A Distrubing Trend: Embalming Fluid to Straighten Hair?

October 26, 2007 by SheFindsHenley

I am cursed with straight hair. Now I know all of you out there with curly hair will disagree, but trust me–flat, lifeless locks are my albatross.

So I can't understand why wavy-haired gals now expose themselves to formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, to mimic the boring style I've got. That's right, the coveted Brazilian straigtening service uses emblaming fluid to get the kinks out. What gives? Are women really dying for straight hair?

Please–with the help of the right product and a flat iron, you can alternate between fluffy and flat in a New York minute (okay, maybe more like a Georgia minute, but you catch my drift). I can't imagine the damage inflicted by years of an iron outweighs that of dousing your head in chemicals. But maybe I'm wrong; maybe I just don't understand the plight of the ringlets.
