This article is quite old in the world of BKT's. It is also a "scared straight" story.
There is little concern for the client while having this done. The only concern is for the stylists who preform the service all the time. It must be preformed in a well ventilated room. It is not a good idea to breathe in the fumes. That is why I use a source capture system AND an air purifier.
For a BKT to work, it HAS to have a "fixitive" to bond the keratin to the hair. When the fixatives are heated they produce a vapor that should not be breathed in. There is also a dust that many stylists are not aware of. My source capture system has a prefilter for the dust and there is A LOT of this dust in the filter.
As far as a client, no problem. The fixative is in a liquid state, when heated, some escapes into a gas... then turns into a solid on the hair. It does not turn back into a gas or liquid.
Think of it like a top coat on nail polish. The top coat does not turn back into a liquid when you get it wet. The transformation is permanent.
It can irritate or make your eyes water, and some people have experienced a sore throat, this is because the stylist has not taken the proper measures to keep the air clean during the process.
