Beware: Hair Dye Can Be Deadly

20

eva blond hairBritish scientists have recently discovered that some hair dyes used by millions of women have chemicals in them that have been linked to cancer. It does not matter whether you buy a hair dying kit yourself from the store or have it done at an expensive salon; when the dye comes in contact with tobacco smoke or other air pollutants it has the ability to become toxic.

Researchers say that one-third of women dye their hair and so do one in ten men. It was not difficult for researchers from the Leeds-based company, Green Chemicals, to discover this connection. They researched the chemicals in the hair dye and just by doing that they were able to determine the potentially fatal connections.

“They warn that chemicals called secondary amines, which are either found in all permanent hair dyes or are formed in them, can penetrate the skin and stay on the hair for weeks, months or even years after the dye is applied.

Over time, they could react with tobacco smoke and exhaust fumes, to form highly poisonous chemicals called N-nitrosamines.

Unsafe: Even dyes used at expensive salons can contain the dangerous chemicals

Known to cause cancer, these are banned from use in cosmetics.

But the Leeds researchers argue that they can still be generated via a simple chemical reaction.

Hair dye has previously been linked to a range of cancers, including tumours of the breast, bladder, ovaries and brain and leukaemia. 

There are also concerns that increasing numbers of people are becoming allergic to their contents, sometimes with fatal results.”

  1. They already knew this…same with the perms…the tracks in many fake hair products also emit carcinogens…they have this knowledge before they mainstream these products…but that is part of this ridiculous experiment!

  3. My cousin gave birth to her daughter 2 days ofter dying her hair blacki. Cause what covered her baby when she came out the womb?? Black dye was smeared all over the baby long with blood and other mucus. From the HEAD to the UTERUS, it’s all connected and the dye will travel in your systems and find someplace to stay inside you.

  5. Oxidizing agents are usually hydrogen peroxide, and the alkaline environment is usually provided by ammonia. The combination of hydrogen peroxide and the primary intermediate causes the natural hair to be lightened, providing a “blank canvas” for the dye. Ammonia opens the hair shaft pores so that the dye can actually bond with the hair and speeds up the reaction of the dye with the hair.,’

    • Hydrogen peroxide is a bleach. According to my husband it works wonders on his white clothes. He works nites and washes his clothes when he comes home from work.

      I haven’t tried it.

  6. OH WELL ???!!!! GOTTA GO GOTTA GO ! Checking out Lovely Red or Blonde or BOTH ! IJS Show Eva’s pic and to me that is to suggest you are speaking to Afrikan Amerikan women and since society use incarcerated , killed , castrated mentally the Afrikan Amerikan Males the care starting tue Genocide of the Women it Color

  7. This is so interesting. My sister died in June 2013 from liver/pancreatic cancer. She was diagnose in December 2012. She went thru regular and progressive chemo treatment but they told her there was nothing more they could do.

    My sister had been using hair dye for some time. She started to use a hair dye that her beautician used and suddenly she ended up in hospital on three different occasions. She did sue the first time and won. It kept happening to her so she tried to sue again, but did not win. I told her to stop trying to cover the gray, by going gray. This article is interesting because when she was diagnose it has crossed my mind about the hair dye. This dye incidents happen on and off a few years prior to her being diagnose with cancer in 12/2012. I’m wondering whether or not other research has been done on women using hair dye ended up with cancer. My sister was using black hair dye.
