1. What is the difference between smoothing treatment, hair relaxing and Brazilian blowout straightening?
The difference is in the intensity of smoothing and in the mechanism of action. All 3 procedures alter the shape of the hair, making it smoother.
To choose the best one, it is necessary to identify the type of hair and the degree of smoothing desired by the user. Learn more about each of them:
SMOOTHING AND RELAXATION: smoothing and relaxation occur in basic pH (alkaline), having a stronger smoothing power, but also being more harmful to the hair fiber.
The basic pH (alkaline) is high. It opens the hair cuticles allowing the alkaline agent to penetrate the cortex and promote the breakdown of sulfur bonds between cysteine amino acids, which are present in hair keratin. Breaking these connections allows "shaping" the hair.
After removal of the alkaline agent, it is necessary to use a low pH product to neutralize the reaction and close the cuticles.
BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT STRAIGHTENING: unlike smoothing and relaxing, Brazilian blowout straightening occurs in acidic pH. This means that its straightening agents act in the weaker links. They weaken the hydrogen bonds, saline connections and also the cysteine bonds of the surface of the hair fiber.
2. Is Brazilian blowout straightening safe?
Yes, provided that the correct product is used.
Every smoothing product must be registered with ANVISA (Ministry of Health), classified as a product with Risk Level II. There are products with Risk Level I and Risk Level II. Learn how to differentiate them.
RISK LEVEL I: the request for notification is sent to ANVISA (Ministry of Health). There is no approval or rejection; only the notification.
RISK LEVEL II: the registration request is analyzed and can be either approved or rejected. This analysis is performed for products that are considered to have higher risks or to have functions that need to be proven. e.g.: antifall, antidandruff or children products as well as dyes, straighteners etc.
Bio Extratus Discipline Treatment, as well as any other Brazilian blowout straightening product must be registered as Risk Level II.
3. What is the secret of Bio Extratus Brazilian blowout straightener?
Discipline Treatment from Bio Extratus Transformation line has a unique blend. It has oxoacetamides associated with amino acids and plant emollients.
This blend provides a gentle smoothing that reduces volume, eliminates frizz, adds shine and movement to the hair.
Moreover, being a gentle treatment, it maintains the strength and elasticity of the strands. The line offers a progressive result, keeping the hair looking naturally smooth instead of looking artificially straightened.
4. What is the procedure?
STEP 1: Apply the Pre-Treatment Anti-Residue Shampoo to wet hair, massaging it gently. Rinse well. If necessary, repeat the application.
STEP 2: Using the blowdryer, dry the hair completely removing moisture.
STEP 3: Separate the hair into quadrants and divide them into very thin locks. Using gloves and a brush, apply a generous amount of the Volume reducer at a distance of 0.5 cm (0.19in) from the scalp, starting from the roots towards the ends. Comb each lock.
STEP 4: With the product on the hair, dry while brushing each lock.
STEP 5: Apply the flat iron 8 times on each lock (flat iron at 200°C / 392°F) Allow hair to cool for ten minutes. Rinse off thoroughly, removing all the product from the hair.
STEP 6: Remove excess water. Apply the Thermo-Protective Finisher. Finish as desired: brush your hair or let it dry naturally.
5. Can it be done at home?
Yes, just follow all the steps correctly.
For better results, we suggest asking the assistance of another person. The procedure should be carried out in stages, on each lock carefully.
Before starting, it is essential to perform the strand test.
6. What is the expected result? Does the hair become really flat or only reduce its volume?
The degree of volume reduction and smoothing depends on each hair type. The result may vary according to the degree of curling and the hair strand resistance. Thin, slightly curly or wavy hair tend to become smoother, while hair with more closed curls or resistant to smooth effect tend to reduce the volume and control frizz.
7. Why are there Brazilian blowout straighteners with a stronger power of smoothing than the one of Bio Extratus Discipline Treatment?
Brazilian blowout straighteners with a higher smoothing power usually contains formaldehyde and glyoxylic acid. Those are prohibited and illegal components.
8. How long does the effect of Bio Extratus Discipline Treatment last?
From 2 to 3 months. However, the duration may vary according to the frequency of hair washing and the type of product used. Therefore it is important to remember that the more the hair is washed, the smaller the duration of the straightening.

15. How do I know if a product is legalized by ANVISA (Ministry of Health)?
All smoothing, relaxing or straightening products must be registered by ANVISA as products of Risk Level II. Currently, many of them do not comply with this requirement, being therefore illegal. They are reported as such, because they pose risks to the health of both the hairdresser and the consumer. It is important to remember that the registration with ANVISA refers to the product and not to the using procedure. To identify it, it is necessary to consult the ANVISA site:
Anvisa > Serviços (Services) > Cosméticos (Cosmetics) > Consulte os Cosméticos Registrados - Grau 2 (See the Registered Cosmetics - Level II) > CNPJ (Corporate Tax Id Number), (with no dot or slash - eg. 02176615000107).

No, this compound does not refer to carbocysteine, but to a derivative of the reaction between the compound oxacetamide, carbocysteine and other amino acids derived from keratin.
