Having uncomplying hair has always been a problem for me. Last summer, I've heard a lot of good reviews about the Brazilian Blowout, and despite rumors of it being potentially dangerous, I proceeded with the treatment. There's no wonder why recently FDA recently deemed the blowout unsafe: each treatment contains a poisonous chemical (formaldehyde) that "reacts with the mucous membranes lining the respiratory tract and the eyes," causing the following:
- blurred vision
- eye irritation
- burning sensation
- sore throat
- chest pain
What was my experience like?
Well, let's say throughout the 2 hour span of being exposed with the chemicals of the treatment, I had symptoms 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10.
Unfortunately, there has been no indication of recalling the treatment, which means that awareness is the only way to keep the potential customers from this harmful treatment.
Have you ever had the Brazilian Blowout? What hair treatments have given you bad symptoms?
