12 Articles About The Hidden Dangers in Hair Dye

I made the above video 11 months ago when I realised how healthy I was beginning to feel when I no longer dyed my hair. Further research in to the dangers of hair dye was enough for me to decide never to dye my hair again. This journey is on my Gracefully Natural channel if you are interested. As someone who has a connection to flowers I also wonder what the chemicals are doing to the environment, after all there are an estimated 35% of women who dye their hair. 

When people ask me why I no longer dye my hair I tell them about the health issues I had. The majority don’t believe me or don’t want to believe me. Those who know me well will tell you that I am not someone who likes to make a statement or to provoke in any way so I really wouldn’t make this up. My intention is not to tell people to stop dyeing their hair, I believe in the freedom to choose. My intention is to bring an awareness to the potential health risks that an allergic reaction to hair dye can cause. Be aware, that is all I am saying.

    Interesting! As someone who dyed my hair for many years, and stopped many years ago with regular thoughts about whether to go back or not, I may well dig into these for some bedtime reading!
    Thanks for sharing them

      Gordon I think it is important to do what feels right for you at the time. I have to say though that most men look very handsome with grey hair :)

    I was just telling someone this morning how I couldn’t bear to let my hair go grey, so perhaps I need to follow your links to do some research. You’re not the only person I know who has flagged up this issue. Thanks for the “heads-up”.

      Harriet I believe that whatever the choice you make, it is good to be informed.
