Look Pretty While Staying Healthy

A fascinating item came up on my Grist Facebook feed this morning, titled Ask Umbra on potentially toxic hair and nail salon treatments.

The article is informative and helpful to keep updated on the health risks of beauty treatments. I, for example, knew that there might be a risk with the Brazilian blowout, but didn't realize that some treatment products have up to 8% formaldehyde or its byproducts--which honestly, is completely unacceptable to me.

I was thinking of getting another Brazilian blowout treatment once my hair grows out from my current short crop, but am not going to now that I know how high the risk really is (at least in my eyes).

Hope you find that article as informative as I did.
