How Dangerous is Your Hair Dye?
Whether it’s bleaching, balayaging, ombreing, highlighting, single processing or double processing, roughly 85 percent of women color their hair in some form, either going DIY with inexpensive drugstore dyes or by spending hours having it professionally colored by a stylist. The reason, beyond covering gray hair, is usually unanimous: to look and feel more attractive.
Long ago, the Romans used a variety of ingredients and hair dying methods such as henna (a plant-based reddish dye) as well as berries, crushed nut shells, and even leeches mixed with vinegar to turn hair black, and pigeon poop to turn hair blonde. Given these alternatives, we say yes to modern day hair dye.
Or, maybe not.
Turns out, most hair dye products contain more than 5,000 chemicals with some acting as potent carcinogens. Chronic exposure to these toxins can be linked to certain cancers (especially bladder and lymphoma), neurotoxicity and immune issues, as well as allergies and irritations to the skin, eyes and lungs.
