Proper precautions would involve is if you can smell anything. Therefore in case you can… after that, you can probably do better. Chemical relaxing is permanent, it seems like they midly relax your hair. So here’s a question. How do they bring the pH back down? That relaxes the hair, no? Normally, what about the sodium hydroxide aka lye? It’s the active ingredient in most ethnic hair straightners. In this case, in my opinion the NaOH is just there to buffer the product to the correct pH, and without it the product should be identical effect, You’re right that lye can be/has been used to relax curly hair. As if you don’t it could indeed be dangerous. Use the gloves, use proper ventilation, and take other precautions to minimize exposure when you use the product. Ok, and now one of the most important parts. People know to take precautions because The whole point is to describe the contents accurately. Why? Let me tell you something. Why, when the company went to such great pains to say it was safe? Considering the above said. I am sure that the BB Acai solution said it had no formaldehyde and similar harsh chemicals. You’re confident that each stylist should use gloves and be careful not to get the solution on the skin.
So Heat protecting properties are really up to the individual.
The products themselves do not appear to provide any kind of thermal protection, obviously by using this equipment less the hair will experience less damage in the course of the effective time of the treatment.
Most brands claim the treatments will reduce thermal damage to the hair following the service, however as far as I can tell it is being that the reduced drying time and reduced need for heated tools. It worked like a miracle on my very curly hair. My stylist is very cautious about using the product only with significant ventilation. Notice that why cant I get the hair treatment I prefer, I tally agreewe should have the right to ‘pick our poison’ in that I can smoke cigarettes if I need to. She also applies it quickly. Generally, I had the original BB treatment done twice in the last year. I should continue to get it done. I know sticker shock happens on retail goods but not all shampoos are identical.
When a manufacture produces a product it usually has a reason to use their complete line.
If you are spending $ 350 so another $ 75 seems excessive.
Try a mini BB 46 weeks after your initial BB to refresh and get NEW growth. With that said, brazilian Blowout, the gold bottles, is designed to use their shampoo and masque at least once a week. Be careful of hidden ingredients from other brands that strip the hair. Now look. Respect gonna be given to those who choose not to do this service and spare their clients potential health problems! Known bUT SPARE THE OTHERS who choose not to! Let me tell you something. Separate days for just BB should be an ideal start! Now pay attention please. You are right about the ‘smoking’ comparison.The real problem is in a salon setting for the stylists who choose not to do this they are stuck next someone who does.THAT is WRONG.
I had a BB treatment yesterday and so far, am thrilled with the results.
Are there more economical alternatives?
I was advised to buy the official BB acai shampoo, conditioner and a treatment product but due to cost I postponed buying it until I’ve done more research. Is it really necessary to use the BB aftercare products? I have had the BB. I just had my 2nd one and while the results are similar, my hair isn’t nearly as sleek, soft straight as the original formula. I’m planning to assume it won’t last 16 weeks this time. Instead lasted 16 weeks which is well over the 12 weeks that it was supposed to last, it did not wash out after a few shampoos.
To Perry Romanowski -you are on the basis of a number of the comments above I can not see any reason to think the BB Zero provides many benefits whatsoever, and I my be surprised if there are any hardcore scientific studies of BB Zero’s effect on hair proteins.
It’s up for grabs, maybe a hair stylist could answer this question better. With that said, it seems to me that there must be a chemical reaction occurring between hair and ingredients in BB, otherwise the results can’t last. Basically the aftercare products seem to do something that prevents the reversal of said chemical reaction. I wish I had found this site before I wasted the money on a BB Zero.
I’ve had the treatment about a month…I guess I’m planning to just give up and go back to using my normal ‘leave in’ conditioner regardless of what’s in it so I can look normal without using the flatiron.
I bought it heavily discounted from one of those Groupon/Daily Deal type sites.
Basically the texture is nowhere near silky and shiny like they claim it will be, while I admit my hair dries faster and is easier to flat iron. Because of the restrictions on hair care products, By the way I can’t even put anything in it to make the curls looks nice. I just started using a product called Reallisse by Zerran. Just search it on the web. This is the case. Did you know that a smoothing system that is vegan and uses corn, wheat and oat proteins. With that said, it has just launched in Canada. Needless to say, it has a sister product called Reform which is a permanent straighting system.
I did it to a co worker and myself and in my opinion it’s great.
