Continuing in the journey to advocate for safer cosmetics in the salon industry, last month I had the opportunity to serve as a guest on The Dr. Oz Show.
The topic revolved around the dangers of Keratin Smoothing Treatments for hair, and how it affects not just the stylists and the clients receiving the service, but everyone else in the salon area.
We featured a blog about it on Pretty Toxic. You can also click the link below to see the video segment, which explains how the formaldehyde is released in the air when the toxic hair services are being performed. I appear at the end of the second clip to describe the health symptoms I experienced from exposure.
I am so happy that this topic was touched on during the episode! We still have a lot of work to do to spread awareness but every step counts and this one is pretty big!
