Have you always wanted a straightening treatment? Sorry, but dream no more. Brazilian Blowout, the hair straightening company, is under review by the US Congress. Members of the US Congress sent a letter to the FDA asking the agency to issue a voluntary recall for Brazilian Blowout products and other brands that have high levels of formaldehyde.
In the letter, it states:
It is clear that the FDA needs to take decisive action. An investigation by the Environmental Working Group revealed that FDA has received 47 complaints from salon workers and clients who experience adverse reactions and injuries (including hair loss, blisters, burning eyes, noses and throats headaches and vomiting) as the result of giving or receiving hair straightening treatments.
Tell us your thoughts.
