This is scary. I found this article in Time magazine about the dangers of getting a Brazilian Blowout. Apparently, high (and potentially dangerous) levels of formaldehyde were discovered by U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in salons using “some hair smoothing and straightening products, including the Brazilian Blowout brand. (Formaldehyde helps bind keratin to hair, straightening it.)” According to the article, several startling reactions were reported by both clients and salon staff, including hair loss, allergic reactions, nosebleeds, eye irritations to the release of formaldehyde by these products. Brazilian Blowout, and other similar products, have already been pulled off the shelves in Canada!
