Summary: An hairstylist in Oregon experienced, eye irritation, shortness of breath, and nosebleeds while using the Brazilian Blowout treatment. Therefore it is now considered banned. In Brazil there is a popular keratin-based hair- straightening treatment that makes your hair straight and smooth for months. But it contains toxic carcinogen formaldehyde that is 6.3-10.6% levels of formaldehyde. The exposure to formaldehyde can cause to nose and throat cancer and leukemia. As well as burning sensation in eyes and throats, loss of smell, and shortness of breath.
Reflection: After this article, I was surprise people go through this treatment daily and they it's not banned yet. A lot of health issues can be cause by doing this hair treatment because you're prone to be diagnosed with cancer with this treatment for the formaldehyde. We can help educate the people who go to the salons and say they're at their own risk when they receive this treatment. OR help educate the hair stylist about what can happen with the exposure of this treatment.