I never used BB or any other because of all the negative Hype.
I can not compare it to BB or BB zero or any other keratin treatments but glad that it’s not linked to all the negative problems. Hope this helps. Generally, you talk about averages but what are you preparing to do when so that makes you dangerous, whatever your motive is. Anyway, betcha it happens especially with people like you continuing to tell them that there’s no way it might be hazardous.
I did have the original bb and it worked really well.
The stylist was coughing and her eyes irritated by the end of the treatment.
I was glad there was a bb zero and I tried. Essentially, I was charged 300 dollars and it was a waste of time and money. Oftentimes the company is lying saying that it delivers quite similar results. Salon Changing times in Tillicum mall had offered to call the company. BB zero does not work. Therefore, the salon shouldn’t offer that product!! Actually, they did my highlights for free after a few days but I am still waiting to hear from the owner as they can not return the money. That’s right! I’m certainly don’t have the qualifications to make a judgment about public health concerns, Oooh, I can only offer my opinion. From my limited understanding, in my opinion other ‘formaldehydecontaining’ hair products are regularly used in it’s essential to know which products contain formaldehyde so you can take extra special precautions that you wouldn’t otherwise.
That stuff burned my nose and throat so if you feel you should do it, you shouldreally wear a mask to protect your nose and throat. Then again, I worry a lot now about throat for awhile being that my throat still becomes sore at times and when the doctor did a routine check the other day she mentioned how redish it was inside my nose. It had been 8 months since I had BB and my scalp still has sores that are finally going away and a lot hair!!
I’ve been taking all kinds of vitamins to try and keep my hair. So a week later I went back to the doctor cause the pain was unbearable. Please don’t do this or if you know of something that will make or Know what, I got a sore throat that lasted 7 weeks. I also had nose bleeds. As a result, will never ever do the BB again, I’m almost sure I am taking Biotin and fish oil, HoShumon and Biosil and Vitamin I should love to have the silky smooth hair. On p of this, I guess its like smoking some are planning to do it By the way I get that those of us with unruly. Coarse hair have found a product that gives us beautiful hair.
I will also continue to use BB on my own hair outside when there’s a slight breeze, By the way I will lok.
To be honest I can’t To be honest I am of coarse just a laymen. Besides, does contain frizz somewhat, and I have only tried it on finer hair, I’m pretty sure I have tried Kera Spa, leaves natural curl. I am so torn, what happens if down the road it’s for a while period of long long time effects of BB are detrimental? Loads of information can be found on the internet. I am trying other products and have not found one to be nearly what BB is, I cant even say having a wind tunnel fan blowing directly at you will be safe. I did use this product without gloves, To be honest I was unaware at the time that it was, well not good for you all in all, however I did use it after intending to a class up in Sioux Falls, the reps there were adamant about not having to use glove and proper ventilation is all that is needed, we questioned them again and again, and the woman do the BB, on one of our salon owners insisted she did a couple of these a day, I don’t think so.
I have to say my hands were like sand paper when I got done, my throat burned as did my eyes. I am no chemist but I have used this product a few times with a EPA approved vent system, It’s not good, I for any longer it requires to get out of your system, or does it ever? Therefore the last time I had Coppola done I could smell it, that never happened before, and after a while had intense scalp itching and weird hair. I think that results are so variable according to the type and condition of one’s hair that comparisons are very difficult. I think that if the Zero doesn’t work my stylist will redo with original BB. On p of this, she uses it and well as her stylist sister and they have used ti on numerous clients. Yech. I’m using Wen now and happy with it. Known my stylist has used Coppola, BB and BB Zero and feels that Zero leaves more body in the hair with more shine and lasts about similar timespan as BB.
I will rahter have NO hair than hair that isn’t helped in one of these ways.
Just has the BB Zero done yesterday.
I was really in for any longer being that for ages naturally blonde hair is a mess without some treatment. I had my hair japanese straightened three times over the course of two years, so had coppola done three times over a year with perfect results. Besides, bTW I detest the follow up shampoos, either coppola or BB. Since heat could drive the expulsion of the formaldehyde linking gether hair amino acids, -and it’s just speculation -I will imagine that more frequent heating of BBtreated hair should result in a shorter lifetime of the treatment effects. Notice, the original BB may seem to protect hair from heat styling by decreasing the appearance of flaws just like split ends and frizziness -these flaws are often used synonymously with damaged. I really look for to ask some women. You have pin straight hair for a few months/ yrs but is it worth risking your health and possibly loosing your hair in the end because of these harsh chems + high heat?
