Chemical relaxers or hair straighteners are used to manage hair coarseness and straightness which can pose health risks and possible toxic effects to humans. Hence, this study targeted in assessing and evaluating embryotoxic and teratogenic affects of hair relaxers on developing zebrafish embryos. The Fish Embryo Toxicity (FET) test was utilized to… (More)
