Myth: Keratin treatments are toxic
Truth: the keratin treatments that contain formaldehyde are the risky ones. also at home keratin treatments that say they are formaldehyde-free contain methylene glycol or formalin which are chemicals that when heated during the straightening process release formaldehyde. this has been known to cause anything from allergic reactions to cancer. the presence of formaldehyde in salon treatments is also tried to be hidden by manufacturers. for the at home treatments make sure the label is free of the F word including its other names such as formic aldehyde, methanol, methylene oxide, oxomethane, oxymethylene, paraform, and timonacic acid which is also known as thiazolidinecarboxylic acid.
A good product to use that is safe and free of all the ingredients just listed is the new keratin perfect 30 day hair smoothing treatment.
