BETTER BE SAFE
Never use synthetic dyes when coloring your hair!
Glowing hair reflects a person's state of health, as well as creates that beautiful look that we all want to keep forever!
"Conventional dyes contain high level of toxic chemicals that can be absorbed through the scalp, where there is a rich blood supply. Then these chemicals circulate throughout your body, where they can be stored in the tissues and cause adverse health effects," says Marianne Marchese, ND, who practices natural medicine at a Woman's Time Clinic in Portland, Oregon.
recent study conducted at Yale University
found a link between permanent hair dye and Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. One study
for example, suggested that woman over the age of 50 who have used permanent
hair dyes for ten or more years have an increased risk of breast cancer. Yet
another discovered that users of permanent hair dyes are 2:1 times more likely
to have bladder cancer. Other studies have linked the use of hair dyes to
allergies and skin disorders like eczema and to far more serious diseases like
leukemia and ovarian cancer.
study results should not be surprising
when one considers the number of toxic ingredients used by both salon and
consumer hair coloring formulas. In one analysis of popular brands and
formulations, Consumer Reports found nearly 20 different ingredients that were
classified as potential human carcinogens. The suspects included such heavy
oncological hitters as coal tar derivatives, para-phenylenediamine (PPD),
(which can also cause blindness), bezenediamine dihydrochloride, and aminonline
dihydrochloride. Other hazardous ingredients include, ammonia, peroxide and
lead, a heavy metal commonly found in products that gradually color hair over
time with many repeated applications.
