Brazilian Blow Dry - worth it?

I've long ish hair, about 20 inches long. I dye it every 4/5 weeks as I dye my hair v dark brown and my natural hair colour is very light, so regrowth is very, very obvious! Problem is it's so bloody dry midlengths to ends, it's driving me insane. I love the Aussie Miracle 3 Min Conditioner which I use once a week, it makes my hair lovely but I can't use it every day as it's too much. The daily conditioners I've tried just make my hair feel lank.

Sooo I've been looking at Brazilian Blow Drys, but also stories about them having god knows what kinds of chemicals in them (formaldehyde?!). It's not perfect straightness I'm after, I'd just like my hair to not constantly be as dry as a camel's arsehole. I only straighten it about 2-3 times a week, not sure if maybe it's the change in weather. Anyone got any personal experiences having them done? Do you think it might help me and my Saharan straw hair?

Haven't tried the brazilian blow dry but I have very dry hair too and have found that Kerastase products are the only ones which stop it looking frazzled and as though I have split ends. I use the Volume Active spray which really conditions the ends and leaves them looking full and smooth. I also use the Elixir Ultime as a pre-shampoo treatment. It's a hair oil - you only need a very small amount per treatment. You can also use it before blow-drying if you prefer without rinsing it out. Other than that, L'Oreal Full Restore 5 shampoo and conditioner is excellent. I can't take anything too rich as my hair becomes lank but the L'Oreal stuff is perfect.
