Brazilian Blowout Tries to Block Formaldehyde Test Results

Do You Want to Hear More About the Brazilian Blowout Tests?

By now, you've probably heard all about the Brazilian Blowout controversy, but the OSHA testing that found formaldehyde in the straightener is only the first salvo in what promises to be a much longer conflict. Brazilian Blowout's manufacturers have filed an injunction to prevent OSHA from disseminating its test results, saying they're "false" and "misleading" despite similar findings in tests by Health Canada. I don't want a company ruined for no reason, but it does seem unethical to limit public knowledge about a product. Do you want to hear more about these tests, or is it only fair to wait until the definitive results are in?

There are NO other beauty products that produce fumes containing high levels of formaldehyde. Please name one if you know? Nail polish contains formaldehyde, however you don’t breathe in any fumes. This is not about making a decision to have a beauty treatment or not. This product puts everyone’s health at risk. I don’t want to be sitting at a salon next to a person getting their hair straighten with HIGH levels of formaldehyde. I DON’T want to breathe in the fumes, do you? Bottom line it’s the government responsibility to protect our safety and when a product is putting my safety at risks, it’s time to do something about it!! Trust me I wish this was not the case, because I have wavy hair that I straighten every day. I wish there was a product out there that was safe and non-damaging to my hair.

The company is hiding something, why would OSHA lie and release misleading test results?? It just doesn't make sense! I think the public needs to be protected from products that are carcinogens and just because you are old enough doesn't mean anything!!!