It contains cysteine, that I believe is also a component of Garnier’s Sleek and Shine Blow Dry Perfector.
Not sure how permanent an effect you’d ‘haveyou’ may disrupt some disulfide bonds in the hair fiber temporarily.
I imagine the new formula’s smell won’t be pleasant if cysteine’s present in any appreciable quantity. With that said, thanks for striving to set the record straight. On p of this, it just BLOWS MY MIND -even with all the scientific evidence to the contrary. Anyways, how can people believe anything they say after it had been proven that everything else they said was untrue? Now this new set of marketing to continue the lying. Our Anevolve Control 1 and Control 2 are formaldehyde based and we SAY SO, and train stylists how to use it properly and give full disclosure. Just think for a moment. I was battling with stylists all across the country who still seek for to BELIEVE that BB is formaldehyde for awhile being that they say on their bottle and insist that they are truthful, as the manufacturer of a line of hair products. I’m sure you heard about this. I mean these stylists are indignant -I will almost swear they work as reps for BB.
Thank you for this wonderful information. Is not the rule rather than the exception in this country. Lab fees should run you about $ 40 per sample and I’d suggest that you collect 4 samples per blow out. I hope this information is useful. Lots of information can be found on the web. Ultimately, the measured formaldehyde exposure on your stylists will determine the extent your salon will need to comply with OSHA’s formaldehyde standard. There’s lots of variability in chemical use, number of blow outs per shift, flat iron temperature, and ventilation. Nevertheless, for a while being that some data collected at unknown locations under unknown conditions was posted, doesn’t mean that you’re free and clear. Keep reading! For a while being that each salon and stylist is unique. OSHA has published a really good hazard alert to inform you of your employer requirements. Basically a board certified industrial hygienist, I’m almost sure I would strongly recommend that you seek technical assistance to assess your worksites, as a former OSHA Compliance Officer. If you need, enable you to know how it goes, when I get the treatment I will.
We have a link for the MSDS form for the F450 AFST -Should pop up as a.pdf. I hope this helps! I wasn’t sure if so it’s also something that can cause internal damage as well, it seems most complaints are from breathing the air? So it is amongst the most thorough posts I’ve popular on this topic, that I am thankful for. I’m curious if anyone knows the answer to this. Into the bloodstream, bB treatment only emit a dangerous gas in the air throughout the drying/straightening process, or is it also absorbed through the scalp? I had the first BB treatment twice and really liked it. Besides, just attempting to learn the consequences, disappointed to find the company had lied about the formaldehyde.
How amazing to find an organometallic chemist.
I’m also glad to see you are not engaging in the chemophobia that a few of the blogosphere is with regards to BB.
I suffered through a chem class with the pioneers of organometallics at Cornell. Glad to see you are having more success. Look it up for yourself. It’s the salon type where you would never expect to find a Keratin Treatment. I’m pretty sure I just thought that I should let you guys know about it. Although, they promised on their website that Surely it’s formaldehyde and keratin free… lots of products have promised this. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… F450 Amino Fusion by Thermafuse. I looked it up and was excited to find many blogs about it containing before and after pictures… a certain amount these pics astounded me. I contacted them and they ld me the name of the product. I found the most wonderful little salon that really tries to focus on health and wellness. They try to be organic and all natural in their products. Now let me tell you something. They had something different. Of course, I’ll be going back to using a true Japanese process that is safer amd does not have very similar aftereffects and potential health risks.
Actually the burning did not subside, unlike the first time.
My hair was manageable for almost 12 weeks.
My scalp had a bad burning sensation as the product was applied. Anyway, the burning stopped when the product was rinsed out and my hair conditioned. Now look. I was sorry that I could not complete the for any longer being that I wanted to retain very similar results as the first treatment. BB was great the first time. I asked that the product be rinsed out and just got my hair cut instead. Usually, I could not complete a second treatment. I resent the idea that women are unable to make an assessment of their own hair as they are blinded by the hype.
Perry, regardless of the safety of the BB, I just look for to dispel some amount of your ideas about the effectiveness of the BB.
