Contact Dermatitis. PPD Hair Dye. Serious Allergic Reaction.

Chemical hair dye applicationContact Dermatitis

“Contact dermatitis is the name for any skin inflammation that occurs when the skin’s surface comes in contact with a substance originating outside the body. There are two kinds of contact dermatitis, irritant and allergic.

Irritant contact dermatitis (ICD) is the more commonly reported of the two kinds of contact dermatitis, and is seen in about 80% of cases. It can be caused by soaps, detergents, solvents, adhesives, fiberglass, and other substances that are able to directly injure the skin. Most attacks are slight and confined to the hands and forearms, but can affect any part of the body that comes in contact with an irritating substance. The symptoms can take many forms: redness, itching, crusting, swelling, blistering, oozing, dryness, scaliness, thickening of the skin, and a feeling of warmth at the site of contact. In extreme cases, severe blistering can occur and open sores can form. Jobs that require frequent skin exposure to water, such as hairdressing and food preparation, can make the skin more susceptible to ICD.

allergic contact dermatitis from hair dyeAllergic contact dermatitis (ACD) results when repeated exposure to an allergen (an allergy-causing substance) triggers an immune response that inflames the skin. Tens of thousands of drugs, pesticides, cosmetics, food additives, commercial chemicals, and other substances have been identified as potential allergens. Fewer than 30, however, are responsible the majority of ACD cases. Common culprits include poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac; fragrances and preservatives in cosmetics and personal care products; latex items; and formaldehyde. Many people find that they are allergic to the nickel in inexpensive jewelry. ACD is usually confined to the area of skin that comes in contact with the allergen, typically the hands or face. Symptoms range from mild to severe and resemble those of ICD; a patch test may be needed to determine which kind of contact dermatitis a person is suffering from.”*

Contact dermatitis from hair dyeCulprit: PPD Hair Dye

Hair color manufacturers of chemical hair dye are very happy that there is a dramatic surge in the number of individuals dying their hair in recent years. This includes men and women of all ages, from pre-teens to the elderly. The bad news is that there has also been a dramatic increase in the number of cases of allergic reactions such as: contact dermatitis, severe facial swelling, chronic illnesses and sadly, for some, death. Along with other chemicals in hair dye, the main culprit is para-phenylenediamine (PPD). Concerns about allergic reactions have also impacted laws in many parts of the globe. In fact, several European countries have banned the use of para-phenylenediamine (PPD) in hair dye.

Henna Application. An Easier Natural Hair Dye Process.

www.sababotanical.comHenna Hair Dye Application Made Easier

Lustrous Henna® color hair dye is completely all natural. It’s made by combining pure henna with natural botanical ingredients and comes in various shades including a lovely shade of red hair. No more bright red hair! Lustrous Henna® hair dye comes in a total of nine (9) natural hair color shades: soft black, dark brown, brown, mahogany, red, blonde, medium blonde, golden blonde and medium-golden blonde.

The traditional henna application is no longer a tedious waiting game. The quicker application process of Lustrous Henna® color hair dye is a real time saver when compared to traditional henna application method. It usually takes -only about 90 minutes- from start to finish. Now that’s henna application made easier.

Modern Living vs. Traditional Henna Hair Dye Application

Traditional henna application can take several hours, sometimes a full day to achieve the desired results. This is because you must wait hours for the hair dye to release after mixing the powder. Then wait longer after application of the hair dye for complete henna hair color results.

Solely using pure henna for hair dye produces a red hair shade that is not very attractive on most complexions. Traditional henna application generally produces a bright, bright red hair! Actually, it’s a red-orange or orange-red (take your pick). Do you really want bright red hair? (Didn’t think so).

Lustrous Henna. www.sababotanical.comCondition Your Hair with Lustrous Henna ® Hair Dye

Natural hair is not only left with a radiant color but it is conditioned by the pure henna and other botanical ingredients. Lustrous Henna® hair dye also is appropriately named because hair is conditioned and the natural hair color looks and feels soft, supple and truly lustrous.

Permanent, Synthetic Hair Dyes- Avoid Scalp Damage.

Prevent Hair Loss. www.sababotanical.comAbout Synthetic Hair Dye Products and Hair Loss.

Permanent, synthetic hair dye products containing para-phenylenediamine (PPD), combinations of hydrogen peroxide and ammonia, as well as other chemical ingredients have proven to be extremely harmful to one’s health; especially through overuse. Unfortunately, prolonged use of synthetic hair dyes have caused major damage to the scalp of many consumers, resulting in extreme hair loss.

