The Brazilian Blowout controversy rages on as California lawmakers demand that the manufacturers of the Brazilian Blowout and Acai Professional Smoothing Solution, GIB LCC, put warning labels on their packaging.

We covered the Brazilian Blowout dispute back in 2010, when word got out that a stylist in Oregon claimed that they experienced difficulty breathing, eye irritation and nose bleeds when applying the Brazilian Blowout products which consist of 8-10% formaldehyde (a carcinogen), according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

With all of this going on, it’s comforting to know that those of us with frizzy hair have a safe alternative. One such treatment is the new Redken Shape Control.

Shape Control provides benefits to the consumer such as reduced styling time/improved manageability, reduction/elimination of frizz, and increased shine, softness and condition of the hair.  The new texture range features Kera-Shape Complex technology that contains shaping agents for permanent smoothing or curling, cationic conditioners for moisture and shine and emollients for control and manageability. Shape Control is ideal for consumers who want the end result of long-lasting waves, curls, smooth or straight styles without compromising their health and condition of their hair.Shape Control offers three permanent style-transforming techniques:
TECHNIQUE   BENEFITS
Urban Curls
  • Thermally reconditions – hair feels softer, smoother, and shinier
  • Stylists can customize curl pattern [with curling iron] by placing and shaping curls based on client’s needs/hair type
  • Frizz control

  • Straightens hair [with straightening iron]
  • Provides volume and frizz control, even at high humidity levels
  • Thermally reconditions – hair feels softer, smoother, and shinier 

SCIENTIFIC ASSESSMENT: This treatment is indeed formaldehyde-free. It contains Ammonium Thioglycolate, Ethanolamine Thioglycolate and Ammonium Hydroxide. These ingredients work together to permanently break the hair bonds in order to help smooth and straighten the hair. This will certainly perform well but may cause more damage to hair than other types of salon hair smoothing formulas on the market.
