Hair dye ingredients have long been the cause of much debate when it comes to which ingredients are the biggest risk factors to health. It isn't easy to avoid all the ingredients there is doubt about when you are seeking to permanently and/or drastically change your hair color. Quite a number of permanent hair dyes contain PPD (p-phenylenediamine), which is an ingredient that has raised health questions. PPD is the reason many people have allergic reactions when dying their hair and cancer also has been linked to it according to beauty consultant and Naturally Healthy Hair author, Mary Beth Janssen. The chemicals that are in a many of the dyes and highlighting kits available are too harsh for many people, but there are new products on the market now that promise to work well for them without the resulting health problems, such as allergic reactions.
Though still required to work as they should, the less caustic permanent hair colors contain such chemicals as peroxide, diaminobenzene, ammonia and p-Phenylenediamine in amounts that are much smaller Organic Color Systems has permanent hair dyes and other products that are better than any of the ammonia containing hair dyes on the market. This line of products, which is devoid of displeasing side effects, is only available in professional styling salons. In addition to hair colors, Organic Color Systems' line of products includes activators, lighteners and concentrates, as well as hair care products that are available only in salons that can be used to repair damage to hair that are compatible with the hair colors. A great advantage to using Organic Color Systems products is that you get healthy, gorgeous hair without damage, ammonia fumes, burning or itching, hot roots, brassing, banding, plastics, sulfates, parabens, animal testing or animal products. Harsh chemicals should not be needed for temporary hair coloring or highlighting. A couple of short term options are Naturcolor and Vegetel, which do not have chemicals that will cause damage.
The effect will last for only a few washes, however. Henna is a true, natural dye that is temporary and has a long history that goes back at least to Cleopatra's time. The leaves of Lawsonia, a desert shrub, have been powdered to make henna as a dye for skin and hair for thousands of years. Rainbow Henna is the maker of a wide range of hair products that are 100% organic, providing dyes for just about every color from blonde to black. For those who prefer something of a more traditional style packaging, Light Mountain has application kits of organic henna.
Products such as Organic Color Systems, might only be available in salons but many others can be found in your local natural health and beauty supply shops. People who are concerned because of the harsh chemicals in the usual hair dyes have more reason than ever to change to the natural options because of recent research. According to a report from the national Cancer Institute released in 1994, dark colored dyes, such as black and dark brown, have been found to elevate the risks of such cancers as multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkins lymphoma when used over extended time periods. There was also a study in 2001 done by the International Journal of Cancer that showed that individuals who dyed their hair with permanent hair color were at double the risk of developing bladder cancer as individuals who did not use hair dyes at all.
