Their study was published in a respected scientific journal. The British scientists also said that chemicals in permanent hair dyes can react with cigarettes smoke and other chemicals in the air. They can form the most powerful cancer causing compound known to man.
One in every three women dyes her hair, and one in ten men regularly colors their hair. So, the British researchers said that it’s imperative that the risk to health is multiplied. But, the cosmetics industry declines that and said that this is not true.
Well, this warning comes from British scientists at the Leeds based company – “Green chemicals”, who conducted a review of the chemistry surrounding hair dye. The British scientists said that all the info was already there and all they did was simply “joined the dots” and found the connection with cancer. These scientists warn that chemicals called secondary amines, which are often found in all permanent hair dyes or are formed in them, can penetrate the human skin and stay on the hair for several weeks, months or even years after the dye is applied. So, the scientists found that these secondary amines can react with cigarette smoke and exhaust fumes, and form highly poisonous chemicals called – N-nitrosamines.
The Leeds researchers said that they can still be generated with a simple chemical reaction. We can also mention that hair dye has previously related to a range of cancer, including tumors of the breast, brain, bladder and even leukemia. Many different studies have confirmed that these compounds also increase the number of people allergic to their contents, sometimes even with fatal results. #Consciousvibrancy
