Permanent to semi-permanent hair dyes are loaded with chemicals that are dangerous to our human bodies. Studies and research have found that there is a higher incidence for certain types of cancer – bladder cancer, non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Leukemia, (cancer of the blood and bone marrow) and breast cancer.
PPD or Para-Phenylenediamine is a poisonous chemical, now banned in Europe, is used in the semi to permanent hair dyes. It was voted Allergen of the Year by the American Contact Dermatitis Society in 2006. This chemical is used in fabric dyes, cosmetics, printing and photocopying inks, photo developing chemicals. Fatal reactions experienced by the users of such dyes have prompted the European Union to use explicit warnings on the dye packets. 36 chemicals were found in hair dyes that were not safe to use by consumers. Some of the most dangerous ingredients used in hair dyes are; Ammonia, Peroxide, p-phenylenediamine, Diaminobenzene, Toluene-2,5-Diamine, Resorcinol and others. It is expected that the U.S government will be next to demand such explicit warnings on Chemical hair dye boxes.