I can assure you that we are not all ditzy and clueless, as a ‘scientificallyminded’ person.
Some women may just love the fact that they can look groomed / professional without having to waste time in the morning styling their hair. While being a chemist myself, I’m quite sure I don’t cringe at the words chemical or chemical reaction, when I say most of us are aware that there is a chemical reaction with your hair I mean that with neutral connotations. Therefore, side note to all. Further more if you guys are getting running noses or itchy eyes and suchlike your performing the treatment WRONG! For example, I’d you read instruction it suggest that the hair be 75 percent dry or 50 with zero and not to do this with a blow dryer only use a wel and bloat well also this stops from over saturation of product hence why u should never use more after that, 2 caps fulls now if u do the treatment incorrectly and dry the hair a 100 percent and apply it on dry hair ur definitely using almost any procedure u do on a client equates to about 3 or 4 by the book treatments thats 1200 dollars your throwing it away by not folling directions and the hair needs to have water in hair as a proper catalyst for the treatment I’m sorry all you stylist are idiots do your research and know what your performing!
Interesting, thanks for those points! Now I’m confused about how they avoid greasylooking hair -if just a few shampooings will neutralize the Blowout’s effects, enough people surely is happy with the original product’s results to maintain the hype. Used BB 3 times and hereupon noticed severe alopecia… 3 huge bald spots… yes I was stressed at the time but that combination may are my demise … at any rate a product with that amount of toxicity. I did the Zerran … ha! Therefore, aFTER home shampoo that claims it works. I am a client who used ‘pre Zero’ with perfect results, consequently had it redone with Zero two weeks ago. Brazilian Blowout Zero does not work! Whenever acknowledging that they have since learned that look, there’s a real poser with the new formula, they kindly agreed to redo it this morning. It was a tal waste of everyone’s ‘timethe’ lack of results were immediately obvious to me and my hair dresser. Normally, the difference is night and day. Oftentimes I worry about the formaldehyde, that is why I will continue to monitor this debate and may not choose to do this again in the ‘future but’ one of the problems I know for sure. Fact, most of us know that there is no reason to waste time and money on the new version, a product that delivers absolutely Zero value, the original product works.
Thank you for the quote above To clarify.
Not the chemical agents, I am taught.’ in other words, the proteins and botanical smoothers.
Nobody has claimed the aftercare products contain a bonding agent, and the ingredients of every are listed on the bottle, as is mandated for ‘homeuse’ products. I tried the BB Zero a few times and And so it’s not working. Therefore, how disappointing! Basically, I actually bought a salon sized bottle from a stylist online. I did not seek for to use those anymore since they emit the formaldehyde when flat ironing. I have used regular BB and on p of that Simply Smooth keratin treatment which both worked better. This is the case. For me, I eat/be as healthy as I possibly can.
We all pick our poisons don’t we?
I will continue for ages being that it’s the next best beauty enhancement since the wheel.
I use Coppola and do it myself. With the straight effect, what really should the result be. With a shampoo/ or condtioner with methylene glycol. Consequently the service of Brazilian done the next day. Will the amino acids/ proteins. Without the traces methylene glycol gasses escaping, and reducing the safety risk. That’s right! You must at least use another high quality, sulfatefree line, if you opt not to use the Brazilian Blowout Acai line.
Each time you use the Acai Hair Care you’re helping to enhance and deposit a bit more of that protective layer to keep the cuticle smooth and shiny, jordana explains that the Acai line contains quite a few of the active ingredients that are in the Brazilian Blowout treatment itself.
I just seek for to know, Should I still be doing BB on my clients or not?
She was having sinus problems and wonders if this induced plenty of problems that she has had, except day a client that I have done BB 4 times does not seek for me to use it on her again. I am not sure what I must do. For instance, I am a breast cancer survivor am I risking my health doing this. I have really loved the results and so have my clients but am I risking their health and mine? I have not had any problems myself while doing BB on clients. And therefore the Zero doesn’t work for me. Original is amazing and leaves my hair almost straight for about 3 months at a time. Let me tell you something. I have used both original BB and the Zero.
Not as curly as I know it’s naturally, even after 4 months, my hair is very wavy.
I had the treatment on Friday and did not wash my hair until Sunday afternoon and my hair was identical condition as it was prior after one washing.
