A Brazilian hair treatment is generally carried out on human hair. As such, it reacts to the external atmosphere in the same way as natural hair. In order to make the Brazilian hair treatment last longer, it is best to opt for hair styles which ensure that the environmental damage is minimized. Excess heat or cold and wind can damage the Brazilian hair treatment. When spending time out of doors, wear a cap or a scarf to cover the Brazilian hair treatment and protect it from sunlight and the heat/ cold/ moisture of the weather. When staying outdoors for a long time, tie the Brazilian hair treatment into buns, ponytails, plaits or braids to reduce the exposed surface area. Excess use of heat treatment for styling the Brazilian hair treatment results in premature damage to the hair. A diffuser is a better option. The hair should be loosely tied to prevent it from getting pulled and broken due to tight bonding. Further, the clips used to tie the Brazilian hair treatment should be smooth to prevent them from getting entangled in the hair. Metal clips and bands, and bare rubber or elastic hair bands should be avoided. Instead, use a smooth satin or silk scarf to cover the Brazilian hair treatment when outdoors. Similarly, a silk or satin pillow cover is preferable at night to avoid friction and the resultant shedding of hair.
