Hair dyes used by millions of women contain chemicals linked to cancer
British scientists have warned. They say that both home hair coloring kits and the dyes used at expensive salons pose a potential risk to health.
Writing in a respected scientific journal, they say chemicals in permanent hair dyes can react with tobacco smoke and other pollutants in the air to form one of the most powerful cancer-causing compounds known to man.
They warn that chemicals called secondary amines, which are either found in all permanent hair dyes or are formed in them, can penetrate the skin and stay on the hair for weeks, months or even years after the dye is applied.
Over time, they could react with tobacco smoke and exhaust fumes, to form highly poisonous chemicals called N-nitrosamines. read full article.
WOW!!! It's time for a change! I, like many of you are fighting the inevitable, Gray Hair! I refuse it. I have never liked traditional chemical dyes. I knew they were bad for me, but what won't a girl do for pretty hair color?
I was adamant that I would not submit to gray hair. It doesn't seem to bother some, but for me, no way!
I began searching for an alternative. I tried various brands of natural hair color with dismal results, but it did not stop me from continuing my search. I knew there had to be something out there that was chemical free but also offered beautiful deep rich color. What I finally found exceeded my expectations!
Not only does it give you a deep rich color, it conditions your hair at the same time. What a bonus. We all know chemical dyes are bad for us, the smell alone is almost enough to make you think twice.
Now, if you would like to expand on this idea of feeding your hair only nutritious ingredients here are some other things to consider.
Due to a thyroid condition I was losing hair at a rapid rate. It was very alarming. Our hair frames our face, and if our hair doesnt look good, well you know what I mean.
Most hair care products and cosmetics (even organic if you can believe it) contain very harmful ingredients just like hair dyes. They contain sodium laurel sulphates ( one of the most commonly used poisons in the World ) and parabens (linked to cancer, endocrine disruption, reproductive toxicity, immunotoxicity, neurotoxicity and skin irritation. Since parabens are used to kill bacteria in water-based solutions, they inherently have some toxicity to cells ).
I highly recommend you google these two ingredients and learn their dangers. Then check lables of the products you use and see if they contain either of these two ingredients. My guess is they probably do.
Armed with this knowledge, I not only wanted to find an alternative to chemical hair dyes, but I wanted to find an entire product line that was full of ingredients that could nourish my hair helping me to stop the hair loss, and possibly help me to regrow what I had already lost.
I was blown away when after only a couple weeks I really did stop my hair loss!
Within several months I realized that I was regrowing hair. My husband has had the same results. We are both thrilled!
