DOES HAIR DYE CAUSE CAN­CER?

Shock head­lines claim hair colour­ing could be bad for our well­be­ing

Closer (UK) - - Food -

Al­though re­search found higher rates of breast can­cer among women who colour their hair, the study could not prove that one causes the other, and it wasn’t new re­sults – it an­a­lysed pre­vi­ous data. Can­cer Re­search UK says, “There is no clear ev­i­dence” that hair dyes cause can­cer and things like smok­ing are much more dan­ger­ous. The best ad­vice is to wear gloves, ven­ti­late the room, use dyes that con­tain less than two per cent of chem­i­cals like PPD (p-phenylene­di­amine, a sub­stance de­rived from coal tar) and try to buy ones that in­clude nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents like rose hip and henna.
