Ingredients to avoid while buying a Hair Colorant/Dye

22nd November 2020
"Watch out for harmful ingredients before you and your hair suffer."

Who doesn't like dyed hair that brings a better glow to our skin than our natural colored hair? Dyeing hair is fun but the aftermath might be preposterous for many of us. From frizziness to split-ends and extreme hair fall, your hair may face several problems after dyeing. The aftermath might frustrate you to the level where you wish to go completely bald, and believe me, few of them do. If you do not want to face such problems, then you must be cautious while buying your hair color. Not every ingredient in your hair dye is beneficial for your hair. Some are just chemicals to give a pleasant scent while applying but are harmful to your hair. To put you at ease, we've listed out the major ingredients that must be avoided in a hair dye to prevent your hair from any form of side-effects.

Paraphenylenediamine(PPD)

PPD is an ingredient that is widely used in most hair colorants, mostly in permanent hair colors. They are also known as oxidative. PPD is not really harmful if it's used up to 2% of the hair dye. But, if a hair dye contains PPD above the level, you may face several problems. Many people also face allergic reactions to PPD; as a result, it is widely discouraged. Even though PPD's usage is restricted in other cosmetic products, it has not been banned in any country till now. If you have used a hair dye with PPD make sure to follow the instructions strictly as it may result in something harmful otherwise. You can also find much PPD-free hair dye as well. 

Para-toluenediamine(PTD)

PTD is used in most of the permanent hair colors. Natural hair color safety should be paramount in your choice of hair coloring dye. Many people also have reported having allergic reactions to PTD. The European Commission (Health and Consumer Safety) has concluded that the use of toluene-2, 5-diamine cannot be considered safe for hair coloring or hair shaft. So, try to avoid any PTD as far as possible. 

Quaternium-15

If you search Quaternium-15 on the internet, you'll find some articles referring to it as- a cosmetic ingredient to be afraid of or skin toxicant and allergen. Quaternium-15 can cause irritation and sensitization. It may also cause allergic reactions to your eyes. It is also a formaldehyde-releasing preservative. It may even lead to contact dermatitis. Mainly, hairdressers and janitors are affected by this. Even though the Cosmetics Directives of the EU has agreed up to 0.2% presence of the Quaternium in cosmetic products, try to avoid the products that contain quaternary ammonium compounds by reading the labels. 

Resorcinol

Resorcinol is largely used in the rubber industry. I guess this sentence clears up your thought. Even though the chemical is combined with other chemicals such as potassium hydroxide to enable its safe use, it has a skin-deep hazard ratio of 9. Also, Resorcinol is the primary cause of hair dye related contact dermatitis. So, check out the label while buying hair dye and try to avoid it.

For different factors, when this style instrument came along, several women leaned towards it. Curling irons are still the most economical alternative, particularly with recent units built with ceramic and tourmaline barrels. As it can sound that every curling iron is just the same, there are numerous variants accessible. A few examples are spiraling irons and spinning irons.

 

Hairbrushes

On longer hair, a brush is commonly used but may also be used for shorter hair, which is generally dealt with utilizing a comb. A flat brush is usually used after sleep to unwind clean and tidy hair; a round brush is usually used for styling and curling hair, particularly by a skilled stylist, and with a blowdryer. To straighten hair, a paddle brush is used, although not all of them work; they are generally used on untidy unkept hair. A hairbrush is also good for lifting loose hair and increasing scalp drainage.

Today, the vast majority of barbers in developed countries use electric hair clippers. From discount consumer units to high-end specialist units, both of these businesses sell electric hair clippers in various grades. Some consumer-grade clippers are meant for individual buyers' personal use and are sometimes sold in packages containing many attachments, such as clipper guides (for changing the cutting length). Over the years, the quality gap between the market grade and specialist grade electric clippers has declined considerably.
