"See The Secret Behind The Expensive Brazilian Hair You Like Buying" (Details)

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that Brazilian blowouts and other hair-smoothing products can cause serious side effects.

A Brazilian blowout can be harmful to your health and hair. One of its main ingredients is a known cancer-causing chemical, formaldehyde. Brazilian blowouts and other smoothing treatments also contain other chemicals that can cause side effects and allergic reactions.

Keratin treatments typically contain a chemical called formaldehyde. The American Cancer Society warns that formaldehyde is a known carcinogen. This means that it may cause cancer or help cancer to grow.

But there's a hidden dark side to this popular hair smoothing treatment. The Food and Drug Administration warns that Brazilian Blowout formulas and other similar chemical hair straightening products can release chemicals damaging to your health, the health of your hair and the health of the salon employees as well. 

Over the past couple of years, natural hair has been the big trend among African-American women. Many have gone through the drastic cutting of the hair, also known as the “big chop,” while some have just stopped getting chemical processes like relaxers.

But there are many misconceptions and much misleading information about the pros and cons of being relaxed compared to being natural. 

Natural hair has gained popularity in the black community in recent years. For decades, many black women looked to harsh chemicals to straighten their hair. But these days, an increasing number of black women are omitting the chemicals in favor of a more natural approach to hair care. 

Symptoms are more common in stylists and other people working with these treatments.

Many of these hairs are from long-haired people. Anything you lack when you wash, clean your hair and peel. In a few years, they've got more fur and then sell it to people who want it. Every hair is also harvested by people who voluntarily shave or cut their hair on demand. This is popular in India in particular.

After the hair is collected, they are sorted and processed chemically in a factory. This makes the hair silky and straight. But keep in mind that not everyone is chemically produced. These are chemically unprocessed from a single donor.
