4 doctors agree
In brief: 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. Most products are never going to be tested on preggos..

In brief: Uncertain
Brazilian keratin treatments have been associated with certain chemical irregularities so it pays to be cautious, especially when pregnant.
