British scientists warned women that all the hair dyes they regularly use include chemicals that cause cancer. Additionally, they claim that the same risk to health is posed by both, permanent dyes used at salons and home hair coloring kits.
Specifically, these damaging chemicals in hair dyes may react with air pollutants, like tobacco smoke, and create one of the most powerful cancerous compounds.
Furthermore, scientists claim that the risk is measured as over a third of women and 1 in 10 men who frequently color their hair. However, the cosmetic industry strongly opposes to these proofs.
Namely, this warning came from the team of researchers at a company “Green Chemicals” in Leeds. They led a research and reviewed the chemistry near hair dye. According to those researchers, the information that they published was readily available, and they discovered the relation of these chemicals to cancer.
These scientists that chemicals also known as secondary amines, found or formed in all of the types of permanent hair dyes can deeply enter the skin and stay on the hair for several weeks, months or years after the dyeis applicated.
They could further on react with tobacco smoke or exhaust fumes and create toxic chemicals known as N-nitrosamines. However, they believe that they can be generated using a simple chemical reaction.
Previously, hair dye was related to numerous types of cancer, such as anovaries, brain, breast and bladder cancer, and leukemia too.
These scientists in Leeds ,furthermore, fear that the number of individuals whoare becoming allergic to the contents of hair dye will grow even more, which can end fatally.
As a substitute, brunettes can use some simple tricks and naturally gain the desired color. This effect can be achieved by using coffee. Also, this dying procedure will stimulate the hair growth.
A study published in January 2007 with a topic by the International Journal of Dermatology, confirmed that coffee stimulates hair growth.
