Hair Dye Alertness
Hair Dyes Linked To Non-Hodgkin's Disease
Researchers have found, that the chemical, para-phenylenediamine (PPD) used in hair dye products can be putting both male and female at risk of getting Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma also known as Lymphosarcoma; Reticulum Cell Sarcoma.
Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma is malignant tumor of lymph glands which is more common then Hodgkin's disease.
The symptoms of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma are:
1. A swollen gland which, can occur anywhere in the body. But, the first ones commonly appear in the neck, armpit or groin. .
2. Feeling generally ill.
3. Losing your appetite.
4. Losing weight.
5. Fever and night sweats.
So, men and women, the next time you go to the salon to have your hair dyed be sure that you ask your hair stylist if she or he is using a PPD-free hair dye product on your hair to help prevent you from getting Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
I asked my hair stylist, Nancy did she know that some hair dye products may have the chemical, para-phenylenediamine in it and can put women at risk of getting Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
She said, "Yes!, "because my instructor told me about it when I was in beauty school." Nancy also told me that all of the hair dye products that she uses in her shop are PPD-free.
So, men and women, the next time you go out shopping for a hair dye product be sure to read the ingredients on the box to see if it has para-phenylenediamine in it.
However, if the store where you regularly shop for hair dye products doesn't have PPD-free hair dye, you can ask the store owner or manager to order some for you.
