Recently I had the opportunity to serve as a guest on the Dr. Oz Show about the dangers of Keratin Hair Treatments! It was an exciting day, but it also was very informative to viewers.
The segment explains the risk that stylists and clients endure when they are exposed to toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde in Keratin Hair Treatments (for example, the Brazilian Blowout). Nikki Walton explains to Dr. Oz the dangers present in these products and walks him through the steps clients go through during a treatment, while showing how harmful the procedure is along the way.
Jen and I are thrilled that the segment explains how everyone in the salon is affected, not just those engaging in the treatment. This is such a serious fact that needs to be addressed and recognized.
Watch the segment by clicking the link below! It is divided into 2 clips. I appear in the second clip. We were cut down a lot from the initial piece, but I am so happy that we were able to spread awareness through such a huge platform. It’s a great step in the right direction!
