Almost all people who get gray hair as they age. However, gray hair can occur even when you’re young. Such was the case of my father, who turned gray at the age of 16, so you can not even remember what was its original color, and neither do their sibilings. On the other hand, my mother began to turn gray at the age of 32, the same age I get my first gray hairs. My grandmother did not begin to turn gray ‘until she was well into the 60s and until now the hair is still dark brown color was always in some places.
In the past, I always thought “what a waste” when my mother went to a salon and paid good money to dye your hair, bet even if a cane like that is not my place to judge because it made to feel confidence. However, I decided I will not dye my hair, first because I love gray hair in both men and women, and then they do not have the time and chemicals in boxes scare me.
But for those of you who want to dye your hair, I found a solution a few years ago for my mother and now I will share with you.
cancerous Boxes Chemicals
If you dye your hair or are planning to do so, you should know that there are more than 5,000 kinds of chemicals in a box dye The hair. Some create pigment, some create a “nice” smell, some of them are known to be carcinogenic. This is very dangerous considering statistics showing that one third of women over 18 years and approximately 10 percent of men over age 40 use some type of hair dye.
The final list (not so)
Here are some of the chemicals used in the Catalogue of hair dye that were the standouts for me.
DMDM hydantoin : As the product of DMDM hydantoin is formaldehyde, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) indicates the level of danger of DMDM hydantoin to moderate / high. It is also used in herbicides, floor waxes, and polymers.
PPD : PPD is short for para-phenylenediamine. This chemical is used as a wood preservative and it is recommended to avoid contact with skin, when used for that purpose. According to research, PPD, in combination with Hydrogene Peroxide is highly toxic and can lead to cancer.
Ammonia : A very corrosive and irritating gas with a pungent, suffocating odor. It can cause caustic burns and lung irritation.
Resorcinol :. The resorcinol is a toxic dye that can cause irritation of the scalp, and is an allergen that affects the endocrine system
Parabens methyl parabens and Propulparabens are 2 paraben preservatives more common. They are widely used in hair care products and can cause severe allergies and skin irritation.
So what is the alternative?
may sound incredible to you, but the solution and the best natural alternative is potato juice. potato skins can actually darken the hair. In spite of this method may not work for blondes, it will work equally well for everyone else.