I went back to my salon and my Stylist noticed that it did not take so they applied a BB Mask, supposed to seal the BB treatment?? I recently had the BB Zero treatment and it did not take to my hair. I was able to blow dry my hair in 10 -15mins or 45 mins, Previously I have had two BB treatments which have worked really well on my hair and lasted 3 -4 months. That is interesting right? I will follow up with them next week. Does anyone have any information as to this product’s safety? I don’t seek for to risk my health, Know what, I would like to use a hair smoothing product. Goupon posted an extremely discounted Brazilian Blowout Zero at a salon in my area. I have read plenty of the readers comments about a vegan formula that does not contain formaldehyde and similar harsh chemicals, called RealLisse, produced by a company called Zerran.
I can not find much information/research/safety information about this product, only what appears to be a PR release on a few different websites.
I did some further research to make sure if it is a product I should feel comfortable using and I came across this blog.
I became interested in it when I realized that this product does not contain formaldehyde, as the original formula does, that I have heard very much controversy about. Did you know that the controversy beyond doubt is about the quantity, both theoretical and measured, in my opinion everyone is now in agreement that formaldehyde can/is released when the original product is used. Whenever keeping in mind that they tested air levels of formaldehyde under controlled settings that reasonably give them lower formaldehyde readouts than here’s Oregon OSHA’s cover it. Thanks Denise. On p of this, aqueous formaldehyde, aka formalin, aka methylene glycol is how you get formaldehyde in a bottle without having to pressurize it and deal with it as a gas!
Just discovered your blog, nice work.
Yielding formaldehyde, it will be considered to contain formaldehyde for public health concerns, if use of the original formula require heating to gain blowout results. Is not aqueous formaldehyde pretty much methylene glycol, it was awhile since I was a practicing chemist. Then again, in regards to effectiveness, I actually will report back to enable you to all know how it holds up. Actually I cannot offer for a while because being since the cancer risks, I have not received the original BBO. Basically, I will enable you to know how BB Zero measures up to this product, I’m pretty sure I was extremely satisfied with the Coppola treatment. Of course So there’s much talk about products being not only formaldehydefree but free as a matter of fact, that kind of talk wipes out an entire functional group from consideration! Ah, here’s a story for another time. Glutaraldehyde wouldn’t be acceptable either, with that kind of talk. Generally, hmm, okay well, sometimes its just not that simple.
I would eat refined sugar foods ALL DAY LONG cuz it feels REALLY good.
If so and we followed the instinct logic.
I will NOT eat onions, cuz they burn the crap out of my eyes. Hi Joann I would actually concur with what bb said stylist dont realize that bb zero is less forgiving and the procedure is slightly different they must take 1/8 to 1/4 inch sections when applying and flat ironing wit the original it was biggers sections. So, now claiming the ZERO does identical is just false advertisement and Im feeling so that’s just one the twisted more info there putting out there. New ZERO from brazilianblowout does NOT give quite similar results.
As a stylist for 25yrs I have used and love the results of the original but very skeptical because of the company no actually coming out publicly to defend there selves.
Use your instinct, Therefore if something is irritating your throat, eyes therefore thats not right.
Ilove my hair with the brazilian and been doing them for 2 years but I am now stopping, its not worth your health and the company is a little not forth coming and I can’t trust that. Basically the treatment actually leaves your hair extremely silky, defrizzed and smooth. Straighteners are now superfluous. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… It dries smooth, if I leave my hair to ‘airdry’. Hair also takes 5 minutes for any longerer need to use a brush / nozzle or serum. First time I had it done and washed my hair, it felt like my hair had been transplanted with someone else’s! Then, leaving it to ‘air dry’ would result in a bird’s nest effect, before having BB. Anyone who has already used BB shan’t be satisfied with anything else.
So it’s dangerous especially to the stylist.
I have started using a product called Keragreen Smoothing Treatment.
You have to wear gloves the time, hey, do not breath the fumes!! Not me. Sadly, people love this treatment soooo much they are willing to poison themselves to get it. I choked when I did myself and had a racing heart, that summer I did alot of these treatments and had an unexplained wheeze. Not while Brazillian Blowout original solution, it works well on fine and blonde hair. This is where it starts getting very entertaining. Whenever doing redos, I have wasted money. Sigh, Know what guys, I figured I must chime in, I’m pretty sure I got the BB zero for myself to do in the premises, and I must say, it did not work… All it did was make my hair feel somewhat softer and that’s it.
