Keratin Straightening Treatment Causing Cancer?

Question by J: Keratin straightening treatment causing cancer?
Can the Keratin straightening treatment cause cancer if used twice? I used 4-EVER SMOOTH BRAZILIAN KERATIN TREATMENT. I was told it was 100% safe and natural. So I didn’t think about wearing gloves when applying it since I usually apply hair dyes with bare hands. I used it twice in 1 week the 2nd time after the 4 days were up because I wanted straight hair and it was not working. The 2nd time I had an opened wound and it got into it which hurt a lot it also hurt my eyes (fumes) thats when I got suspicious that it was not chemical free. I looked it up and saw it did have formaldehyde. So now I am worried 🙁

Go to the FDA website & type in permanent or relaxers so you understand what are the side effects.

Keratin are not approved by the FDA. Visit their website & search for it in their web. If you’re thinking about the Brazilian treatment, there’s a danger about using formaldehyde, a chemical that causes cancer. The FDA does not restrict the use of that chemical in cosmetics.

Here’s the newest news:
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently seized tens of thousands of bottles of “Rio” hair relaxer products after determining they can cause severe hair loss or turn hair green.

The FDA last month warned consumers not to use “Rio Hair Naturalizer Systems,” a product imported from Brazil and sold through television infomercials by World Rio Corp. of Los Angeles.

The official complaints against hair straightening products range from serious hair breakage and hair damage to serious scalp burns that may require an emergency room visit.
