Staying Fit and Fabulous During the Holiday Season

Brazilian Gloss - Tuesday, November 30, 2023

It’s the holiday season and we all know what that means….food food and more food. But as we indulge in all of the delicious treats we’re are about to encounter at family gatherings and holiday parties, stop and read this first.

Here are a few tips to enjoying the treats without the extra pounds.

  1. Avoid the sugar-packed cocktails and opt for red wine or vodka/soda. But make sure to have water in between each drink.
  2. Be selective when putting that turkey on your plate. Grab the white meat over the dark, it has less fat and the taste is no different.
  3. Eat pumpkin pie for dessert. It is fiber-filled and contains the least amount of calories of all pie options.
  4. If you see eggnog, RUN. Eggnog is loaded with fat and sugar. Treat yourself to warm cider instead.
  5. Take a short walk with family after the meal and enjoy the fresh air. You’ll feel better and burn extra calories!

Taylor Swift is Rockin' Her New Straight Locks & Bangin' It Out!

Brazilian Gloss - Wednesday, November 24, 2023


Taylor Swift has been the talk of town in Hollywood after she debuted a new hair style at the American Music Awards Sunday. It came as a shock to all of the Swift followers when she said goodbye to her signature curly locks and hello to a stick straight hairdo with bold bangs. The unrecognizable Swift made quite the statement with this new hair- an older, more mature Swift we haven’t seen yet. The sleeker, straighter look makes her highlights pop! And we love it!

What do you think of her new hairdo?

Holiday Party Outfits

Brazilian Gloss - Monday, November 22, 2023

It’s the holiday season again! That means it’s time to go shopping and find the perfect holiday party outfits. Try out these top holiday trends and be guaranteed to steal the spotlight!

SPARKLES! Pull this look off via the sequin blazer. It’s versatile and can be worn over a dress, cropped pants, or tights. Be brave and shine!

Your Signature LBD (Little Black Dress) but with detailing! Look for beading, pleating, or cutouts. The details are the perfect and only accessories needed to be a major knockout!

Bold Bracelets- If you decide to stick to your LBD without detailing, add a bold bracelet. It’s simple and a full-proof way to show you’re in the know on this season’s hot trend! 

Slouchy Trouser- This is the perfect way to update your outfit. Leave those skinny jeans in the closet and try on a pair of slouchy trousers. They work perfectly with a fitted blazer.  Look for a wool or pleated version a la Charlize Theron and wear them with a great set of heels.

Sweater Dress- This is the perfect selection for someone looking to be comfortable and sexy at the same time. Find one that is fitted and hugs your body. There are two ways to rock this look. Pair the long-sleeve sweater dress with black tights or a fitted belt. Both are great options!

And don’t forget the key to looking polished head to toe isn’t just about the clothes, but the hair too! Be sure to get glossed before you get the party started!

My Brazilian Gloss Treatment by Tammy Lee

Brazilian Gloss - Friday, November 19, 2023

November 10, 2010  was a big day for my hair. I finally got the Brazilian Gloss treatment done! It was an amazing experience with an easy and quick process that created a result that I absolutely love!

First, I want everyone to know what kind of hair I have. To give you a little background, mine is as virgin as virgin hair gets. I’m talking about no flat-ironing, hardly any blow drying, no use of creams, mousses or sprays, no perming, nothing. The biggest damage I ever inflicted on my locks was a wave perm in 7th grade which I regret so much. I have had a huge fear damage since then and my hair was literally dead for probably two years. But I’m in what, 14th grade now? I occasionally curl my hair but that happens maybe once every two weeks. It’s been a long time since I’ve done anything to my hair. Point is my hair was in pretty good shape already.

But my hair did have its flaws and the flaws that my hair had really did bother me. My ends were extremely dry and felt dead. The natural color of my hair started black at my roots and faded into a brown at my tips. I hated that. To me, my hair looked like I hadn’t gotten my hair colored brown again when in reality I’ve never colored my hair in my life. At my tips, my hair the natural shine and lacquer was nonexistent. My tips were basically extremely damaged and held a lot of frizz and tangle. I guess you can say the change I really wanted to see after the Brazilian Gloss treatment was the end area of my hair strands.

When I was told I was getting the treatment done I was ecstatic! I started out by shampooing my hair twice to take out impurities and excess oil. My hair smelled so good already. Then I had my hair blessed with the gloss and blow dried then flat-ironed to seal the gloss into my strands. To be completely honest, this is the hardest part of the process. For the stylist, blow drying the entire head of hair, for the client, just sitting there waiting for the next step. Right after the flat-ironing is complete, I washed my hair then applied the masque and voila! The wait was definitely worth the end results!

I was so surprised. I really wasn’t expecting much because my hair is virgin. But now my hair finally has shine from root to tip. My hair has more density and body which I really wanted and needed! My hair is softer and smoother to the touch and view and the color is completely consistent. As an intern, the results I’ve been tweeting about, Facebooking about, and blogging about now finally mean something to me.

The Brazilian Gloss experience I had was amazing! I love my hair so much and I cannot recommend or praise about it enough! Brazilian Gloss is love!

The Causes of Damaged Hair and the Best Solutions to Fix Damaged Hair

Brazilian Gloss - Monday, November 01, 2023

There are many different causes for damaged hair and Brazilian Gloss is here to break it down for you. We hope you ultimately figure out what may be the specific cause of damage for you and how to help you get rid of it!

First of all, damaged hair must be dealt with at the root. The most important location for curing damaged hair is the root because it is the starting point for hair’s growth.

The hair is composed of three layers. Starting from the innermost layer is the medulla, the cortex and then the cuticle. The cortex is the strongest and most dense layer of a hair strand. However, if you want to get a real solution from damaged hair, you need to repair your hair all the way to the strand’s medulla.

 One of the most common causes for damaged hair is that the hair is chemically treated. Examples of this kind of harsh damage is bleach, color treatments, perms or relaxers. Chemically treated hair is so harmful because it ruins the health of the cuticle and destroys the strength of the protein bonds.

 Another common cause for damaged hair is heat damage. Examples of this kind of damage is use of blow dryers, curlers, flat irons or straighteners frequently throughout the week. Using a heating tool does create great results after use, but it is very unforgiving because it literally fries the proteins and creates split ends.

 The last cause of damaged hair is physically related. The over-grooming of hair or the use of a rough brush can ruin the structure of the protein. In addition, sun exposure can be extremely harmful to hair because chemically processed hair does not act well with ultraviolet rays. The sun can also cause the hair’s protein bonds to weaken.

To help battle against your damaged hair, it is important to know the source of your damaged hair. Once you know the source, change up your routine or use hair repair products. Always choose the right tools and make sure to moisturize! 

*GLOSS TIP* For a once-a-week damaged hair treatment, try Coco de Soleil Hair Masque. This ultra-hydrating hair masque conditions the hair so it regains natural shine, reduces frizz and feels so smooth and soft you can run your hand through it without a snag or tangle. 

Sometimes shampooing your hair too much can take away essential oils.

*GLOSS TIP* In order to keep your hair full of nutrients and essential oils, use shampoo that is sodium chloride and paraben free. This way, you can get a nice squeeky clean feel WITHOUT stripping away all the good stuff. Try using Coco de Soleil High-Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner. (They are also highly enriched in keratin to create that shiny smooth effect you thought only celebrities could achieve!) 

 Other times you can use more conditioner or for longer. Even eating foods with good, fatty acids will moisturize your hair such as salmon or flaxseed oil. It’s all about being aware of what damage your doing to your hair and taking action to prevent it in the future.
