For women who have kinky, coarse, frizzy or extremely curly hair, daily maintenance can be quite achore. Many of these women look longingly at other ladies who have silky, straight hair. In recent times, keratin treatments have become all the rage as women pay good money to have these treatments done to their hair. There is no question that keratin treatments work for most of these women, but they have some pretty high risk factors associated with them.
One of the most popular keratin treatments is called the Brazilian Blow Out. There has been a lot of press regarding this particular treatment because of potential dangers due to the product containing formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen, so there is no question as to why people would be concerned putting a toxic chemical on their head. Some women have reported pretty severe health consequences from using these formaldehyde-based treatments, including hair loss and damage.
Most of the straighteners on the market today are keratin-based. What is keratin? It’s a protein which is naturally located in your hair. Its job is to fill in any gaps in hair cuticle that have been damaged by drying or cracking. When mixed with formaldehyde and put on the hair, hairstylists then seal in the chemicals using a flatiron. The reason formaldehyde is used is to assist in keeping those molecules o fkeratin stuck together which ensures straightening of the hair.
Keratin treatments typically stay in the hair for about 2 to 3 months, maximum. The cost of having the treatment depends upon the length of the hair and the amount of time it will take to apply it. Formaldehyde can cause a variety of life-threatening problems. It’s listed as being a human carcinogen which can increase cancers of the throat and nose. Being exposed to high levels of formaldehyde can actually cause shortness of breath, fluid in the lungs, high heart rate and bronchitis. When someone is continually exposed to it, the person could have asthma-like symptoms, rashes and allergic reactions.
