Hi Abby
Yes, Coppola Keratin contains forms of aldehyde. In other words its a derivative of formaldehyde. I'm going to let you in on a little secret. The formaldehyde in these products is not a concern for me. What concerns me is the effect of a 450 degree iron on any of the chemiclas in the brazilan keratin treatment.

You see, these treatments contain perfumes, silicones, preservatives, forms of aldehydes like vanillin (which is a food preservative) and the iron is burning them and causing toxic smoke. 450 degrees on anything is going to cause toxic smoke. So I have to protect myself and the client by working in a special environment. I don't want to affect everyone in the salon. I have special filters and ventilation in the salon and I have my own room where I do the treatments.

If the stylist doesn't protect themselves or the client shame on them. I do about 10 BKTs a week. Some of them are japanese keratin treatments for extremely curly hair when the client wants the straightness of the japanese hair straightener and the natural feeling of the Brazilin Keratin Treatment. I use all the products out there because clients ask for them by name.

The dryness from coppola Keratin treatment occurs because the irons are to hot and the ingredients are not moisturizing enough. Marcia Teixeira has an extreme deffrizzing formula that works well on course frizzy hair but it leaves a residue that is too heavy for most clients. Rejuvenol makes a BKT that contains collagen as well as keratin. It leaves the hair shiny swingy without the residue feeling. Agi Maxx has a product with a higher concentration of formaldehyde for extreme defrizzing and it has a neutralizer that allows the client to shampoo in 24 hours. Yes, I know, asking for more formaldehyde is like asking for extra MSG when you go to the chinese restaurant but it works well.LOL
