The chemical hair dyes contain carcinogens. The ones used at salons and the home based kits, both are dangerous.
The chemicals present in these dyes convert to the most toxic form of carcinogen when they react with tobacco smoke and other pollutants.
One in ten men and more than one third of women dye their hair regularly. This can lead to health risks. The cosmetic industry does not agree to this though.
A company called green chemicals revealed this information. They said all the information is available. They only had to connect everything to come to this conclusion.
The secondary amines found in these dyes end up staying on your skin for years. Over time, they can react with pollutants and tobacco smoke to form N-nitrosamines which is highly toxic.
