Blonde, Brunette, Burgundy, Auburn – coloring your hair the way you want is quite a trend that most of us follow. But one ought to be more cautious before dyeing one’s locks. Hair dyes contain chemicals like Paraphenylenediamine, resorcinol, ammonia and hydrogen peroxide all of which are very harmful. The symptoms of these allergic reactions may or may not be seen in the first or second usage but the allergy slowly develops depending on sensitivity of our system. The allergy usually begins with slight itching or burning and gets worse each time you color your hair. Therefore it is always recommended to do a patch test before application of the dye. Look out for signs of itchiness or burning sensation for at least 48 hours before you use it completely. In case you find you are allergic, then next time on go for henna or non-toxic options. But remember, don’t overlook even a mild reaction because it can turn into something serious later.
