How the Trump administration is changing the face of hair care at the salon
A day after the White House announced it would ban the use of hair products containing chemicals linked to cancer, Salon.com and other news sites reported on the administration’s latest moves to protect consumers from harmful chemicals in the hair care industry.
The Trump administration has been moving to restrict use of chemicals linked with cancer in hair care products for more than a decade.
The ban will take effect July 1.
But Salon.org and other sites are reporting that the Trump White House is planning to roll back some of the previous ban on the use and sale of some types of hair and body care products.
In September 2017, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that it was banning some types and amounts of a chemical that is used in the industry.
That ban included certain types of products, including shampoo, conditioners, conditioner foams, body lotions and lotions that contain sodium lauryl sulfate.
The new FDA rule applies to “hair care products sold in hair salons,” which is the industry term for haircare facilities.
The FDA has said it will ban certain types and quantities of a substance, but the new rule does not specify which ones.
The new rule also includes a new requirement for hair salon operators to report certain chemicals in hair products, and the companies that sell those products will have to report the chemical to the FDA.
In a statement, the FDA said it would review the proposed rule, and would issue a final rule in the fall.
The agency also said that it has “received public comments on its proposed rule and has made a public notice of its intent to issue final rule.”
The agency said that while the proposed ban will “not result in any significant increase in the use or sale of hair-care products containing potentially carcinogenic chemicals, it will likely lead to a decline in the supply of such products and may cause a decline of consumer confidence in the cosmetics industry and in the haircare industry.”
The FDA is also considering a proposal that would make it more difficult for salons to sell hair products to the general public, saying it “may have unintended consequences.”
The proposal would prohibit the sale of “hair-care equipment and products to consumers who do not hold a cosmetology license, are not current salons members, or who have no current salon membership,” according to the agency.
The rule also would require a salon owner to notify the FDA of any use of a hair-contaminated product.
The proposed rule also does not require the salons owner to identify the chemicals in a product.
The proposed rule is likely to be an interim measure.
The FDA is expected to issue a finalized rule sometime this year.
The ban on some products, like shampoo, has been controversial, especially because the FDA has found a link between certain types in hair-product use.
The agency found a chemical linked to cancers in people with hair loss, and said the ban could have an adverse effect on the quality of hair.
