Formaldehyde Found in Brazilian Blowout?

The Oregon Health and Science University has issued a public health alert warning of high levels of formaldehyde in Brazilian Blowout.

According to reports, the popular hair-straightening product has been tested to contain as much as 10.6% Formaldehyde in it.

Carrot Top has GOT to be bumming.

Oregon’s Center for Research on Occupational and Environmental Toxicology (CROET) was contacted by a number of stylists expressing concern about health effects they report having experienced while using both of the hair formulations. The stylists complained of eye irritation, nose bleeds and difficulty breathing after they used the products. Via EmaxHealth

According to the report, if a product used in a workplace contains more than 0.1% formaldehyde, OSHA requires the manufacturer to list it and address safe work practices on the material safety data sheet accompanying the product. OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard requires employers to share this information with their potentially exposed employees through training.

So, what does this all mean? Should you stop using Brazilian Blowout? I would… at least until everyone figures out exactly what is going on.

I mean, sure, there still may be uses for the product in some funeral  homes at the moment, but putting that on your scalp COULD be a health hazard.

To be fair, the makers of Brazilian Blowout defended their product. A statement on the company’s website states, “At Brazilian Blowout, the safety of our products, stylists and consumers is our number one priority. We stand behind the integrity of our product, and affirm that our professional solution is indeed formaldehyde-free.”

Stay tuned and curly haired.
