# Side effects of generic dyes and henna
A university hospital took a survey from 319 adults over 20 years old who have dyed their hair before and found 23.8% have experienced negative side effects. In addition, In addition, it was found that one out of every four people who dye their hair to cover the grays experienced side effects of dyeing as well. Side effects that many people suffer from. What is the reason for this?
Most common dyes are a mixture of ammonia and a hydrogen peroxide. Strongly acidic ammonia helps to penetrate the surface of the hair and help the hair dyes to seep in to the hair. The strong acid hydrogen peroxide plays a role in destroying the hair melanin pigment.
However, the problem is that strong ammonia and hydrogen peroxide not only damage the cuticle layer of the scalp but also cause skin troubles, eye rash and decrease the immunity of the hair. The higher the content of the ingredient, the worse the side effect, and in severe cases, it leads to hair loss.
Henna, which was believed to be safer than regular dyes, is also causing few side effects. Since the natural henna ingredient has limited coloring power, there is no choice but to mix other ingredients.
Particularly, in order to produce a black color, a chemical component called paraphenylenediamine (PPD) has to be added, and the higher the concentration of the component, the stronger the irritation is to the skin. According to the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), long-term skin contact with the ingredient may cause asthma and respiratory failures, and if it has contact with the eyes for a long time, it can cause vision impairment or blindness. Therefore, we recommend that you try patch tests to check for side effects rather than using dyes with no preparation.
