Coppola Keratin Complex in Canada

by Susan Edwards
(Hamilton, Ontario, Canada)

I had Coppola Keratin Smoothing treatment about 3 weeks. While having it I could hardly breath, although I was warned the fumes would be strong. My throat hurt for days after. I love the results, but what is the price.

Our Canadian news has just advised they are taking this, and other keratin products, off the shelf because the formaldehyde or aldehyde level is way above acceptable levels. Coppola is 1.8 and the acceptable level, here in Canada, is .2. So I don't know if it is worth the health risk to continue with this treatment.

I'm a French Canadian and I was very upset about formaldehyde in Brazilian blow out.

I have just discover this month a new product which seems to be the first Brazilian keratin treatment to do at home (much more inexpensive than my hairdresser)and without formaldehyde.

I've bought it on their web site (www.keraline.ca) two days ago and I will let you know about the result soon.
