OK .. SO.. Ive recently had the BKT and I have to agree with 99% of all others in saying that my hair has NEVER been this healthy and shiney and basically wash and wear. Ive done TR for 4 years and it has never given me silky hair like this.. I LOVE THIS TREATMENT!!!

WITH THAT BEING SAID...ALL OF US BKT CANIDATES REALLY NEED TO GET IT TOGETHER... THIS PROCESS CAN HAVE POTENTIALLY SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS THAT WE NEED TO FIND OUT ABOUT!!!!

I know most of us have just started doing this so its not like we're exposed regularly to the formaldehyde but this chemical has SERIOUS risks and I think it's important that we find medical professional opinions to determine whether the amount that we are exposed (and our stylists are exposed) could be fatal. I did some light research via GOOGLE and when speaking about the risks of inhaling formaldehyde there were terms such as "formaldehyde tumors" and "class 1 carcinegin" being thrown around. Almost every sight I looked at linked this chemical with cancer. It said that its a color-less, odorless toxin that tears the inner lining of the nose and causes respitory problems, lung cancer, etc etc. And this doesn't even take into account that the chemical is pretty much molded to our hair.

.. OK SO DONT FREAK OUT.. It was said somewhere on this discussion board (although not sure who) that BKT only has less than 2% formaldehyde (this is heresay). This could potentially not be a great risk to us... BUT WE REALLY SHOULD FIND OUT.

In speaking with my stylist he's been doing some research and we know:
A.) The FDA does not regulate this (it's not their department)
B.) The Board of hair-stylist certification people (cant remember the name he said)- know nothing about it
C.) It's not illegal

Also, I hear that some stylists are having people where small masks.... I'm no chemist but I thought those masks kept you from breathing "particles" ... The FUMES are a gas. I would think only a GAS MASK would prevent/help in this.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY INPUT ON THIS OR KNOW WHO WE CAN CONTACT FOR A PROFESSIONAL OPINION??
I went on the BKT official website and it gives you NO information... I couldn't even find a ingredients list of the stuff. I was thinking maybe the Center for Disease Control??

I dont want to seem hasty- and obviously my concern hasnt even kept me out of the chair to do this. It's just that if hundreds of women are getting in line for this- then we ought to know if we need to protect ourselves even better... or what the consequences/ risks are... if there are any.

IF ANYONE KNOWS ANYTHING .. PLEASE PROVIDE INPUT. I'd really like to know how we can get to the bottom of this!!!
