I have posted my concerns before about the BKT and how very dangerous this is for the stylist, the client and the clients( children and seniors in these salons that just happen to be there, not having the BKT.)
I am talking only of the underground Brazilian straightening system that is not FDA approved.

This product is embalming fluid, a very high percent of formaldehyde.
Salons in Brazil, Connecticut and I am sure other parts of the world are not going for the training in Florida, they are not spending the high cost to attend their training seminars and are not paying the high cost for the FDA approved products. They are using the underground Brazilian Straightening

This is very serious and very dangerous.
I am sure Leslie, Denise and other professional stylist are using the FDA approved products and have done their research, but their are so many that are not.

I have heard so many stories by my Brazil clients about the underground products that have been used for years in Brazil. Now it reached USA and everyone is so excited about it they just don't care about the danger, as long as they can afford it and their hair comes out beautiful.
Keep in mind that the same salons that did not do their research and use the best Thermal Reconditioning products for their clients are the same stylist that are going out and getting the underground products, and I'm sure without their knowledge.
There are sale reps that are calling salons and telling us that they have a product just as good as the products in Florida and how you don't need to be certified to use them. Stylist and clients have to do your research, this is not your typical perm.

In my opinion I would not use this product or trust it. I have been servicing Thermal Reconditioning since the year 2000 I have clients on their 12th-14th TR's, and as long as the client has not been bleaching out their hair we have had no problems. We can customize the thermal reconditioning products to give you a wave, a loser curl or the pin straight look.
I am qualified to do Thermals on top of relaxed hair because of my experience and knowledge with sodium hydroxide relaxers.
There is no reason to put myself or my staff through the dangers of using BKT.
Please as stylist and clients I can't stress enough do your research and make sure and have prove that the products that are being used are in fact the FDA approved products.

if you have any concerns or question please don't hesitate and write to me. If I don't get back to you right away, please know I will be vacation between August 9th-August 26th and I will return all emails when I return.
