Subject: The truth about BKT
Date: August 9, 2007 at 6:20 am PST

I decided to do extensive research about the Brazilian Keratin Treatment since there has been so much controversy.

My findings are:

The woman who died did the procedure herself in her home with solutions that were not approved by Anvisa (Brazil FDA) Women obtain the formaldehyde mix it with creams and apply it to their hair. The percentage of formaldehyde used in these home concoctions is up to 37%. Add that to poor ventilation and a possible sensitivity, allergy, and the result is severe.
The BKT is not banned in Brazil. It is approved at 2% formaldehyde.
The problem is at that percentage, some hair does not become pin straight, usually thick ,very curly, healthy hair, so women try to make it stronger.

I did read that the use of formaldehyde does cause some problems if one is sensitive to it, like burning wattery eyes, itchy scalp. I read over and over again that it does not cause cancer! I would assume that the possibility of it causing cancer is as great as any product we use in the salon.

I would NEVER use this product if I thought it would harm my health. No amount of money would be worth the loss of my life.

The answer here is to be sure that whomever is applying this to your hair knows what they are doing and that the proper 2% product is used. That proper ventilation is available for the comfort of the client and stylist.

I hope I have finally put this to rest and that those who choose to post half truths will stop trying to upset and frighten everyone.
