There are seven billion people on our planet, and all of them are different and unique. They have different characters, tastes, and values. All the personalities are bright and extraordinary. That’s why very often people try to express their inner self due to their looks.
As a rule, they buy extraordinary clothes that help them to emphasize their emotions, thoughts, outlooks on life and so on. However, very often people also dye their hair in order in different colors in order to become more interesting, fashionable and unique. They usually don’t think that coloring their locks so often can be dangerous for their health.
That’s why today, we have decided to prepare some important information for you. Here is a list of dangerous side effects of hair coloring. You should know them in order to stay healthy.
Before choosing any hair products you should consult your hairdresser in order to choose the best products and not to spend extra money. The same case is when you are buying hair dyes, be very careful.
Hair dyes contain a lot of chemicals that can be harmful for our health. They also contain paraphenylenediamine (PPD), a chemical that can provoke asthma. That’s why it’s better to avoid hair coloring, or you should at least choose only high quality hair dye. The best thing will be to consult your hairdresser.
The skin of the scalp is very sensitive. Chemicals that can be founds in hair dyes can affect your scalp and cause rashes. If you have noticed this issue, you should consult a dermatologist and get a treatment as soon as possible.
We have already mentioned that most of hair dyes contain PPD. You should know that it affects our DNA and can cause cancer. However, this information is still not scientifically proved. Hair dyes also contain resorcinol, a chemical which increases the risks of getting breast cancer.
#5 Irritable skin
Since hair dyes contain a lot of chemicals, they can easily irritate your skin. You can suffer from itching, redness, burning sensation, and other symptoms. That’s why you should do a patch test to find out if you have such a reaction. You should do this test two days before you are going to get your locks colored.
#6 Brittle hair
Hair dyes have bad impact on our hair and scalp. They can provoke hair dryness, hair fall and can make your hair dull and brittle. That’s why you should choose the dye wisely. If your hair is already damaged, the only way out is to get it cut.
We are talking about PPD again. As you have already understood, it’s a rather dangerous chemical. It can also provoke allergy. So, if you have an itchy scalp with redness and irritation, swelling around your eyes and some other symptoms, it’s time to visit your doctor.