Avoid Scalp Damage. www.sababotanical.comSynthetic Hair Dyes Danger.

Why can hair loss occur after using permanent hair dyes? Synthetic hair dyes penetrates the cuticle of the hair, damaging it. The hair is exposed to hydrogen peroxide ammonia and other harsh chemical combinations, causing overlapping of cuticular seates to lift from the hair cortex, thereby leading to rapid loss of amino acid. By removing the proteins that build the structural strength, the hair shaft is weakened. The chemical damage results in an easily fractured hair shaft, scalp damage and eventual hair loss.

Problems associated with synthetic hair dyes:

  • Dull, brittle, unmanageable hair; cosmetically unacceptable.
  • Irreversible damage to the protein structure and fracture of the hair shaft, causing hair loss.
  • Epidermal type of melisma on the forehead and neck; black circle around the eyes due to sun sensitization of the skin.

Dermatologists want potential patients to be aware of the risks involved in using synthetic hair dyes. Since the damage can be irreversible, why risk it? Use what many dermatologists recommend: ppd-free hair dye from all-natural henna.

A trustworthy source of all natural henna hair dye can be found at Saba Botanical of USA.

Twyla R. love Lustrous Henna from www.sababotanical.com
“I’m a 54 yrs. old”natural” brunette and LOVE Lustrous Henna and their wonderful customer service with Syed.

A few months ago I was diagnosed with Lymphoma at Mayo Clinic with follow up 3 mos. visits to a Hematologist, blood specialist there. I then began to think about changing some of my lifestyle habits and a NATURAL Hair Color was an easy one to change. I am not on chemo since my Dr. says my own immune system is trying to fight this cancer. Chemo kills the good & the bad, therefore I’m thankful I do still have my hair at this time.

My friend introduced me to Lustrous Henna when I complemented her hair. I didn’t even know she used any type of color on it, because it looked so natural. She ordered my first time with her order,to try it out. So I have twice now, due to shorter hair.So glad I heard about this henna from her!

I am thankful for the Lustrous Henna’s shorter process time compared to others that require an extremely longer process and it leaves my hair in much, much better condition than when I did salon color.

My single priority, due to my health issue,is that it’s safe, plus it looks and feels so natural and healthy. I can’t say enough good about it.

It was my pleasure to visit with Syed a few days ago about Lustrous Henna.His patience and very informative manner is so helpful and refreshing.He is an asset to Lustrous Henna products. He helped me a great deal with tips on how to tone the gray as it grows in from my root line.

I sincerely thank you, Syed and Lustrous Henna for the difference you have made in my life.

I’ll be ordering again soon.”

Warmest Regards,
Twyla R.

Dandruff Remedy for Naturally Healthy Hair

for natural dandruff treatment. www.sababotanical.comDandruff: The Problem

Flaky dead skin that appears on the scalp, eyebrows or around the hairline, ears or nose; range from small and white to large, greasy and yellow.

Dandruff Treatment and Natural Remedies*

  1. Follow a healthy diet that includes flax seed oil.
  2. Daily scalp massage increases blood circulation.
  3. Weekly oil treatment to scalp, washing off in shower after 10-15 minutes will help avoid excessive drying out of skin.
  4. Frequent mild shampoos that include any or all of the following Ayurvedic herbs:

Sapindus_trifoliatus available at www.sababotanical.comShikakai:  A pod that’s considered a superior cleanser for “lustrous long hair” and has been reported as “promoting hair growth and preventing dandruff”. Because of these benefits, this pod was named Shikakai” which translated as, “fruit for hair”.

Soapnut: Indian name Reetha fruit is also called Soapnut, as it contains natural soap. Beside excellent cleansing properties, it is known to keep hair and skin soft.

Amla: A wonderful cleansing agent for both the skin and hair. It imparts luster to hair and protects from dandruff, also helps prevent premature graying. Amla stimulates growth of hair on the scalp, and strengthens the hair roots.

Fenugreek: Seeds contain essential oil that contains 40 different valuable compounds. People used to soak fenugreek seeds overnight, and in the morning grind them into fine paste and apply them to the scalp for half hour for scalp treatment and removal of dandruff. The hair was then washed with Soapnut solution. The same paste was applied on the face at night before going to bed and then washed with warm water in the morning. This was known to prevent one from getting pimples, dryness and early appearance of wrinkles. It improved complexion and make one look younger.


* If the scaling from dandruff is greasy and yellow and does not respond to shampooing, etc. then it may be time to call your doctor; you may have seborrhea dermatitis and need more aggressive treatment.
