I know there's always a risk of using dyes with PPD's (para-phenylenediamine) as it causes the most awful side effects in those who are sensitive to it but I wanted to knock this particular piece of information from the Daily Mail on the head before a nasty panic started. They said - and I quote directly from their website:
"It is feared the chemical para-phenylenediamine (PPD) – present in 99 per cent of all hair dyes – may be linked to her condition."
They were referring to the lady who is now in a coma, suspected of losing consciousness after using a PPD hair dye.
Ninety-nine per cent of all hair dyes do NOT contain PPD's. Only the permanent
ones! It's especially in the dark hair ranges of colour.
For the correct information on this problem please check this website:http://www.allergyuk.org/fs_hairdye.aspx
I'm putting this up because I'm so annoyed that people might read that information and get it wrong. The products on Beeunique
do not contain PPD's to my knowledge, they are vegetable based and semi permanent so they have no need for PPD's. But this kind of wrong information could lead to Nickki and others who sell veggie dyes losing their money! If people think that ALL dyes are harmful then they won't buy them, it's that simple.
For a long time I have suggested that people use semi permanent dyes, mostly because the permanent ones fade into a horrible matt, flat colour. Yes they look great at first but my daughter's beautiful shiny hair is now matt auburn because we used a permanent dye. It looks awful and I'm going to use a semi on it to give it some life back next week.
So now you have another reason to turn to semi's - no PPD's! They don't need them because semi's don't stick. PPD's are used to stick colour to your hair permanently and they are also responsible for that horrible matt look you get after a few weeks washing. So stay away from them.
Don't feel that using another brand other than L'Oreal will help, they all use PPD's in permanent dyes, even the store's own brand does it. "Stick with Semi's" and make that your motto.
