OKLAHOMA CITY -- The product Brazilian Blowout is used by stylists and hair gurus everywhere. But is taming frizzy hair worth a health risk?

The product is used to straighten frizzy or curly hair using a seven-step process that takes about 90 minutes.

Brazilian Blowout is claimed to be free of the chemical known to have caused cancer, formaldehyde. But, a recent test done on the product by Oregon's Occupational Safety & Health Administration proved that the chemical makeup of Brazilian Blowout included 9 percent formaldehyde.

While a lawsuit is pending between Brazilian Blowout and Oregon's Occupational Safety & Health Administration where Brazilian Blowout claims the test findings are flawed, some metro salons still offer the product.

According to Brazilian Blowout's website, some of the salons in the metro offering the product include:
