Hi I am scheduled to have the Global Keratin tomorrow morning! The salon is in Sarasota; they tested two other brands which had formaldyhde or its derivative and settled on Global Keratin which has no formaldyhde or derivative. Did the product they used on you have Formaldyhde or were you told it didn't?

Hi i want to get the treatment done but i am 5 months pregnant and from some of these comments you all are scaring me. I am guessing it's probably not a good idea right now so i will have to wait til i have the baby...also can you buy the treatment instead of going to the salon?

Does anyone have the phone number for Annabelle's on Essex St in NYC? It's not listed in 411.

Also, if you don't blow your hair, how does it come out?

From what I have been told copola treatment is made from animal protein. Not sure what that includes but it doesn't sound what I really want on my hair. American Cultures simply straight is made from keratin from human hair.

I had it today very expensive and you cannot was your hair for three days that is hard, no products, no pinning up no sunglasses on the head. My hair is soft and there was hardly any odor when we did it and none now. I can see a improvement on my condition and on the color it looks so much better. I hopw it works, I would have like to avoided my band are and did the rest but I get it would get uneven.

From what I have been told he wont give the information out because he doesn't want people to know that it is made with animal protein -- horse hair, hooves, etc.

I'm just curious what do clients do when they get home and have to hold their baby, lay next to their husband or hold a child after they get The Brazilian Straightening Treatment.
I found some interesting information while doing research on the Brazilian Straightening.
Presumably, the hairstylist & the client are wearing masks to protect from the fumes.
Stylist are suggesting to the clients that using air purifiers, expensive fume extractor and do the process in a well ventilated room is making it safe to have this straightening and safe for their stylist to use day in and day out.
Ok, but what happens when you leave the salon and you can't wash your hair for a couple of days.
Yes, the client is told that "it doesn't touch the scalp, it doesn't get on the skin, it won't seep into your pores.
But, what happens when you are laying your head on the same pillow every night, breathing the product into your lungs!!
You lay on your back, where is your hair?
You lay on your stomach where is your face?
Where is your new born's face when you are burping him?
Where is your child's face when you are hugging him!!
Remember when the product "wears off", in the course of the following 3 - 5 months it returns to its vapor state. As it does this, the client, as well as all who are close by are inhaling the fumes on a daily basis it's the accumulative exposure that is the danger.
Heat and moderate humidity levels hastens the breakdown and release the chemical even after treatment.
Since formaldehyde can bond and stick around awhile, meaning it would be hard to wash out in a few shampoos, there are concerns that the chemical could accumulate on the hair over time and would be re-released with each wash and dry.
So, long term use of the straightening method would also mean long term exposure, and accumulation on the hair
Understand that there is 2% formaldehyde volume in the Brazilian Straightening and that is 10 times the amount considered to be safe (.02%) in Cosmetics, nail polish and daily cleaning agents.
I have heard once :
Our insurance wouldn't cover BKT if it wasn't FDA approved.
As a salon owner, a insurance company has never asked me about products that I use, or about a FDA approval. Even the health department that comes into my salon regularly has never asked me about product ingredients.
The goo used in the Brazilian method is made of keratin protein and formaldehyde—you know, the stuff used to embalm bodies
So what's wrong with it? Its major ingredient, and why it smells so bad, is formaldehyde, which is classified as a human carcinogen by the International Agency on research for Cancer, part of the World Health Organization. In short, it can cause cancer. 2% is very high and over time very dangerous!!
Once the Brazilian straightening solution is painted on dry hair, the stylist flatirons the hair, releasing vapors into the air.
With repeated inhalation at higher levels, it is associated with nasal and brain cancer, and possibly leukemia, according to the National Cancer Institute. So think about what you and your family are breathing in every time you flat iron your hair.

Has anyone ever heard of Rejuvenol BKT? Is it safe? What is the % of formaldehyde? I heard it was within the FDA limits.

I am a haircolorist in Long Island,NY and recently attended the IBS show. I wanted to gather as much info on this treatment and the pro and cons of the different brands and ingredients. I was lucky enough to stop at the Marci Texeira booth and actually had the treatment done myself. So far I am absolutely thrilled w/the results. I have naturally curly hair with the bottom 4 inches an old relaxer and my hair is amazing. NO FRIZZ! Much looser curl but not pin straight which is exactly what I wanted. I have definatly made my choice in which product to use on my clients!

I have curly frizzy hair. Had the Coppola Keratin treatment done in Mid March. Love it. Really reduces the frizz factor. Has cut my hair time in half. Am going to the Carribean May 29th. Is it safe to have treatment done again in under 3 months? Is it true that the results get even better with repeated treatments? Please advise

I did it, I had the Coppola Straightening done today at Richard Salon on Long Island after reading about them on this site. It feels a bit gooey at the moment, but she said to wait out the 3-4 days and come back for in a blow out. I will post the results after..

I just had this done at a salon in Basking Ridge, NJ. IT was the Coppola treatment. I will say that the girl even admitted her eyes tear and sometimes she cries and it gets to her throat yet she does not wear a mask. This does NOT sound safe at all. I should have done more research on it! MOreso, they are exposing all in the salon to this. I do NOT believe Coppola is formaldahyde free as even when my hair got rained on there was this toxicity to the smell. I am concerned Coppola IS NOT SAFE?!?

to anyone thinking of getting the brazilian: the marcia works BECUASE of the formaldahyde. I had the coppola done and it is a waste of time and money. but good luck finding someone who will do the marcia. the hair stylists love the new coppola one. too bad it is soooo infective.
