The controversy about keratin hair straightening systems continues. On the docket for a Congressional staff briefing taking place on Wednesday, May 18, is the “Brazilian Blowout” case-study. The study reportedly revealed that hair products with dangerously high levels of formaldehyde are allowed to be used in salons due to lax federal and state regulations.

The staff briefing is being hosted by the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, the National Healthy Nail Salon Alliance and the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. The overall theme of the briefing is the dangers of chemical exposure in the salon workplace. Salon owners/technicians will give first-hand accounts of working with the dangerous chemicals found in salon products and serious health impacts.

And Congress has already taken notice of the reported formaldehyde threat. A group of 10 members of Congress sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration Tuesday, expressing their deep concern regarding formaldehyde-containing hair straighteners and asking the agency to take immediate action to protect workers and consumers.
