Safety While Using Brazilian Hair Treatments



Studio Accommodations for

Brazilian Blowout and Keratin Treatments


For the comfort and safety of clients, her associates, and herself, expert Jordana Lorraine uses a three-tier filtration system with all smoothing treatments offered in her studio.

Keratin and smoothing treatments such as Brazilian Blowout have garnered attention and even controversy over

their ingredients.  It is important to take precautions when using products which are known or suspected to have harmful side effects.


What you see and read about here is the Chemical Source Capture System from Aerovex, used by Brazilian Blowout and Keratin Treatment Specialist Jordana Lorraine in Marina Del Rey (Los Angeles) California, which was designed specifically for use with formaldehyde and related chemicals in hair treatments.  The Aerovex system is backed by all founding members of the Professional Keratin Smoothing Council, and distributed by several treatment manufacturers.



Proper training and use of the product are also key in keeping the salon environment safe!  Jordana has taken and continues to take the highest levels of training offered by each manufacturer whose product she uses.

 

Why are these measures necessary?

Jordana is concerned for the comfort and safety of clients, her associate and herself. And since the treatments are not recommended for pregnant or nursing women, Jordana questioned if it was advisable for them to be nearby a treatment and breathe the affected air.  The chemical source capture system shown here, in combination with an activated carbon room air purifier and an overhead exhaust system, cleans and circulates air during hair smoothing services.


Why don’t more salons have systems like this?

It’s hard to say why salons would ignore such a great opportunity to protect both staff and clients!  Many just may not have done enough research on the options available.  All smoothing and keratin treatment companies warn in their Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) that stylists must use their products in a “well ventilated area.”  Some salons try to get by with opening windows or using fans, ionizers or air purifiers.  But fans just move the air around and purifiers are generally not strong enough for the size of the salon.  While beautiful hair is a priority in Jordana’s chair, so are health and safety.


Is it dangerous to have the treatment without this accommodation?

OSHA and the FDA are investigating the processes and the safest ways to perform them.  As mentioned above, the products’ safety information states that appropriate ventilation must be used; many keratin treatment companies have backed and recommended the Chemical Source Capture System from Aerovex.  Ask your salon what measures they are taking to protect you!


Jordana wants to provide the safest and most comfortable environment while offering these very popular services.
