What are the risks to having a Brazilian keratin treatment (bkt) procedure when pregnant?

Too many!: Looking good & staying healthy need not be mutually exclusive goals, & the evidence shows that bkt may not be safe for anyone, least of all pregnant women. I always counsel my patients to very carefully consider what they "feed" not only their mouths, but also their skin and scalp- which are highly vascular and large "consumers" of products.

Your hair still get wet and washed by shampoo. ...Read more