I followed the directions perfectly but still managed to have poor results. My hair is not even thick or curly, it’s really REALLY fine with a wave through it and frizz. Make sure you scratch suggestions about it in the comment form. I hope that helps! Now please pay attention. Not the ammonia or peroxide that originally make the change in the hair, I know it’s comparable to a colorrefreshing shampoo or conditioner which contain the ne one might need to refresh. Furthermore, cOMMOM CENSE WILL TELL YOU THAT YOU CANT FLAT IRAN A HAIR WET!!!! IHEARD FROM SO MANY CLIENTS AND SAW WITH MY OWN EYES SALON OWNERS USING THE FLA IRON, RIGHT AFTER THE SOLUTION WAS APPLIED… WITHOUT BLOWDRYING THE HAIR….
I’ve read the Oregon OSHA report, and what really is says is that the product contains formaldehyde and that the manufacturer should acknowledge that and provide guidance on appropriate ways to control the hazard.
Now they’ve agreed to. Anyway, now that the company itself has admitted that its product contains formaldehyde and agreed to modify its marketing and labeling practices, what does that do to the hoax? Needless to say, I am more interested in how this kind of a product could’ve really similar effect as one containing formaldehyde. There really ain’t any methylene glycol in the ingredient list for the new product, Just a note -I think BB was upfront about what’s in the BB Zero. Instead, they are offering the Brazilian Blowout Zero formula as an alternative for those whose personal preference is for a methylene glycolfree formula, Brazilian Blowout ain’t recalling their original formula. My hair still has frizz and only has one my head part that is straighter.
Do NOT use BB Zero!!!
I still have to either flatiron or round brush it to death, Know what, I for awhile blonde hair with some natural wave and hoped to tame the frizz and shorten drying time…I would say that my drying time is shortened somewhat.
I waited and researched about BB for months before I got it. My stylist dd the BB Zero 4 days ago and I am so displeased! Then, sometimes I look a mess, By the way I will go without treatment for now. I am not sure about Thermafuse. Nonetheless, please help! For example, I truly appreciate for ages being that I can not use lye in my hair. Actually, its next to impossible to accept any other textures, right after you go straight hair. It gives a horrifying reaction to my eczema that causes me to become a hermit.
I landed on for a while being that I saw an article about BB Zero and was preparing to try it.
I am interested in the Zerran product and should like to receive more information from people that used it or have knowledge about it.
It does not sit right with me, Know what, I read about it. Essentially, dOES NOT WORK. Friday. Salon is willing to re do my hair this week. What bothers me the most is that I contacted Brazilian Blowout and they did call and said they have wonderful reviews and that it’s the stylists fault. Masters degree and I KNOW it was not the stylists fault. I will have this done and after that never give my money to this company again. Let me tell you something. I was really taken back by that comment.
I do encourage you to look up non biased sources of information about how to safely use salon products.
They’re not turning a profit from selling you a product, OSHA, for the sake of example, is concerned with occupational safety.
Best of luck to you, and I hope you stay in good health. For any longer being that someone does not seem to have a ‘reaction’ does not mean you are not still being constantly exposed to Formaldehyde. Severe burning/sinus pain/eye pain/headache. That’s interesting. I should be looking to find a salon that does not do these…for your personal health! It is I don’t even DO this service!Cancer survivor???!
I am a Hairstylist, and do not perform this service.I work in a salon that does the Brazilian Blowout service and have experienced first hand at the health problems it made! NO, I’m pretty sure I would NOT continue to do this service.What your client is experiencing with her sinuses is exactly what has happened to me. Not nearly identical burning, itching, and stuff I found that odd. Actually, would have saved me that $ 300 for the third go round. I had the original BB done last year and it was extremely uncomfortable the entire time, my eyes burned, my chest was on fire, Actually I couldnt stop coughing, and stuff BUT the results were unbelievable for a girl with naturally coarse thick unruly hair. Found it odd that the results werent quite identical. I’d say if I cant have the original formula consequently I’m not wasting my time or money. I mentioned this to my stylist and asked her if they had changed the product she said no. Certainly, I am so glad I stumbled upon this site. Loads of info can be found online. Wish I had read this first. Went back a second time. Although, thought I would do it again since I liked it once, didnt like it once, and needed a tie breaker.
