blowdry. I actually blogged about it in April 2011: My first Brazilian Blowdry and how I felt three days after the treatment. I was really happy then and was planning to get the treatment again, but for unknown reasons I didn’t. I always said next month, when I have time as well as other excuses and now over two years have passed. I am so unhappy with my frizzy and unruly hair, it takes me forever to dry and straighten in only to get curly again with the slightest hint of humidity in the air. So annoying. I don’t have time in the mornings to spend hours getting my hair done, George is going to nursery three days a week and I want to look somehow presentable in front of the other people waiting outside. I don’t care about not putting make up on but my hair should look groomed. I always look so scruffy.

At the end of August I contacted Janna again, but she was on holiday and during September I had other worries. Today I attended the launch of the Aribella Boutique by Imogen Thomas and my hair looked perfect when I left the house – only to be frizzy once I got to the event and when I left and it was raining on my way to South Kensington. You can guess how my hair looked once I got to Harrods? No? It was curly, not nice curls that bounce and look healthy. No! Frizzy curls and there is nothing worse in the world than that.

So in pure desperation I phoned Janna three times in two minutes today, sent her a text message to get in touch and wouldn’t leave my phone out of sight. Luckily she phoned me back shortly after and she is available on Friday at 2pm. I am so happy, I am so happy – I can’t even describe it. I am currently feeling very conscious about my looks and getting my hair straight is one step to me feeling better.

Janna is a mobile, professional hairdresser with over seven years experience in London at a St. John Wood top salon and she has lots of happy clients with references to prove it. She has a NVQ Level 3 qualification and specialises in Brazilian Keratin Hair Straightening, micro-ring extensions and Balmain Hair Extensions. Janna covers all London postcodes and surrounding areas including Croydon, Surrey, Kent, Chelmsford, Brighton, Cambridge, Milton Keynes, Oxford, Birmingham, Luton, Reading, Leicester and Essex. Even if you don’t live in one of those areas you shouldn’t hesitate to contact her for a quote. Her rates are very reasonable, I pay £120 for over shoulder length thick hair. She had to use twice as much treatment as usual last time she did my hair and since then my hair has grown. It also took her four hours from the beginning to finish. I would spend a fortune in a salon and I hate sitting there for hours too.

I will take before and after pictures on Friday and share them here. Have you ever had a Brazilian Blowdry? What did you think of it and would you get the treatment again?

    I last got a Brazilian blowdry last October, and my hair really could use another one. My hair is so frizzy! 🙁 I normally get one through a wahanda or buyometric so that I get a deal.

    The lady who does mine charges a bit more than those Groupon deals, but less than half what I would pay at Daniel Galvin, if not even less and she comes to my house. So easy!
