This smell is familiar... (att: Cupcake!)

I've now washed my hair post-treatment with the QOD Max Oragiq and there is a chemical smell that is very familiar. This is the same smell - only weaker - that Global Keratin had the first week post treatment.

Isn't this smell formaldehyde???

When I worked out today, the smell started emanating from my head...just like Global Keratin.

Cupcake, I am seriously considering having this product tested at a formaldehyde lab.
Anyone know how important is it to use the QOD cleanser before the treatment? Can a cheaper drug store brand shampoo like Neutragena clear do the trick?

I have never smelled any fumes with this product but I don't do many passes either. I am shocked that you say it smells like Global Keratin. That's the first treatment I used (2% formeldahyde) and it was so potent.

I wonder if Organiq has formeldahyde...I wonder if the culprit could be polyquaturnium 7? I would like to compare the new "Blue Label" Kerapremium ingredients with the aldehydes to the Organiq to see if there are any similarities.

Anyhoo, you had fab results!
Hi lady!

Thanks for the comments. I'm concerned too. In fact, I found a formaldehyde testing lab in town that will charge only $250 to test it. I am considering doing it.

The guy at the lab did say, however, that anytime there is combustion a little formaldehyde is released. No wonder these products are so tricky to measure.
