Ask the FDA to Recall Toxic Hair Straighteners!
Testing has shown dangerous levels of formaldehyde in Brazilian Blowout products (up to 12%!), one of which was labeled "formaldehyde-free". Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen, and Canada, France, and Ireland have already issued advisories and are working to stop distribution of the product. Learn more here.
More than a year after reports surfaced about dangerous levels of formaldehyde in Brazilian Blowout and keratin hair straightening treatments, the products are still being used in salons across the U.S.
It's time the U.S. FDA took action to protect stylists and consumers from these hazardous products, too. Please ask the FDA to issue a voluntary recall of toxic hair straighteners!
We deserve safe products--don't you think?
