A personal story about why I stopped dying my hair. Many years ago, I went to see a Live Blood Cell Practitioner and as he was observing the blood under the microscope, I was told that there were these large toxins in my blood sample that he could see. What he told me was it was most likely hair dye because at that time I was dying my hair monthly to hide the grey hair. This information was so upsetting to me that the hair dye toxins showed up and could be so bad for my health that I never dyed my hair again.
So, do you enjoy dying your hair regularly? Or maybe even just occasionally? Although many people may think that products such as hair dye are harmless, there are a number of toxins which can be found in these products.
It should come as no surprise that hair dyes are composed of a collection of chemicals. But what you may not know is that some of these chemicals have been tied to cancer of the lymph node system known as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, as well as bladder cancer. https://medicine.yale.edu/news/yale-medicine-magazine/increased-risk-of-nonhodgkins-lymphoma-linked-to-hair/ & https://www.webmd.com/beauty/news/20000404/bladder-cancer-hair-dye#2
Some hair dyes even contain lead which has been tied to the damage of the nervous and reproductive systems. And even if you are a guy, or don’t dye your hair, doesn’t mean you get off scot-free. https://www.consumerreports.org/lead/removing-lead-acetate-from-hair-dye/
This is because several of the aforementioned chemicals end up in the water supply when the woman who dyes her hair washes off the majority of the dye during the dying process.
Whether you are part of the large portion of people who dye their hair or not, the chemicals found in hair dye should worry you, and you must work to avoid exposure.
Luckily, there are several steps you can take to reduce your exposure to these toxic chemicals in your everyday life.