I was thrilled.
I love my stylist but she LIED.
BIG LIE. I am planning to print this off and take it to my stylist. Know what, I can know the whole methylene glycol/formaldehyde thing being confusing, I’d say in case someone doesn’t know much about chemistry. Especially when certain people are arguing depending on CAS numbers, and all that stuff, for a while being that it seems that the manufacturers are not much interested in the clients and only seek for to profit.
I can’t imagine how that can be healthy for one’s hair especially since we have relaxers/perms that are for any longer being that many have said that it burns.
I do not know how much can cause one’s scalp to burn or react but I would probably stay away. Tony, I’m quite sure I don’t careTherefore in case you don’t value your health you have a huge issue. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… I seek for to work without a runny nose, tightbandaround -my -head feeling, and difficulty breathing. Nevertheless, I had the ZERO done two weeks ago, and it didn’t work in general for me. What a disappointment! I was anxious to get this done and realize now that the few online ‘so called’ reviews are probably promos.
It was still frizzy and after the second wash.
It looked great after they styled it at the salon.
After my first wash it was actually drier and frizzier than before when I let it dry naturally. They are nevertheless announcing a completely new formula that doesn’t contain methylene glycol, that it had better. Around 2030″ shampoos gradually make the treatment wear off.
Not after a few shampoos, as you suggest, the effect does wear off over time. You can wash your hair as normal, nearly any 2 days or whatever -no greasiness required. Formaldehyde can react with free amino groups to join hair proteins together, that seems like it will even out the surface of hair strands. Is this stuff legit? Eventually, it makes sense that formaldehyde would smooth hair. I really don’t notice anything that looks like camouflaged formaldehyde. We did the BB Zero on half of her head and none of us were impressed really. Our test model was a typical curly/frizzy hair type that we had with the last Keratin smoothing treatment we used. My salon had training day on the BB Zero. We still had to spend time blow drying, and the treated side of the head showed this particular subtle difference, I actually doubt we I reckon there’re I am not recommending it to anyone. That should be great, I’d say if someone would please figure out a safe way to do this treatment. They throughout the application, as far as for the clients -I imagine it’s not great for the product to come in contact with their scalp. I’d say in case no product comes in contact with your skin, for a salon stylist similar to yourself, and the ventilation is good enough that you can’t smell the product before, during, or after application, hereafter it is probably reasonably safe for the stylist.
My guess is the cysteine is the major active.
Thioglyocolic acid is sometimes used in straighteners.
Whenever resulting in the the hair strands being held in the new conformation, throughout the heating and pressing of the hair, new disufide cross links form in the keratin. For example, the hair fibres relax, the idea is that the free thiol reduces the disulfide bonds in the keratin. Then, I recently finished an investigative series on the product and am convinced that So there’re highly questionable circumstances surrounding Oregon OSHA’s, OSHA’s, and the FDA’s public announcements regarding the product. Sounds familiardoes it not? My research shows that air sampling research conducted by these entities definitively show that the product’s formaldehyde release were all substantially below state and federal safety limits. I hope you’ll read over my series and perhaps address these problems in a really new report. Thus, By the way I believe this story highlights a few important problems regarding product disclosure, government protocols, and media hysteria. You should take this seriously. Lye also burns.
Lye based straightners just don’t work for me.
The second application really burned so I had it rinsed out and had conditioner applied.
My problem with the new formula is the product has lye. Burning stopped. First time it worked great. Usually, I had a bad reaction to BB. Make sure you drop suggestions about it. Whenever believing this to be a safe product for myself and my stylist, my eyes and nose were gushing throughout the entire procedure… significantly more during blow drying, yesterday I received the treatment.
My stylist was baffled and very upset, as I am her second client with this issue.
I received the Coppola Keratin treatment 8 months ago, and this formaldehydefree treatment did not produce these effects.
Does anyone know if there was tests done to prove this new version truly is formaldehyde free? I am very skeptical of this new safe version and question if And so it’s formaldehyde free, despite the list of ingredients. I woke up this morning with an awful migraine and nausea. By the way, a question about BB Zero… are there any ingredients that are potentially dangerous in this new version? It doesn’t work. Known the first three weeks, my hair looked nice. My hair was back to the way it used to be, after that.
