Dangerous beauty products

Postby Ice.Maiden » 21 Mar 2014, 20:25

I've just been reading about some dangerous products which're being sold in the UK and US.

Kala Kola black hair dyes, and Black Rose products contain mercury and lead, which can lead to kidney failure, nerve damage and other health problems.

As if that isn't bad enough, many commonly-used hair dyes, particularly dark ones, are dangerous, and this includes henna products.

that's where i got lost last time...

i donno... everythiung is dangerous. especially if you like it.

:shrug:

i bleach my hair for the simple reason that it makes me look healthier, my own colour has turned literally mousy and it gives my skin a sickly pallor.

so, over the winter when the sun doesn't get to it much, i bleach it.

Well contradictory as it sounds, bleaching your hair's safer than applying dark dyes, but I agree with you that everything seems to be dangerous these days.

I'm having a problem with my own hair atm, and want to have streaks put in. The roots look almost grey in comparison to the rest. I can't do anything about it, except try to blend it in - or leave it as it is, and sorry, but it's not going to be the latter. My skin palour's very white, so if I don't put makeup on when I go out, I look like a corpse!

My sisters, except for one, are the same. Me and the other pallid-looking thing, look as though we've just "risen" - LOOOOOOL, so I'm afraid it's a case of either be as white as a sheet or rush for some cosmetic recovery! : )
