With over 30 years of experience doing hair, and doing it well (thank you) I’ve learned a lot about the benefits and risks of using hair-dyes. As a hair-colorist I’ve seen lots of companies produce hair-dye products but the big question is,
HOW SAFE is Paraphenylenediamine or PPD?
I’ve seen the integrity of some of those products degrade dramatically over the years. For more than 100 years, para-phenylenediamine (PPD) and related products have been the main agents in today’s permanent hair-dyes. PPD and its associated hair-dyes is they sometimes cause allergic reactions and allergies. In fact, during the 20th century, allergic reactions to PPD enhanced products became such a serious issue that it was banned altogether from hair-dyes in Germany, France and Sweden.
Currently, legislation from the European Union allows PPD to compromise up to 6% of hair- dyes used in the consumer market. Why is all this important?
Well, a patient with contact allergy to a hair-dye may end-up with an outbreak of dermatitis on the face or around the hair line. Even more severe allergic reactions may also occur.
Especially among younger people, hair-dyes, in a variety of wild colors has become oh-so-very hip. Even more concerning is that female high school or college-age students are dyeing their hair at shorter intervals, increasing their risk for allergic reactions.
In the U.S.A., the number of young men dyeing their hair has increased by as much as 25%! That’s a whole lot of hair-dye being sold. One leading Japanese company saw its own hair-dye sales more than double in a ten-year period.
I care about you, and of course...your healthy hair. That’s why I use only the finest international hair-care products on my clients who want to see how great they look with a new hair color or maybe even just some fun streaks.
I make sure the hair-color products I use are always organic, PPD-free, ammonia-free and also environmentally-friendly. Plus, before using any of these products, I try them at home on myself first, to make sure they are toxin-free and good for my own hair, before I use it on yours.
To dye your hair or not to dye?
That depends on the hair-dye product used. Thinking about coloring your hair? Let me show you how to do it the best and safest way. NO PPD for me and certainly not for you. We all want our hair to look its best, but that doesn’t mean having to risk some nasty allergy that will end up making you feel your worst. I take the guesswork out of deciding which dyeing method and products are best for you!
