Brazilian Blowouts Must Be Re-Labeled as \"Cancer Causing\"
You know how when Rachel Zoe likes something in fashion she says, “I die?” Yeah, this is THAT, exactly.

Brazilian Blowouts are known for semi-permanently straightening the hair of women with naturally curly hair, and it was found out last year that the product contains the cancer causing agent formaldehyde.

But now, California’s attorney general is saying that all Brazilian Blowout products must have one of those surgeon general warnings like “may cause cancer.” Yeah, like cigarettes and alcohol!

For starters, what doesn’t cause cancer nowadays? Microwaves, cell phones, leaving water bottles in hot cars, they all cause cancer.

The real question is: Do you want fabulous straight hair, or do you want to inhale formaldehyde gas and maybe die. Priorities, you guys.

Even with the carcinogens in Brazilian blow-outs, their popularity hasn’t changed. The company that makes Brazilian Blowout products is GIB LLC and they are currently involved in a lawsuit filed by the state in November, the labeling change may settle the lawsuit.

Not only is formaldehyde a carcinogen, it also can irritate the eyes, skin and lungs. All this JUST for straight hair? Does a ceramic flat iron not do the trick?

According to the Attorney General in a statement, “California laws protect consumers and workers and give them fair notice about the health risks associated with the products they use. This settlement requires the company to disclose any hazard so that Californians can make informed choices.”

Get ready for signs posted in front of your favorite hair salon that read, “We may cause cancer, unless you want to keep your curly hair, you’re okay.”
