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!
If you are thinking about coloring your hair, it's worth exploring natural options to bring out highlights, to add a little shading or to cover gray. Using a natural product, such as Color by Nature Lustrous Henna® is very safe and beneficial to your hair than a conventional hair dye that may completely damage your hair and scalp with prolong use.
"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.
A 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.
Such 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.
