Let's start with the issue: 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. (American Cancer Society, 2015 facts & figures.)
Over 200 chemicals have been found in babies cord blood, these are harmful to the nervous system, and brain, cause cancer and birth defects (EWG, 2009)
These statistics alone should be cause enough to go with organic hair color and organic hair products.
Here is a list of ingredients to avoid:
1) Fragrance-75% of products with fragrance are legally hiding phthalates known as endocrine disruptors, birth defects, breast cancer, diabetes, obesity, autism and ADHD.
2) Parabens-They mimic estrogen linked to breast cancer.
3) Triclosan-Usually found in anti bacterial products. This is registered as a pesticide!!
Have I talked you into going organic yet???
Our skin is a giant organ, and anything we put on our skin will get absorbed into the bloodstream. This is the reason I would urge you to switch to organic hair color. Traditional hair color has very toxic chemicals that get absorbed into your bloodstream. My organic hair color has no Ammonia, Silicones, Parabens, Formaldehyde, Alcohol, or Odor!! The organic color covers grey 100% and comes in many beautiful colors. I also have organic nail polish that is free of the big 5 chemicals. Call me for an appointment to give it a try 239-313-5558
